Tribute to Grete Hale
Grete Hale; a businesswoman, philanthropist, and community supporter, passed away on October 28, 2022.
We at PAL Ottawa are lucky to have had the opportunity of working with and being supported by Grete. In the beginning years of PAL Ottawa, Grete and her sister Gay Cook graciously and tirelessly organized a fundraising event at Grete's home, Bayne House.
On top of being a member and supporter of PAL Ottawa, Grete was a board member of countless organizations, was one of the founding members of Ottawa Community Foundation, was the founder of the Friends of the National Library of Canada, and was an Order of Canada recipient. Grete was an important person to many in her close and far-reaching communities.
We send our condolences to her family, friends, and all that knew and loved her.
