Gretchen Werner Mokry
This morning God has another angel. Gretchen Werner Mokry has peacefully transitioned to a better world. We were reading poetry together and she was at ease. Gretchen is a wonderful partner, mother, sister, friend and lover of the earth and ocean. She was always a dancer first, an accomplished architect, painter, hiker, and adventure woman.
Growing up in LA and NY, Gretchen studied art and architecture in London, followed by NY. In architecture her passion was in civil projects helping others, building schools for underprivileged in relief areas to include Haiti, Peru, Japan (post earthquake) and many countries throughout the African continent. Some projects she was involved in include the Frank Gehry Disney Concert Hall (LA), The "Women's University" campus in Riyadh with the Prince of Saudi Arabia as client, working with AFH & FIFA as the client-built city center soccer fields and support buildings for poor youth in Africa prior to the Worlds Cup, the Aids Memorial in Golden Gate Park, a Synagogue, a Buddhist Temple campus and most recently a halfway house for recovering addicts in San Francisco.
Always a Dancer first.
When she entered the dance floor, all eyes are always on her!
Gretch competed at the silver level in Ballroom, Samba, Rumba, Cha-Cha-Cha, Paso Doble, Jive, Argentine Tango, East Coast and West Coast swing.
A solid white iris bloomed yesterday for her in mid-January and as I write this hummingbirds are sipping nectar from flowers she planted.
"And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance"
Dance and be free my love!
