Winifred Gretchen Apostoli, 75, of Douglasville, died Monday, Feb. 12, 2018.

Per her wishes, she was cremated and a Memorial Service will be held at Hightower’s Memorial Chapel on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018 at 3 p.m. with Fr. Brandon Duke officiating. Ms Donna Lancaster Reed will deliver the Eulogy and people who attend will have an opportunity to express their thoughts and love for Gretchen.

Gretchen cared for and loved animals, and the family feels it would be appropriate that, in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to the Douglas County Animal Shelter, 2171 Mack Road in Deer Lick Park, Douglasville, Georgia 30135.
