Raising Reward to Bring Justice for Greta Putnam !

In the early hours of November 8, 2018, the world lost a wonderful, selfless woman to a violent crime.  Greta Jayne Putnam was brutally murdered in her Oroville home by an unknown assailant.  This person or persons entered her home while she lay sleeping and took her life in a horrific manner.  This act of evil has left a void in the lives of her family.  She was 86 years young and left this world before her time and definitely before we were ready to say goodbye.

Greta loved life…spending time with her family and friends brought her immense joy.  She was an amazing cook, loved to sew, quilt and being outdoors.  Two of her favorite pastimes were camping and fishing.

The family has set up this GoFundMe account with the hope of raising the funds necessary to offer a reward to aid in the investigation of her murder.  We are desperately seeking justice, but more importantly, we want the monster(s) behind bars before another family has to go through this nightmare.  Whoever is responsible is out there; free to commit this heinous crime again.

Greta Jayne would have been celebrating her 87th birthday on February 4, but instead we will be gathering as family and friends to remember this amazing woman.

Please help support the Justice for Greta Jayne Putnam Campaign.  All funds received will be used solely for this purpose.   Someone out there has the answers we are seeking and a reward may be the incentive necessary to capture and prosecute the animal(s) responsible.  

Any amount you can spare would be appreciated.

Thank you
