Obituary

Ms. Evelyn M. Greco, age 82 of Nashville, passed away at her home on January 11, 2012. Evelyn was born January 23, 1929 in Little Rock, Arkansas to the late Ruby and John Flemming. She was the executive secretary of Mercedes Benz, where she coordinated events and showed vehicles to customers. Her sons spoke in her memory that she was a beautiful, courageous woman who was strongly independent. They said she wasn’t afraid of any task, and that is why they admired her so much. She leaves behind her two sons to share the wisdom, independence, and her courageous outlook on life: Michael Greco of Nashville, James Greco of Chicago; granddaughter: Jackqueline Greco of Chicago. Cremation Society of Tennessee is assisting the family with arrangements.

  1. To James & Michael, I had the privilege of working with your Mother for many years at News 2 and yes, she was a very wise and very independent woman. Eve and I shared many good times together and had many laughs. She was also a sharing person as I still have a pair of pearl earrings that she gave me some years ago. My heart is really sad to learn of her passing however, we all know that she is in a better place. My prayers and thoughts are certainly with you. Love to Eve’s Family Frances Pratt

  2. I worked with Eve for many years at WKRN-TV and loved her very much. She was an extraordingary woman and she loved her family very much. I can close my eyes and hear her laugh! We’ve laughed, we cried and she kicked my fanny when it needed a good kicking which was frequently. I’m so sorry that we’ve lost her but so grateful that she was in my life and was my friend. Lynda

    Eve was my boss at Mercedes Benz in 2000 yet she was more than such – she was a wonderful lady I could confide to about anything. She was REAL! I always adored her history she told me of being around when the music for the movie “Shaft” was recorded. She adored those times, yes sporting her bell bottoms and Afro as she told me. She wasn’t afraid to be politically correct – she never walked around the subject she just said it out bluntly. Never before and never again have I had a mother figure as down to earth as she. I recall during the interview she asked me “Do you drink?” Then say “If you don’t you will.” Then she asked what did I expect to be paid – I told her some number per hour and she said “It’s expensive to be a woman so I will pay you this” (amount at the time). I will miss her for as long as I live and I am sure when my time is called she will be waiting up in heaven welcoming me and say “About time you join the party.” She was legendary.
