Defiance Gregg was a popular astrologer.

Her parents moved their family from New York to Vincentown, NJ in 1937. After leaving school, Defiance Gregg began her career by working for Bell Telephone Company. She married in January 1944. She left the work force until her children went to school returning to work as a switchboard operator. In 1957, Defiance Gregg, her husband and two sons moved to California and then to Alaska in 1958. Her next job was at a PX in Alaska as a cashier.

Later, traveling with her husband to where his civil service work took him, Defiance worked for Green Thumb which put seniors to work in subsidized employment in Polk City, Florida for over a year. Then, she lived in Thailand during the Vietnam War. In June 1967, Defiance’s husband died in a work-related accident in Thailand.

After returning home, Defiance's family talked her into becoming an attendant for State Colony for the Retarded to get her mind off her husband’s death. It was also during this time that Defiance attended college in 1968 where she studied astrology and writing.

Later, she became a partner in a newspaper circulation promotion business for more than ten years. She lived in Alaska for about twenty years and during the last five years she lived as a companion to her fisherman son on a boat in Alaska. She moved to Oregon in May 1989. During those years, she continued to study and become competent in astrology.

In early 2003, Gregg formed a discussion group on the Art of Astrology at the Pepin Garden Court Yard by her home in Seaside and also taught astrology at the local library. She was a long-time subscriber and member of Mercury Hour and other astrological organizations and groups. In addition, she loved animals and to feed the birds on the beach.

In March 2007 she suffered a stroke and left Seaside, OR to live with her son and daughter-in-law in Salem, OR. She died at the age of 86.
