KEOTA -Kathryn Greiner, age 79, of Keota, died Thursday, August 10, 2017 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Kathryn was born September 27, 1937 in Fairfield, Iowa, the daughter of John F. and Cecilia Arndt Millane. She graduated from Fairfield High School and Ottumwa Heights College. She married Edward Greiner on December 28, 1968 in Fairfield.

She was a member of St. James Catholic Church in Washington, Iowa. After her children left the home, she began working at Halcyon House, in Washington.

Kathryn enjoyed reading, playing cards, and puzzles of any kind. She loved going for walks outside and loved animals. She was naturally a giving person who loved to help others. Above all, she loved being a mom and grandma, and was happiest when spending time with her family.

Craig and Kathy Shellady on Aug 12, 2017

We were so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother and grandmother. I remember her well as such a soft spoken, sweet woman. The first time I met her was when she and your dad came to our home and bought our double twin stroller. Who would imagine that I would teach one of those twins years later. She left such a great legacy in her children, all so talented and hard working. I know she will live on in the memories of her family forever. Blessings and prayers to all of you during this difficult time.
Craig and Kathy Shellady
