Esther Irene Greek was born December 4, 1924, in Phillips, NE, daughter of Henry and Anna (Hamer) Tobiason. She was raised in Nebraska graduating from Silver Creek High School. Esther met Maurice Greek after his service in the United States Army and the couple married on December 4, 1943. Esther and Maurice spent their first years together in various communities in Nebraska and Iowa, finally settling in the La Porte City area. She led a busy life keeping their home and raising their children. She will be particularly remembered for her raisin cream pies! Esther was an active member at church and her faith was a central aspect of her life. She would spend 45 minutes each night before bed praying for all of her family, friends and neighbors. Esther and Maurice travelled after his retirement, wintering in southern Texas and taking lengthy trips to Alaska, Europe and Israel. Most of all, Esther enjoyed her family – especially her many grandchildren!

Esther passed away on Sunday, March 11, 2018, at the La Porte City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center at the age of 93 years. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Maurice in 2004; her daughter, Georgia; son, Terry; a great-grandson, Caleb Harrill and her brother, Emil Tobiason. Esther is survived by her sons Roger (Judy) Greek of La Porte City and Delbert (Joyce) Greek of Gilbert, AZ; daughter, Berneita Greek of Marietta, GA; sister-in-law, Patricia Tobiason of Columbus, NE; 9 grandchildren; 24 great-grandchildren; and 13 great-great grandchildren.

Memorials may be directed to the Heartland Community Church of La Porte City.
