Kathryn Greiner

Kathryn Greiner, age 84, passed away on Saturday, July 21st, at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.  Kathryn was born in What Cheer, IA to Kenneth and Marie Wilson.  She moved to Des Moines in 1953 and worked several years in offices for the State of Iowa.

In addition to her full time job, Kathryn worked for many decades as a part time ticket taker for several events at the Iowa State Fairgrounds, including 43 straight years at the State Fair.  She enjoyed the spectacle of the fair and was particularly fond of the horse competitions.  She enjoyed shopping with QVC and watching sports on television, especially men’s and women’s college basketball and baseball.  Kathryn is survived by her nephew, nieces, and many friends.

Per Kathryn’s wishes no memorial was held.  In lieu of flowers donations may made to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa.
