Larry Greiner

Riverside- Larry M. Greiner, 73, of Riverside, Iowa went to be with Jesus on Dec. 21, 2021.

Larry was the son of Harold and Dorothy Greiner. He graduated from Sigourney High School

(Sigourney, Iowa) then went to Iowa State University where he received his Bachelor of Science

in Agriculture Education. In 1970 he married his college sweetheart, Teri, and they began their

family life together. For 31 years, Larry worked for Farmers National Company in farm

management and real estate. Raising their family in Iowa City, they became actively involved at

Parkview Church where Larry served in various ministries and on committees, including the

building committee for the expansion of the facility in 2000. Larry retired in 2014, and moved to

an acreage where he enjoyed working outside and in his wood shop. In recent years he enjoyed

friendships through his involvement with the Early Morning Optimist Club.

More important than the work and ministry Larry did was his relationship with Jesus Christ. John

14:6 says, “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the

Father except through me”.

Larry loved his family dearly and served them faithfully. He is survived by his wife of 51 years,

Teri Greiner, daughters Tracey Wylie (Scott) and Christina Deppen (Phil), and son Nathan

Greiner (Renee), grandsons Tristan Wylie (Madie) and Trent Wylie, Bryce and Garrett Deppen,

Beau and Dane Greiner, and great-granddaughter Ava Wylie.

He is also survived by his siblings Jane Glenn (Gary), Steve Greiner (Muriel), Sally Peiffer (Joe),

and Susan Rogers along with several nieces and nephews.

Larry was preceded in death by Harold and Dorothy Greiner and brother-in-law Todd Rogers.

Parkview Church, where there was a time of visitation from 9:30 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. Saturday

at the church. Private family graveside services was held at the Sigourney Cemetery

following a reception at the church. In lieu of flowers memorial donations can be made in
