Hilda Florence Greiman, the daughter of J.L. “Lew” and Esther (Schuldt) Abele, was born November 2, 1924 on the family farm southwest of Garner.  She was baptized and received her spiritual training at Liberty Methodist Church southwest of Garner where she accepted the Lord as her Savior.  Hilda attended rural schools in Liberty Township and graduated from Garner High School in 1942 with a Normal Training Teaching Certificate.  During high school, she was active in band and vocal.  Hilda taught in the rural schools of Hancock County for three years.  On December 28, 1944 she was married to Dale Greiman at Liberty Methodist Church.  Together, they started farming on the homestead southwest of Garner where Dale was born.  To this union five children were born.  Hilda helped with the farming operation, as well as enjoyed gardening vegetables and beautiful flowers.  In November of 1974, they moved into Garner when Dale’s health began declining.


Hilda loved music.  She was active in numerous music ministries at Zion E & R Church including directing the senior choir and leading Sunday school and VBS music.  She led many Bible studies and was a voracious reader.  Hilda volunteered countless hours at many different organizations including 4-H and County and State Extension Councils.  She also volunteered at Hospice of North Iowa for 15 years.  She was a part of the ONO Homemakers Club, Garner Progressive Club and the Clear Lake Christian Women’s Club.


Above all, Hilda valued her faith and family.  She always had time and love for her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
