OBITUARY - JENNIE VIOLA (MARSHALL) GREGG

Jennie Viola GREGG entered into eternal life Friday, January 12, 1996.

Jennie was born May 20, 1910 in Rural Harrison county near Hatfield, Missouri, the daughter of Otis and Maude (SMITH) MARSHALL. Jennie attended Harrison county rural school. She was united in marriage with Alvin L. GREGG on March 24, 1928. To this union were born two sons, Calvin L. GREGG and E. Doyal GREGG and one daughter, Viola LaVon REEVES. Jennie and Alvin were able to enjoy 66 years of marriage before his death in July of 1994.

Her delights in life were her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, and family, along with her home and garden.

Jennie was a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. They farmed in rural Ringgold county, retiring from the farm in the early 70's, then moved into Mount Ayr. Jennie joined the Pleasant Hills Assembly of God Church in 1949 and moved her membership to the Mount Ayr Assembly of God Church in 1974.

Left to cherish her memory are two sons, Calvin and Fern GREGG of Mount Ayr and Doyal and Dora GREGG of Anamosa, Iowa; 15 grandchildren; 35 great-grandchildren; and 16 great-great-grandchildren; three sisters, Opal ADKISSON of Roseville, Illinois, Inez KNEEDLER of Mount Ayr, Iowa and Lucille WEBB of Des Moines, Iowa.

To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go--
I have so many things to see and do.
You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you each have shown,
But now it's time I traveled on alone.
So grieve awhile for me, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
It's only for awhile that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart.
Thou you can't see or touch me, I'll be near
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
All my love around you real and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smale and say, "Welcome Home!"

Services were held at the Wilson-Watson Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa on January 15, 1996. Officiating with Rev. John BIDDLE and Rev. David CANFIELD.
