Obituary for Marilyn Ann Grenz

Marilyn Ann Grenz was born January 8, 1931 to Albert and Edna (Gust) Schaffer at Elkton, South Dakota. She was baptized and confirmed in Trinity Lutheran Church in Elkton. She grew up in Elkton where her father was a John Deere implement dealer, and she attended school there, graduating from Elkton High School in 1948. She was active in Glee Club and school plays, and also worked for a short time doing waitress work, and as a check-out girl at the local grocery store. After graduation she worked at the Tyler Hospital for two years. On June 9, 1950 Marilyn and Lloyd Grenz of Lake Benton were married at Trinity Lutheran Church. Their union was blessed with two sons and 60 years of life together. They resided on the Grenz farm until 1962, and in this time she was active in the Ladies Aid at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Verdi Township and also in Extension clubs. In 1962 they moved to Lake Benton, and in 1964 moved to Tyler. After moving to Tyler she worked at the Tyler Hospital doing many things, but her most loved duties were doing floor work and working in surgery. She retired in January 1996 after devoting over 30 years to the Hospital. Lloyd died in 2010. She continued to live at home and entertain family and friends. In 2012 she moved into Danebod Village and really enjoyed her time there. In April 2015, Marilyn moved into the Sunrise Manor Nursing home in Tyler where she passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at the age of 86 years, five months and 14 days.

Marilyn was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Tyler. She enjoyed traveling, fishing, knitting, card playing, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
