Obituary

Laurence A. "Larry" Greening, 93, of Menominee, passed away Monday, May 8, 2017, at Bay Area Medical Center. He was born April 24, 1924 in Peshtigo to Charles and Esther (Smith) Greening.
After completing high school, Larry entered the United States Army, serving during World War II and later at duty stations in Japan. After discharge from the Army, Larry worked in Chicago where he met Margaret "Marge" Gerling. They were married Sept. 24, 1949 in LaGrange, Ill. Larry's work took them to several locations around the county before coming to Menominee to reside.
Larry first worked in Menominee for the former Pfankuch and VanDomelen Furniture Stores. Later he was employed for many years as an Insurance Representative for Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. In semi-retirement, he continued to work for the Reiswitz Insurance Agency in Marinette. Larry loved to play golf and had been a member of the Menominee Lions Club. He was also known for his longtime visiting ministry to shut-ins and residents of area nursing homes.
He is survived by one son, Mark, of Menominee; a daughter-in-law, Sharon Greening of Marinette; three granddaughters and seven great-grandchildren, Cara Kloida and her children, Felicity and Zoie; Sara (Misko) Bolcek and their children, Haley and Gavin; and Melissa (Kurt) Klimek and their children, Caleb, Cooper and Connor.
Larry was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret; and a son, Richard Greening.
