Lillian Louise Greener, had generous nature

September 11, 2019

Lillian Louise Greener, 89, of Lewes passed away Sunday, Sept. 8, 2019, at the Delaware Hospice Center in Milford.  She was born March 2, 1930, daughter of the late Henry and Lillian Chance Covington. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Randolph L. Greener, a son, Dean Greener, a son-in-law, Joseph Riley, and six siblings.

Louise, as many knew her, was a devoted member of East Gate Presbyterian Church in Millsboro.  She was known by many for her outgoing personality and her most generous nature.  Making quilts was a labor of love for her and many are blessed to be recipients of her handiwork.  Louise enjoyed braiding rugs and donating clothing wherever she could to help anyone in need. She was very proud of her family's English heritage and was an avid reader of its literature. However, her staunch patriotism for the country she called home was always visible by the flying of an American Flag whenever possible.

 She is survived by three sons: Randy L. Greener (Hilda) of Smyrna, Lance M Greener (Linette) of Milton and Shawn M. Greener (Colleen) of Middletown;  her daughter, Catherine Riley of Lewes;  12 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and one great- great-granddaughter.

 Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 14, at Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Atkins-Lodge Chapel, 16961 Kings Highway, Lewes, where a viewing will begin at 10 a.m. Interment will follow the services at Henlopen Memorial Park, Milton.
