Shirley Griner

April 28, 1931 — May 6, 2016

Shirley Elaine (Coe) Griner, 85, died May 6, 2016 at her Kamiah, Idaho home.

Shirley was born to Llyod Eldon and Mildred Pearl (Hill) Coe on April 28, 1931. She brought a ray of sunshine to what would have been a dreary spring day in Rapid City, SD.

She was an amazing woman, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great- great grandmother and friend. Often referred to as the back bone of the family, not taking guff from anyone. Although very opinionated, she was a passionate woman and cared deeply for many. Day or night, you knew you could call on grandma Shirley, whether you needed to talk because you were upset , someone to pray with because you were scared, a ride home because you had too much to drink, or just someone to listen because you needed to get something off your chest. She was one to give you the shirt off her back or the last dime in her pocket without thinking twice about it.

Grandma Shirley stood strong in her faith and religious beliefs. She always made sure everyone knew that God was just a prayer away and would never leave you. Many memories of church were shared between her children and grandchildren.

A devoted wife and mother, she married her husband of 65 years Weldon Carl Griner, June 2nd 1950, after a brief marriage and death of her first husband, John Pimble. She had three children; Candace (Pimble) Maki, Phyllis "Carla" (Griner) Cutler, and Carl Phillip Griner, nine grandchildren; Chris, Craig, and Shannon Maki, Carlane "Dede" Endicott, Shirla and Chelsie Cutler, Kyle, Zane and Echo Griner and numerous great and great great grandchildren.

She was proceeded in death by both parents, a brother, a son-in-law and her husband.

Funeral Services were held Friday, May 13, 2016 at Trenary Funeral Chapel in Kooskia, Idaho. Brother Robert Anothony officiated.
