Marie Elizabeth Griess was born April 4, 1961, in Cedar Rapids, the daughter of Theo and Betty Lou Haas Griess. She graduated from Amana High School in 1979 and was a great athlete. She was an avid sports fan of the Iowa Hawkeyes, Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Bears. She was currently employed by the Amana Meat Shop in Amana and was a lifelong member of the Amana Church Society.
Marie was a person of not wanting, but rather of giving, especially when it came to her daughter and grandchildren. She was happy and had a very positive attitude that carried on throughout her illness. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew her.
The family would like to especially thank Iowa City Hospice, Paula Welsh, Dean Kinzenbaw Jr., Loves for Marie benefit and all the others from “Team Marie” for all of their care and support for Marie during her illness.
