On March 5, 1962 Elma married William (Billy) Greer and they both moved to Chicago, Illinois in October of 1962. In July of 1978 is when her and her family moved to Glendale, Arizona. She loved working at the Peoria Unified School District, Pioneer School, where after 20 years of working she retired in 2003.

Throughout her life she enjoyed watching her sons play baseball and basketball in school, cooking, baking and decorating during the holidays and always had time for a crossword puzzle. Elma loves her Elvis music and watching westerns (especially with John Wayne) Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Barnaby Jones, Touched by an Angel and any Law and Order episode.

Elma was the life of the party with her infectious smile, outgoing personality and laugh. She had a soft heart, was thoughtful, generous, kind, funny, witty and caring. She loved spoiling her grandkids by taking them to the park, making them their favorite meal and surprising them with gifts. She will be missed.
