Becky Grienke

Friday, July 13, 2012

Becky L. Grienke, age 52, of Storm Lake, Iowa and formerly of Alta, Iowa died Saturday, July 7, at the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center in Storm Lake.

Those wishing to send on-line condolences may do so via: www.fratzkejensen.com.

Becky Lynn Grienke, the daughter of Blondina (Bunney) Grienke and James Grienke, was born in Cherokee, on April 17, 1960. She attended Alta schools and went to work for the Law Firm of Dan Connell and John Duffy, while still in high school and barely 17 years old. After Judge Duffy was appointed to the Bench, she continued to work for Dan Connell until July 7, 2012.

Becky was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith and remained a lifetime member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Alta.

When Becky was diagnosed with cancer, she faced her biggest challenge with dignity. She would spread her positive and uplifting spirit on when others joined her in their own battle -- she was truly an inspiration to many.

Preceding Becky in death was her brother-in-law, Duane Fahr.

Left to cherish her memory include her best and special friend, Steve Tate of Alta; her parents, Jim and Blondina of Alta; seven sisters: Jean Sticken of Omaha, Neb.; Ellen Wood and Claudina Grienke, both of Alta; Julie Fahr of Bloomfield, Neb.; Chris (Clem) Ledoux of Alta; Nancy (Scott) Tegarden of Summerfield, S.C.; and Debbie (John) Gilmer of Friend, Neb.; her many extended family members and friends, who will miss the strength, hope and laughter she shared with all she touched.
