Barbara K. Greiner, 81, passed away on Tuesday, August 31, 2021. She was born on November 5, 1939, in Meriden, CT, the daughter of late Alexander and Anne Kornick. Barbara graduated from Meriden High School in 1958. Following she went to work at John Hancock Insurance, where she met her best friend of close to 40 years, Beverly Marshall. She also worked for DelMonte and M&M Mars Company as a sales rep until retiring in 2002.

She married her high school sweetheart and best friend, David W. Greiner, in Meriden, CT, on September 12, 1964. Barbara was a loyal friend, who loved being part of the Queen Bee's, a group of her closest friends that had a fondness for all things bees. She enjoyed reading, spending time with her family, shopping on QVC and playing slots at the casino: she was truly a lucky lady.

My sincere sympathy to the Grenier family.
I was a year ahead of Barbara at MHS and knew her slightly then. Many years later we happened to work together in 1974 or 1975 processing Medicare claims. In spite of the strict climate at work we managed to have a lot of laughs and developed a mutual, very strong dislike for the job. We couldn’t wait to find another job which Barbara did first (at DelMonte) I think. I followed shortly after.
She was a bright light in our dismal jobs with her ready smile and laugh, a wonderful person to be sure.
