Georgia Jean (Greiner) Williams, age 78, of Austin, MN went home to be with the Lord on July 13, 2017 after a long battle with cancer. Georgia was born February 11, 1939 in Lyle, MN to Robert and Blanche (Bedford) Greiner. She graduated from Lyle HS (’57) and attended St. Paul Bible College. On October 24, 1959, Georgia was united in marriage to Hilmore Nelson Williams of Osage, Iowa. They were blessed to raise three children, Julie, Darwin and Kim. Georgia will be remembered for her generosity, kindness and fervent prayer.  She enjoyed loving relationships with her children, grandchildren and extended family. She loved to do puzzles, play games, and sent countless cards of encouragement to those around her. Georgia ministered as a pastor’s wife at the Hawley Alliance Church 1976-1979, Grace Bible Church of Highmore, SD 1979-1985, Remer Alliance Church 1985-1994, Echo Alliance Church 1994-1997, and at Faith Church 2005-2014 in Austin. Georgia was interviewed on an Iowa Christian radio station (KCJY) in September 2016 during her time of remission and healing following chemotherapy treatment Oct-Dec 2015. She lovingly shared, “I knew God was with me and He was going to heal me. I would either live longer or I might die, but death is a healing too. So I just kept praying to God saying, whatever happens, I will give you the glory because I know how much you love ME and I know how much I love YOU.”

Georgia‘s memory will remain in the hearts of her husband, Hilmore; her daughter Julie (Travis) Schmidt; her son Darwin (Trixie) Williams; her daughter Kimberly (Steven) Phillips; 5 grandchildren: Chelsey (Jon) Odell, Joshua Phillips, Christine Phillips, Cara Schmidt, Isa Williams; 1 great-grandchild Brycen Odell; her sisters Bonny (Warren) Toavs and Rebecca (Harlan) Greiner-Pepper, and a host of other relatives and friends. Georgia was preceded in death by her parents Robert Leo and Blanche Belle Greiner; her sister Betty Grinstead, and her grandsons Ian Williams and Daniel Phillips.

Funeral services will be held at Faith Church, 1800 12th St SW, Austin, MN 55912 at 11 am on Saturday, July 22, 2017 with Pastor Mike Sager officiating.  Visitation will take place one hour prior to the service on Saturday at church.
