Condolence & Memory Journal

Bob's late wife, Mary Ann, and I worked together in the Advertising and Public Relations Department at National City Bank in downtown Cleveland, Ohio from 1960 to 1962. Mary Ann was my Matron of Honor when I got married on September 30, 1961. I only met Bob a few times but remember him as such a nice guy. Bob and Mary Ann were so devoted to each other.

Thoughts and prayers to the Greve family. I remember seeing all of you at St. Titus through the years. I remember your dad working the polls at election time too.

Bob met life's problems with a smile and a solution. He was so smart and down to earth and the epitome of the perfect family man--loyal and kind. I'll miss talking with him and his wonderful stories of his experiences. Kathleen Stein
