Delilah K. ‘Billie’ Greenway
Delilah K. Greenway, “Billie,” passed away at her home in Twin Falls, Ida. on July 2, 2012 and now rests in peace with our Lord. She lived a wonderful 89 years.
Billie or GG, as she was known to most, was born March 4, 1923 to William Kewen and Martha Mead at home in a small coal mining town in Illinois. She moved as an infant from Illinois to Detroit, Mich. and grew up in both Michigan and Illinois. As a young adult, she moved to San Diego, Calif. where she met and married Herbert W. Greenway on June 28, 1942.
They were blessed with three children, Susan Lynne Greenway Stein, Deborah Lee Greenway Proctor and Douglas Robert Greenway, whom they raised in Bishop, Calif. Herb passed in 1999. She worked as a bookkeeper most of her life. She attended the Episcopal Church in Bishop and was an intregal part of that congregation. In 2006 Billie left Bishop to live with Deborah and Tom Proctor in Twin Falls, Ida.
She enjoyed people and all who met her were instantly taken by her happy attitude shown by her infectious smile and giggle. She enjoyed visiting and loved to tell her tales of a “girl.”
Billie was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Herbert Greenway; and her daughter, Susan Lynn Greenway Stein. She is survived by her daughter, Deborah Greenway Proctor (Tom); son, Douglas Greenway (Marilyn); five grandchildren; and 13 great-grandchildren
A wonderful woman who inspired everyone she met, Billie will be missed by many.
A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Friday, July 13, 2012 to begin at 1 p.m. at the Crossroads Methodist Church in Kimberly, Ida. with Pastor Gary Ross officiating. Light refreshments will follow. Her ashes will be placed to rest next to Herbert in Bishop in the near future.
