Ambrose "Amby" J. Grellner

Ambrose “Amby” J. Grellner, age 77 of Rich Fountain, departed this life on Thursday, September 21, 2017, at his residence.

Ambrose was born December 6, 1939, in Rich Fountain, a son to the late Albert and Mary (Bock) Grellner.

Ambrose attended Sacred Heart Catholic School in Rich Fountain and graduated in 1957 from Fatima High School in Westphalia.

On June 19, 1962, Ambrose joined the Army Reserves and served until February 18, 1968.

On October 20, 1973, he was united in marriage to Miss Helen Kloch at St. Peters Catholic Church in Jefferson City.  She survives at their home in Rich Fountain.

Farming was truly a joy to him, never seen as an occupation but a way of life to provide for his family.  He began working with his father on the three-generation family farm as a child and continued to expand and nurture it with his wife by his side to hand down his knowledge and love for the land to his daughters and grandsons. 

Ambrose was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rich Fountain and had also attended St. George Catholic Church in Linn.  Ambrose was always a giving person and truly supportive of his family and community.

He enjoyed tractor pulling events, watching his grandson’s baseball games, Cardinals baseball on tv, checking cattle or delivering snacks with a smile on his Kioti to Nathan and Nevan while raking and baling hay.

In addition to his spouse of 43 years, Ambrose is survived by: two daughters, Lori (Larry) Woehr of Rich Fountain and Lisa (Kevin) Fincher of Linn; two grandsons who worked beside him on the family farm, Nathaniel and Nevan Woehr; three brothers, Fred Grellner of Linn, George and Bob Grellner both of Rich Fountain; nephews and nieces; and other relatives and a host of friends.

In addition to his parents, Albert and Mary, he was preceded in death by a grandchild.

Visitation will be held from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at Morton Chapel in Linn.

An additional visitation will be held from 9:30 a.m.to 10:30 a.m. on Monday, September 25, 2017, at Morton Chapel in Linn.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, September 25, 2017, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rich Fountain with Fr. William Debo and Fr. I.C. Medina as concelebrants.  Interment will follow in the Sacred Heart Parish Cemetery.

Expressions of sympathy may be made to Sacred Heart Endowment Fund.
