In Lieu of Flowers, memorials can be directed to the Greenville Congregational Church or the Clay County Fair.

      Verlie Amis, daughter of Marvin and Orvilla (Prather) Schenatzki was born December 8, 1937 in Truesdale, IA.  Following her graduation, she attended Buena Vista College, receiving a two-year teaching certificate.  Later in 1983, she graduated with a B.S. Degree in elementary education from Buena Vista College.  She taught in Aurelia 3 years, Spencer 1 year and Clay Central for 28 years retiring in 1999.

     She married Everett Amis, of Greenville in August of 1960.  A son, Jeff was welcomed to the family in 1961.

     Verlie shared her husband’s enthusiasm for antique cars and tractors and together they participated in many parades. She served as President of the Iowa Great Lakes Antique Car Club.  She loved her church in Greenville, serving as organist, pianist, Sunday school teacher, Ladies’ Aid President, Church Board secretary/clerk, and Trustee.  Verlie loved to garden and in her spare time, she participated in other social activities: President of Lincoln Willing Worker’s Club, secretary of Royal Federated Women’s Club, member of the Parker Museum Board, serving on the Educational Committee who traveled to all 4th grade classes in Clay County and then serving as a docent to guide the children through the Museum.  She served as a volunteer at the Red Cross Blood Mobile for many years.  The Clay County Fair was very special to Verlie; she helped her husband with the Cattle Department, volunteered in the Art & Crafts Dept., the Baked Goods Dept. and 4-H.  She made it her goal to attend the Fair, everyday-all day!

     Verlie passed away at her home in Greenville on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at the age of 82.  She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Everett in 2018; two sisters in their childhood, Cleota & Illa Mae; another sister, Irene Mallett; two brothers and their wives: Rodney and Iris Schenatzki and Edward and Marge Schenatzki

     Left to cherish her memory is a son, Jeff & his wife, Teresa of Kansas City, MO; two grandchildren, Mallory and Andrew in addition to several nieces and nephews and other relatives and many friends.
