Lyndal C. Grieb

June 12, 1940 — November 2, 2023

Lyndal C. Grieb, 83, of Keller, Texas, passed away Thursday, November 2, 2023, after living a full and happy life. He went to sleep after watching the Texas Rangers win the World Series and woke up in heaven. Lyndal loved watching professional MLB baseball. He was a fan of the Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, and since moving to Texas he started following the Rangers.

He was born June 12, 1940, in Doniphan, Missouri to parents Claude and Hazel Grieb. After Lyndal graduated from Doniphan High School in 1958, he received his bachelor’s degree in library science from the University of Missouri and a master’s degree from Southwest Missouri State University.

After college graduation, he began his career working in Kansas City, Missouri in the local library and then moved to Memphis, Tennessee to work in the Memphis Shelby County Public Library as a Reference Librarian from September 1972 until his retirement in December 2001. Lyndal was honored as Library Volunteer of the Year in 2019.

Lyndal was an avid reader who loved books, publications, newspapers, and magazines. In 1974, he authored a book which was published, “The Opera of Gian Carlo Menotti, 1937-1972: A Selective Bibliography” and later wrote several publications for the Memphis Shelby County Library.
Lyndal loved the arts – listening to operas, collecting paintings, and playing the piano. He enjoyed participating in book clubs, recommending books for the groups to read and later discuss. He was known to encourage members in his Memphis, TN club to draft book reports.

Lyndal placed significant importance on volunteering in his community in Memphis. He read the newspaper for the Lighthouse for the Blind radio station, taught literary classes for the elementary and adult students. He loved cats and would always try to feed strays who needed a home.

Lyndal was a gentle soul who loved his time volunteering for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis from 2006 to 2018 working in the kitchen area creating snack packs for patients. He was honored as St. Jude’s Volunteer of the Year in 2018.

Lyndal attended St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Memphis, Tennessee and after moving to Texas in 2020 he attended St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church in Keller, Texas.
