Dorothy Elaine Greenwood

A graveside funeral service for Dorothy Elaine Greenwood, age 89, of Carriere, Mississippi, who passed away Thursday, October 26, 2023, will be held Monday, October 30, 2023, at 2 pm at Gulf Pines Memorial Gardens, Long Beach, Mississippi.  There will be no visitation.  Riemann Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.


Bro. Cedric Lumpkin will officiate at the service.  


A native of Long Beach, Mississippi, Elaine was a retired federal employee. She worked at several locations and agencies during her federal career, with the last being with the US Geological Survey at Stennis Space Center, Mississippi, as a secretary.


She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Bro. W. E. "Will" Greenwood and her son, William David Greenwood. Also preceding her in death were her sisters Chloe Holcomb and Margaret Owen, and brothers John New and Bill New.


She is survived by one sister, Fay (Dennis) Maxwell of Long Beach and her "adopted" son/nephew Robert (Carol) Holcomb of Florida.


All throughout her younger years, and later, when her health allowed her, she was very active in all of her church activities. She and her husband began several churches including Grace Baptist Church, Saucier, Mississippi, where she was a member.  If you had the good fortune to meet her and talk to her, she was going to tell you about the Lord. That was how she lived her life every day.


She will be missed greatly by all who knew her, and especially her "Minnie cat" and her friend Barbara.
