Lila Greer was born in Norwood, Ohio in 1929. She married Jack in 1953 and moved to Fort Thomas, Kentucky across the Ohio River. Lila met Jack at the University of Cincinnati and graduated from the same class where she majored in English. The family lived in Ft. Thomas and moved to the farm in 1993.
