HYDE PARK - E. Audell "Dell" Greiner, one of the city's first female pharmacists, died Aug. 23 at VISTAS Hospice in Anderson Township of pancreatic cancer. The Hyde Park resident was 94.

She was a mother of two and newly widowed when she decided to go back to school in 1934. She enrolled at the College of Pharmacy, then located downtown, before it was associated with the University of Cincinnati. She graduated four years later and was the only female graduate in her class.

"She was so friendly and caring and always willing to help. She always had a smile on her face," said her daughter, Doris Hubble of Pierce Township.

Ms. Greiner spent a few years working at a pharmacy in Corryville before accepting a position with Tischbein's Pharmacy in Carew Tower in 1940, where she worked until 1987.

Born and raised in Oneida, Tenn., Ms. Greiner moved to Cincinnati around the age of 19.

She married Harry Goodfriend in 1929. He died in an automobile accident in 1934.

A second husband, George Greiner, died in 1960.

Besides her daughter, other survivors include a son, Jack Goodfriend, of Freemont, Calif.; six grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Services have been held.

Burial was in Arlington Cemetery, Mount Healthy.

Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society, 2808 Reading Road, Cincinnati, 45206.
