Reva Christine Greer was born May 2, 1931, in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, to Harold and Margaret (Cronin) Greer. She married Wayne Kinney in 1949. They later divorced. Reva was a homemaker, spending her time raising her children. She enjoyed playing all board games and card games, especially rummy. She loved reading, completing crossword puzzles and baking for her children and their friends, and was an avid Hawkeye sports fan, particularly football.
