Birth: Aug. 2, 1906
Death: Mar. 4, 1980
Saline County
Illinois, USA

Greek, named for a family friend, was the third of four children and the only daughter of Telia and Claude Lynn. She was born in Dixon, Ky and attended elementary school there. She attended high school in Oakland City, Indiana, completing her senior year in Evansville, Indiana and became chosen as the first student to receive a diploma from the new Bosse High School. Greek attended the University of Alabama where she trained as a high school history teacher. Her first teaching position led her to Eldorado, Illinois where she met her future husband, Gene Choisser, Sheriff of Saline County at a time of Prohibition and Chicago crime syndicates. Her husband, Gene, and his law enforcement related incidents were often the subject of articles written in popular detective magazines during those years. Later, Gene bought a local business and the couple lived quietly in Eldorado for many years. Greek and Gene enjoyed wintering in Florida and were involved in their community. The couple had no children.
