Greshner, Joseph ‘Stan’ (? - 20 November 1972)

Joseph ‘Stan’ Greshner, 45, was pronounced dead-on-arrival at a Marshfield Hospital Monday evening, after becoming entangled with an elevator power take-off on his farm on Rt. 1 Withee.

Greshner, who operated the farm just north of Longwood, was unloading cob corn into an elevator about 7:30 p.m. when his clothes were caught in the drive shaft, according to Clark County Coroner Robert Lulloff. The coroner said that Greshner’s wife went to the barn to check on her sons’ milking and found her husband entangled in the machine.

The coroner stated that he did not know how long Greshner had been unloading the corn. “The load was almost off the wagon, but we don’t know if it was a full load due to the late evening time of the accident; he could have been finishing for the night,” Lulloff said.

The coroner also reported that the elevator was ‘partially visible’ from the house.

Resuscitation efforts at the farm failed.

“A cause of death has not been determined as of yet; there were no external injuries,” the coroner said.

Greshner is survived by his wife Lois, and family.

Arrangements will be be made by the Hoeper and Kraut Funeral Home, Owen.
