This Amendment No. 1 amends and supplements the statement on Schedule 13D (the “Statement”) originally filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 6, 2010 by Patricia M. Dempsey with respect to the shares of Class B Common Stock, without par value (the “Class B Common Stock”) of Greif, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”). Unless otherwise indicated, each capitalized term used but not defined herein shall have the meaning assigned to such term in the Statement. From and after the date hereof, all references in the Statement to the Statement or terms of similar import shall be deemed to refer to the Statement as amended and supplemented hereby.
 
The Reporting Persons (as defined below) have entered into a Joint Filing Agreement, dated as of June 5, 2010 (the “Joint Filing Agreement”), a copy of which is filed herewith as Exhibit A and which is incorporated herein by reference.  Neither the fact of this filing nor anything contained herein shall be deemed an admission by the Reporting Persons that they constitute a "group" as such term is used in Section 13(d)(1)(k) of the rules and regulations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
 
Items 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 are hereby amended and supplemented as follows:

Item 2.  Identity and Background.
 
This Statement is being filed by Patricia M. Dempsey, the Patricia M. Dempsey Trust (the “PMD Trust”), the Patricia M. Dempsey Generation-Skipping Trust (the “GST Trust”) and the Revocable Trust Created By Patricia M. Dempsey (the “Revocable Trust” and, together with the PMD Trust, the GST Trust and Patricia M. Dempsey, the “Reporting Persons”).
 
The business address of Patricia M. Dempsey is 12781 NE 72nd Boulevard, Lady Lake, FL 32162, and her present principal occupation is management consultant, publisher and horse breeder.  Ms. Dempsey is a citizen of the United States of America.
 
The business address of the PMD Trust is c/o Patricia M. Dempsey, 12781 NE 72nd Boulevard, Lady Lake, FL 32162.  The PMD Trust has no designated place of organization.
 
The business address of the GST Trust is c/o Patricia M. Dempsey, 12781 NE 72nd Boulevard, Lady Lake, FL 32162.  The GST Trust has no designated place of organization.
 
The business address of the Revocable Trust is c/o Patricia M. Dempsey, 12781 NE 72nd Boulevard, Lady Lake, FL 32162.  The Revocable Trust has no designated place of organization.
 
The Reporting Persons have not, during the past five years, (i) been convicted in any criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations or similar misdemeanors) or (ii) been a party to a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body of competent jurisdiction and as a result of such proceeding were or are subject to a judgment, decree or final order enjoining future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation with respect to such laws.

Item 3.  Source and Amount of Funds or Other Consideration.
 
As previously reported in this Statement, Patricia M. Dempsey obtained the right to acquire 2,069,362 shares of Class B Common Stock covered by this Statement and held by the
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
PMD Trust and GST Trust (the “Trust Shares”) pursuant to the terms of an order of the Court of Common Pleas, Delaware County, Ohio Probate Division, dated April 14, 2010 (the “Court Order”) approving a settlement agreement between the Reporting Person and certain other parties, dated January 31, 2010 (the “Settlement Agreement”).  The Settlement Agreement and the Court Order were subject to the expiration of a 30-day appeal period (the “Appeal Period”), which expired on May 15, 2010.
 
As a result of the expiration of the Appeal Period and the effectiveness of the Court Order and the Settlement Agreement, on May 15, 2010:  (1) Ms. Dempsey was appointed trustee of the PMD Trust and the GST Trust and (2) the 2,046,028 shares of Class B Common Stock held by the PMD Trust were distributed directly to Ms. Dempsey (the “Distribution”).  Following the Distribution, Ms. Dempsey transferred the 2,046,028 shares of Class B Common Stock held directly by her and previously held by the PMD Trust to herself as trustee of the Revocable Trust.
 
Accordingly, Ms. Dempsey may be deemed (a) the indirect beneficial owner, as trustee of the Revocable Trust, of the 2,046,028 shares of Class B Common Stock previously held by the PMD Trust and currently held by the Revocable Trust, and (b) the indirect beneficial owner, as trustee of the GST Trust, of the 23,334 shares of Class B Common Stock held by the GST Trust.  The Revocable Trust holds an additional 938,768 shares of Class B Common Stock, which Ms. Dempsey may be deemed to beneficially own indirectly as trustee of the Revocable Trust.  As a result of the Distribution, the PMD Trust may no longer be deemed the beneficial owner of any shares of Class B Common Stock of the Company.
 
The PMD Trust and GST Trust were originally created by the division of the Naomi C. Dempsey Trust on December 5, 2007 and funded with distributions of 2,127,028 and 23,334 shares, respectively, of Class B Common Stock from the Naomi C. Dempsey Trust.  The Naomi C. Dempsey Trust was originally created and funded by Naomi C. Dempsey during her lifetime with a gift of 5,375,904 shares of Class B Common Stock.
 
The 938,768 shares held by the Revocable Trust (in addition to the 2,046,028 shares of Class B Common Stock acquired following the Distribution) were acquired by way of bequest from Ms. Dempsey’s mother and father.

Item 4.  Purpose of Transaction.
 
Except as otherwise described in this Statement, the Reporting Person has no plans or proposals which relate to or would result in: (a) the acquisition or disposition of additional securities of the Company; (b) an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as a merger, reorganization or liquidation, involving the Company or any of its subsidiaries; (c) a sale or transfer of a material amount of assets of the Company or any of its subsidiaries; (d) any change in the present board of directors or management of the Company; (e) any material change in the present capitalization or dividend policy of the Company; (f) any other material change in the Company’s business or corporate structure; (g) changes in the Company’s charter, bylaws or instruments corresponding thereto or other actions which may impede the acquisition of control of the Company by any person; (h) causing a class of securities of the Company to be delisted from the New York Stock Exchange; (i) a class of equity securities of the Company becoming eligible for termination of registration pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Act; or (j) any action similar to any of those enumerated above.
 
 
 
 

 
 
The Reporting Person intends to review her investment in the Company on a continuing basis.  The Reporting Person may in the future take such actions with respect to her investment in the Company as she deems appropriate, including (i) the purchase of additional Shares in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, and (ii) the sale of all or a portion of the Shares now owned or hereafter acquired by the Reporting Person, in the open market, in privately negotiated transactions or otherwise.  The Reporting Person reserves the right, at any time, to change her plans or intentions and to take or refrain from taking any and all of the above actions or any and all actions that she may deem appropriate to maximize the value of her investment in the Company in light of market conditions, subsequent developments affecting the Company and the general business and future prospects of the Company.
 

Item 5.  Interest in Securities of the Issuer.
 
 (a) – (b)
 
 
 
Based upon the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 4, 2010, there were 22,462,266 shares of Class B Common Stock outstanding as of February 24, 2010. 
 
As of the date hereof:

(ii)

(iii)
The Revocable Trust may deemed the direct beneficial owner of 2,984,796 shares of Class B Common Stock, or 13.3% of the Company’s outstanding Class B Common Stock.  The Revocable Trust has the sole power to vote and dispose of such shares.
 
 
(iv)
Patricia M. Dempsey may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of 3,008,130 shares of Class B Common Stock, or 13.4% of the Company’s outstanding Class B Common Stock (2,984,796 of which Ms. Dempsey may be deemed to indirectly beneficially own as trustee of the Revocable Trust, and 23,334 of which Ms. Dempsey may be deemed to indirectly beneficially own as trustee of the GST Trust).  Ms. Dempsey has the sole power to vote and dispose of such shares.

(c)
As described in Item 3 hereof, on May 15, 2010, pursuant to the terms of the Court Order and the Settlement Agreement:  (1) Ms. Dempsey was appointed trustee of the PMD Trust and the GST Trust and (2) the 2,046,028 shares of Class B Common Stock held by the PMD Trust were distributed directly to Ms. Dempsey in the Distribution.  Following the Distribution, Ms. Dempsey transferred the 2,046,028 shares of Class B Common Stock held directly by her and previously held by the PMD Trust to herself as trustee of the Revocable Trust.  Accordingly, Ms. Dempsey may be deemed (a) the indirect beneficial owner, as trustee of the Revocable Trust, of the 2,046,028 shares of Class B
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
Common Stock previously held by the PMD Trust and currently held by the Revocable Trust (in addition to the 938,768 shares of Class B Common Stock held by the Revocable Trust), and (b) the indirect beneficial owner, as trustee of the GST Trust, of the 23,334 shares of Class B Common Stock held by the GST Trust.  As a result of the Distribution, the PMD Trust may no longer be deemed the beneficial owner of any shares of Class B Common Stock of the Company.
 
(d)
Not applicable.

(e)
As a result of the Distribution, the PMD Trust may no longer be deemed the beneficial owner of any shares of Class B Common Stock of the Company.
