Phyllis Ann Green, age 77, passed away peacefully on August 26th, at home with her family at her side. She was born on April 26, 1945 in Whitesboro, Texas to parents J.B. And Claire Marlin. She married Daniel Green on December 5th, 1964. She met Dan in San Francisco, California where she was living and Dan was in the navy. After a short courtship, they drove to Reno, Nevada and were married by a Justice of the Peace.
There was nothing she loved more than her children, daughter Julie, sons Daniel Jr and James, and her grandchildren DJ, Ryan, Morgan, Emily, Melanie, and Doug. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren watching their activities and seeing them grow up.
Phyllis worked for several years as a Human Resources assistant. In her free time, she enjoyed being in the mountains and could be found there every weekend with Dan. They built 3 cabins in South Park, Colorado and she loved every minute of it. She was not one to ever shy away from hard work.
Phyllis loved to feed the birds in her backyard and spend time sitting on the deck with her faithful cat Boots.
Phyllis was preceded in death by her parents J.B. and Claire, her brother Jack and her sister Laura. She is survived by her husband Danny, her brother Eddie, sister Jenene and her children Julie Arthur (Andrew), Daniel Green Jr (Molly), and James Green and her grandchildren DJ, Ryan, Morgan, Emily, Melanie and Doug.
