Patricia Edna Green, 86 of Dallas, Georgia went home to be with the Lord on July 31, 2016. Affectionately known as "Mama Pat", she was born in Roseville, Ohio on October 25, 1929 to Thearle William Morris and Edna Fern Foregrave of Zanesville, Ohio.
On August 2, 1968, in Wheatridge, Colorado, Pat married Leonard Ray Green of Rome, Georgia. Soon thereafter, they had a baby girl, Jeanell, and moved to Marietta, Georgia.
Although her loving husband Leonard died in 1971, she and Jeanell remained in Georgia and resided in Marietta.
Former member of Olive Springs Baptist Church in Marietta, and current member of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Hiram, she loved her Sunday School class and sharing the Lord with others. She was a very strong Christian woman.
During her years of employment, Pat served as the secretary to the Chief of Police of Zanesville, Ohio for 10 years and as a program coordinator for many years for the March of Dymes. She loved making a difference in the lives of others.
