Obituaries » MARILYN P. GREENE

GREENE, MARILYN PAULINE GREAVES, 85, of McMinnville, Ore. and formerly of Montpelier, went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 9. She was born Feb. 26, 1929, in South Peacham, to Ralph and Carrie (Greaves) Lawson. At age 8 when her mother died, she was adopted by her aunt and uncle, Agnes and Adna Greaves, of Montpelier. She was educated in Montpelier schools, graduating from Montpelier High School in 1946. Mari graduated from Westbrook Junior College in 1948. On April 15, 1951, she and Cyril F. Greene Jr. were married in Christ Church (Episcopal) in Montpelier. They had two children. Her daughter, Janet Greene, and husband, Robert Lumbra, live in Middlesex. Her son, Thomas Greene, and wife, Joyce, live in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. She is also survived by a brother, Malcolm Lawson, and wife, Dorothy, of Wolcott, and many nieces and nephews, and “cousins by the dozens.” A niece, Susie Grant, deserves special mention as she has taken care of Marilyn’s needs since she moved to McMinnville. Marilyn was predeceased by her parents; her husband; two babies, James Martin and Richard Frank; her sister, Myrna; and her brother Marvin. She moved to Seattle in 1979. In Seattle, Kennebunk, Maine, and all the other places she lived, she found a volunteer job where she was needed. Always it was for her church, but for several years she was also a foster mother to newborn babies. She was as generous with her time as she was with her assets.
