On Friday, December 4th, 2020, Nancy Ann Green, 81, passed away peacefully with her family at her side, her struggle with Alzheimer’s now over.
Her parents, Clarence and Hester Lamme, celebrated the birth of Nancy on May 29th, 1939. She was the youngest of four children and raised on a family farm in Bellbrook, Ohio, that had deep family roots. Nancy graduated from Bellbrook High School in 1957. She married her classmate, Charles Kelly and they raised three boys. After they divorced, Nancy worked at the Ohio Bureau of Worker’s Compensation. Ever one for self-improvement, Nancy took classes from Sinclair Community College in various subjects. One class was in auto repair which was unusual for a woman at the time.
In 1978 Nancy married her lifelong love, Bill Green of Wilmington Ohio. She helped raise Bill’s two children. Nancy worked along-side of Bill on his farm where he describes her as the “Ideal Partner “. She enjoyed farm work. However, there were some jobs that in her mind could have been better described. When she asked too many questions about a job, Bill would sometimes reply that “any damn fool could do that job”. At which time Nancy went away and did her best. Later on, when perhaps things didn’t go as well as they could have, she would grin and say, yes, she was, “any damn fool” at times.
Nancy was elected as Union Township’s Fiscal Officer where she served for 21 years and was highly regarded. She was a fantastic cook, avid gardener and loved flowers. She enjoyed Cowan Lake and would take long walks there. As Bill says, Nancy would do anything for anybody. That was just who she was.
Nancy is survived by her husband Bill Green; her sons Kevin (Melinda) Kelly, Kenny (Lori) Kelly, Shawn Kelly; her stepson Steve (Mary) Green, and stepdaughter Katherine (Grant) Richardson; 11 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be held after Covid is Conquered.
