Obituary

Mary Agnes Green, born in Graysville, IN, July 1, 1915, passed away peacefully in her sleep February 15, 2020 while under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky.

Mary Agnes had a long, full life and adapted easily to changing times. In her 104 years she went from riding in a horse drawn carriage with her grandfather Durham, a country doctor making house calls, to surfing the internet!

As a former co-owner of the Executive Inns in Owensboro, Evansville, Paducah, and Vincennes, she managed the Inn in Vincennes for 23 years. She also worked many years in Green Coal and Green Construction. Mrs. Green and her husband Robert Green started WRTB radio station in Vincennes, IN. She was a graduate of Indiana State University and taught school briefly in her early years of marriage at Graysville, IN.

Honors Mrs. Green received include: The University of Evansville Medal of Honor (Model for contemporary business women), Matron of Honor at Fortnightly, Kentucky Colonel, Eastern Star, and Daughters of the Nile. She was a member of Owensboro Christian Church.

Mrs. Green (affectionately known as Mimi by family and close friends) was an avid sports fan who enjoyed watching golf, football, and basketball on T.V. For the past several years, family and friends have celebrated her birthday at "Mimifest" in Owensboro. Until her final days, Mimi enjoyed keeping up with loved ones through Facebook and e-mails.

Mrs. Green was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Lora Ridgeway Durham; husband, Robert E. Green; grandson, Robert D. Green Jr.; sisters, Marjorie Lowdermilk and Maurine Medsker; and infant brother, John Durham.

Survivors include her sons, Robert D. Green (Reni) of Hernando, FL. and Thomas E. Green (Jennifer) of Owensboro; grandchildren, Marci Hutchinson of Vincennes, IN, Jason Green (Summer) of Destin, FL, Ben Green (Amanda) of Marietta, GA and Beau (Rachel) Green of Birmingham, AL; 9 great-grandchildren; cousin, Lida Kerlin and niece, Susie Milligan of Vincennes; 3 nephews from Naples, FL, Jim (Jan) Lowdermilk, Jon (Sally) Lowdermilk, and Joe (Diane) Lowdermilk.

The family appreciates the many kindnesses shown to Mimi at One Park Place where she resided the past several years.
