Mary Green (Leyden) died unexpectedly on Monday, April 8 at her home in Fairlawn. She will be deeply missed by her husband of 59 years, Norm Green; the families of their six children: Kevin, MaryBeth (Maxwell), Tricia (Dexter), Thom, Brian and Colin; siblings and their families, Joe, Paul, Martha, and Dorothy. Mary lived her 84 years to the fullest, passing on her generosity, wisdom and creativity to her children, along with her 11 grandchildren and great-grandchild who affectionately called her "Grandmary".

A graduate of The University of Akron, Mary cherished her time as president and beloved sister of the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority. She received UA's prestigious A Key award for her academic and leadership achievements and was selected into Who's Who Among American Colleges & Universities, one of the most highly regarded and long-standing honors programs in the nation. Mary donated her candid spirit and admired talent to The Christ Child Society as a lifetime member, and also enjoyed working with children in special education programs at Our Lady of the Elms School. An accomplished artisan, her beautiful handcrafted pottery, fashion designs and floral arrangements serve as outstanding examples of the grace she naturally exuded. Mary appreciated the beauty of Mother Nature, actively skiing, biking, hiking, golfing and playing tennis with friends and the love of her life, Norm, until her last days. Mary also treasured extensive travel with her family. Her memory is and always will be a constant reminder to celebrate each day of our lives to the fullest, as Mary believed, "To live in the hearts of those we leave behind, is not to die"

At her request a private inurnment will be held, and in lieu of flowers please consider The Christ Child Society of Akron, Postal Box 13411. Mary's family would be honored to have you join in the celebration of her life at a memorial mass on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at 11 a.m. in the chapel of Walsh Jesuit High School, 4550 Wyoga Lake Road, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio 44225. A gathering hosted by the Green family will follow.
