MRS. ALLIE GREEN
Allie Relief Newton was born in Hinckley township, July 28, 1860, and died in her home in Medina, April 12, 1936, aged 75 years, eight months and 16 days. She was the third child of Solomon and Sarah Newton. One brother and three sisters survive her, viz., James P. Newton of Medina, Mrs. John T. Miller, Miss Gertrude Newton and Mrs. F. M. Sedgwick of Columbus. One brother, Stephen G., preceded her in death in 1882.
She received her education in the Hinckley schools, and after graduation taught in both Hinckley and Brunswick townships. In 1882 her mother, then a widow, moved with her family to Medina and on June 28 of that year Allie R. was married to Edwin C. Green of Granger. For about seven years Mr. and Mrs. Green resided on his farm where two of their children were born. Afterward, they moved to Columbus where Mr. Green held a position as horticulturist in the experiment station, and later they went to Wooster when the station was moved to that city. In 1897 the family came to Medina. Mr. Green bought the property on Wadsworth road now owned by Grant McNeal, where, until his death in 1913, he carried on the horticultural work for which he became widely known. In 1917 Mrs. Green and her family moved to Akron where they lived for about four years. In 1931 she with her daughter, Sadie, returned to Medina where she lived to the time of her death.
In early life, Mrs. Green united with the Remson Corners Baptist church, transferring her membership in 1886 to the Medina Baptist church where she was a member with the exception of about ten years when she resided elsewhere, until her death, 40 years in all.
Mrs. Green's life centered in her home and her church. Her keen sense of humor, her unselfish kindly disposition, her ever ready hospitality, together with the strong faith in God possessed alike by both Mr. and Mrs. Green, made the Green home a place of delight not only to her own children and the children of others for whom she cared, but to all of her relatives, friends, and acquaintances. Aside from her own, Mrs. Green during her life took into her home and mothered 20 childrern, some of these from childhood to maturity. Her work in the church and Sunday school was characterized by an untiring devotion, loyalty and enthusiasm. Although unable to attend the services for some months before her death, she maintained a keen interest in the work of the church up to her last conscious moment.
Four children survive Mrs. Green: Stephen N. Green, of Chicago, Sadie H. of Medina, Mrs. T. M. Boughton of Mayfield, Ky., and Mrs. W. Standen of Medina. Her children and grandchildren, of whom there are five, her relatives and many friends will ever cherish the memory of her well-spent life.
