Death was attributed to an acute coronary occlusion.
The funeral will be at the family home Wednesday afternoon at 2:30p. The Reverend Graham I Hodges, pastor of Emmanuel Congregational Church, will officiate. Burial will be in the Union Cemetery at Adams Center.
Surviving Mrs. Greene, besides her husband, who is the owner and operator of the Ed Greene Dairy and has been in the milk business for 42 years are nine children; Miss Mildred L.
