May 17, 1945-March 7, 2019
Lynn Green, 73, passed away March 7, 2019 peacefully at home with family after a courageous 3-year battle with Ovarian Cancer. She was born in Wallingford, England in 1945 to Clara and Wilf Thomas. In 1962 she married Charlie Green, her beloved husband of 57 years. They had two children while living in England. They chose to leave England to pursue a career path in Canada. While living in Canada they had 3 more children. This path took them from Canada to Wisconsin, then on to Mississippi and they finally settled in San Ramon, CA in 1981. Lynn and Charles lived in San Ramon, Pleasanton, and El Dorado Hills before retiring to the peaceful mountain area of Copperopolis, CA. Lynn loved being a homemaker and was closely involved in the lives of her kids and grandkids- joyfully celebrating each milestone with many gatherings and group photos. She had an incredible talent for decorating and she also loved gardening, shopping, taking care of her little dog Sandy, and having a cup of coffee at Starbucks with her long-time best friend, Montez Thalman. Lynn is survived by her loving husband, Charles Green, their five children, Kevin Green (Gretchen), Teresa Vickers (Kevin), Jacqueline Green (Ed), Carol Strom (Casey), Rob Green (Paula) along with her seven grandchildren who were the joy of her life-Ashley, Kody, Nick, Matt, Carson, Gavin, and Anthony. Lynn was the “glue” of our family till the end, never complaining during her hard-fought battle, an absolute pillar of strength and bravery. Lynn will be forever loved and deeply missed by all who knew her. A private celebration of her life will be held on May 18th, 2019.
