Dr. Judy Green Remembered

My beautiful and accomplished sister-in-law, Judy Green, died suddenly this week of a heart attack. Judy left her mark on Louisville. She and her husband Jimmy were dedicated parents of all their children, by birth, adoption and fostering. We enjoyed their hospitality on yearly visits to see the Green family.

I don’t know how Judy found 25 hours in every day year after year. She worked as a dental hygienist, got her DMD and as Dr.Green delivered life-saving care to the people most in need. She served in her City Council, and endured a tough political setback. When I saw her last summer she was managing a day care.

Did she take on too much? I’ll always wonder.

We were the same age, 57. She will be missed by many in her family and her community.

    September 23, 2013 will mark 20 glorious years of military service that I have benefitted from. This is due in part to the encouragement of my sister, Judy Green. How fitting would it have been to have closed my career celebrating with the woman who set me on that path. Judy had a vision of success for other people and even when we could not and sometimes would not see that vision, she was right there continually supporting that vision. A wise man once said that in every seed, there is the hope and promise of a flower. If you look at not only her family and friends, but the community as well, you can see the many seeds that Judy Green has planted and marvel at all of the flowers that have bloomed.

      Thank you so much for sending these words. The Rhode Island Green family sends the profoundest sympathy to the Greenwell family. I am missing Judy and thinking of all the people who loved her.
