Obituary Condolences

Mark Hindley Greene 1921 ~ 2005 Mark Hindley Greene died peacefully at home December 26, 2005. He was born November 2, 1921 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Mark Hindley and Alice Dunford Greene. He served in the Navy during World War II and graduated from the University of Utah Medical School. He later served during the Korean War at Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. After completing an orthopedic residency in Los Angeles, California he spent two more years there specializing in hand surgery. When he returned to Salt Lake to begin his medical profession, he became the first hand surgeon in the state of Utah. He practiced at St. Mark's Hospital and Shriners Children's Hospital performing many hand reconstruction miracles. He built the office called Medical Manor on 7th East and South Temple. After 40 years of practice, he and his wife, Barbara moved to St. George, Utah where he continued his work in hand surgery. They both became very active in restoring pioneer homes. They lovingly reconstructed 12 pioneer homes that would have been lost to history and to memory. Most of them were located in Greene Gate Village just north of the Tabernacle and several of them were moved in from other locations. He was the President of the Utah State Medical Society, and the President of the Historical Society, in St. George. Mark loved to paint and has made many beautiful paintings for friends and family. Whenever he took trips, he always had a sketch book with him which resulted in a large collection of drawings that depict his travels and feelings. He has been very active in the LDS Church and has served in many capacities. With his wife, he served for 18 months in the Eugene Oregon Mission in Bandon, Oregon. He is survived by his wife, Barbara; three sons, Mark H. Greene III (Jill), Richard N. Greene (Claudia), John D. Greene (Sherrie); and two daughters, Karen Romney (Melbourne) and Anne Greene. He has 18 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, Alva Greene; and two sisters, Lovinia Harmsen and Gloria Kimball.

Yale Avenue (1080 So.), on Friday, December 30 at 1:00 p.m. A viewing will be held Thursday, December 29, from 6-8 pm at Larkin Mortuary, 260 E. South Temple.
