Susan M. Green Obituary
Susan M. Green, age 65, of Glendora, California was surrounded by loved ones when she passed away from an acute bacterial infection on Thursday, June 12, 2014 surrounded by loved ones. Susan was born February 21, 1949 in Wakefield, Michigan, the daughter of Edwin and Elspeth Mettala, both of whom preceded her in death. She moved with her family to Altadena, California at the age of 4 and remained a lifelong Los Angeles County resident. Susan was a graduate of John Muir High School in Pasadena, attended Pasadena City College and received her Bachelor's degree in Urban Studies from California State Los Angeles. Her professional work included civil service as a City Planner for the City of Duarte. Her true passion was manifested in her dedication to her immediate and extended family. She took incredible pride in her daughters and granddaughter and was known as a great listener and advice-giver. She loved to be near the ocean and had a passion for travel. Her wry sense of humor was contagious. Susan is survived by her devoted husband of 32 years, James T. Green of Glendora, loving daughters Lara Hilton of Eagle Rock and Amy Green of Monrovia, son-in-law, Ian Hilton, granddaughter, Claire Hilton, and two brothers, Eric Mettala of Ojai and Kris Mettala of Altadena. She will always be remembered and celebrated. A memorial service will be conducted on Saturday, June 28 at 11:00 a.m. at Mountain View Cemetery at 2400 N. Fair Oaks Avenue, Altadena 91001. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to The National Partnership for Women & Families (nationalpartnership.org) in Susan's name.
