Janet Green Obituary
March 28, 1922 - December 13, 2015 Janet Green, age 93, died peacefully in her sleep early in the morning of December 13, 2015 surrounded by family. Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, her family moved to Los Angeles when Jan was 7 years old. She came of age during the Great Depression and graduated from Los Angeles High School. Shortly afterward she met the dashing boy next door, Army Air Force cadet pilot, Irving Green(berg) whom she married in 1942. After the war, Jan and Irv started their own family. Jan is predeceased by her son Gary, who died in infancy, a daughter Jill, who died of leukemia at age 11, and her loving husband Irv who died in 2007 after 65 years of a joyful marriage. She is survived by her son Mark, daughter-in-law, Debra, and grandson Sam. Despite having only a high school education, Jan was known for her openness to life, science and art. Her wisdom drew many to her seeking advice and counsel on all subjects, from serious issues to light banter. She was a grand master in bridge and renowned for solving Saturday crossword puzzles. She also served as statistician at the Los Angeles Suicide Prevention Center. But most of all Jan was a prolific artist. She loved dogs and had a sharp sense of humor. She will be intensely missed. Services will be held at Hollywood Forever Funeral Home, Beth Olam Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, CA 90038 at 11 AM, Wednesday December 16, 2015. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Surgical Oncology Education and Research Fund, c/o Allan W. Silberman, M.D., Cedars-Sinai Cancer Institute, 8700 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90048
