Mary Ellen Greene

York Township - Mary Ellen Greene, 73, passed away peacefully surrounded by her children at 10:41 p.m. Saturday, August 4, 2018, at her home. She is reunited in spirit with her late husband of 46 years, James (Jim) Robert Greene.

Raised in Endicott, NY, Mary Ellen had a lifelong love of home and would fondly reminisce on her childhood adventures with friends, listening to her father's band, and her first dog named Inky - a "Heinz 57" mixed-breed she insisted made the best dogs. She met Jim while working at Endicott Johnson as an office assistant, a story she told with a sparkle in her eye about the handsome man who would become her husband. Together they built a family, enjoying a simple and rewarding life of supporting their children and friends through life's many trials and triumphs.

Innately curious and social, Mary Ellen never met a stranger and made friends with people wherever she went. She enjoyed traveling to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Cape Hatteras, NC and Key West, FL. When she wasn't at home with a full house of loud family, she was happiest watching the sunset, listening to a good acoustic set with a pink cosmopolitan in hand. Come fall, if her Baltimore Ravens were playing, she was watching. Mary Ellen truly enjoyed the simple pleasures of life and her most treasured possessions weren't things but relationships with people she loved. She is remembered for her generosity to friends and strangers alike, her love of family and animals of all kinds, and her soft spot for Siamese cats and hummingbirds.

Mary Ellen was born June 27, 1945, in Johnson City, New York, the youngest daughter of John Martin Murray and Catherine (Therese) Wenzell. She was a graduate of Union Endicott High School with the class of 1964. She is survived by a sister, Julia (Murray) Abraham of Syracuse, NY; a daughter, Catherine Greene Hendricks and her husband Mark, of Richmond, VA, and her three sons; Patrick Robert Greene, and his wife Jennifer, of Stevensville, MD., Brian John Greene of PA., and Sean James Greene, and his wife Emily of Baltimore, MD; and five grandchildren, Rebecca Elizabeth Hendricks, Eden Presley Greene, Isla Marley Greene, Jack James Greene and William Rider Greene.

A celebration of life is scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, August 18, 2018, at Kuhner Associates Funeral Directors, Inc., 863 South George Street, York. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a favorite local organization Mary Ellen supported: Animal Rescue, Inc., 2 Heritage Farm Drive, New Freedom, PA 17349 or
