On June 23, 2022, Betty Ellen Green, loving mother and grandmother, passed away in her home at the age of 96.
Betty was born June 29. 1925 in Edwardsport, IN to George and Pauline (Morris) Jones. On November 8, 1942, Betty married Laddie Green, and they had six children. Betty was a homemaker, dedicated mother, and the coolest grandma ever. She was a voracious reader, prolific crossword puzzle enthusiast, and an amazing cook, however what she most enjoyed was her family, and to her everyone was family. Sunday dinners were a must, and when she was no longer able to cook, she would spend Sundays supervising her daughter and granddaughter while they cooked her recipes. Betty was known far and wide for her compassion, grace, quick wit, incredible sense of humor, and homemade noodles.
Betty was proceeded in death by her husband Laddie, daughter Sandy McElvain, son Patrick Green, brothers Bob Jones and Gary Jones, and sister Carolyn Jones.
Betty will be greatly missed by her surviving family: children Sally Pratt, Mike Green, Mark (Rhonda) Green, Julie Green, and son-in-law Benny McElvain; her grandchildren Dan (Selena) McElvain, Doug (Sarah) Pratt, Mendy McElvain Mason, Charles (Molly) McElvain, Erin Ellen Pratt (Tom Mulcahy), Zachary Green, Cassie Green, Marissa Ashby (Maciej Katafiez), and Christopher Ashby; eight great-grandchildren, and several great-great grandchildren.
