Jeanette Green, of Waldorf, Maryland died peacefully at the Charles County Hospice House in Waldorf on Thursday, January 30, at the age of 92. Jeanette and her late husband Raymond Green were among the first to take up residence in the new community of St. Charles in Waldorf, MD in the 1960s, moving to Southern MD from Philadelphia, PA and she lived in her home on Sloan Avenue until two months before her death.
Jeanette lived a rich life of service and was the epitome of the volunteer, belonging to such organizations as National Active and Retired Federal Employees (NARFE), National Extension Homemakers Council (NEHC), Friends of the Charles County Public Library, Citizens for the Charles County Public Library, Charles County Literacy Council, Lung Association of Southern Maryland, 4-H Clubs of Charles County, Port Tobacco Players, Christmas in April, and at the Hospital and Commissary at the Andrews Air Force Base.
Jeanette was passionate about issues such as literacy, children, education, the arts and health, and also worked the polls for decades on election days in Philadelphia and as a Chief Judge of Elections for the Charles County Board of Elections.
Born on October 6, 1927 in New York, New York, she was the daughter of Sylvan and Florence Katz. At 18, she married the love of her life Raymond R. Green (husband and wife 55 years), and together they had three sons Steven, Jerry, and Terry. The family traveled the country extensively in their travel trailer visiting and exploring 49 states. Jeanette had recently completed her memoir about her family's adventures. She was a friend to all with an infectious, sunny disposition and spent the final weeks of her life reading extensively (over 50 non-fiction books) and connecting with her many friends and relatives thru visitation, via phone and email.
