Evelyn Jean Green, 80
Evelyn Jean Green, 80, of Allegan, passed away Tuesday, March 3, 2020, at Metro Health University Hospital.
She was born July 28, 1939, the daughter of the late Weldon “Bud” and Marie (Barney) Wuis and was the wife of Albert (Sonny) Green.
Evie loved her Lord and personal savior and found great joy in reading her Bible and sharing Bible stories with her children and grandchildren.
Evie worked for Wayland Union Schools for 18 years before retiring.
Her grandchildren were the light of her life and she always made it a priority to be there to watch all their sporting events and activities over the years. When she was 60 years old, she enrolled at Kalamazoo Valley Community College and earned her degree. She wanted to prove to her grandchildren that if she could do it, they could too! Evelyn was always one to have a smile on her face and was famous for her chocolate cake!
In addition to her husband of 63 years, she is survived by her children, Tom (Dawn) Green, Tim Green (Angie Cameruci), Todd (Nyasha) Green and Sally (Doug) Hoffmaster; grandchildren, Jennifer, Michael, Kyle, Janelle, Mykel, Amelia, Mitch, Ethan, Wes, Alan, Alex and Amanda; 12 great-grandchildren; her five sisters and best friends, Pat (Ray) Warner, Jane (Roger) Simpson, Nan (Harley) Schut, Kate (Milton) Johnson and Cindy (Babe) Sheley; as well as a host of other family members, in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.
Along with her parents, Bud and Marie, she was preceded in death by her brothers, John Wuis and David Wuis.
