Jim Lee Green, 82, passed away at his home January 30, 2021.
Born March 26, 1938 in Bengal, Oklahoma to Myrl (Mize) and Lewis Green, Jr., Jim graduated from Panola High School and eventually settled in Lincoln, Nebraska. There he met and married Eunice Buck in 1960 and graduated from Union College in 1965 with a degree in Business Administration. Eunice and Jim had 3 children, Stephen, David and Daina. After retiring from Union Drywall, where Jim worked for many years, he did maintenance work at his church, College View SDA Church, until his 2nd retirement. Although Jim lived in the city, he remained an Oklahoma country boy at heart. His hobbies included playing his guitar, singing with friends, tending to and riding his horses, and visiting with everyone. He dearly loved his family and especially enjoyed his granddaughter Meghan and great-granddaughter Signe. In the last year he found comfort in the kindness of his caregivers, especially “Dr.” Crystal Andersen.
Jim was preceded in death by his sister Donna Dodd and his son David. Jim is survived by his wife of 60 years, Eunice and children Stephen and Daina, son-in-law Shawn, granddaughters Meghan and Signe as well as siblings Bill Green, Pat Foster, Betty Robinson and their families.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
I Thessalonians 4:16,17 and Revelation 21:4.
