September 30, 1934 - July 23, 2021
Jean L. Greene, age 86, of Newark, DE, lived a long and full life before passing peacefully on July 23, 2021. While discussing her obituary she stated that she wanted it to be very short. This will be our last chance to disobey her. Jean was a wonderful mother, grandmother, wife and friend. Everyone enjoyed her cooking. Christmas ham and fruit salad were family favorites. She also baked many varieties of cookies every Christmas. She would distribute these cookies to the entire family, as well as friends and students on her bus. Other favorites included her carrot cake, applesauce cake, pound cakes, and peanut butter balls. Jean enjoyed family gatherings, gardening, shopping trips to Quarryville and dining out with friends. Jean was born on September 30, 1934 to Harold and Mabel Cramer in Little Britain, PA. After graduating high school Jean moved to Aberdeen, MD. There she would meet her husband to be, Charles Robert Greene of Huntington, West Virginia. They married on July 3, 1954. They eventually made their home in Harmony Hills where they would raise their family. Jean began married life as a homemaker. She excelled at all the things that make a house a home. We did not dare miss a meal and our sports uniforms were always the brightest on the fields at the start of each game. In 1979 she would take a job as a school bus driver. After 35 years of driving she retired in 2013. Jean is survived by her children: Douglas (Linda), Robert (Debi) and Suzanne Godwin (Tim); grandchildren: Sean, Dylan, Lauren, Dan, Shelly Patchell (Taylor), and Joel; great-grandchildren: Domanique, Serena, Kayden, and Mason; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 35 years, Charles; her parents, Harold and Mabel Cramer; and her brother Bill Cramer.
