Sue M. Green, 85, of Spanish Fort, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 27, 2019. Sue was born in Montgomery on March 15, 1933, and graduated from Lanier High School. She met and married Howard Green at the age of 18. They were married for 64 years, until Howard’s death in 2015. The Greens were longtime residents of Dothan, Alabama, where they raised their two children. Sue worked for many years as the Children’s Librarian of the Houston County Library, instilling the love for books in many children but especially her grandchildren. She was an active member of the community, but most notably as a member of First Baptist Church in Dothan. Sue served in the nursery, taught Sunday School, and helped in the church library. A devoted matriarch, she loved spending time with her children and later being “Berber” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed sewing, was an avid reader, loved to square dance, and enjoyed traveling with Howard.
Sue is preceded in death by her parents, William and Bessie Mallory; her sister Sandra Booher; her loving husband, Howard; and her devoted son, Blake. She is survived by her sister Rebecca Searcy of Dothan, Alabama; her daughter Lisa (Earl) Blackmon of Spanish Fort, Alabama; grandchildren Blake (Megan) Green, Brent Green, Mallory (David) Breed, Nathan (Ashley) Blackmon, Nicole and Claire Blackmon; great-grandchildren, Rhea and Tripp Green, Adallyn and John Mark Breed, and Nathaniel Blackmon.
