Mary Anna Green

05/25/1948 - 03/20/2020

Born on May 25th, 1948 in Chico, California the daughter of two wwII veteran’s. Mary lived most of her life in California, Nevada and Washington State. In the year 2000 Mary moved to Mesa, Arizona to be close to her eldest son. She soon after took a job at the local downtown hardware store. For over twelve years she was always that friendly helpful face at the door to greet customers. She retired in 2012 after a surprise diagnosis of kidney cancer. A true warrior she battled cancer for three years and in 2015 was given a cancer free diagnosis. She and her family celebrated with a trip to Kauai, Hawaii.  Then in early 2019 a pain in Mary’s lower back proved to be the return of the cancer, this time in her spine. Again the warrior was determined to fight. But the cancer spread too quickly and was soon untreatable. Mary died at her home surrounded by her family in Mesa, Arizona on March 20th, 2020 after a yearlong battle.

Mary Anna Green was a brave amazing woman who loved and cherished her family and friends. Holidays were her favorite. Mary’s home was always alive with light, warmth, and love. Strong, diligent, smart, funny, and reliable. Always that caring voice of reason. She will truly be missed by so many. Known as Nana, Grandma, Great Grammie, Mom, Best Friend, and Mary.  Her bright light will continue to shine in her loved ones : Ron Mallonee of Scottsdale, AZ , David Gibson of Mesa, AZ ,  David & Mary Green of Harmony, PA ,  Alissa Lauria of Seattle, WA , Lexi Mallonee of Scottsdale, AZ , Cameron & Abigail Green of Harmony, PA. Vincent Gibson of Seattle, WA, Trey and Cora Lauria of Seattle, WA, Jule Green “her puppy” of Mesa, AZ
