She graduated from Four Oaks High School and attended the Rex Hospital School of Nursing. She was a full time Mom until her daughter Lisa started school and then worked at Dorothea Dix Hospital until illness forced her to retire.

She is survived by her husband, Robert “Bobby” Green; daughter, Lisa Feller and husband, Keith; stepson, Robert Green, all of Raleigh; and a brother, Wayne Massengill of Smithfield.
