In Loving Memory…

Jean Green

Full of joy and just fun to be around.  A lady, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, family member and friend.  Never ceasing to welcome with an embracing smile and sparkling eyes.  A working woman and delightful homemaker. Always an encourager, good listener and wealth of wisdom.  Full of love for the Lord and possessor of a true servant’s heart.  The most organized woman ever.  Jean Minert Green peacefully entered into rest on July 21, 2020 in Sedalia, Missouri.  

Jean was born on December 1, 1927 in Kansas City, Missouri.  She graduated from Paseo High School in 1944 and attended the University of Central Missouri (formerly CMSU) from 1945-1947, where she was a proud and lifelong member of Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority. On November 20, 1948 she married Robert Parke Green and they spent 57 years together in Missouri, Illinois and Texas.  Her professional transcribing skills were valued by a court reporter for over 30 years; 100 words a minute, on an electric typewriter, with no mistakes!  Jean was a member, Elder, Clerk of Session and in the Chancel Choir at Broadway Presbyterian Church, beginning in 1983.  She was a devoted member of Chapter IP, P.E.O. and contributed her time and talents to the American Red Cross, Sorosis and the Bothwell Regional Health Center Auxiliary. In 2000 she was the recipient of the Missouri Cattle Woman of the year, which surprised and delighted her.  She was always “the gift that kept on giving.”  

Jean was predeceased by her husband Bob and is survived by her 3 daughters; Bobbie Cowen (Michael) of Sedalia, Becky Perdue (John) of Topeka, Kansas and Debby Johnson (Robert) of Tucson, Arizona; 6 grandchildren, Schyler Cowen (Heather), John Cowen (Danyelle), Matt Perdue (Anne), Chris Perdue, Amanda Eldridge (Jim), Mallory Swartz (Dale); 3 great grandchildren  She was loved by all those whose lives she so genuinely touched.  Of all the things she cherished, none was greater than her family.  May she live in eternal peace and happiness.  

The family would like to thank the staff at Sylvia G. Thompson Residence Center for providing wonderful and loving care during her last years and they would also like to thank Crossroads Hospice for their attention and support in recent months. 

A celebration of Jean’s life will be held at a later date.  Memorials, in Jean’s name, may be made to Broadway Presbyterian Church, 209 West Broadway Blvd, Sedalia, MO 65301.

  8. Bobbie and I grew up together. “Mrs. Green” tucked me in during sleepovers and introduced me to fluffer nutter sandwiches. She was there when we had scrapes, told us not to swear, drove us to school when we missed the bus, comforted me when I fought with my mom, let us make mud pies, and typed out deposition transcripts like lightning. Her parents (“Nanaw” and “Dadaw”) were the kindest people on the planet. Her wedding-day photograph is so beautiful it takes your breath away. Her love for and pride in her daughters, and then her grandchildren, was at all times quietly present. You always saw the twinkle in her eyes and felt warmed by a happy heart. I’ve been blessed by her presence for most of my life and am grateful for the continuing gift of her marvelous family. Love you all so very much.
