Obituary for Virginia Juanita Green

Virginia “Juanita” Green age 93, passed away at the Lynden Christian Health Care on Friday, January 11, 2019 from Alzheimer's disease. She was always a joy to be around and had a mischievous sense of humor.

Juanita was born February 1, 1925 in Van Buren, Missouri to Henry A. and Bessie (Neer) Buchanan. Juanita had one brother Whilburn and two sisters Magdalene and Georgia.

Juanita married Ellis C. Green on December 21 and together they had two sons Larry and Duane. The family lived in the Lynden area owning and working fields of raspberries, strawberries, beans and cucumbers for many years. For a time they owned the Dutch Treat restaurant and enjoyed living across from the NWW fair.

Ellis and Juanita treasured going fishing at Lake Sharidan and hunting around the Conconully area with family and friends. The ladies would find themselves crocheting and visiting as the guys were hunting. Juanita was known to do a good bit of hunting and fishing herself. She loved the Lord and faithfully attended the Assembly of God Church and Word of Life.

Juanita is preceded in death by her husband Ellis and her parents. She is survived by sons Larry E. Green of Everson and Douglas Duane Green of Ferndale; 8 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren among many other relatives.

A memorial service will start at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 26 at Gillies Funeral Home. Burial will follow the following week at Tahoma National Cemetery next to her husband Ellis.
