Sarah Temple Green

East coast trip: June 1957

Sarah Temple Green died on April 10, 2008, at her home in Springfield, Missouri. The cause of death was pneumonia. She was born on December 18, 1940. She attended Hay-Edwards Grade School and in the 6th grade moved to Dubois Grade School, where she was "Sadie" to her many friends.

At SHS, Sarah was active in Pep Club and the Junior Capitoline. She studied Physical Education at Eastern Illinois University and later taught PE at Eisenhower High School in Decatur and Lanphier High School in Springfield.

Sarah had a prior marriage that produced a daughter, Stacy. On August 14, 1980, Sarah married Tom Green. For many years she managed the business side of his practice in chiropractic and acupuncture.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Bill and sister Virginia. Her survivors include husband Tom, daughter Stacy (husband Dennis), and granddaughter Samantha.

Sarah's friends remember her as fun-loving, always laughing and upbeat, ever interested in her friends and willing to offer help or advice. She was fond of animals and treasured her dog and cat. Despite serious illness in recent years, she stayed in touch with her school friends, pictured below.

For help with this notice, our thanks to Judy Vicars Van Hagen, Carolyn Baldwin Quinlan, and Janet Gillum Plohr '59.
