Judith Anne Greene “Judy” 81, passed away peacefully on September 2, 2021. She lived in Plum Creek in Kyle, Texas with her husband, George Greene.
Judy was born in Linton, Indiana on March 19, 1940 to Kermit and Frieda Corbin. She had one brother, Kermit Lee Corbin.
At a young age she met the love of her life, George Greene. They were married in Indianapolis, Indiana on June 10, 1956 and have been devoted to each other for 65 years. They began their married life in Indianapolis and Plainfield, Indiana. In 1963, after eight years of marriage, their first and only child William “Billy” was born. The family moved to the Houston area in 1964 and then in 1972, moved to Alice, Texas where they would stay for almost 30 years. During most of those years, Judy worked as a bookkeeper. In 2003 George and Judy followed Billy and his family to Kansas which is where Judy began her second career working in the school cafeteria. In 2006, she and George moved to Kyle where she happily took another position at her neighborhood elementary school cafeteria (Negley). She absolutely loved working with the kids, teachers and staff. Despite working with hundreds of children it wouldn’t take Judy anytime at all to memorize their names! She loved being called “Ms. Judy” and she loved their hugs and smiles. Judy retired in 2020 at 80 years young!
Judy was a very good cook and she loved to host friends and family for dinners at their house. One of Billy’s high school buddies called her “the hostess with the “mostess” because Judy truly believed friends were an extension of family. She didn’t care to watch sports on TV, but nothing could stop her from attending Billy’s sporting events. From little league baseball games to high school football and basketball, she was his biggest cheerleader. Judy liked to travel and enjoyed going on road trips and vacations around the country with the family. She was always up for an adventure. She also loved to dance and in their younger years, she and George enjoyed competitive square dancing! They were quite an impressive dance couple.
Her most treasured interest, and where she had the greatest enjoyment, were her grandchildren, Emily and Matthew. As anyone that knows her, you have no doubt heard about her grandchildren! She loved learning about their friends and activities. To lure them for visits, she would offer to cook her special fried chicken which worked every time! Up until the end, Judy and George could be found on their front porch talking with the neighbors as they walk by, seeing the kids from school and watching them grow up. She looked forward to Halloween so all of her schoolkids would stop by and visit. She was a loyal friend who kept up with many lifetime friends and acquaintances by cards and phone calls no matter how long it had been between visits.
Judy is survived by her husband George Greene of Kyle, Texas, her son Billy Greene and his wife Cathy Greene, her grandchildren Emily and Matthew Greene of Austin, Texas, her lifelong best friend and cousin, Patty Skinner of Avon, Indiana as well as numerous additional relatives also in Indiana. Judy is preceded in death by her brother, Kermit Lee Corbin and her parents, Kermit and Frieda Corbin.
There will be no services. The immediate family was fortunate enough to be able to visit, say their goodbyes and express their love to Judy before her passing.
George, Billy, Cathy, Emily and Matthew want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support from family and friends. We especially want to thank all of their wonderful Plum Creek neighbors. Your kindness and thoughtfulness went above and beyond the call. You all cared for and supported her (and George) during her illness and afterwards as well – it was and is extremely appreciated.
Judy was a loving, caring and giving Wife, Mom and Grandma and will be missed every day. Our lives were richer because of Judy. Her last words were “we had a lot of fun”. We sure did.
