ENOSBURG FALLS– Joyce A. Green, age 82, passed away on Wednesday, September 28, 2022, surrounded by her loving family at Brownway Residence in Enosburg Falls.
She was born in Sheldon on October 25, 1939 to the late Clyde and Marion (Beyor) Perry.
Joyce grew up living in various communities around Franklin County as her parents did farm work for many families over the years. She married the love of her life, Harold W. Green on February 1st, 1958, and together they raised their family in West Enosburg and then in Enosburg Falls where they eventually made their permanent home.
Joyce enjoyed cooking and baking and going on long rides with her family, something they did most every Sunday afternoon and she and Harold had a strong affection for Mount Mansfield where they loved to take their family for picnics in the mountains. Family trips included going to Santa’s Village in New Hampshire and the Champlain Valley Fair in Essex. She and Harold also used to go to the Tunbridge World’s Fair and the Vermont State Fair and maple sugaring season found them visiting as many sugar houses as they could.
Joyce loved cats, cardinals, lighthouses, and country music as well as working in her garden. She loved babysitting and she took care of many kids over the years. She looked forward to Christmas every year and she loved her family and her special friend Barb Cassidy.
