Sharon Green passed peacefully at her daughter’s home on April 29,2022, surrounded by friends and family, after a short yet brave fight with small bowel cancer.
Sharon was the second and youngest child of Alvin and Doris Green of Coolidge; born October 6, 1961. She graduated from Coolidge High School in 1980 as a National Honor Society member.
Sharon was a very proud mother to Meagan and “The Twins” but always said nothing compared to the feeling of being a grandmother.
Sharon was a long-time resident of Coolidge, Tx having been born and raised there. Although she moved away a time or two Coolidge was always home. As a child she was very active with the church and youth group in Coolidge. She had many fond memories of church camp at Latham Springs and of traveling with her youth choir group. She was gifted with a beautiful singing voice that many remembered for years even after she had stopped singing.
Sharon also loved riding horses and barrel racing from a very young age. This was a love she inherited from her Uncle Stoney and carried with her the rest of her life. As a child they often found her attempting to sleep in the barn with her horse, Apache. Later in life she would share this love with her children, two nieces, her grandchildren, and even a few kids in the community who came to her for riding lessons.
Besides being a mother one of Sharon’s proudest accomplishments was being a nurse. As a young single mother of three she worked two and sometimes three jobs at a time. One of those jobs was at the Mexia State School where she was blessed with the opportunity to attend Navarro College’s nursing program while still working. Although it was difficult caring for three small kids, working multiple jobs, and going to school, with the help of her parents and attending with her best friend Annette she completed nursing school with a 4.0 GPA in 1991 and had a long and fulfilling career as a nurse before retiring early to be a “stay at home granny”.
Sharon loved simple, country life, country western dancing, horses, reading, Elvis, and John Travolta movies. She also loved her Hubbard Cowboy Church family and her close group of lifelong friends known lovingly as “The Girls”.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Alvin and Doris Green of Coolidge, her beloved niece Lauren Green of Mexia, her childhood best friend and love of her life Reagan Jacobs of Coolidge, nephew Dustin Richards of Coolidge, her grandparents and several aunts and uncles.
She is survived by her daughter Meagan Green Brown and husband Jimmy of Hewitt; daughter Jordan Moore and husband Cody of Hubbard; son Jacob Moore of Waco; brother Richard Green and wife Robin of Mexia; Aunt Betty Lemanski of Bellmead; grandchildren Samuel and Richard Moore of Hubbard and Aubrey Brown of Hewitt; a bonus son, Terry Joe Maas of Mart, multiple cousins whom she loved dearly, several nieces and nephews and her lifelong friends/sisters Lydia, Donna, Annette, Analisa, Bonnie, and Cindy.
