Marilyn “Lynn” Green

Marilyn “Lynn” (Moore) Green, 90, passed away on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, with her family by her side at the Linn Health Care Center in East Providence, RI. Born in St Johnsbury, Vermont, she was the daughter of the late Roger and Vienna (Brunelle) Moore. She was the sister of Richard and Robert Moore, and of the late Roger Jr., Sylvia LaPerriere, and Claire LaPerriere.

Lynn spent her entire life in the medical profession, working as a private duty nurse and later as an activities coordinator in several nursing homes until her retirement in 2014. She was a strong, independent woman and had a passion for helping others in any way that she could. She helped raise her younger brother when her own mother had to work two jobs. When her children were growing up, the neighborhood children called her Mama Green for the care and love she gave them. When her own children were grown, Lynn raised several foster children, some of whom, like Gina, continued to stay in touch through adulthood.

Lynn lived life to the fullest, and especially enjoyed swimming, knitting, opera, and was an avid reader. She was a social butterfly and loved discussion groups and book clubs. Lynn had many very close friends like Dotty Brigham and Yvonne Sandstroem.

She is survived by four children, Shelley Green, Kimberly Lemoi and her husband Larry, Stacy Kirkwood and her husband Joe, and Kristen Casey and her husband, the late James Casey of Tulsa, Oklahoma. She leaves behind her nine grandchildren Tim, Joey, Amy, Todd, Shelah, Hunter, Brendan, Josh, and Jack as well as six great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her beloved sons Marc and Todd and her grandson Justin Green. She will be dearly missed.

The burial will be private.

Even though I haven’t seen Aunt Lynn for 40 years, she and her entire family will always share a special place in my heart. She was also so kind to my family and me. Her gigantic smile was infectious and her heart was huge. I liked her a lot. Whenever I drive by Wampanoag Trail, I always remember Lynn and all her beautiful girls, and I always will. Our moms were good friends when they were young and since my mom passed away in December maybe they’ll be good friends again. All my love and condolences goes out to all of you.

I am very sorry for your loss. I grew up in neighborhood and enjoyed family friendship with Kim, Shelly and Stacy. A favorite memory was when Mrs. Green took us to beach at Lincoln woods. It was a beautiful day and we all went swimming while the snack bar juke box played Petula Clark's tune, "Don't sleep in the subway". It is a sweet memory. I wish you all sweet family memories.
