Born and raised in Gooden Lake, MS she learned to work and provide for her family at a young age. This work ethic carried over into providing for her family while driving a school bus and opening Green Insurance Agency, then eventually going on to work for Barnett Insurance Agency.

So sorry to hear about Ms. Dot. She was such a sweet lady! Kaci loved going to her house and she was like a second grandmother to her. I remember sometimes she would walk over to mine or Pam's house . We would sit on the porch telling stories and laughing. Those were some great years and I have many fond memories of her and Mr. Green. I have to say she was treasure to have as a neighbor!! Love you Ms. Dot!!!

Ms Dot was such a great neighbor!!! We loved her and Mr Bob so much. My children my nieces and nephew will tell you today the best years of their childhood were spent on that Kickapoo hill and a big part of that was because of Mr Bob and Ms Dot. Mr Bob taught my boys all about mechanics and tinkering on anything on wheels. If you had something broke and needed a hand he was there to help you fix it and probably had the part you needed!! The love and attention they gave to my children and many other children will never b forgotten. Deer camp and Friday night pool parties were enjoyed by my children many times. Neighbors like the Greens are rare. I'm so blessed and thankful to have had them in my life. She shared recipes, meals and wonderful stories but the best thing we shared was love. I knew she loved me and she knew I loved her. She would tell you like it was and you knew it was the truth. The last time I went to her house she said "Well I thought you forgot where I lived" 😊 I am thankful she did not suffer, and I am happy for her, cause she was not whole without Mr Bob. I love you Ms Dorothy that hill will never b the same. So long until I see you again ❤️

All your neighbors on Teal Lane are with you in this difficult time and hope you find some peace in having the opportunity to be with your Mom on the deer lease prior to her peaceful death. We will be here when you get back and let us know if we can do anything while you are in Mississippi.

Love your neighbors,

All of Us!

I grew up next door to MS Dorothy, Mr Bob, Tommy, Randy, and Dennis. Our families were always very close, even attended the same church. She and I were friends on Facebook and I so enjoyed her commenting on my pictures or my posts.I am so sorry to hear of her passing. Prayers are being lifted for all family and friends. MS Dorothy will always be remembered and she will be greatly missed. Love to all.

Aunt Dot has always been one of my most favorite people! So many memories of fun times growing up with Tommy, Randy and Dennis on Northside Drive. It was always a good time gathering at Grandma Green’s house with all the extended families . Bob and Dot will always be special to me.
