Alma Weston Green, beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, Momma Goose, Buddy and Greystone Girl went from love to love on April 6, 2019, surrounded by her family.

She married the love of her life, Dr. Robert Lorenza Green in 1956. They raised four children in Winston-Salem, NC and are blessed with 13 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. They have been residing in Pine Knoll Shores, NC and Raleigh NC for many years.
Alma was a woman of many talents and creativity. She excelled at needlework of every kind, sewing, knitting, embroidery, needle point, and cross stitching to name a few. She was also a painter and designer. Her entertaining and gourmet dinners were legendary. Her generous hospitality and open table were a gift to all. There was always room at her table. And her sense of humor, spunk, easy laugh, and twinkle in her eye made all feel loved and welcomed.
