George Green was a beloved member of his church, his family, and his entire community. George passed away Sunday, September 11, 2022 at the age of 99.

He was born on December 13, 1922 to loving parents Katherine and Conrad Green and was one of seven siblings. George grew up in the Scottsbluff Valley where he attended Victory Hill School, graduated from Scottsbluff High School in the class of 1940, and went on to attend Scottsbluff Junior College.

George went on to purchase and own two successful farms, becoming a high ten sugar beet grower for eight years between 1960 and 1975. Though a hard working farmer, George consistently found time to give back to his community as a 4-H Leader and as Elder and President of the Church Council at St. James Lutheran Church.

One of the most important parts of George’s life was sharing it with his cherished wife Leona Green (nee Reifschneider). They were married for 71 years before she passed. They had three beautiful children that were the lights of their life: George Lee Green, Loren James Green, and Suzanne K Green.

George Green lived a life filled with love, integrity, and appreciation for God’s Plan.
