In 1959, the Green family moved to Odessa, Texas, where June taught at Odessa High School for 19 years, and was a member at Sixth and Jackson Church of Christ. In 1978 the family moved to San Angelo, Texas where June and Alton opened Southland Frame Center & Gallery and stayed in operation for over twenty years. After the couple retired they enjoyed many camping trips to Colorado and New Mexico and made some wonderful lifelong friends in the Twin Mountain Campers group.
