Margaret Green 83, of Austin, Texas passed peacefully to be with the Lord on July 9, 2014. Margaret was born in Waco, Texas on October 17, 1930, lived most of her life in Austin and has resided at Park Bend Nursing Home for the past 3 years.
Margaret came from a large, loving family and was predeceased in death by daughter, Bella Green Shannon; son, Larry Sprouse and grandson, Kevin Pearman as well as numerous brothers and sisters. She is survived by brothers Jimmy Reed and wife Rose of Pflugerville; Kirt Reed and wife Susan of Austin; sister, Marie Crumley of Leander, and Gail Schofield and husband C. J. Schofield of Cedar Park; daughter, Linda Lester and husband Ray of Austin; son, Darrell Green of Pflugerville; Marvin Green Jr. and Annette of New Braunfels. She is also survived by grandchildren Chad Pearman of Pflugerville; Ashley Green of Austin; Mitchell Green of Austin; Allen Shannon of California; Great-grandchildren, Aden Williams of Austin; and Simone Pearman of Pflugerville.
Margaret was a member of the Central Church of Christ in Pflugerville and enjoyed worship there for the past several years. She loved the Lord and kept his commandments. We know she finds comfort with him now as we should also find comfort in this fact.
A passion of hers was dogs and cats. Before it became necessary for her to enter the nursing home she had a dog named J. R. He was more than just a dog to her – he was like her child. She even had pillows with his and her pictures on it. She fed every stray cat in the neighborhood. Sometimes, she would be feeding 10 – 12 cats at one time every day. I think the cats sent out e-mails where to come to get the best meals.
After her children were grown, and Margaret wasn't playing with J. R. or feeding the cats, she loved watching television. She would often record shows if 2 played at the same time that she could not watch them, so that she could catch up later. She had a t.v. in her living room and one in the bedroom. She liked to watch programs from bed at night and fall asleep while watching different shows. She really liked the old shows like "Andy Griffith", "Matlock" and a variety of detective shows.
She also loved to eat out. It was well known that her favorite restaurant was "Amayas". Her brothers Kirt and Jimmy often took her there to eat the best Mexican food in Austin. She always looked forward to their visits as well as that great food that she enjoyed so much.
She dearly loved living at Park Bend Nursing Home. When it first became necessary for her to live there because of her memory, she was not happy. However, very quickly, she became acquainted with the wonderful staff and other residents. Soon afterwards, she begged us not to ever take her out of there. She loved it there so much. She said "they take such good care of me here and I don't have to cook or do dishes, and they feed me so good." It appeared that she was everyone's favorite there as well. The staff told the family constantly how pleasant Ms. Green was, how easy she was to work with. Once, there was even an older male resident that chased her around begging her to marry him. We told him that we (the family) would not give our permission that she was too young to get married. They miss her there already so do we.

Due to Margaret's love for animals, in lieu of flowers we are asking that all donations be made to your local Humane Society.

"I have so many good memories of time i spent with the Green Mrs. Green always treated me like family. As a teenager i spent so much time at Mrs. Greens..." Marian Gusseer (smithville, TX)
