Taking them on fossil hunting, animal tracking and fishing are just a few of the ways she has shared her love of biology with her family and students. Marsha and her late husband William H. Green Sr. were avid bird watchers. Spending hundreds of hours studying the habits of birds in their natural environment while working hours building bird feeders. Marsha was also a member of the Daughters of the King where she spent countless hours praying for others. Marsha was a devout Episcopalian and was a member of the St. John’s congregation. St Johns was the only place she and her late husband frequented where they felt loved and accepted. Marsha had many talents. From art, cooking and sewing, to knee binding. She was an incredible mother, colleague, wife and friend. While Marsha loved her church and her students, she loved her family more. Proud mother of William H.
