Helen Grace (Stuut) Greene, 77, of Three Rivers, went to be with her heavenly father on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2010. She was born June 28, 1932 in Kalamazoo, the daughter of Neil and Alice (Van Dyke) Stuut. She was a graduate of Kalamazoo Central High School.
Helen was a resident of Three Rivers for the past 45 years. She worked for seven years at Hoppin Elementary and later as the Director of Personnel for Armstrong Machine Works for over 14 years. She was a very active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Three Rivers.
Helen enjoyed playing piano for any occasion, including church services, student band recitals and family holiday parties, taking long walks outdoors, fishing for the “big ones” off the Frankfort coast in Lake Michigan as well as “little ones” in her favorite spot on Crystal Lake, bowling on the Wii with her beloved granddaughters or playing word games with anyone foolish enough to challenge her, baking the best pecan pies in the world, being with other people, especially her family, serving her church and above all having a constant positive attitude and simply enjoying life. We will never, ever, stop missing her.
She leaves to cherish her memory her loving family: husband, Leslie “Les” Greene, whom she married on July 15, 1955; son, Brian (Ellen) Greene of Saugatuck; daughter, Melanie (Steve) Olson of Lansing; granddaughters, Ashton and Lauren Greene; brother, Dave (Judith) Stuut of Kalamazoo; sister, Carol Stuut (Ann Lauderdale) of Manitou Beach; many nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 4 at the Hohner Funeral Home.
Memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 5 at the First Presbyterian Church of Three Rivers, with Pastor Jon Deily officiating.
