Marilyn A. (Smith) Green, a 57 year resident of Manhattan Beach, passed away peacefully at home at the age of 89 on December 16th. Marilyn attended USC, was a member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority and graduated in 1952. She taught at Short Ave. Elementary School in the LAUSD for 30 years where she shared her affection for learning with the children she loved. She globe-trotted every summer and retired from teaching in 1993.
Marilyn's life was as a mother, friend, learner, educator, giver and explorer. Whether on a cruise, tour or journey, she never lost her appetite to travel the world – and had a long list of places yet to see. She supported human health & animal protection efforts and her adventurous, gentle soul will be missed by those whose lives she graced.
She is survived by sons Matt and Dennis Smith, daughter-in-law Holly (Matt) and granddaughters Tori, Mandy & Lauren. A celebration of her life will be held on January 17th. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to doctorswithoutborders.org.
