Dr. Katherine “Kate” Green died on Saturday, February 29, 2020 after a 4 ½ year struggle with ovarian cancer. She was a professor of Psychology and directed the School Psychology Masters Degree Program at Millersville University from 1982 until her retirement in 2010. She was an exceptional teacher dedicated to her students and to the field of psychology. Her family, friends, colleagues, and students would describe her in many ways. To quote her niece, Shawn, “Kate lived an amazing life. She was my hero.”
She traveled all over the world, including going on an African safari (shooting pictures only !) She was an activist, a widely read intellectual, a pianist, gardener, feminist, and liberal political thinker. She was well loved and will be missed by many.
She was the daughter of Marie and George Green who predeceased her. She is survived by her brother George and his daughter Heather, as well as her niece, Shawn, daughter of David who passed away in 2015.
There will be no funeral or memorial service as Kate never wanted a “fuss”. If desired a contribution may be made to a favorite charity in her name
She would want us to remember her for her infectious laugh, her incredible smile, and her wonderful personality. Kate truly lived her motto: “And she lived happily ever after”.
