Carmie Winona (Miller) Green, age 90, passed away Friday, June 5, 2020, at Beckett House, New Concord. She was born at home near Cambridge on August 10, 1929, the daughter and youngest child of the late John Earl and Lela Foss (Lafollette) Miller.
In addition to her parents, Carmie was preceded in death by her husband, Edison R. Green, who she married at the age of 16 in her parents’ home on March 5, 1946. They were married 67 years and 3 months before he passed away, also on June 5, in 2010. Also preceding her in death was an infant son, David; daughter-in-law, Vickie Green; brothers, Forrest and Glen Miller, and sisters, Mildred Work and Evelyn Bond Everly.
She is survived by sons Steve Green, Sebring, FL; Randy (Debbie) Green, Byesville; and Jeff (former wife, Nancy) Green, Bexley; grandchildren, Andrea Gander, Byesville; Matt (Leahann) Green, Sebring, FL; Adam (Shannon) Green, Byesville; Jordan (Kaylee) Green, Blacklick; and Amy (Mike) Golden, Cambridge; great-grandchildren, Taylor, Lauren, Noah, Jemma, Ellie, Harleigh, and Burke; brother, Flavil (Verna) Miller; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Carmie was a faithful, life-long member of the Church of Christ and along with Edison, a founding member of Stop 9 Church of Christ. Born into a musically-talented family, she began sharing her beautiful singing voice as a teen on the radio with brother, Flavil; and over the years, performed with many local musical groups, including: Mother Singers; Sweet Adelines; a Sweet Adelines quartet, the Fair Notes; New Gospel Herald Quartet; Get-A-Long Gang; and Memory Makers. An adept, self-taught guitar player, she was a true “Cowboy Sweetheart” and to the delight of audiences, could yodel with the best of them.
Carmie was a woman of many accomplishments who lived life to the fullest every day for more than 90 years. A loving, devoted wife, mom, grandma, and great-grandma (affectionately nicknamed G.G.), she had a wonderful, infectious sense of humor and like her mother and sisters, was an exceptional cook and baker. She and Edison loved to travel and were proud of the fact they had visited every one of the 50 states and also Canada, Mexico, and Europe.
Carmie Green made an indelible impression on everyone she ever met, and will be greatly missed by those who loved her. For those wishing to pay their final respects, calling hours will be Monday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Stop 9 Church of Christ, Byesville where services will follow at 1:00 p.m. with Evang. Woody Biggs and Mark Beros officiating. Burial to follow at Northwood Cemetery, Cambridge.
