Eva Green

Eva Lenore Nicholson Green, 81, passed away Sunday evening (Aug. 12, 2012) at Fairmont General Hospital.

She was born Dec. 6, 1930, in Avon, Doddridge County, to the late Arley L. and Eva A. Sherwood Nicholson.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Ralph R. Green, in 1967. In 1961, the Greens purchased a house in the Bellview Community, and Mrs. Green lived there the majority of her life.

She enjoyed gardening and taking care of her home where she wanted everyone to feel welcome and safe. Her favorite times were spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was also a longtime member of the First Baptist Church in Fairmont, where she was active in the WV Baptist Women’s Circle and the Sew-n-Sew’s service organization.

Surviving are her daughters and their husbands, Patricia “Patty” and Greg Riley of Fairmont, Lorie and Joe Mutchler of Clarksburg and (close as a daughter) Jackie (Mossburg) and Sam Chambers of Fairmont. She has four grandchildren, Heather Leigh (Riley) and TSgt. Jonathan Kidd of Clovis, N.M., Capt. Gregory Jr. “Tuck” and Ellen Riley of Marysville, Calif., Jennifer Lynn Offutt and fiancé Alex Mauppin of Lubbock, Texas, Jeffrey David Offutt of Fairmont and (almost like a granddaughter) Julie Renee Chambers of Fort Worth, Texas. She has four great-grandchildren: Nathan Layne and Jonah Alan Kidd, Faith Marie Offutt and Gregory “Tres” Riley III.

Two sisters and a brother also survive, Lois C. LeMasters of Fairmont, Audrey L. Brooks of Morgantown and Arley E. Nicholson of Dundee, Mich.

Three brothers preceded her in death, James Orville, Hobert Kenneth and Cyril “Pete” Nicholson. She is also survived by three sisters-in-law, Marie, Phyllis and Jane Nicholson, and several nieces and nephews living all over the U.S.

Mrs. Green graduated from Doddridge County High School and worked several jobs in her lifetime including nurse aid at Monongalia General Hospital in the early 1950s, and sales person for Hartley’s, Jones and Stone & Thomas department stores.

Mrs. Green has donated her body to the Human Gift Registry of West Virginia University.

The family wants to thank the Emergency Department and ICU personnel and physicians at Fairmont General Hospital for the loving and thoughtful care they gave Mrs. Green, and also to Pastor Valerie Gittings for being there to support the family.

Memorial contributions may be made in Mrs. Green’s honor to the First Baptist Church, 901 Fairmont Ave., Fairmont, WV 26554.

A memorial service will be held at the First Baptist Church, 901 Fairmont Ave., Fairmont, at 2 p.m. today, with Pastor Valerie Gittings officiating. The Ford Funeral Home, Ford Chapel, 201 Columbia St., Fairmont, is assisting Mrs. Green’s family.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
