Jean Cynthia Graber Green, December 17th, 1926 - October 3rd, 2022
Jean was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, graduated from Overbrook High School and West Chester State Teachers' College. She spent several years as a Philadelphia public school teacher. She married her college sweetheart, Norman Green. They had 3 children, and the family were members of Har Zion Temple.
After the birth of her children, Jean returned to work with her husband at their company, Penn Pillow Co. until its sale in 1972. They relocated to Hillsboro Beach, FL in 1975, where they resided until their deaths. Jean and Norman established Century News and Tobacco in Deerfield Beach, a well-known and frequented business which is still being run by their son, Elliott today. Jean also became a licensed Travel Agent and traveled the world extensively, often with her husband, friends, kids and grandkids to the farthest corners of the earth and everywhere in between.
Jean lived a rich and full life with people who adored her: children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and long-time friends. She had a smile and spirit that could light up a room, a passion for reading, a love of chocolate water ice, and she had a timeless sense of style that was always finished with bright pink lipstick, the proper handbag and a spritz of perfume.
She is survived by her children, Elliott (Joanne) of Boca Raton, Florida, Vivian McDorman (Larry) of Sarasota, Florida and Abbie Friedman of Las Vegas, Nevada and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Minda McDorman, Ben McDorman (Nicole), Allison Friedman and Joshua Friedman and great-grandchildren Danny and Alexandra McDorman.
