A Woman of Warmth and Light

Pat Green

Patricia (Pat) Anne Fitzgerald Green, 88 of Blairstown, NJ, former long time resident of Montclair, NJ, passed peacefully at home, surrounded by family on December 16, 2023.

Pat’s passions in life included spending quality time with family, traveling the world with her husband and friends, summering in Savannah while staying in her beautiful home on Tybee Island, studying philosophy and the French language, and attending countless Broadway shows with her sister.  

Pat was active in a host of local organizations such as The Garden Club of Montclair, in which she served as President from 1999-2001. She also held the offices of 2nd Vice President-Program Chair, 1st Vice President-Membership Chair. During her 30 year membership, Pat’s  talent in Flower Design and Horticulture led her to achieve The Elsie Bristol Novice Flower Design Award, The President’s Trophy for Flower Arrangers and The Estelle Leibrecht Horticulture Award. 

Pat was known for her acts of kindness and generosity to those in need. Pat delighted in being alive. Her exuberance and zest for life attracted throngs of people to her. The world is now dimmer without her light and a bit colder without her warmth and zeal.

Pat is preceded in death by her handsome husband Peter P. Green III.
