ENGLEWOOD, Fla. — Elinor Paradis Green died Tuesday, June 16, 2020, peacefully at her home in Englewood, Fla., surrounded by her family.

She was 88 years old and lived the majority of her life in Southbury. Her husband, Samuel Green, III, predeceased her on the same date in 2013. They were married for 59 years.

She is survived by her three daughters, Donna Sharp of Leesburg, Fla., Michele Melton of Englewood, Fla., and Lisa Bell and her husband, David, of Argyle, Texas, as well as her loving sister, Mary Petterson of Punta Gorda, Fla.; her five grandsons, Michael Sharp of Middlebury, Jason Sharp and his wife, Katie, of Long Beach, Calif., Clay Melton of Camden, Tenn., Quinn Talin of Southbury and Gage James of Watertown, Tenn.; one great-grandson, Clayton O’Neal Melton of Camden, Tenn., and another great-grandson on the way, due in September, and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her son, Timothy Green, and her daughter, Kathleen Green James.

A wonderful mother, sister, grandmother and aunt, she loved her family deeply and was the kindest woman they knew. In her final days, she showed just how strong she truly was. She has gained her wings and is finally reunited with those who have gone before her.

Burial services will be private.
