Janice L. Green, of Newnan, Georgia, passed away peacefully on November 7, 2017, in her apartment at the home of her son and daughter-in-law. She succumbed after a brief battle with lung cancer.

Mrs. Green was born May 18, 1937, in Atlanta, Georgia, to Charles H. Leftwich and Madeline E. (Walters).

She was a dedicated mother, grandmother, President and life member of the PTA. She was also an avid bowler, and served as Chaplain on the Ritual Team for many years with Women of the Moose, Chapter 1303, in Forest Park, Georgia. Mrs. Green loved to knit, travel, read, and shop. She was known for giving an honest opinion when asked.

She worked in the hospitality industry at Peachtree Plaza Hotel when it first opened, worked security for Turner Entertainment, and worked for the State of Georgia Lottery as a receptionist until retirement. Mrs. Green was a member of the Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Hapeville, Georgia, where she greatly appreciated the sermons, music, and many special friendships.

Mrs. Green was the older of two children. She was preceded in death by her parents Charles H. Leftwich and Madeline E. (Walters), sister Tona Spence, and son Charles E. Green. Mrs. Green is survived by her son Kirk Green, daughter-in-law Kimberly (Korhorn), grandsons Joseph and Benjamin Green, and Nicholas Little.
