In her own words:

PATSY ELOISE JONES GREENE was born in Roswell, NM on August 13, 1935 to Charles Anderson Jones and Olive Eleanor Lhamon Jones. My brother Walter was born in 1942. I was schooled in Roswell, Capitan, and Loretto Academy in Santa Fe, and graduated from Capitan High School in 1953. I attended NMSU for one year and met future husband, Charles Greene, for the second time. The first time was in 1946 when he was working for the Hendricks Co., the owners of the Flying H ranch and also the 9H6 ranch my father was managing. In 1953, Charles came to the Zeta Tau Alpha house where I had baked a pie. Only after we were married on August 19, 1954 did he find out it was frozen. (Charles’s note: it wasn’t the pie that made me marry her.) I attended NMSU to get a BS in Home Economics but got my MRS instead.

Michael Charles (Danielle) was born in 1955 while his Dad was in the Army in Alabama. Walter Harry (Elizabeth) was born in 1957. The two births paved the way to my future. I have spent my life trying to bring smiles, happiness and love to my family and friends. Grandsons James (Stefanie), Parker, Bryan (Anne), Austin (Aubrie), Eric (Shea) and Cayman (Christina) were each one different and brought so much happiness to my life. Then along came the blessed great-grandchildren, Hunter, Alexa and Lily.

I spent very little time in the workforce. While in Corvallis, Oregon I was office manager for Mayflower Moving Co. Later I spent two years as volunteer coordinator for Mesilla Valley Hospice. This was a very rewarding time to be able to pay back for all they did for Mom and Dad during their last days.

Our many travels during Charley’s work years, and then with our RV club, has brought many wonderful times and adventures. The granddaddy of all trips was when our children sent us to Australia for our 50th wedding anniversary. For this we can never say thank you enough. To each and every one of you – I love you. Live your life to the best, love each other and hug often.


Patsy was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin and helpmate. She was a strong person, believed in the Lord, and always put a smile on the face of her friends. She had a great life before lung cancer which caused her death. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

If you wish to honor Patsy, the family requests in lieu of flowers, you make a donation to your favorite charity. A family memorial service will be held at a later date when it is safe to gather.
