Wilmington- Evelyn C. Greene, 91, died peacefully Tuesday, January 7, at her own home. She was born July 20, 1928, in Wilmington, the daughter of Ralph and Maude (Temple) Canedy.
After graduation from Wilmington High School, she married her high school sweetheart Robert L. Greene on July 13, 1946. Together, they raised their family in Wilmington and ran their family business, Greene’s Servicenter, from 1963 until they retired.
Mrs. Greene was involved in Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Sunday school, and church choir. She even refereed field hockey games. As a teenager, she could be seen riding her horse around town. Evelyn and Bob enjoyed traveling, mostly driving to their destinations, including Alaska and Canada, to the Southwest, and much time spent at their camp in Kennebago, ME. She enjoyed learning about Native American cultures from these areas through an extensive library of books. They enjoyed sugaring and being involved in the community, including the Eastern Star, Masons, and Wilmington Historical Society.
