Nettie and George opened Green’s automatic transmission in 1963, a family legacy that is still serving Waco today.  They retired in 1996 and enjoyed traveling to the coast often, spending time of their boat and fishing. They also enjoyed time spent in their RV, going as far as Alaska. Having grown up on a farm, Nettie always enjoyed outside work, she kept a beautiful garden and yard.  She loved to fish on lakes and gulf coast.

Mimi, as she was lovingly known, was best known for the love she had for her family.  There was nothing she wouldn’t do for her children and grandchildren.  Her home was a happy one, where many found comfort.  She was a member of First Baptist Church Woodway.

She is preceded in death by her parents; five siblings; and her cherished daughter, Kay Pigg.

Green and wife Laci, Brooke Jennings and husband Jarrod, Kevin Green and wife Lauren; great grandchildren, Caleb, Emma, Jace, Jett, Brinley, and Lainey; and numerous friends.
