Mrs. Greene had been in her unusual health and had visited in Bentonville and Rogers during the previous week. She had attended Sunday school in the morning and was preparing to come to Bentonville to visit, when she was suddenly stricken with a heart attack, and instantly expired.

Besides her husband and son she leaves one brother Judge W.A. Dickson of Bentonville, two nephews, Joe Dickson of Bentonville and Price Dickson of Fayetteville, a large number of cousins and a host of friends to mourn her departure.

She became a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Bentonville early in life and after her marriage transferred her membership to the Presbyterian Church at Pea Ridge, where she was active and earnest in church work until the time of her death.
