Alice Marie Sawyer Green, born 1936, died peacefully at home on May 16, 2022, after a spirited battle with pancreatic cancer. She was predeceased by her husband Duff Green and her parents Robert and Jesse Sawyer. Alice attended Vanderbilt University.
Alice is survived by her sister Elaine Sawyer McDonald and her brother-in-law Greg McDonald. She took great pride in her daughters and grandchildren and great grandchildren. Natalie Green Weir, Karen Green Davison, and Kathryn Green remember her as an avid orchid gardener, reader, English smocked dressmaker, grammarian, and a lover of all things chocolate. She also enjoyed watching almost any sport.
Visits with grandchildren Lucas & Paige Gustafson, Wesley & Katie Zapecki- Davison, Benita Alice Barden, John Sawyer& McCall Barden, Margaret Davison & James Cooney, Jess Weir & Zane Turi, and Jack Ross were her greatest joys. Sons-in-law Jeff Weir, Lee Davison, and Kenny Ross were loved and appreciated for their support and guidance. The addition of the Michael & Shawna Ross household and Ashley Ross was a lovely surprise in later years. Great grandchildren visits by Peyton, Maxine, Everett, Tovah, and Micah were grace-filled measures of joy whether in person or digital.
The family is grateful for the love and prayers of so many who have sustained Alice through her five years living in Indianapolis. Although she was allergic to most flowers, she was passionate about social justice. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the social justice organization of your choice, or contribute to the "APCE Annual Event Michael Waters speaker fund" in Birmingham, Alabama through the link or address found here on the APCE website.”
