Stephanie Green

PORTSMOUTH — Stephanie Green died Dec. 24, 2010, at Portsmouth (N.H.) Regional Hospital. The cause was lung cancer.

Stephanie was born Sept. 12, 1959, in Tennessee. She attended Oyster River schools in Durham. She studied ballet in Durham, Portsmouth and New York. She enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and during that time married a fellow Marine. Stephanie resided for many years in Los Angeles.

Returning to Portsmouth, she worked as a hair stylist at Patrix and most recently as a phlebotomist at Portsmouth Regional Hospital.

She is survived by her daughter, Cristina of Los Angeles; two sisters, Jennifer of Santa Cruz, Calif., and Heather of Baltimore, Md.; her parents, Barbara B. and Donald M. Green of Portsmouth.

She relished her work as a phlebotomist and performed her duties with great skill. She loved helping patients, meeting new people, and working with her medical associates. Her empathy for others was reflected in her quiet efforts on their behalf, for instance, while working at Patrix hair salon, she often offered young people at the nearby Chase Home the opportunity to have hair styled at no cost. She knew how this would contribute to their dignity.

She loved the beaches of Haiti and chose to support the St. Boniface Foundation, a top-rated charity, which helps the poor of Haiti.

Those who wish to commemorate Stephanie may join her in contributing to her chosen charity:
St. Boniface Haiti Foundation, 400 No. Main Street, Randolph, MA 02368.
