Obituary: Nancy Rivest Green

Nancy Rivest Green.

“I am shocked to admit it, but I’ve seemed to have passed to the other side. While I was alive I experienced a good life. I hiked, kayaked, rode bikes, traveled, and had affairs with sexy guys — in books! I got to retire, ahead of many of my friends. I got to marry the man of my dreams. It was wonderful to have him by my side — always.

I was born in Massachusetts, but I didn’t become alive until I lived at the North Rim. You can get anything there…like your fully developed adult character and a husband. And make plans to visit exciting places.”

Nancy transitioned on March 20, 2022 (the 2022 Spring Equinox).

She visited 25 countries around the world. She was the award-winning special education teacher and librarian for the South Rim school and the author of three books.

She is survived by husband Keith, sisters-in-law Nancy Timper, Elaine Green and Robin Brown, brother-in-law Phil Timper, nephew Alex Earl and niece Erin Blaz. Plans are underway for a celebration of her life.
