Victor - Margaret Angela (Biberstien) Green, 89, passed peacefully in her own bed at home on April 2, 2023. She was born, the second recorded C-Section for the State of Kansas only 2nd to her Sister JoAnn Biberstein Hartig in Sabetha, Kansas on September 8, 1933. She was extremely proud she shared Our Blessed Mother’s Birthday. On October 22, 1955 she married Richard M. Green. Richard (Dick) preceded her in death on May 24, 2021.
Even as a little girl in Kansas, she strived to be a Saint someday. We have no doubt that she attained that goal. She knew her faith and spent a lifetime in constant research of what was the truth. Simply put: “We were here to Love and serve the Lord.” She was a private person, shy and unsure, but tough as nails at the same time. She was rarely sick, and in the end, she wanted to die in honor of God, so she gritted her teeth and did it His way.
She was a true lover of being a homemaker. She was someone who sacrificed and weathered every storm that came her way with grace and composure. A good, kind and honest woman with a work ethic born of pride in the job she did. She believed in fairness, toughness, honesty, generosity, self-preservation, reliance, and acceptance. Always giving others the benefit of the doubt. “People are mainly good. We are called to love them no matter what!”
Margaret’s word and her vow she did not tarnish. She was dedicated and sacrificed self to God, honored her mother and father, cleaved and was faithful to her spouse for 67 years. She believed in babies, “LOTS OF BABIES!” She had 5 children, 22 grandchildren, 55+ great grandchildren and 2+ great-great- grandchildren. She appreciated great penmanship and dressing the part. Manners were paramount and vulgarity was not in her vocabulary. Her sense of humor and quick wit was unmatched.
Things most cherished to her were: The smell of coffee hanging on the cool damp morning air, hearing Dick sing as he put Rosey out. Babies and holding them swaddled and tight, and mother’s milk. She rejoiced with every new life. Margaret (“Mo/ Granma”) was the definition of PRO-LIFE!
She would talk of all God’s gifts that were all around us and the peace that lay in the air on any given day. Where sorrow is divided and joy multiplied, where we love, live and grow. Her parting words to everyone who would visit were, “Be Good, Be Kind, and Be Holy.”
A faith filled woman, she was a devout catholic and dedicated the start of each day to prayer. She ended each in praise through prayer. She was faith filled. 110% devoted to the church. “You can’t be one person on Sunday and another on Monday without God knowing it. You will stand before the Lord in the end, and everyone will know what you did.
Margaret was happy with her accomplishments of loving God, being a good daughter, a faithful wife, a dedicated mother, an athlete and a good example. She always gave Thanks to God, for providing, especially to the people who loved her and helped her faithfully.
Margaret is survived by her children: Kristina (The Late Ronald) Misener, Karolyn (Matthew) Schultz, Jay (Kim) Green, Lisa (Joseph) Dow and Regina (Edward) Schallenberger. As well as all the Grand, Great, and Great-Great children previously mentioned. Also, Many extended family. Her parents, two infant siblings and two Sisters and their husbands preceded Margaret in death.
In conclusion: “BE GOOD, BE KIND AND BE HOLY!”
-Margaret “Mo/ Granma” Biberstein Green
