Violet Lee Banister Green, 88, of Tiltonsville, Ohio, died May 23rd, 2022, in St. Clairsville, Ohio.  

       She was born August 9, 1933, in Wheeling, West Virginia, the daughter of Rev. Joseph S. and Mary (McConaughey) Banister.  She graduated from Bridgeport, High School in 1952.  In 2005, she married Robert Green, in Martins Ferry, Ohio.

       Violet worked in the dietary department of Martins Ferry Hospital for 28 years.  She also spent a lot of her time, throughout the years, volunteering in her church and area nursing homes.  Violet was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star for almost 60 years.  She worked her way through the chairs and served as Worthy Matron.

      Violet was a long-time member of the Tiltonsville United Methodist Church.  She was a huge fan of Buckeye Local high school football, often attending games.  She was also a big fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Pittsburgh Pirates.  She was an avid bowler.  She was also known for her crafting: crocheting, beading, and making table favors for parties and dinners.  She was a generous, doting aunt and friend to all.
