Joan Green Obituary
Joan Green, 70, born May 7, 1948 in NYC, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on Friday, June 22, 2018.

Joan was an extraordinary person--instantly liked and quickly loved by many who knew her well. Her charm, wit, intelligence and sheer joy in people and in hiking, skiing, climbing and making music here in Durango will be remembered for generations. She left us with wonderful original music, prose, poems, and songs.

Joan graduated from Cornell University where she was a staff writer and managing editor for the respected Cornell Daily Sun newspaper, and in 1969, met her future husband, Jim. She and Jim were together for 47 years, the last 40 here in their house outside Durango.

Joan took great pleasure in maintaining close contact with all of her family, and is survived by her husband, Jim Harvey of Durango, her sister, Irene Blumenkranz, of Palo Alto, CA, brothers-in-law Paul Harvey, Craig Harvey, nephews J.J. and Aaron Blumenkranz, nieces Amber Harvey and Karen Saenz and husband Albert Saenz, grand-nieces Sawyer, Payton, Truly, Juliana, Pauline and Zoe and grand-nephew Mika.

Memorial services will be held at Congregation Har Shalom on Thursday, June 28, 2018, at 11 AM.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to:
(1) Congregation Har Shalom, PO Box 9199 Durango CO 81302 (tax deductible), or
(2) Mercy Medical Center Heart and Vascular Fund, 1010 Three Springs Blvd, Durango CO 81303
