CREVE COEUR ~ Barbara Ann Green, 72, of Creve Coeur, passed away at 3:48 a.m. Friday, October 12, 2018 at her home from ALS.

Born July 30, 1946 in Galesburg to Ralph Berwyn and Bernita Rae (James) Tasker, she married Earl Thomas Green, Sr. on September 3, 1967 in Kahoka, Missouri.  He died March 29, 2010.  She was also preceded in death by her parents; two granddaughters, Jasmine Green and Kaylie Green; three brothers, Larry Tasker, William Tasker, and David Tasker; and two sisters, Linda Nelson and Susan Griffith.

Surviving are one daughter, Candy (Bill) Robosky of Peoria; one son, Earl “Tom” (Teri) Green, Jr. of Chillicothe; one granddaughter, Heather Bicknell of Bloomington; three grandsons, Tre Robosky of Peoria, Seth Green and Logan Green, both of Chillicothe; two great-granddaughters, Hadleigh Bicknell and Emmalynn Bicknell; four brothers, Richard (Lois) Tasker of Round Lake Beach, Stephen Tasker of Bloomington, Jeffrey (Rosalyn) Tasker of Michigan, and Mike Tasker of Arizona; four sisters, Eileen Tasker of North Carolina, Sarah (Daryl) Stalter of Heyworth, Judy Bowman of Minnesota, and Kathy (Ron) Lubinski of Arizona; and many nieces and nephews.

Barbara worked in the restaurant industry and later owned and operated a Convenient Food Mart and the Ice Cream Shoppe in the Pekin Mall with her husband.

She was a huge influence to so many people because of her strength and dedication.  By caring for her husband and family through the best and worst times, she taught everyone what true love, strength, and dedication was.

Her pastimes were playing pinochle, bowling, fill-it-in puzzles, sitting outdoors, working in her yard and flowers, and watching older television shows.  But most of all, she loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-granddaughters.  Her smile was contagious to all who saw it.

Her funeral will be at 10 a.m. Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory in Creve Coeur.  Pastor Mike Jones will officiate.  Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.  Burial will be at Lakeside Cemetery in Pekin.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to an education fund at CEFCU in honor of Barbara Green for her grandsons and great-granddaughters.
