Assemblyman Jerry Green's obituary

Assemblyman Jerry Green, on the floor of the Assembly,
where he was Speaker Pro Tempore.


I had heard through a source that Assemblyman Jerry Green's arrangements were not being entrusted to a Plainfield funeral home, but to the Woody Funeral Home in Roselle.

That makes sense when you consider that Jerry, after all, was a Roselle native.

Checking Sunday evening, I find that the funeral home has posted a lengthy obituary to its website (see here). As of late Sunday no obituary had appeared online on either the Ledger or Courier websites.

Plainfielders will no doubt be disappointed to learn that there will be no public viewing or service. That also fits well with Jerry's intense sense of privacy.

The obituary does say, however, that a memorial service is being planned.
