Bob and Janice Green are a delightful couple who reside in Poth and will soon celebrate 49 years of marital bliss on Oct. 3. They are both retired educators.

Bob, originally from Pennsylvania, attended St. Mary’s University, while Janice studied at Our Lady of the Lake. The two actually met at a mixer dance held at OLLU. They dated and exchanged vows in 1964 in St. Paul’s Church in Mission.

Almost 49 years later, their lives are fully blessed with three children and their spouses, and six grandchildren. Their oldest is Kathryn with three children who live in San Antonio. Then Michael has one girl and resides in New Braunfels, followed by Kevin, who has a girl and stepson and lives in Leander.

As educators, their career backgrounds are very different. While Janice taught her first year in the Valley at Santa Rosa, she spent 30 years at Poth ISD, teaching fifth-grade self-contained, junior high English, reading, science, and arts and crafts. She was also the cheerleading sponsor.

Bob, on the other hand, was the band director at Comstock, Santa Rosa, Poth, Karnes City, Kenedy, and Flatonia. He also taught science, P.E., World History, sponsored a One-Act Play, and coached tennis.

This busy, talented couple have not sat still since retirement. Upon Janice’s retirement, they took a seven-week vacation by car and traveled to Kansas, Ohio, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, staying with friends and relatives.

Janice has spent time expanding her interests and developing her talents in arts and crafts. She belongs to more than 14 guilds, from quilting, needlework, stitchery, and beading to hand weaving, rug hooking, painting, pottery/ceramics, and scrapbooking. She attends seminars and conventions across Texas. She also belongs to a card-making group in Universal City and has a group that comes to her house to learn the craft.

Another activity close to her heart is the San Antonio Daylily Society, where she won “Best in Show” for her Midnight Magic daylily. Janice has more than 100 varieties of daylilies and requires Bob’s help to care for them.

Besides sharing a green thumb, Bob and Janice also are active with the Blessed Sacrament Church Choir. Janice sings as a member, and Bob is the director.

Bob has also been a member of the County Line Community Band since 1996, and plays the French horn, bass clarinet, bass horn, and is the most proficient with the trombone. The band will be playing in the Floresville Event Center, and has played at local nursing homes, the Peanut Festival Parade, Longhorn Museum in Pleasanton, the Oak Island Methodist Christmas concert, and at St. Hedwig American Legion on Memorial Day. Bob writes music to arrange a new song occasionally for the band.

When he has time, Bob enjoys fishing at Choke Canyon as well as gardening in his back yard.

Janice is also the Eucharistic Minister at Blessed Sacrament and belongs to the Floresville Musical Club. To stay fit, she does line dancing, Curves, and belongs to the TOPS Club, which stresses nutrition.

Bob and Janice Green have been living a busy life even though they are dealing with health issues. They are active, productive, retired teachers in our community, and I dare say that Lily, their green and yellow parakeet, would agree.

Pris Kincaid is a retired Texas educator who lives in Wilson County.
