Jimmie Blacklidge Green, age 88, died Sunday, July 8th in Fort Worth, Texas.
She was born on February 22, 1930, in Richland, Texas, to Effie and Richmond Lee Blacklidge. She married Robert Green, from Frost, Texas, in December 1946. He preceded her in death in 2007. After she married she went to art school and modeled for department stores in Corsicana. They moved to Fort Worth in 1950.
She enjoyed being a mother as well as a friend to her children. At the age of 40, she decided to do something for herself and pursued a career in real estate. It was a successful decision that led to many acquaintances, friendships, and much happiness. She earned a broker’s license and started her own real estate company—Jimmie Green Real Estate. She stated many times that she loved her life and wouldn’t have wanted to live it any differently.

She will be fondly remembered by her granddaughters Catherine Dunham, Scottie and husband Ryan Culpepper, as well as her great granddaughter Sophie.
A private memorial service was held at Greenwood Funeral Home in Fort Worth, Texas for family members.
