GALENA — Patricia Ryan Green, Galena, passed peacefully into eternity on May 17, 2019. Ryan was born July 21, 1946, in Mount Vernon to Russell and Lily (LeCrone) Ryan, both of whom preceded her in death.

She was a 1964 graduate of Fredericktown High School and also graduated from The Ohio State University. In 1992, Ryan married the love of her life, Malcolm, and they shared a beautiful life together. They loved traveling, especially to Maine, but enjoyed anywhere the scenery was tranquil and the food was good.

After Malcolm’s death in 2014, Ryan continued traveling, spending time on Sanibel and Amelia Islands in Florida. She loved hiking, kayaking, and working in her yard. She also took great pleasure in attending theater productions at Otterbein University with her dear friend Carol.

In addition to her parents and husband, Ryan was predeceased by her brother, Richard, and daughter, Hope.

She is survived by her daughter, Dawn (Erik) Johnsen of Summitville, IN; her grandson, Kevin Johnsen of Colorado Springs, CO; a niece, Betty Bles (Steve) Webber of Purcellville, VA; two nephews, Jimmy (Debi) Bles of Summerfield, FL, and Patrick (Fred) Ryan of New York, NY; and several great-nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her three kitties, Catwhisker, Callie, and Pepper, all of whom brought her tremendous joy.

A memorial service will take place on Saturday, June 8, at 4 p.m. at Schoedinger Worthington Chapel, 6699 N. High St., Worthington. The family will receive friends from 3 p.m. until the time of the service.
