Dolores Logan Green, 74, a former free-lance writer and editor who was active in church and community work, died Wednesday at her Washington home after a stroke.

Born in Baltimore, Mrs. Green moved here in 1924. Before her marriage in 1929 to the late Philip W. Green, an internal revenue agent, she was secretary to Mother Anna Dengel, founder of the Medical Missionary Sisters religious community.

In the 1940s and 1950s, Mrs. Green contributed articles to Reader's Digest and to The Sign and Extension Magazine, two Catholic publications. d

She also was editor of "The Franciscan Chimes," a monthly publication of the Third Order of St. Francis, on a voluntary basis in the 1950s and 1960s. She had been a member of the Order since 1929.

Mr. Green also had been a volunteer for the old Community Chest here.

She was a member of St. Anthony's Catholic Church in Washington and its Sodality and choir.

Survivors include 12 children, Joseph A. Green of Adelphi, Mary Anne Sonnenschein of Hyattsville; Cecilia Pincus of Hampton, Va., Bernadette Rogers of El Dorado Springs, Mo., Agnes Cammack of Leesburg, Teresa Rosser of Nevada, Mo., Peter P. Grreen of Monroe, Ohio, Michael K.Green of Silver Spring, Patrick G. Green of Lanham, Jane Gilroy of Hyattsville, Dolores Milmoe of Pittsburgh and Daniel R. Green of Washington; 54 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Jesuit Mission Bureau in Baltimore or the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate, Wash.
