Anna Hollingsworth Green, 98, a resident of the Washington area for most of the past 60 years and a former member of the Women's Club of Bethesda, died of a congestive heart failure Wednesday at the Barcroft Institute in Falls Church.
Mrs. Green, who was born on a farm near Chapin, Iowa, graduated from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1905.While there she met her husband, John Wilbur Green, an official of the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey and later of the Carnegie Institution of Washington.
During their early married life, the couple lived in Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Alaska because of Mr. Green's work. They settled in the Washington area in 1923 and lived in Bethesda. From 1935 to 1939, they lived in Australia, where Mr. Green was on assignment, and then returned here.
In the 1950s, the Greens lived in Clearwater, Fla., moving back here in 1959. They went to Florida again in 1963 and lived in Hollywood until Mr. Green's death in 1971.
Mrs. Green then moved to Fairfax, where she lived with a granddaughter, Gay Thompson, who survives her.
Other survivors include a daughter, Lois G. Dahlin of Cocoa Beach, Fla., and four great-grandchildren.
