Artemis Evelyn Vetas Green

December 8, 1923 - August 13, 2014

Artemis Evelyn Vetas Green; born December 8, 1923 at 7:10 p.m.

Artemis was a faithful Greek Orthodox. She attended Sacred Heart and then graduated from Ogden High School. She worked at Glenn Brothers Music where she met the love of her life, and husband, Val S. Green. She was also employed with Hill Air Force Base as the office manager for the F-16 Fighting Falcons and retired from Hill. Artie then completed real estate school and received her Realtors License and successfully worked for Century 21 Realty.

Artie was involved in the Ladies Association of Golf City; along with exercising at the gym. She enjoyed dominos, Scrabble, and bridge with her best friend Jenny Contos. She also really enjoyed reading books by her favorite authors, Danielle Steel and Nora Roberts, and loved her crosswords.

Her greatest accomplishments were her four sons whom she loved more than anything or anyone, and whom she lived for.

Artie is preceded in death by her father Sam Vetinietes Vetas, her mother Hellen Vasialakopolas, and brother Basil Vetas.

She is survived by her four sons: Michael S. Green and longtime love Jennifer; Dennis V. Green, Mark J. Green and Jenny, and Kimm S. Green and Sylvia. Artie also had six adoring grand children, ten great grandchildren, and one great-great grandchild.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, August 22, 2014 at 11:00 a.m., at the Greek Orthodox Church of Transfiguration, 674-42nd Street, Ogden, UT. A viewing for family and friends will be held Thursday, August 21st from 6-8 p.m. at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836-36th Street, Ogden.

Interment at Leavitt’s Aultorest Memorial Park.

Artie was the most amazingly beautiful and loving mother. A mother who can take the place of all others; but who’s place no one else can take. She gave all of herself; and the unconditional love she showed and the love she touched our lives with will comfort us and live in our hearts for eternity.
“We love you mom and will miss you so much!”

To the Vetas Sons and Family members, My deepest condolence for the loss of your mother who loved all of you so dearly. May your memories and your life with her always be cherished. She was really one precious lady, and always so full of laughter and dedication to her family.

I adored your mother and knew her most of my life. Your dad as well. Our parents ran around together many years ago. Your mom and my mom were born on exactly the same day and year. They became good friends. In 1958-59-60 my family owned The Colonial Motel. We lived there. My mom threw a surprise baby shower for Artie. She was surprised alright! She went into labor and had to be rushed to the hospital. She had no names planned for the baby, in advance. In those days the sex of the baby was unknown until the infant was born. She gave birth to Kim. She personally told me that she had to come up with a name and she had just been to our house and she liked the name of my brother, KIM, so Kim...that's why you got your name..:o) after my brother...:o) in a way that is...:o) Artie was so close to Joan Farr and at various events I would be lucky enough to see your mom at some fancy gathering Dyrk would throw. She always remained so stylish and adorable. I loved that she dyed her hair dark all her life. She always opened her arms wide when she would see me, making me feel so special. I know my mother, Joan, Valora and a host of others are thrilled to have beautiful Artie back with them again. PS.. My family also owned the Ranch Motel and it was right next door to your grandpa's ice cream parlor. I was seven when we lived on location, there. Oh how I loved your grandparents! I would go over everyday and get a scoop of orange sherbet... I would take one lick and it would topple onto the ground..:o) Cute Mr. Vetas always put another scoop on. Wonderful, cherished memories I have of your grandparents and your parents. I wish you all well.... You came from "good stock" as they say. I am leaving town tomorrow afternoon until Sunday evening and so I regretfully won't be able to attend the services which just break my heart! I LOVED your mom! Love and Hugs To Each of You~ Melanie Bunderson Cisowski
