From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Judith "Judy" Green (October 26, 1931 - September 14, 2001) was a New York novelist, socialite and philanthropist.

She was born and brought up in New York, on Central Park West, the daughter of a wealthy businessman. She attended Vassar College. From an early age she moved in social, publishing and showbusiness circles. Dorothy Fields, the Broadway lyricist, was a maternal relative.

When she was in her late 20s, by which time she was already a published author, she married Bill Green, a businessman almost twice her age. She went on to author three more books. Irving Lazar was her first agent.[1]



Judy and Bill Green resided on Park Avenue. They also had had, at one time, a Mount Kisco estate, where they entertained lavishly for, among others, Frank and Barbara Sinatra, Ann and Morton Downey, Bennett and Phyllis Cerf, Rosalind Russell and Freddie Brisson, Pamela and Leland Hayward, and Claudette Colbert.[2] Bill Green died from heart disease in his late 60s. The Greens had two children, a daughter, Christina (Mrs. Lloyd Gerry), and a son, Nicholas.


She endured a 10 month-long battle with pancreatic and liver cancer and died on September 14, 2001 at home, aged 69, having left the hospital for the last time on Monday, September 10, unknowingly avoiding the logistical problems caused by the 9/11 attacks the following day.[3]
