LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Family members have confirmed that a former member of the Louisville Metro Council has died after a sudden illness.
According to her daughter, Dr. Judith Green, 57, suffered a massive heart attack early Tuesday morning.
Green, a dentist, served as District 1 councilwoman starting in January 2007 after being elected the previous November. She re-elected to a new four-year term in November 2010, but resigned from the council on September 9, 2011 after being accused of mishandling funds by an ethics committee. Her seat was later declared vacant by a unanimous vote of fellow council members.
Joy Green tells WAVE 3 her mother was "a heart-filled giving kind of person."
Green leaves behind 13 children and a number of grandchildren. Funeral arrangements are pending.
