Lorna Green

It is with great sadness that the League informs our community of the passing of Lorna Green. For the better part of two decades, Lorna was the League’s Director of Operations. Her self-proclaimed title was the League’s “jack of all trades.” Lorna was the person who kept the League running day in and day out. She was the first person you would see walking into the office and was often the last person you’d see as you left. Lorna always had time to chat and always asked about your family.  She was the premier baker of the office and never passed up an opportunity to bake brownies, rum cake, or another dessert to help celebrate a birthday or other happy occasion.

Lorna was also the first person you saw at the National Bike Summit. She would command the check-in table from the start of the Summit to the very end, always with a smile and a friendly greeting. As a DC native, she had keen insights into the city’s events, transportation corridors, schools, neighborhoods, parks, people, and more. She was always willing to share her knowledge of DC and Maryland with those interested in learning.  

Lorna had been looking forward to retirement and spending more time with her son Christopher, and her brand new granddaughter Rose, whom she was visiting at the time of her passing. 

She was a mother, grandmother, community activist, teacher, and friend. Lorna’s abrupt departure from this world leaves us heavy-hearted; we greatly mourn her loss.
