GREEN: Leah Drucker Green, age 74, of Pittsburgh, passed away peacefully on Friday, February 23, 2018. She was a dedicated social worker and lifelong traveler who visited nearly 100 countries on every inhabited continent. Leah, the daughter of Sonia and Nathan Drucker, was born in Pittsburgh on March 3, 1943. She graduated from Taylor Allderdice High School and earned a bachelor’s degree, master’s in education and a master’s of social work, all from the University of Pittsburgh. She began her career as a clinical social worker at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, and then continued her career at University Orthopedics. She then spent almost three decades as an employee and volunteer at St. Margaret Memorial Hospital, and was a critical supporter of the “Bed Fund” program to provide financial assistance to disadvantaged people seeking medical care. She also participated in missionary work and taught English overseas. Leah was enthusiastic about the arts and an epicure. She loved stylish eyewear and had a wry sense of humor. Her passions included attending theater and film and gardening; she was especially adventurous in her thirst for unconventional experiences and eagerness to sample new cuisine. She will be remembered as a devoted mother, sister and friend. Leah is survived by her son Nathanael “Nick” Green, and her brothers David and Saul Drucker.
