A memorial service for Dr. Daniel Crosby Greene, a retired pediatrician and public health official, will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Towson Unitarian Universalist Church, 1710 Dulaney Valley Road in Lutherville.
Dr. Greene, a 26-year Guilford resident, died at his home of complications from pneumonia. He was 81.
Born in Boston, Dr. Greene was a 1932 graduate of Harvard College and earned his medical degree from the Yale medical school in 1937. He also earned a master's degree in public health from the Johns Hopkins University in 1954.
Dr. Greene was a major in the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II, serving as a health officer in China. After the war, he maintained a private practice in Pittsfield, Mass., until 1953.
He served as the assistant director for maternal and child health for the New York State Health Department from 1954 to 1957. He was the pediatric consultant and the public health officer for Washington County from 1957 to 1965.
Dr. Greene then became a staff pediatrician at the Rosewood Center in Owings Mills, a position he held for 14 years until his retirement at age 70. During his retirement, he continued his interest in the medical profession while pursuing travel and an interest in the arts.
He was an active member of the Towson Unitarian Universalist Church, where he sang in the choir.
Dr. Greene is survived by his wife of 54 years, the former Charlotte "Lottie" Dusser de Barenne; a sister, Emily Greene Dusser de Barenne of Peterborough, N.H.; five daughters, Kate Brodeur of Hudson, N.H., Rebecca King of Bowie, Elise Drew and Emily Levings, both of Chesapeake Beach, and Meg Hyman of Baltimore; 12 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
