Dee Green (November 16, 1916 - April 24, 1985) was an American actress who primarily worked with the Three Stooges. As such, she is perhaps best known as the foremost of Shemp's plethora of potential brides, the plain, tall and fawning Miss Fanny Dinkelmeyer, in the comedy short Brideless Groom (wherein Emil Sitka appears as the Justice of the Peace who repeatedly attempts to marry them with the preamble "Hold hands, you lovebirds!").

"Mrs. Green", as she was known to her music students, taught music and chorus classes at Peoria Heights Grade school in Peoria Heights, Illinois in the 1960s. Through the late 70s and early 80s, Green taught Language Arts and Drama at Roosevelt Junior High/Middle School in Rockford, (now Rockford Alternative Middle School). She was responsible for more than one student pursuing a career in theater, some of whom eventually performed on Broadway in New York. At a time when music and art were a part of every student's core curriculum, Green had a measurable impact on students appreciation for the arts and music and drama. She produced annual events including Babes in Toyland and Christmas pageants that included every student in the school. Green died on April 24, 1985.
