The AFL community is reeling following the death of Anna Green, the wife of Demons champion Brad Green.

Ms Green, a mum and lifestyle blogger, died on Monday, leaving behind two young sons, Oliver and Wilba.

Tributes have started pouring in for the former flight attendant, who described herself on Instagram as a “lover of sunshine, palm trees, yoga, beaches, travel, summer, sunsets, cocktails [and] style”.

Her husband made a touching message to his wife on social media.


“Goodbyes are not forever, are not the end. It simply means, I’ll miss you until we meet again. Rest easy my darling #xxx3boys.”

The Green family also released a statement on Tuesday.

"It is with the heaviest of hearts that we confirm the passing of beloved mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend, Anna Green," it reads.

"Anna suffered a cardiac arrest last week and passed away peacefully at lunch time yesterday surrounded by her immediate family.

“Anna leaves behind two sons, a husband and distraught family and friends. Our sincerest condolences are with Brad, his children and everyone affected by this horrible news.”

Ms Green has in recent years worked in the fashion industry, including launching online women’s boutique Wilo Green in 2012, and starting an Instagram blog.
