On Monday, July 13, 2020 Mrs. Mary Stanley Green, a loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, and friend died at the age of 83.
Mary was born on November 15, 1937 to the union of the late Joseph and Mary Jane Stanley in Conway, SC.
She attended the public-school systems of Conway, SC and later in life she moved “north” to Philadelphia PA. Mary would eventually find her way back home to Conway where she lived until her death.
We are so wonderfully blessed that the Lord allowed Mary to pass our way and be a part of our lives. Mary never met a stranger, period. No matter where she was, she had this knack of befriending all those around her as if she had known them for a lifetime and not just “seconds”. She was always there for any of her children, grandchildren, and friends whenever they were in need.
Two of Mary’s greatest joys in life was church and her grandchildren. Some would dispute this and say her biggest joy was dining out whenever she got the opportunity but those who knew and loved her knows her love for Christ was first and foremost in her life and her love for her grandchildren was immeasurable especially “Poopy” who she asked for every day. Mary was a woman of faith and was ever ready and willing to quote any verse of the bible to you. Mind you, said quoted verse usually fit the situation perfectly.
Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Willis Green, Joseph and Mary Booth Stanley (her mother and father) her eldest son Leaulter Crawford, Sr, her second eldest son, Lorenzo Green, her stepdaughter, Maxine Sowell, Wille Joe Green and Viola Bratcher Green (paternal in-laws), her sisters Ludie Mae (Galloway), Geneva (Grissett), Martha (Vereen) (twin), and Azalee (Parker) and her brother, Mack Stanley.
She leaves to cherish her memories her loving sons, Willard (Marquita) Green, Casey (Gina) Green, her loving daughters, Gertrude D. Green, Phyllis Porter (Clee), Rose Mary Wilmot(Bill), Cordelia Morton (Willie), her loving stepchildren, Robin Sowell, Renee Sowell, and Genevieve Sowell . Patricia Crawford (wife of late Leaulter Crawford, Sr.), her Sisters, Gertrude Stanley, Bertha Parker, Barbara Gaskins. 25 grandchildren and 39 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren. A lifelong friend who became family, Barbara Parks and Timothy Stroud and Elizabeth Stroud. Mary also leaves to mourn a host of sorrowing nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
