~ The Obituary ~

     Mrs. Inez W. Greendeparted from this Earthly to Eternal Life on September 2, 2020 at MUSC Hospital in Mullins, South Carolina after a long illness. She was born to Minnie and Marion White in Clarendon County on February 2, 1927.

     She received her education in Clarendon Public Schools. Her parents relocated to Duford, South Carolina when she was a teenager. She was converted at an early age and became a member of Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Horry County where she remained for many years before joining Mill Creek Baptist Church in Mullins South Carolina. She was married to Sammie Green Sr. and was the mother of eight beautiful children who she loved dearly. 

     She was preceded in death by her parents Minnie and Marion White, son: Sammy Green Jr.; daughters Sylvia Oliver and Jeanette Haynesworth; brothers: James White and Willie White; sisters: Geneva Lyles, Azalee Fariss, Rovena Small, and a niece who lived with her for over 40 years, Dorothy Small Genwright. 

     Mrs. Inez Green developed a love for cooking when she began working at Dixon Café in Mullins, South Carolina and retired many years later from the Pizza Shack as head cook. Customers came from all over because they loved that good soul food that only she could cook. 

     Mrs. Green loved dressing every day regardless of whether she was going out or staying at home. She was always well dressed from head to toe with her jewelry lipstick and all. She was a very giving and uplifting person. Her grandchildren enjoyed talking to her because she was so comical and always gave them advice about life. There was no one Greater to her grands like their” MUHMUH “.
