She is survived by her sister, Ona Myrle Davis; her four children, Rosemary and Roy Middlebrooks, Louise and Andy Henn, Joe Carl and Michelle Greene, William and Anita Greene; her grandchildren, David and Curtis Greene, Britney and Scott Hammock, Christopher Henn; and her three great-grandchildren Chaz Hammock, Hunter Hammock and Cody Hammock.

She was preceded to Heaven by her parents, Thomas and Marah Youngblood; a sister, Evelyn Youngblood; three brothers, Hebron, Motes and Hub Youngblood; her husband, Joe Curtis Greene; and a granddaughter, Michelle Henn.

She loved Troy and was so proud to live here until circumstances lead her to Jonesboro, Georgia. Her heart was always in Troy. The biggest smile would come to her face when she would see the Troy water tower when returning to Troy. She is now back home in Troy.

Active pallbearers will be Sam Kitchens, Doug Kitchens, William Davis, Herbie Davis, Rickey Davis, and Dake Davis.

Memorials may be made to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation 60 East 56th Street, 8th floor, New York, NY 10022
