Funeral services for Mrs. Lula Green, mother of Rev. J. H. Green, Pastor of Mayfield Baptist Church, were conducted Wednesday, March 18, from Ebenezer Baptist Church, Chapel Hill, Texas. She was 97 years old.
Mrs. Green was the baby daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Osborne Routt and was born in Chapel Hill, Texas, where she received her early schooling. She united with this church at an early age. She met and married Mr. Jim Green on September 27, 1888. To this union, thirteen children were born. He preceded her in death.
She was a faithful churchman – and a devoted wife and mother. She believed in not sending he children but going with them to church. The example she lived day by day will ever be a goal for her family to strive to reach.
She was faithful to her church always present at every service, unless providentially hindered from being there, and say to it that the family group attended with her.
She is survived by seven children namely: Miss Birdie Aldridge, Kansas; Nelson and Jim Green, Jr., Chapel Hill; Rev. John H. Green, Fort Worth; Sterling Green, California; Mrs. Sallie Lewis, Houston; and Rev. Jesse Green, also of Houston, TX.
