Della Mae Green went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Wednesday, January 8, 2020. She was born in Savannah, GA to the late John Henry and Nettie Smart on May 16, 1933, and is predeceased by her children Joann Franklin and Earnest Green Jr., siblings Henry Lee “Bo” Smart, Hattie Mae Smart Saussey, Birdell “Bea” Bailey, David Smart, Jimmy Lee Smart, Juanita “Tootsie” Smart, Victoria Morris and John Willie.

Della was happily married to the love of her life, Earnest “Bubba” Green in 1950, and remained married for 68 years. She was fortunate and blessed to have lived in many different countries; North Africa for 4 years, Oxford, England for 3 years, Morón, Spain for 3 years, Wiesbaden, Germany for 4 years and Merced, California for 5 years. The United States Air Force made it possible to have their four children travel with them, and Della often said how lucky she and her family was for all of the blessings God gave them.

Della graduated from Beach High School in Savannah, GA, and was active at First Calvary Baptist Church as a member of usher board #3 where she served for 33 years. She loved travelling on cruises, taking bus trips to the casino, watching CNN and tennis, and making puzzles.

Her memory will be cherished by her husband, Earnest “ Bubba” Green, children Phyllis Bellamy of Fort Washington, MD and Abhi Ahmadadeen of Chesapeake, VA, aunt Laura Walker of Savannah, GA, grandchildren, great grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. - 2 Timothy 4:7
