A celebration of life service for Linda G. Green, 54, was held Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 12 p.m. at Brinson Hill Missionary Baptist Church of Wadley with Reverend Bennie Brinson presiding. Interment followed at Green Cemetery. She passed away January 27, 2020 at Doctors Hospital of Augusta.
Miss Linda G. Green was born the first of four children to Doris Green and the late James E. Green Jr. on June 22, 1965 in Emanuel County. At an early age, Green accepted Christ. She joined Piney Grove Missionary Baptist Church, where she was an usher and member of the Sunbeam and Youth Choirs. She enjoyed singing and serving in any capacity where needed. She was a member of the 1983 graduating class of Swainsboro High School. Later, she matriculated at Fort Valley State College, where she received a B.S. in mass communication.
Her career led her to The McDuffie Progress as a staff writer, United Methodist News Service as a news writer, South Carolina United Methodist Advocate as a reporter, and The Macon Courier as a reporter. She was recognized as an accomplished journalist and was a recipient of The Donn Doten Award of Excellence for Writing as well as the United Methodist News Service Communicator’s Top Award. The writing talent that God awarded Green allowed her to have wonderful, exciting, and ex- tensive travel experiences, both nationally and internationally. Through her work with the United Methodist News Service, she traveled across the United States and to multiple countries in the continent of Africa on many occasions.
She was an avid reader of novels and absolutely loved to come home to Cross-Green Community during the holidays to spend time with her immediate and extended family.
Survivors include her mother; three brothers, Staff Sgt. (Retired) James Durrell Green of Warner Robins, Dr. Andre’ Green (Bevley) of Saraland, Alabama, and Dr. Terry Green (LaCusia) of Fishers, Indiana; two nieces, Terryn and Lauren Green; two nephews, Caleb and Andre’ Jr. (A.J.) Green; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Pallbearers were David Cook Jr., David Harrison Jr., William P. Jackson Jr., Jonathan Strange, Royce Hall, Dr. George E. Harrison, Bruce Rogers Jr., and Michael Strange.
