Shirley Mae Green, 57


Shirley Mae Green, age 57, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, after a brief illness. A Celebration of Life was Sunday, July 17, at 1 p.m. at Mt. Gilead Missionary Baptist Church in Twin City with Pastor Jerry Armstrong officiating.

Shirley was born August, 3, 1964, to the late Mary Bell Green and Allen Ford. She was a devoted member of Mt. Gilead Missionary Baptist Church where she served faithfully on the usher ministry. Shirley was a native of Jefferson County and was known to everyone as “chicken” for her tiny and petite body structure. She took care of her family, cooked, cleaned, and babysat. Taking care of her family was always her main goal, especially her grandkids who were her pride and joy. Shirley was loving, caring, and always showed her family support during every event.

Ms. Green leaves to cherish her memories with her children, Timothy Green of Swainsboro, Jeremey Green of Wadley, and Traci Smith (Christopher) of Swainsboro; siblings, Jerry Green (Beverly) of Wadley, Terry Green of Swainsboro, and Linda Armstrong (Jerry) of Soperton; five grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives, and friends.

Mosley’s Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.
