Interment Information


Ronald Lee Green, better known as “Ronnie,” was born August 11, 1954 in Florence, South Carolina, and departed this life on August 7, 2017. Margaret H. Green was born on June 29, 1937, in Newport News, Virginia and departed this life on August 8, 2017. Both have now transitioned to be with their Lord and Savior. Margaret and Ronnie were predeceased by Charlie Green, Jr. (husband and father), Deborah and Karen (daughters and sisters), and Ronald and Michael (sons and brothers). Margaret loved people and was quite instrumental in visiting and assisting the sick and bereaved. Before her failing health, she was very active in her church by serving on the Women’s Usher Board, Nursing Department and variety of other auxiliaries. Ronald served as a custodial supervisor in the Norfolk Public Schools System. He served faithfully and untiringly for 33 years before training on disability. Both Margaret and Ronald joined the New Hope Church of God in Christ under the leadership of the late Bishop Herman Clark, Sr. It was no secret about the pride and special joy Margaret had in babysitting her grandchildren: Brandon, Sheena and Isaac. She looked forward to their visits and spoiled them “rotten” even when the grandchildren became adults, the babysitting days did not stop. Sheena would bring her two children, Skylar and Christian over so that grandmother could further indulge in spoiling them. Ronnie, on the other hand, was known as “Mr. Santa Claus” to Brandon, Sheena and Isaac. Whatever they needed or wanted, Ronnie would quickly oblige. The overwhelming giving and love triggered down to the great niece and nephew. Ironically, Margaret and Ronnie began to have failing health around the same time to the extent that Margaret could no longer drive and visit others and Ronnie was confined to his home. But, isn’t it good to know that the Lord always has a “ram in the bush.” This ram was none other than the son and brother, Zeke. Although Zeke was working two jobs, he visited his mother when she was in the hospital and nursing home daily. Bringing her cookies and chips because they were her favorite snacks. Zeke would also visit Ronnie, bringing him groceries and seeing that he got everything he wanted. Without hesitation, Zeke would get up anytime, late evenings or early mornings to tend to his needs. Now, Zeke’s immediate family has gone on to glory but the Lord has blessed him with supportive relatives, friends, and co-workers. To God be the glory.

Nicole Im very sorry for your loss. Losing loved ones is heartbreaking. Know that God heals the broken-hearted, Psalm 147:3. He promises to bring death to nothing, 1 Corinthians 15:26. There shall be a resurrection, Acts 24:15
