Obituary

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the Heaven; a time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck up that which is planted.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

A Time to Be Born: Isaac Greene was born in Fort Gaines, Georgia on May 24, 1939. He was the eighth child born to the late Dorsey and Henrietta Lee Greene.

Study to Show Thyself Approved: Isaac received his early education in Dade County Public Schools. He graduated from Miami Northwestern Senior High School in 1957. After graduation, he continued his education at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama.

A Time to Love: Always seeking to improve himself, Isaac moved to Atlanta, Georgia in 1979. It was there that he met and married the love of his life Fannie Mae Wilkes. From a previous marriage to Doris Cherry, four children were born: Lisa, Valencia, Isaac, Jr., and Yolanda.

A Time to Serve: Isaac joined St. Philip A.M.E. Church in 1979. At St. Philip, he was a faithful and loyal steward and served on the Male Usher Board. In 2000, he received The Faithful Servant Award for 20 years of service as an Usher. Isaac was self-employed as a General Contractor.

A Time to Rejoice: After many years of declining health, Isaac Greene left his earthly tabernacle for his Heavenly home on July 6, 2006. He was preceded in death by his daughter Lisa.

In life we all have a purpose According to God’s perfect will. Some of us try so hard to perfect it, While others appear to be sitting still. Whether your job is to share a laugh, a smile, or a cry There is no doubt that you let any opportunities pass you by They say that your job has lived within you since you were a little boy. God’s job for you fit so perfect, It was the wonderful gift of joy. You had the power to turn frowns to smiles and brighten anyone’s day, For you always seemed to tickle our hearts In a very special way. So it’s time to give up the job now, all of your work is done, You fought hard to remain faithful, and a victory is well won.

Uncle Isaac, this is your official certificate of completion Dedicated with honor to a strong, humble, and loving employee from God Faithful Servant, Inc.
