Lorienzer Green

May 18, 1927 ~ March 26, 2020 (age 92)


Lorienzer Green, life long resident of Lafayette county and son of the late Ira Green, Sr. and Mable Stockard Green, was born on May 18, 1927. As a young man, Loriener accepted his calling into the ministry and became known as Rev. Green.

Rev. Green accepted Christ at an early age at St. John Missionary Baptist Church and remained a member there until his marriage to Emma Charline when he then united with her at Beverly United Methodist Church. Later after his calling into the ministry, he joined the West Springhill Missionary Baptist Church and was a active member there until his health hindered his attendance. Even then, he continued his worship and praise in his home. He received his early childhood education in the county school of the community. And grew up to become a self trained, skilled mechanic.

Rev. Green and Emma Charline Green were the proud parents of nine wonderful children. Emma Charline preceded him in death. Rev. Green loved doing what the Lord had ordained him to do and that was, to preach God's word. He loved his church, his grandchildren, mowing the grass, wearing his sharp suits and driving his pickup truck. 

Rev. Lorienzer Green labored hard and long and the Lord said, "Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of the Lord (Matt: 25:21 KJV). And early Thursday morning, March 26, 2020, he enter into rest to receive the joy of the Lord.

Please keep his family in your prayers; his children: Willie M. Booker, Barbara Adams, Carolyn Green, and Gwendolyn Green all of Oxford MS, Peggy (Willie) Adams of Beloit WI, and Bernice (Eric) Mathis-Carter of Milwaukee WI; Clyde (Addie) Green and Timothy Green of Oxford MS; Lorienzer (Sheryl) Green, Jr. of Taylor MS, Jerry (Maudie) Green of South Bend IN and Herbert Mathis of Milwaukee WI; he leaves his sister: Mable Pettis, Oxford MS; and a host of grand, and great grand children along with many nieces, nephews, cousin, other relatives and friends.

Please keep his family in your prayers.
