Willa Mae Greene

May 12, 1938 — June 15, 2022

On Wednesday, June 15, 2022, Willa Mae Greene, age 84, a beautiful and kind lady who was a blessing to everyone that knew her, entered into her Glorious Heavenly home.
Mae was born May 12, 1938 in Jackson County to the late Cornelius Brooks and the late Leola Estes Brooks.
She retired from Buster Brown Textiles in Sylva and was a Charter Member of Mt Zion Baptist Church, where she was clerk for many years. Mae's strength and courage was an example for each of us to follow as she never gave up in her fight against heart failure. Let us think of Mae and remember that those we love can never be more than a thought away for as long as there's a memory they will live in our hearts to stay. 
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers; Bobby and Billy Brooks and baby sister Elenora Brooks.

Two Daughters; Karen Greene of Whittier, NC and Kerri Abbott (Gary) of Franklin, TN
Two Grandchildren; Marissa Abbott of Atlanta, GA and Ryan Abbott of Nashville, TN
and a multitude of dear friends, and Clyde's family which were like her own.
