Obituary for MANDER LEE GREEN

Mother Mander Lee Green was born on February 23, 1918, in Springfield, SC to the late John Henry Wise and Bertha Tobin. She had 2 brothers; Leroy and Odom, and 1 sister. All have preceded her in death.

Mother Mander as she was often called, received her early childhood education in Springfield, SC. She relocated to Washington, DC in 1941. While living with Elder & Sister Jacob Green, she met Asberry Green and on April 12th 1946, she was united in Holy Matrimony. They were blessed with one daughter , Queen (aka Queenie).

In 1954, before the baptism pool was placed in the church at Bethel, she was baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ at The Way of the Cross Church of Christ, 4th & Virginia Avenue , SE, by the late Elder Bridges. She received the gift of the Holy Ghost shortly after being baptized. She joined the Bethel Way of the Cross Church and was a member for 29 years. She was a faithful member of the True Heart Singers, the Missionary Band, Senior Choir, Faithful Five and the Helping Hands committee.

In 1983, after a discussion with her Pastor, she moved her membership to the Mother Church. Since moving there, she continued to work out her soul salvation . She was a member of the Radio Broadcast; the Way of the Cross Chorus; Pastor's Aide; Pastor's Choir; Senior Choir; the Women's ministry and the Golden Age ministry. She also served as the National Missionary Treasurer under the administration of Mother Sadie Williams and as the Senior Missionary Chaplain. She was a faithful worker at The Way of the Cross Church.

Mother Mander worked as a domestic engineer for most of her working years . In doing so she raised two families: The Blaine Family, Joel Shapiro (Carol), Raquel Shapiro and Elana Shapiro-Ashley. She was an avid fisher and enjoyed fishing with her son-in-law Vernon , Frances Spriggs, and Shirley Howard. She loved fishing at her Pastor's house. During the last fishing tournament , she received the prize for catching the largest fish as well as the most fish.

She also raised many children until her daughter Queenie married and started her family . Mother Mander decided that no one could take better care of her grandchildren than she could. In later years, she became a foster grandparent and raised over 21 young boys. The first foster child to enter her home at the age of 2 was Charlie Williams. Over the years, "EB" Bradshaw, Calvin Douglas, Leonard & Dwayne Hall were also fostered under her care and kept in touch with her on a regular basis.

Mother Mander has lived through 5 generations. She leaves to cherish her memories, her one and only daughter: Queenie (Vernon Sr.); (5) grandchildren: Vernon Jr., Brian, Ricardo, Charlie
& Ephonia (Albert); (18) Great grandchildren : Jermaine (Continia), Vernon Ill, Tanika, LaTia (Reginald), Rhonda, Brittany , Devonte, Spencer, Sade, Joshua , Kayla, Kevin, Devin, Madison, Kaleemah, Brain Langford and Ronald Green; (12) Great-great grandchildren: Skylar, Alexus, Sa'mara, La'mira, ZaVion, JayDen, Jahsi, Micah, Nina, Sidney, Seth and Quaron; a host of God-children, nieces & nephews.
