On Monday, April 4, 2022, Mrs. Florence L. Green of 402-D Ridgeview LN., Petersburg, VA entered eternal rest and peace at Wonder City Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Hopewell, VA following a brief period of illness. She was born in Petersburg, VA to the late F. Aubry and Lecie V. Clayton.
Mrs. Green was educated in the Petersburg Public school system. She married the late Otis Green, and they travelled to various locations before settling down in the Hampton/Newport News area until her family saw fit for her to return to Petersburg to be near family.
She loved to play BINGO where you could find her most days if you looked for her and shopping. She loved her family. Although, she did not have any children of her own she would sit with “her children” she adopted and was well loved by them all.
Mrs. Green was preceded by in death by her siblings, Annie Clayton, Lenora Bowles, Thelma Seward, Madelyn Simms, Eugene Clayton, Ernest Clayton, and Alyson Clayton, well as other family members.
She leaves to cherish her memories, three nieces, Mary (Pigeon)Phillips, and Betty Hill of Petersburg, VA; and Gail Robinson, Lawrenceville, GA; and two nephews, E. Butch Seward (Debra) San Antonio, TX, and Stanley Simms (Mary) Chesterfield, VA. And a host of great nieces and nephews, devoted, Gwendolyn Lewis, Petersburg, VA; Aubrey Phillips (Maria) Prince George, VA, Ernest Phillips (Sarah) Richmond, VA; Kelly Phillips, Suitland MD and Orlando Phillips, Oakland, VA., and many others, too many to name. She will be missed by them all.
