Rocky Mount, NC
Michael Hill Greene was born in Ahoskie, North Carolina, July 18, 1952, and transitioned into eternal life at his home on Saturday, November 10, 2018. He was the son of the late Clarine Vaughan and Leroy Smith.
Raised by his adoptive mother, the late Dounia Taylor Greene in Ahoskie,NC, Mike was always in church, including Sunday school where his mother taught. He joined and attended Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in Ahoskie very early in life. For the
past eight years he was a member of the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of
the Apostolic Faith in Wilson, North Carolina. He absolutely enjoyed being
a member of this church and would often invite others.
Even though he was quiet and kept to himself most of the time, Mike always loved discussing and challenging his friends regarding the Bible. He was also dedicated to
watching sports and his favorite team - the Redskins, as well as watching
documentaries and the history channel.
Mike attended college at A&T State University, Greensboro NC and Elizabeth City State University, Elizabeth City, NC, where he majored in Sociology and Political Science. At ECSU he met his wife, Brenda, and together they had one daughter.
He was employed with Odom Correctional Institution for 20 years until he moved to Rocky Mount, NC. There he was employed by Merita Bakery and Security Forces before retiring.
He leaves to cherish his memories: One daughter, Shanya Greene of Richmond, VA; Five sisters, Deloris Gant of Aberdeen, MD; Covitis Skinner of Fayetteville, NC; Kathy Vaughan of Aberdeen, MD; Sondra Washington of Edgewood, MD; and Bertha King of Murfreesboro; four brothers, Donnell Vaughan of Tampa, FL; Haywood Vaughan of Edgewood, MD; Rufus Vaughan of Baltimore, MD; and Herbert Vinson of Aberdeen,
MD; Special cousins, Paul (Audrey), John and Gerald (Kathy) Moore, other
relatives and friends.
Special thanks to the Teresa Cotton, who always checked on Mike when his
health started to fail, as well as the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ of the
Apostolic Faith church family.

I want to send my deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Michael Hill Greene.
The bible tells us we can gain comfort from God, even during times of sorrow. We can pray to our heavenly father for help to cope with the sorrow felt from the death of a loved one.
By prayer and supplication, let your petitions be made known to God; and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6
The bible also promises that God “will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” (Revelation 21:4) How comforting and reassuring that is! May you find comfort by relying on our heavenly father and learning more about the blessings of God's kingdom.

I was sorry to read about the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection to come according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts chapter 24:15]. We find further hope at scriptures like [Isaiah 25:8] and [Revelations 21:3-5] which says in part that Jehovah God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, because God will swallow up death forever. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
My Sincere Condolences.
