"Loving Mother, Grandmother & Great-Grandmother"

Gastonia, North Carolina, Mabel Sutton Greene, passed away peacefully on Monday, September 18, 2017 into the arms of her loving Lord.

She was 102 years old and lived a full, happy life. Her last 2 years were spent joyfully at Morningside in Gastonia where she was loved and cared for, but her heart will always be in the mountains of North Carolina. She was born in Jackson County on November 10, 1914 to Julius and Laura Sutton. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband, Reverend CH Greene; and a daughter Claudia Smith.

Mabel was active in the Baptist faith and churches in North Carolina and Washington alongside her late husband, Reverend CH Greene. Missions played a great role in her life and she served in Baptist Women’s groups and taught Sunday school for 75 years.

Mabel is survived by her son, Charles H. Greene, and his wife, Martha Womack Greene, of Gastonia, North Carolina; three grandchildren, Grant Kuykendall, of Clearwater, Florida, Charles (Chip) Greene, and his wife, Dawn Bumgardner Greene, of Gastonia and Julie Greene Knudson, and her husband, Ken, of Wellesley, Massachusetts; five great-grandchildren, Patrick and Parker Greene, of Gastonia, Cooper, Reese and Reagan Knudson, of Wellesley, Massachusetts; and many loved nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, September 25, 2016 in the Waynesville chapel of Wells Funeral Home, with Reverend Lloyd Fish officiating. Burial will follow at Garrett-Hillcrest Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 12:00 until 1:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
