Mavis Jane Green

WILMINGTON — Mavis Jane Green, 87, passed away Monday, July 26, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.

Jane was born Dec. 20, 1933, in Wilmington, daughter of the late Edward Arnold Orrell and Carrie Jane Wetherington Orrell.

Growing up, Jane loved going to the beach and bowling. She was on a bowling league with her husband, where she was a bowling champion, even scoring a perfect 300. Jane loved her family more than anything. They were her passion, more than any other hobby could be. She enjoyed watching them play sports, dancing, and getting everyone together during the holidays for big dinners. She had a heart of gold, a sense of humor unrivaled, and the most beautiful smile you have ever seen.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Marvin Claire Green and brother Johnny Orrell.

Surviving are her son, Edward Green, and his wife, Julie, and their children, Jack, Eddie, Adam, Brad, Erin and Robin; daughter, Kim Blanchard, and her husband, Billy, and their children, Jeremy, Molly and Bill; daughter, Bonnie Callahan, and her children, Kimberly and Michael. She was also the proud great-grandma to Sarah, Layla, Logan, Hootie, Cameron, Bella and Trace. She is also survived by her sisters, Shirley Orrell, Sylvia Stoudenmire, Bonnie Sue Burriss, Judy Barnette and Carolyn Haggins.

A graveside service will be held at 2 p.m., Thursday, July 29, in Oakdale Cemetery with the Rev. Larry Horrell officiating. The family will be receiving close friends and family at their home, 4606 Tall Tree Lane, following the funeral.
