Alma Moton Greene

July 7, 1930 — April 24, 2017

When God reached down, and collected her soul; she reached up knowing, she had to go, slipping away peacefully, her body remained; one final look back, she smiled! Early Monday morning, April 24, 2017 our heavenly father looked down and saw that one of his children had grown tired in her earthly journey, and called her home. Alma Moton Greene is the daughter of Georgia Moton Shivers. Alma was born July 7, 1930 in Isle of Wight County. She attended Isle of Wight Public School.
