Mabel Greene, 86, a 57-year Roseville resident, passed away Feb. 10, 2014 at home surrounded by her family. Mrs. Greene was the only child born to coal-miner Henry and his wife Alice on November 5 1927 in Greasy Creek Kentucky. She met and married Samuel H. Greene in Virginia. Together they migrated to the Detroit area where they raised their sons. Mabel painted model trains at Lionel Trains in Chesterfield Township for 9 years and also worked at TRAVCO, a van conversion company. Mabel was a devout member for 57 years of Warren Woods Baptist Church. Her family said she "…was a very caring and hard working person with never an unkind word to others. She was very much a lady. Although she was small in stature, her heart was enormous and her love of family immeasurable. She was always doing for others." One favorite memory mentioned by her sons was camping trips to Algonac State Park. She would drive her sons there, return home to pick up her husband after he finished work and bring him back to the campsite to be together.
Mrs. Greene is survived by her sons, Tim (Theresa) Greene, Roger (Karen) Greene, Ronald (Nancy) Greene, and Keith (Judy) Greene; grandchildren, Joshua (Sarah), Christopher, Courtney, Kurtis, Morgan and Keith; great-grandchildren, Asher, and Lucas. Mabel was pre-deceased by her husband Samuel H. and infant son, Richard. Funeral Saturday, 11:00 a.m. at Kaul Funeral Home – 35201 Garfield (one block north of 15 Mile Road) Clinton Township. Friends may visit Friday, 4:00 – 9:00 p.m.
