Obituary

Jacob Moses Green Jr was born on March 17th, 1930 in Sylvania, GA to Jacob Green Sr and Stella Mae Green (affectionately known as Nana). Jacob spent his younger years in Savannah, a place near and dear to his heart and where he considered home. He attended and graduated from Beach High School. While there, he met the love of his life Betty Anne    Ferrebee. After years of courting, the high school sweethearts embarked on their new adventure of marriage on November 23, 1953.

Shortly after marrying, the newly weds relocated to New York City, where they would spend the next 40+ years creating a life filled with love, humor and their greatest   achievements: three daughters Vanessa, Jacqueline, and Alanda. Jacob’s love of Jazz music led him to train as a saxophonist with some of the greatest names in Jazz. He played in world renowned Jazz clubs all over New York City and was a welcome performer at churches to enhance praise and worship services.

Jacob spent over 30 years as a Buyer at Ward Textile Company after serving in the United States Army during the Korean War. He was a member of Jonesville Baptist Church.

In 1994, Jacob and Betty returned to their roots in    Savannah, GA. They would enjoy their retired life fishing the marshlands, spending time with family, enjoying long walks around their favorite Lake Mayor, and even working during the 1996 Olympics. Jacob also found the time to rekindle his love of Jazz music by enrolling into the Arts Program at Savannah  State University at the age of 78.

In 2007, Betty transitioned into the next phase of her eternal life. Not a day went by that Jacob did not miss his love, proving that the love they shared defied all rules of time and space.

On May 30th, 2021, Jacob reunited with his love and  many other cherished and loved friends and family members.

His legacy will be forever cherished and preserved by his loved ones: the Love of his Life Betty Anne Green (transitioned), his sister Margaret Daniels (transitioned) and brother Bubba Green (transitioned), his daughters, Vanessa  Stirling (son-in-law Douglas), Jacqueline Dingle, and Alanda Green, his grandchildren Joshua Stirling (transitioned), Dominique Dingle, Serita Stirling, Terrance Dingle, and Alanda Micquel Green, his great grand children Aniah Carter and Alani Carter, and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and family that will carry him in their hearts until they meet again.
