Moss McGreger Green, 94, of Bruce departed from this world on June 27, 2020, at the Bruce Community Living Center. Born on March 9, 1926, Moss was a daughter to the late Clarence Newton McGreger and Maudie Murphree McGreger.

Moss, a lifelong resident of the Rocky Mount Community, married the love her life, Winfred Green, on June 20, 1942, in Bruce. The couple spent a timeless 66 years together abounding with two children and decades of memories. She was a woman with much determination and intelligence who spent her days as a self-taught homemaker. While she was looking after her family, Moss developed a love for cooking, sewing, and working in her yard; practices she continued as long as she was able. With an ear for music, Moss developed a passion for melodies and rhythm while attending singing schools as a child. She used the talent the Lord gifted her with every Sunday morning as the Music Director at Rocky Mount Baptist Church.   Moss not only praised the Lord with her piano skills, but she also educated people about the Lord as a Sunday School Teacher. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. Moss did not simply pass away, she held in her soul the cure to death, a relationship with Jesus.
