In Loving
Memory

Nicole I. Greene

Dec. 15, 1926 – Feb. 19, 2021

Mavis “Nicole” Ileanee Fenty was born December 15, 1926 to the late Theo Fenty in Georgetown, British Guiana. She was raised by her late aunt, Ms. Alice Allen, and educated under the British Monarchy.

In 1944, she met her future husband, Cecil Percival Greene at St. Georges Cathedral where they were both members of the church.

After a period of courtship, they married on May 28, 1949 enjoying a lavish wedding ceremony.

The couple departed to London, England in 1956, and then later in 1965 to the United States. Both moves were in the pursuit of furthering their education, and searching for new career opportunities.

Once in America, they established residence in New York, Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia.  In Virginia, Nicole established herself as a Medical Analyst with Fairfax (INOVA) Hospital in Fairfax, VA for more than 20 years.

Even while working, Nicole always found time to put family first by being available for the children’s extracurricular activities, and pursuing her personal development by attending adult education classes.

Her interests also included reading, knitting, camping, and she was an enthusiastic crossword puzzle solver.

Nicole leaves behind a strong legacy that highlighted her love for family, friends, and a thirst for knowledge.

Known as “Mom” to all who know and love her.  Her smile and grace made it so she never met a stranger. She brought joy and life that resonated through to anyone who met her. She had a life-long devotion to her Anglican faith.

Nicole is preceded in death by her daughter, Donna Greene, and two sisters, Elaine Fenty, and Doreen Christopher. She will be greatly missed by her husband of 72 years, Cecil Greene, her sons, Cecil Lindon Greene (Denise), Colin Anthony Greene (Stacey), and daughter, Michaelann Greene-Russell (Larry); seven grandchildren to include, Nichole Honore (Keith), Michael Greene, Shane Greene, Kingsley Greene-Russell, Ayden Greene, Bryce Greene, and Chance Greene; three great-grandchildren, Lionniel Greene-Sarubbi, Kyle Honore, and Kameron Honore.

Also left to cherish her memory, two sisters, Thelma Tappin, and Esme Fenty, in addition to a former daughter in law, Karen Greene.  She will additionally be missed by a host of loving nieces and nephews, family, and friends.  A life well lived.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.

    To Uncle Cecil and the entire Greene & Honore family,  I would like to extend our deepest condolences to all of you for the loss of your dear Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great grandmother.
    She was a dear Sister to my mother Doreen, and her other siblings Alfred, & Elaine desceesed also Thelma, Elaine and (Roy living in Guyana).Auntie Mavis always showed kindness and generosity,  She will be dearly missed by all who she touched over her many years. Right now we are all feeling this deep sense of loss, but we can take comfort in Jesus’ promise; that, just as the Father raises the dead up,and  makes them alive, so the Son also makes those alive whom he wants to. Do not marvel at this because the hour is coming which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out. John 5:21, 28, 29  As we grief for the loss of Aunt Mavis, God’s holy spirit or active force, can equip all of us but especially the immediate family with power beyond what is normal – to go from  one day to the next. (2Corinthians 4:7).
    Warm love to all of you. Please stay safe.

    Please accept condolences from Lloyd and Nell Jonas.

    We first met Mavis when Cecil brought her to visit us in Barbados many years ago. Our second meeting was on a cruise in celebration of Leon and Cicely Jonas’ 50th wedding anniversary. Our last meeting was on the sad occasion of Cicely’s death in Florida.

    Mavis was a lady with a quiet manner, who made conversation easily and always with a ready smile.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with Cecil as Mavis now rests in peace.

    In Loving Memory of our; sister Mavis (Nicole) her Nieces, Nephews, and Cousins on this side.
    There is no beginning or end to God’s Love.

    Reflecting on a life lived through Joys, and Challenges of a fractured family upbringing, there was much to be thankful for. As adulthood brought Mavis a loving and caring husband (Cecil) with children, grandchildren, and great grands. What a blessing.

    As we transition this life, we look forward for that time when we shall meet again.
    Rest in peace my dear sister in the Loving Arms of our Lord and Savour Jesus Christ.
    Thelma and others.

      Thank you so much. We all love you and hope that we can see each other soon,

      Love,

      Michael
