Joan Elizabeth “Lil bit” Green, 64, went to be with the Lord Friday, May 10, 2019. Joan dedicated 25 years of service to the City of Norfolk, where she retired from in 2004 with numerous accolades.
During her retirement, Joan enjoyed being an active member at St. Paul’s CME Church in Norfolk, where she was on the usher and steward boards and the ILA women’s auxiliary. When Joan was not participating in church events, you could find her enjoying some of her favorite hobbies like fishing and playing games like slot machines, keno and other card games.
Left to cherish Joan’s memory are her mother, Willie Beatrice Sherrod; sons, Ricos Green (Stephanie), Tion Langley and Dion Langley; sisters, H. Dianne Berry (Ted), Rosa L. Rosser-Ridley (Roland), Regina Darden (Marshall) and Cynthia Harris; brothers, Gregory L. Rosser, Robert Rosser (Janet), David Rosser (Rosilyn), Arnold Sherrod (Shawna) and William “Runt” Jones (Megan). Joan will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren, Isaah and Sierra Green, Stephan and Shawn Nicholson and Tion Langley II; and Aunt Mildred Moorehead, who was more like a sister than her friend. Joan will also be remembered by a host of nieces and nephews, friends and a large extended family.
Joan was preceded in death by her loving husband, Clarence Green Jr.; father, Lee Rosser; sister, Mamie Rosser-Woods; and brother, Reginald Rosser.
