Delores Branch Green affectionately known as “Dee” departed this life on Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was 92 years old. She was a native of Oakville LA, and the mother of Greater St. Peter Missionary Baptist Church of Oakville.
Delores was affectionately called “Maw- Maw” by her children and grandchildren; She was always giving advice on life and encouraging her children to stay together and love one another no matter what. She even continued to teach her daughters how to cook at an older age which resulted in a Recipe Book.
She was a very shy person but would let you know exactly what she was thinking. Her funny personality kept a smile on people faces. Everyone who came in contact with our Precious Jewel fell in love with her. She had a great sense of humor and enjoyed watching her favorite television shows; Law & Order, Hawaii Five O, Blue Blood and Chicago Fire. She especially loved the company of her family every Sunday at Momma’s house. Delores worked at Willow Wood and Metropolitan State School until her retirement. She was definitely a lover of plants.
