Martha (Wright) Greene, 77 of Queens, New York received her peaceful marching order on May 24, 2021. Martha did not fuss or fight as she knew her time had come. She was born on July 21, 1943 in Orangeburg County, in Eutawville, South Carolina to the late Francis and Adell Wright.
Martha was educated in the public school in Holly Hill, South Carolina. During her school years she met the love of her life, the late George Greene Sr. George and Martha moved to Queens, NY in 1963, where she resided until her death. She committed her life to the Lord as a young woman. Martha had several nicknames, but the name that stuck with her was “Turk”. Turk was kind and compassionate to all she met. Turk’s favorite past-time was laughing and joking with family and close friends. Martha worked several years as a home attendant for those in need until the passing of her husband, and then she took over as the Chief Operating Officer for George’s Tire Shop.
