Obituaries » Regina G. Green
Regina Georgette Green was born on September 23,1957, in Portsmouth, Virginia to the late George Edward Green and the late Irene Garie Green. She was raised in Virginia until the family relocated to Washington, DC in 1961.
Regina matriculated through McFarland Junior High School and Woodrow Wilson Senior High School in Washington, DC. She became a mother to two beautiful children; Angel and Gordon Jr. She studied and obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of the District of Columbia. She became a teacher and taught at local schools until she changed careers. In 1985, she began her career with The United States Postal Service. Regina served twenty-five years as a City Carrier in Washington, DC while also serving in the NALC Union as a Shop Steward. She took great pride in her work and helping others. She also enjoyed sports, dancing, shopping, and playing card games. Her greatest joy, however, was spending quality time with her family and friends.
Regina was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend whom selflessly gave of herself to everyone. She was a blessing to the earth for almost six decades. Regina’s grandchildren meant the world to her. Her face always lit up whenever she saw them and she would have the biggest smile. Regina loved the Lord and was a member of Spirit of Faith Christian Center. We take comfort in knowing that she joins her mother/best friend in heaven watching over us all and rooting on their Washington sports teams. She will never be forgotten but forever missed.
Regina’s cherished legacy lives on in her son, Gordon Barksdale Jr.; daughter Angel Newman, son in law Marcel Newman, her grandchildren Marcel Jr. and Asia Newman, siblings Deborah Sutton, George Green Jr, Cynthia Carr (Alvin), Michael Green, Arthur “Andre” Green, Donnell Green (Sandra) and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and valued friends.
(John 14:1-4 NIV)
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.”
