Elder Marion Green
June 6, 1916 – February 23, 2015

It is with heavy hearts that Bishop Charles E. Blake and West Angeles Church announce the passing of Assistant Pastor Emeritus Elder Marion Green.

This great soldier transitioned this morning to join his beloved wife Lady Celestine Green and the Church Triumphant.

For over 40 years, Elder Green stood by the side of Bishop Blake in unwavering support, leadership, strength, grace and humility. He found his purpose in God and completed his assignment with integrity and dedication.

As a decorated veteran of World War II, Elder Green brought the same discipline and loyalty to his callings as Minister of The Gospel, husband, father, friend and staff member.

We lift up the entire Green family as they both mourn and celebrate their beloved Patriarch.

We honor this Mighty Man of Valor for his service to and for the Body of Christ!

Final arrangements are as follows:

Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 11:00AM in the West Angeles Church North Campus  Sanctuary,

3045 Crenshaw Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90016.


Bishop Charles E. and Lady Mae L. Blake
West Angeles Church of God in Christ

    God bless you Elder Green! You are truly a remarkable man of God. It was a blessing to meet you over 30 years ago when my daughter and I attended our new members orientation at West Angeles COGIC. Your warm spirit assured me that I had made the correct decision to become a member. You will never be forgotten and will be sorely missed. May you rest in eternal peace with God!

    Pastor Green and Mother Green were truly a god send to me and my children. We have a Oklahoma tie , but when I moved to California in the late 80’s a divorcee with 4 small children going through a very difficult time, they didnt know me from Adam.:).
    But the Greens helped me with monies, appliances, antique furniture, rides and baby sitting. They made me feel so loved. Pastor Green shared with my 3 Sons about his military days which they cherish.
    Mother Green shared with me about being a virtous women, she loved my daughter Krystal which she called Christy. They were there until I remarried and frequently checked on us.
    I feel my life has been fuller knowing such a loving family.
    My love and prayers go out to the entire Green family and West Angeles Church.
    From Monica Gibbs and my 4 children: Richard, Allan, Alexis, and Krystal Green.
