April 28, 1948 - July 15, 2020
Billie Joyce Green was born on April 28, 1948 in Gunnison, Mississippi to Clinton Jordan Sr. and Willie B. Jordan. In 1953, he moved his family to Chicago, Illinois. It was there that Billie attended Jenner Elementary and Cooley Upper Chance Grade Center, later attending Harlan High School as well as John Marshall High School. In October 1966, Billie gave birth to her first-born daughter Jocelyne. She began her career as a nursing care provider, working at Mt. Sinai Hospital for over 18 years. It was there that she met Michael D. Green, and they wedded in July 1977. In that union two children were born, Michelle and Eric. Billie spent the next few years providing care at Ingalls Memorial Hospital and St. James Hospital, until she retired in 2004. After her retirement, Billie became the most loving and doting grandmother to her seven grandchildren, whom she loved very dearly. If she wasn’t doing that, you can find her reading her most favorite romance or mystery novel, or on the nearest dance floor stepping (with that one leg up and finger-pointing) or jamming to some house music. On July 15, 2020, God called Billie home. She is preceded in death by her father Clinton Jordan Sr. and four brothers Barry Jordan, James Jordan, Larry Jordan, and Clinton Jordan Jr. She leaves behind to cherish her memories, her mother, Willie B. Jordan; three sisters Ester Neal (Calvin), Wilmarie Jordan, and Joan Simpson; one brother Anthony Jordan; three children Jocelyne Wright (Wilfred), Michelle Green, and Eric Green (Crystal); seven grandchildren Kaitlyn Wright, Indiyah Green, Zipporah Green, Ivy Green, Eric Green Jr., Faith Green, and Leila Holcomb; a special niece/daughter Tabitha Kumar (Adam); and a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
