I am so sad that Aunt Sippy is no longer with us but I know that she is reunited with Uncle Carl now. They always made a point to show up for me. I especially remember that they came to visit me the night I graduated high school and they came to the hospital after I had Sadie. It meant so much to me for them to be there. I’m praying for you all and sending my love.

Sippie Carver Green


Mrs. Sippie Carver Green, 87, of Fernandina Beach passed away Saturday, July 8, 2023 at the Warner Center for Caring.

Mrs. Green was born on the Florida side of the St. Mary’s River at Moniac, GA and was a daughter of the late Ralph and Verdie Rhoden Carver. She was always proud of her upbringing in that rural area and would talk about being raised on the bottom side of the Okefenokee Swamp.

She married Carl L. Green and they made their home in St. George, GA for a short time. Nearly 72 years ago, they moved to Fernandina Beach and made their home here, ever since. While Mr. Green made his career at Container Corporation, Mrs. Green made her career as a loving and caring wife and mother. Over the years, their house was at least a part-time home for many of the neighborhood kids. That open and welcoming home would be a tradition which would continue for all of her life.

Whether it was feeding some of the Pirates football team on Friday afternoon before a game, inviting whoever was there to sit at the table and eat or just simply being the kind of place young or old, who were not family, could just hang around and be comfortable, she provided that kind of loving place for many. For many she was and always will be known as Granny Green.

Her cooking was always good but her biscuits were legendary. No matter the time of day, some of the friends of her children often timed things “just right” to be at the Green home when the biscuits were coming out of the oven.

Much of the reason for all of the “coming and going” at her home was her simple way of loving with an open heart. It was said you could see her heart through the love in her eyes. Her caring ways provided support for not only her family but for many of those part-time family members who always found a place at her home. Her loving ways extended beyond the neighborhood kids and friends of her children. Mrs. Green was known as a “baby whisperer”. She had the unique ability to take any infant who was upset and crying and be able to talk to them in her special way and quickly calm the child down.

In addition to her husband, who passed away in 2014, she was predeceased by a sister, Pauline O’Neal in 2021 and a granddaughter, Rachael Green, in 2022.

She leaves behind her three children, Ted Green, Ralph (Cathy) Green, of Fernandina Beach and Carlene (Mike) O’Kelley of Huntingtown, MD; two grandchildren, Raleigh (Emily) Green and Connor (Lizzie) Green; four great-grandchildren, who were the light of her life, Forrest, Major, Baron and Titan; as well as very large extended family of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, July 12, 2023 at Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors from 5:00 until 7:00 PM.

Graveside funeral services will be held Thursday, July 13, 2023 at 11:00 AM at Conner-Green Cemetery in western Nassau County. Pastor James Conner will officiate.

The family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to both the ICU staff of Baptist Medical Center, Nassau and the staff of the Warner Center for Caring.

Mrs. Green’s family asks she be remembered with donations to Community Hospice of Northeast Florida, The Warner Center for Caring.
