Rebecca "Becky" Wilson Greene


April 12, 1943 ~ July 25, 2023

Born in: Polk Co., NC
Resided in: Candler, NC

Rebecca “Becky” Wilson Greene passed away on July due to complications from Alzheimer’s Disease.

Becky was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald Greene, her parents, Reuben and Gurlia Wilson and her brother, George Wilson.

Becky is survived by her daughter, Pam Dixon, her son Eric Greene, Pam’s son Matthew and his wife Hayley and their daughter Emma Rebecca Dixon. She also leaves behind two faithful, loving and devoted sisters, Nelda Pace (Harold), Sue Ballard and many loved nieces, nephews and cousins. She will also be remembered by her long-time friends from Bent Creek Baptist Church, Pole Creek Baptist Church, Biltmore Baptist Church and the friends she made at different work places throughout her life.

Becky grew up in the apple country of Edneyville, NC, and spent much of her humble childhood working hard next to her father, mother, sisters and brother George. Becky started singing gospel music at a young age and continued this ministry throughout her life.

Proverbs 31 best describes the person that was Becky as she lived her life full of faith, purity of heart, charity, kindness and always putting the needs of others above herself. The Becky you met or heard sing, was the Becky she was at home and with her family. Becky was full of life and always had a spirit about her that others wanted to be around. Becky loved to work in her yard, feed the squirrels and birds, read, sew, keep a clean house, and cook for her family, especially for her grandson Matt. Her Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes were the best ever.

She will be greatly missed by who all who knew her, but we will all take comfort in knowing that she is in place where she is whole and can look out for us from above, the same as she did everyday of her life here on earth.

A receiving of friends will occur at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, July 28 at Groce Funeral Home on Patton Avenue in Asheville, with a funeral service to follow at 2:00 p.m. and burial afterwards at Pisgah View Memorial Park in Candler, NC.

Memories Timeline


  1. Remembering Becky from Telco at Square D. She was always very conscientious and helpful to our Square D Family. My condolences to her family and friends.

  2. I remember the Greenes from many places but my last memories of Becky and Gerald were seeing them almost every week in the hallway at Biltmore Church as they were leaving their Sunday School Connect group each Sunday. May God pour His peace and comfort over all of you until the day of that great reunion in Heaven.

  3. Becky was a great friend to us. We had good times together. She will be missed. I know she is up there singing and meeting her Savior.

  4. Becky was one of my favorite people growing up. My dad played bass for the trio at Bent Creek and I loved to hear her sing. She was the real deal! My dad thought the world of her. I am sure they are rejoicing together today!

  5. Sending my love and Condolences. It looks like our mamas might need to meet in heaven. She sounds like a wonderful woman, and I know she will live on through her beautiful family.

  6. It has been a while since I saw Becky. Larry and I loved to listen to her sing with the band and trio. Those are precious memories.
    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  7. Becky had the sweetest personality and smile. Her singing was beautiful. Many times, she sang “I fell on my knees and cried Holy” . At Pole Creek. Always made you cry, shout or have chills. Her voice was beautiful.
    Praying for family. Carolyn Stamey

  8. Becky and her family were our neighbors on Berry Hill Dr.
    Becky was a wonder person. I loved to hear her sing,” I fell on my knees and cried holy” We had lunch with her and Gerald not long before she got sick. I have so many of her albums. I think everyone of them. Pam, Eric, and Matthew, we love you and are here for you. Matthew, she really loved you and told how much joy you gave her.

  9. Our prayers and thoughts are with the family at this time. May God bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time in your life.

  10. Sending my love to the family. What a blessed time being with Becky while we were friends. Loving God and making music with my friend.
