Lalla Green Templin - Greenwood
|Lalla Green Templin, 98, of Greenwood, widow of Robert LeRoy Templin, passed away Wednesday, October 3, 2018.|
Born April 22, 1920, in Sumter, she was a daughter of the late John Thompson Green and Annie Rembert Green.
Known to her family and friends as giving, thoughtful, and dedicated, Lalla was also a hard worker, fastidious in completing anything she set out to accomplish, strong-willed, and clever- with a notable quick wit. Lalla was also very outgoing and enjoyed making and nurturing many friendships throughout her life. Despite her out-going nature, one of her most beloved pastimes was quiet hours spent gardening.
A devoted wife and mother and a doting grandmother, she loved spending time visiting with family and doing special things for them. Her Saturday morning ritual was to prepare meals that she later delivered to those less fortunate. She also had a gift for visiting with others and being present during their times of need, with a special focus on providing emotional support to survivors of heart attacks.
Mrs. Templin was a member of Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church in Camden and Shandon United Methodist Church in Columbia, where she served on the Board. She and her husband joined First Presbyterian Church upon moving to Greenwood in 2000 and she later joined Westminster Presbyterian to be with her daughter and son-in-law.
She was the last living member of her immediate family, having been predeceased by her two brothers, Henry Davis Green and John Thompson Green, Jr. and two sisters, Mary Green Witherspoon and Anne Green Watson.
Surviving are a daughter, Mary Anne Wilson and her husband, Richard, of Greenwood; a son, Robert Davisson Templin of North Myrtle Beach, SC; four grandchildren, Ben Templin Rigby (Jennifer) of Wilmington, NC, Betsey Rigby Blimline of Cumming, GA, Dave Templin of Westminster, SC, and Margaret Templin Smith (Shawn) of Greenville, SC; and five great grandchildren, Sarah Cameron and Eliza Rigby of Wilmington, NC, Katie and Alex Blimline of Cumming, Ga, and Davis Templin of Westminster, SC.
A private crypt side service will be conducted Friday, October 5th at Greenlawn Memorial Park Mausoleum in Columbia,. A service to celebrate life and the promise of resurrection will be conducted at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Greenwood, Sat 2:30 pm on Sunday, October 7th.
