Plumer Mae Washington

Plumer Mae Washington, age 91, passed away surrounded by her family on Friday, December 13, 2019. Affectionately known as, Mae, born in Sunshine, Arkansas, on August 27, 1928, she was the second daughter to Elizabeth Summerville and John D. Washington.

Mae met Henry Greely, and they joined in holy matrimony in 1944, in Sunshine, Arkansas. To this union, ten children were born.

Mae, first and foremost, was a mother to ten vibrant children. She worked several jobs, including Stewart’s Band Box and Adams Cleaners, in the 1960s until she and her husband became entrepreneurs, owning a gas station, a restaurant, and a dry cleaner. She later moved to San Francisco, California with her mother and sister Susie Ann where she joined Third Baptist Church and loved singing in the Cathedral Choir, worked for San Francisco Unified School District in food services, and as a healthcare provider for the elderly. She was a community mother to many families in her neighborhood. Mae loved spending quality time with her family, whether it was on cruises or at family reunions, she enjoyed cooking for her family, was a professional at playing bingo and was always, asking “Where're the Jacksons?” Mae took pleasure in listening to music, especially gospel. She was a giving person with a caring heart and adored her grand, great, and great-great-grandchildren. She was a very loyal member of both her church family and Mother’s Board at St. Mark Baptist Church for many years until she became ill and could no longer attend.

Preceding her in death, parents John D. Washington and Elizabeth Summerville Jacques, son Clarence Greely, and daughter, Shelly Ann Greely. She leaves her children to cherish her memories, Geruthie Greely, Faye Lyons, Theodore Greely, Kathleen Greely, Virginia Greely, Sharon Denise Matthews (all of whom reside in Toledo, OH), and Patricia Greely, resides in Apopka, FL, LaMarr Greely (Debra) in San Francisco, CA; adopted daughter, LaTonya Linco (Erwin), and adopted son, Jermain Smith, both of San Francisco, CA. Her siblings, Susie Ann Moon, resides in Toledo, OH, John D. Washington (Carmen) in San Francisco, CA; Artelia Lane, in Detroit, MI, Virginia Brewton, and Johnnie Williams, of Chicago, IL, Ananias Washington (Katie) in Overland Park, Kansas, and Leon Washington, in Euless, Texas; (22) grandchildren; and (42) great-grandchildren, (17) great-great-grandchildren, and lots of loving family members and friends.

“ 2 John: 1The elder, To the lady chosen by God and to her children, whom I love in the truth —and not I only, but also all who know the truth — 2 because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever: In Jesus Name, Amen! New International Version (NIV).”
