Agnes Lucille Craft Greene was born in Dallas, TX on November 20, 1947 to George Otis Craft and Johnnie Mae Bramlett Craft. She was the fourth of five children.



Agnes grew up in Arlington Park and received Christ through baptism at an early age at Bethany Baptist Church in Elm Thicket.



As a member of the band, Agnes played the clarinet at Booker T. Washington Technical High School where she graduated with honors in 1966.



In the fall of 1966 Agnes matriculated to North Texas State University where she majored in Math and Chemistry. She graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Business Administration in 1973.



During her first week on campus Agnes saw and met Charles Edward “Joe” Greene of Temple, TX. It was after his first football game that Joe introduced Agnes to his mother Cleo Thomas as “the woman he was going to marry”. Agnes and Cleo were both shocked.



Agnes and Joe married on January 28, 1968. Together they had three children: Charles Major, Edward Delon and Joquel.



She raised their three children to believe and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. Her goal was the same with her seven grandchildren. She loved going to their performances and attending their athletic competitions and getting as much sugar (hugs and kisses) as possible.



Agnes believed in serving the community; most important she believed in being a supportive wife and nurturing mom. She expertly managed two homes in two different cities for 13 years during her husband’s professional football career.



Agnes Lucille Greene was initiated into the Alpha Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated in Dallas, TX in 1983. In addition, she served on the University of North Texas (formerly North Texas State University) Alumni Association Board of Directors. While on the Board, she chaired the 2007 UNT Emerald Eagle Scholarship Gala. She was an honorary co-chair for the Denton County Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Walk in 2010. Earlier this year, she was honored by Philia Works of Houston, Incorporated for being an inspiring woman.



Anyone who met Agnes knew that she had a depth of love in her that was unending and everlasting. She acquired that capacity to love as a little girl when she received Christ. She had a profound love for Jesus and desired the word. In her life, she attended and served at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship. Later when she moved back to Texas in 2004, she attended Covenant Church in Colleyville. She also attended Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) for four years.



Wife, mom, grand-mother, sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, friend, Miss Agnes, Craft, Aggie, Aggie Lu, or Card Partner…no matter the name we called her she is well loved and will be missed.



She leaves to cherish her memory: her husband Joe, children: Major (Tiffany), Delon (Aimee) and Joquel; seven grand-children: Cleo, Sydney, Preston, Carly, Evan, Ella, and Emersyn; siblings: Lois Pruitt, Anna Harrison, Robert Earl (Marjorie) Craft, Helen (Duane) Smith; Mother-in-law Cleo Thomas; Sister-in-law Joyce Jones; Brother-in-law Ervin (Kathryn) Thomas; a host of nephews and nieces; and a bounty of wonderful friends.



The family is encouraging friends and loved ones to contribute to the Agnes Lucille Craft Greene Memorial Scholarship in lieu of sending flowers. https://one.unt.edu/greene
