Sylvia Mavis Green of Somerset, Kentucky passed from this life on Saturday, January 9, 2021.  

Mavis was born on May 1, 1939 in Las Cruces, New Mexico, daughter of the late R. Cecil and Merle Gray Raynor.  

Mavis was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and life partner Paul Matthew Green, daughter Susan Maiman and a brother Troy Raynor.  

Mavis enjoyed laughing with her family and friends. She had an eclectic taste in music, and liked to read while looking for cardinals. Mavis cherished her K-9 companion and guardian, Cali. Mavis had a pure heart and treated everyone with kindness and patience. Mavis and her late husband Paul retired to Kentucky almost 20 years ago. They made lifelong friends and extended their family in the area. After Paul’s passing, Mavis continued his legacy. Re-established in a new neighborhood, Mavis had a new and different life where neighbors again became family.
