  • I would like to know the date and place of the burial of Ms. Willie Bernice Green, who taught at Taejeon Christian College. She once taught the honored mother of Dr. Eun Sang Yu who now wants to visit her grave. (I believe she is buried in Atlanta, but I do not know where). Any information that will help me locate her grave will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks. In Christ, Harry Phillips, Minister Retired Formerly Pastor to PCUSA Missionaries by Harry Phillips on 01/12/2013 at 3:15 p.m.
