Helen Moree

September 23, 1954 ~ May 15, 2020 (age 65)


To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. A time to be born, and a time to die, a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 Today, we gather in the spirit of celebration to celebrate the life of Helen Louise Moree, a devoted mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, sister-in law, cousin and friend. Although God allowed her to remain on earth for sixty-five years, as a family, we were never prepared to say goodbye.

Helen was born in Furman and reared in Furman, South Carolina. She was the daughter of the late Eddie Moree Dr. and the late Marie Smith Moree. Helen was educated in the public school system in Hampton County. At an early age she joined Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Furman where she served faithfully until her health failed. Helen was employed at Beach and Tennis Resort/Master Corp in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. She was also employed at The Cypress until her health failed. Helen was loving, kind, compassionate, goodhearted, in her later years nosey and was an avid basketball lover as she loved The South Carolina Womens basketball Game Cocks, The Los Angeles Lakers and Kobe Bryant. Helen transitioned from this life after a long illness on Friday May 15, 2020 at her home in Furman, South Carolina. God saw fit to pick his beautiful rose and take her home. She was preceded in death by her parents Eddie Moree Sr. and Marie Smith Moree, two sisters Elease Boatwright and Annie Williams. Four brothers Marion, James, Eddie Jr., and Melvin Moree.

She leaves to cherish her fond memories her children, whom she loved and adored; one daughter, Velvateen (Greggery) Gordon of Goose Creek, SC and one son, Juandetrek Moree of the Home.
