Moore, Clell Lorraine (Heath)* - Greenville  
GREENVILLE | Having lived a life full of love, faith, and joy, Clell Lorraine Heath Moore died at home on Monday, May 23, 2016, at the age of 88. The family will receive friends Tuesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Wilkerson Funeral Home, Greenville. Burial will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday at the Heath Family Cemetery on Heath Swamp Road in Cove City, NC. A service in celebration of Clell's life will be held at Immanuel Baptist Church at 2 p.m. also on Wednesday. Clell was known for her enthusiasm for life and its beauty, her wonderful garden, her faithfulness to God and her beloved Immanuel Baptist Church, and her work with Samaritan's Purse Children's Heart Project. Prior to her retirement, Clell was a long-time employee of Hollowell's Drugstore. Clell was married to William Gibbs Moore for 53 years before his death in 2003. Clell is survived by her two daughters, Beth Moore Robrecht and her husband, Tom, of Asheville, NC and Robin Moore Smith and her husband, Sheldon, of Kure Beach, NC, and her brother, Ivey L. Heath of Columbia, SC and his wife, Beverly. She also has three wonderful grandchildren, Ashley Smith and her husband, Tyler Clark, Will Smith, and Ben Smith, and two very special great-granddaughters, Madyson and Savannah. Clell was born in 1928 in Cove City, NC. Her mother and father, Elizabeth and Leinster Heath, were both from large families, so Clell enjoyed good times with lots of Heath and McCoy cousins throughout her life. During their retirement years, she and Bill took many happy vacations with a group of Heath cousins close in age, Carrol and Elinor Hawkins, Raymond and Frances Heath, Jackie McCoy, Caroleen Boyd, Tommy and Marvel Heath, and Buddy and Dot Heath along with Clell's brother and sister-in-law. Clell's garden was her art. When she and Bill moved to their Elm Street home, the lot was a bare former cornfield. Clell put her green fingers to work and, over the years, created a lush Eden of azaleas, gardenias, rhododendrons, pine trees and pecan trees in her backyard. She was known to flag down college students passing by with a "Come and see my garden" when the azaleas were at their peak. One of the great satisfactions of Clell's life was her work with Samaritan's Purse. In her later 70's, with the faithful assistance of her friends at Immanuel Baptist, she began hosting children from foreign countries who were having heart defects repaired at the ECU Medical Center. She was privileged to have babies from Kosovo, Mongolia, and South America, along with their mothers and translators, stay in her home during their surgery and convalescence and send them home with a new lease on life. Kennedy Home in Kinston, NC (a part of Baptist Children's Home of NC ("BCH")) held a special place in Clell's heart. Her husband, Bill, and two of his siblings spent their growing-up years there during the Depression. Bill was a Trustee of BCH for many years, and he and Clell always enjoyed sharing their enthusiasm for BCH's work. The family is grateful to Clell's beloved friend, Joyce Adams, for her tender care and faithful friendship during Clell's illness. In addition, the family would like to express its gratitude to Clell's compassionate caregivers from Aseracare and SilverCare, Dr. William Diehl and the medical staff at the Duke University Hospital Cancer Center, Dr. Darla Liles, the medical staff at Leo Jenkins Cancer Center and Dr. Bryan Cooper, Eastern Headache & Spine. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Immanuel Baptist Church, 1101 S. Elm St., Greenville, NC 27858, Samaritan's Purse Children's Heart Project, P.O. Box 3000, Boone NC 28607, or Baptist Children's Homes of NC, P.O. Box 338, Thomasville, NC 27360. Online condolences at
