Helen Minor Moore died September 30, 2017 at the age of 94. Born in Brooksville, Mississippi on March 22, 1923, she grew up Noxubee county. While attending the University of Alabama, she was a member of Tri Delta sorority. In October of 1946 she married James Moore of Corinth Mississippi and lived her adult life there raising their two children. Everyone who knew Helen would agree that she embodied the definition of the true southern lady. Her entertaining skills and her generosity to all of her friends and loved ones were unsurpassed.

Upon moving to Memphis she was a communicant of Grace St. Luke's Episcopal church.

In 2006, following the death of her husband James, she moved to Memphis and resided at Trezevant Manor, where she lived until her death. Helen was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, and one sister, and her husband James Moore Sr. She is survived by her son Jim Moore (Bond) of Memphis, her daughter Marcia Slabaugh (Steve) of Lexington, KY. Grandchildren Lane Slabaugh (Sarah), Holley Slabaugh of Louisville, KY; and Minor Moore of Nashville, and two great grandchildren.

A graveside service will be 10 a.m., Wednesday, October 4 at Henry Cemetery in Corinth, MS. A memorial service will be 1 p.m., Wednesday, October 4 in Memphis at St. Edward Chapel of Trezevant Manor. Visitation will follow the service.
