Obituary for Faye Bourne Moore

Atlanta, GA:
Faye Bourne Moore, age 76, of Atlanta, GA and St. Simons Island, GA passed away from complications from pneumonia.
She was the oldest child of Adlai and Hazel Bourne born at home on April 24th 1942 in Georgetown, SC and attended Winyah Bay High School before graduating from Pine Bluff High School in Pine Bluff Arkansas and Mississippi State College for Women.
She passed away peacefully at Emory University hospital the morning of Saturday February 9th 2019.
She is survived by her husband of 55 years Albert (Whitey) Moore of St. Simon Island, Georgia and Atlanta, GA. She is survived by her loving children Kelley Moore Godfrey and her husband Scott Godfrey as well as her son Paul Moore, wife Lisa Moore and her grandchildren Sadie Moore, Cate Moore, and Andrew Moore all of Atlanta. She is also survived by her devoted sisters Alice Ciminel and Tanner Bryant both of Pawley’s Island, South Carolina and her beloved sister in law Kaye Bourne of Dallas, Texas.
Faye lived her life guided by her faith, her conscious and was most happy when she was giving back to others and the community. She was well known in the Gwinnett County community for her service to the schools, to the environment and to the people of the community. She was honored for her volunteerism in the First Lady’s Rose Garden by the First Lady Mrs. Nancy Reagan in 1981 and by the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce as Citizen of the Year in 1985.
After moving to St. Simons Island, she continued serving her community by cooking soup monthly for the Manor House for the homeless, delivering Meals on Wheels, supporting and contributing to the St. Simon’s Land Trust and serving faithfully on the Worship Committee of Wesley United Methodist Church. Until her death, she remained a supporter and fundraiser for the Winship Cancer Clinic of Emory University.
She will be remembered for her love of her family, her sense of humor, for giving back to the community, her sense of adventure and travel and her garden.
The family will receive guests on Sunday 2/10/19 beginning at 4:00 pm at 1198 Oakdale Road NE, in Atlanta, Ga.
A graveside service will be held eleven o’clock in the Bourne family plot on Saturday February 16th at Sampit United Methodist Church Cemetery in Georgetown, South Carolina.
In lieu of flowers it would please her for donations to be made to the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, 1365 Clifton Rd., Atlanta, GA or the American Cancer Society.
