November 5, 1930 – November 24, 2016
Helen Moore Woolever of Fredericksburg, VA, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, died peacefully at home after a brief illness, surrounded by family. The eldest daughter of Harry P. and Dorothy H. Moore, she was 86. Helen is survived by her husband, Miles, of Fredericksburg, VA, whom she met when they sang in the church choir together and whom she married May 17, 1958. Helen is also survived by daughter Susan Beyer (wife of William Beyer) of Clayton, NC, daughter Nancy of Alexandria, VA, son Miles, Jr. of Alexandria, VA, daughter Janet of Fairfax, VA, granddaughter, Sarah Beyer of Clayton, NC, and sister, Barbara Peters (wife of Ronald Peters) of Hamburg, PA.

Helen attended Reading High School (Reading, PA) where she sang in the A Capella choir. Helen's circle of friends from Reading High Class of 1948 gathered regularly for more than 50 years; many of the Girls also went to junior high school together. Their last reunion was October 19th. Helen also attended Reading Business Institute and worked as a legal secretary after graduation and later in the insurance industry for RKI Group Plans in Chantilly, VA.

Helen was a True Believer with a strong faith; her spirit lives on. Helen was a member of St. George's United Methodist Church, Fairfax, VA since the mid-1970s where she sang in the choir until she and Miles moved to Punta Gorda, FL in 2003. They moved to Fredericksburg, VA in November 2012. Helen was known for her witty and wry sense of humor; she loved to laugh herself and to make others laugh with her. She was also a very accomplished seamstress; she loved to knit, to embroider and to listen to the radio or stereo and sing along.

A graveside service will be held Friday, December 2nd at 11 a.m. at the City of Fairfax Cemetery, 10567 Main Street in the city of Fairfax. Family will greet friends and loved ones at St. George's United Methodist Church, 4910 Ox Road, Fairfax, immediately following the service.

The family is grateful to Capital Caring hospice for their enduring support during Helen's brief illness and is indebted to the City of Fairfax and Oakton Fire and Rescue EMTs who helped the family several times in early November.
