Helen A. Moore

On December 7th, 2023, Helen A. Moore, 94, formerly of Oakfield, Byron, and Batavia, New York, passed away at LeRoy Village Green Rehab & Nursing Home, leaving behind her loving family.

Helen was born June 12th, 1929, in Washington Township, Pennsylvania to Maxwell Fulmer and Mary A. Bell.

On September 7th, 1946, she married the love of her life, the late James F. Moore, Sr. They had three beautiful children, James F. (Penny) Moore, Jr. of Appleton, the late Kenneth J. (Cheryl) Moore of Elba, and Helen L. (late Howard) Austin of Batavia.

Gram/Old Gram was very proud of her six grandchildren, Tammy (Michael) Boudreau, James (Amy) Moore III, Jeffery (Carri) Austin, Michael Austin, Jason (Kimberly) Austin, and Kimberly (Frank) Cuttitta; twelve great-grandchildren, Haley, Kylie and Mackenzie Moore, Tyler and Gracie Boudreau, Cameron, Ava, Brycen, Abigail, Allison, Brynn and Liam Austin, and Lucus Cuttitta; and great-great grandson Mason Arevalo. Helen’s brother-in-law, Edward Kastelic, Sr. (“Uncle Ed”) was her Yankees buddy. Helen is survived by many nieces and nephews; and good friends, Aggie McKenrick and Ethel Tanner.

Helen dearly loved her late dog, Killer.

Besides her parents, Helen is predeceased by her husband, James F. Moore Sr.; son, Kenneth J. Moore; son-in-law, Howard Austin; brother, Dean (Edith) Fulmer; brothers-in-law, William (Imogene), Jack (Judy), John Moore; sisters-in-law, Minnie, Mae, and Ruth Moore, Carrie (Wilber) Helman, Dorothy Davis, Betty Kastelic, and Jean (Ron) Gibson and good friend Martha Mack.

Mom worked at many places in her life, such as weeding onions and picking potatoes on the mucklands of Elba, the canning factory in Oakfield, and Sylvania in Batavia. But most of all, she did the most important job of being our mom. We always had food on the table, clean clothes, and a tutor for us in the evenings as she did our homework. She was a caring mom and grandmother. Nothing made her happier than holidays and family gatherings.

Upon retirement, her and Dad traveled the country, visiting Hawaii, Texas, Las Vegas, California, Mexico, and Canada. They loved spending winters in Silver Springs, Florida. They fit right into retirement life there, making hundreds of friends. She was a member of American Legion Post 626 Auxiliary, IOOB’s Oakfield Chapter, and held many offices. Mom liked to play golf and bowl (even though she was not too good at it), enjoying being out with the gang. She also managed the impressive feat of still driving at 94 years of age! WE WILL MISS YOU, MOM/GRAM. Hope you can now rest in peace. XOXO

We would like to thank the entire staff at LeRoy Village Green for the wonderful care they gave our mother. Again, thank you.
