She was born July 28, 1925 in Mound City to Mark and Emma (McDaniel) Tally, one of ten children. She married Frederick Moyers on February 6, 1943. He preceded her in death on August 13, 2020. Helen’s first job was at Triple A. She was recognized in the state as the best worker who measured acreage from aerial photography. She worked as a teacher’s assistant at the Mound City Schools. Helen then worked at Connells Dress Shop for several years before buying her own dress shop in Mounds, called Helen’s Dress Shop. Working at her dress shop was where she loved to be. She later went to work at the court house as a deputy circuit clerk, where she stayed until retirement. Helen was a member of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. She was active in the Mounds First United Methodist Church as a sponsor of MYF and took children to Mexico. Helen was known for her great dancing skills. She won several trophies being a on the bowling team. After retirement she and Fred became very active at Smiles in Mounds and also at the Senior Center in Cape Girardeau, MO. Helen was a fabulous cook and house keeper. She was known for her Famous Chocolate Sheet Cake, even selling one for $100 to Benny Tally during a fund raiser for the Senior Center in Cape. Helen was a mover and a shaker, a perfect driver, but fast, an organizer of the PTA and everything else. She loved the Lord with all her heart, mind and soul and made sure Emily and Brian did too. Helen loved her family dearly. She loved her soldier boy, her children and her dear grandchildren….They were her world. There’s no doubt she asked the Good Lord to take her to her soldier boy….and He answered.
