A memorial service for Helen N. Moore, 94, longtime East Aurora resident and a former member of the East Aurora School Board, will be held at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in Baker Memorial United Methodist Church, Main and Center streets, East Aurora.

Mrs. Moore, a technical assistant and secretary in her husband's chemical consulting laboratory for many years, died Aug. 27, 1990, in the Episcopal Church Home of Western New York.

A native of Bridgeport, Conn., the former Helen Neilson grew up in Nutley, N.J., and came to Buffalo in about 1915 when her father took a position as a tool-and-die maker at the old Pierce Arrow Co. plant here. She moved to East Aurora in about 1919.

Her husband, Raymond L. Moore, was a chemist who maintained a consulting laboratory dealing primarily in heavy leather and soil testing. Mrs. Moore assisted him at his South Division Street location and, later, in East Aurora. He died in 1969.

A one-term member of the East Aurora School Board, Mrs. Moore also delivered for Meals on Wheels for several years in East Aurora.

According to her daughter, Barbara M. Seeger of East Aurora, she had been an American Red Cross blood donor "for as long as she could. She was a gardener and a pianist and took in young people whose parents moved away."

Surviving besides Mrs. Seeger are two sons, John N. of Youngstown and David L. of East Aurora; five grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
