Helen Bernice Wilson Boone

August 11th, 1935 - July 30th, 2023

Helen Bernice Wilson Boone, 87, began life’s earthly journey August 11, 1935, in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Yancey County, North Carolina. She was the fourth child and last daughter born to Don Wilson and Ruby Phillips Wilson. Her heavenly journey began on July 30, 2023. She and Paul, her husband of 63 years, met in a little mountain church and God blessed their marriage with three children; Regina Kay Boone Queen of Gaston, Brenda Fay Boone Counts of Irmo and Michael Ray Boone of Gaston. She also leaves behind two sons-in-law, Jimmy Queen and Tom Counts, and her daughter-in-law, Fran Caines Boone. Eight grandchildren, seventeen great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren were blessed to call Helen “Granny” and received the love and guidance that she freely gave. She taught us love, forgiveness, independence, and to always trust in the Lord and never give up. Grandchildren left with memories are Christina, Amy, Jamie, Sabrina, Jessie, Jenny, Sammy and Wesley. Great-grands who will miss “Granny” are Kayla, John Paul, Meredith, John Henry, Abi, Manny, Bella, JJ. Jace, Jacob, Conlan, Skylar, Penny, Ellie, Dylon, Lila and Oliver. Called home before her were her parents, two brothers, Donald Dee (R.D.) and Vester Lee, as well as two sisters, Marchie Linnette Cooper McPeters and Lillian Addie Wilson Boone. Surviving are two brothers, Therry and Coy Wilson, and two sisters-in-law, Mary Lou Boone Jarrett and Margaret Wilson. Her many nieces and nephews, all of North Carolina, will remember their Aunt Helen as always having a stick of gum to share, a hug, a smile or just a kind word of wisdom. We will gather August 2nd for visitation beginning at 1:00 with the service following at 2:00 in the Chapel at Woodridge Memorial Park, 138 Corley Mill Road, Lexington, SC 29072. The service will be officiated by Rev. Michael Price and Rev. Gene Henderson. Please join us for our earthly farewells and celebration as she has begun her heavenly journey. Burial will be at Woodridge following the funeral service. Pallbearers will be grandsons and great-grandsons. Go with God, rest in peace, enjoy your new life, we will miss you until we meet again. Psalm 48:14 For this God is our God forever and ever; he will be our guide even unto death.
