Nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38 – 39

On Monday, December 14, 2020, Daisy Miller Moorer, a loving aunt, cousin, and friend, passed away at the blessed age of 97 at NHC-Bluffton. She was born July 22, 1923, to the late Lillie Man - or Small and Doc Leo Miller in Allendale County, SC. She was the baby and only girl of three siblings. She often told the story of how she was spoiled by her grandparents. She received her formal education in the public school system in Allendale County. She was a domestic worker. In 1964, Daisy married the late Leroy Jones. Later in life, she married the late Charlie Moorer. To this marriage, she gained three adult daughters, Ruby Frederick, Annette Blocker, and Rosa L. Felder, and two adult sons, Joe (Francis) and Jake (Linda).

“Our commonwealth is in Heaven, and from it; we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will change our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power which enables him even to subject all things to himself.” Philippians 3:20-21 Aunt Daisy, as she was fondly called, was small in status, but big in spirit. She lived for 10 or more years in New York City. She loved her church family and served many years on the usher board. She had a passion for sewing and made most of her cloth - ing. She was a fashion diva for sure. Daisy was full of wisdom and always gave her input. She loved cooking and making her family and friends her famous coffee, tea, and toast. Gospel was her favorite music, and the telephone was her way to stay abreast of what was going on. She was a caregiver to her mom and cared about others. She was known for her quick wit, her strength, and her compassionate spirit. Daisy was fierce and stood her ground for truth. She believed in respect. God granted her the ability to have her right mind at the end of her earthly journey. If she got it wrong, she would often say, “Don’t tell me, I am slipping.” She was the matriarch and the life of the family. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” Isaiah 41:10

Aunt Daisy didn’t have children of her own but was blessed with a large family tree. She leaves to cherish her memories: her caring nieces, Elizabeth (Gary) Haynes of Estill, SC, Rosa Lee Green of Newark, NJ, Bertha (Donald) Ridley of Rincon, GA, Virgin - ia Smith, Minister Daisy Manor, Evonne Manor, and Maxine (Norman) Bostick, all of Estill, SC, Betty Clark of Statesboro, GA, and Josephine Roberts of Yemassee, SC; nephews, Lawrence Manor, and Minister Lewis (Donell), both of Estill, SC, and Mi - cheal Bazemore of CA; stepchildren, Ruby Frederick, Annette Blocker, Rosa L. Felder, Joe (Francis) Moorer, and Jake (Linda) Moorer, all of Orangeburg, SC; special nieces, Kathy Gregley and Sarah Allen; special grandnieces and nephews, LaToya Wil - liams, LaPrecious Haynes, Destiny Bostick, and Jalen Manor; special cousins, Charlie Finney, Asberry Mungin, Lillie Ruth Russell, and Teresa Brewster; special friend, Sadie Green; and a host of other nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Daisy was preceded in death by her parents, Lillie M. Smalls and Doc Leo Miller; two brothers and sisters-in-law, Joseph (Gladys) Bazemore and Maxie (Elizabeth) Manor; nieces, Willie M. Best and Sylvia Boston; nephew, Harry Herbert; and stepdaughter, Barbara Disher.
