Copeland Funeral Service

Ask a family we have served… ™



Joanne B. Moses, 89, passed away on December 9 after a brief illness.

She spent her childhood in Chevy Chase, MD, graduated from National Cathedral School and Duke University, and spent the first 30 years of her adult life in New Jersey. Nearly 30 years ago she moved to the Low Country, where she fell in love with the area and the ever-changing moods of the salt marshes.

A memorial service will be held in early March, and her family requests that instead of flowers, donations be sent to either The Circle of Hope Ministries (P.O. Box 554, Beaufort, SC 29901), The Good Neighbor Free Medical Clinic (974 Ribaut Road, Beaufort, SC 29902), or Friends of Caroline Hospice (1110 13th St., Port Royal, SC 29935).

We mourn the passage of this kind and generous spirit, and ask you to keep her in your thoughts.

    My tribute to my beloved friend, Joanne Moses:
    Joanne possessed all of the wonderful attributes of a virtuous human-being: love, compassion, generosity and self-sacrifice to improve the quality of life for those who struggle to survive day by day. She brought light to a world that is shrouded in darkness. She was adorned with strength and honor. Wisdom graced her lips, and in her tongue was the law of kindness. Surly, our loss is heaven’s gain, but her light shall never be extinguished. All who were privileged to know her will miss her lovingly. She has left her family an enduring legacy that they can forever treasure.
    In Hi love & service,
