We regretfully announce the passing of Helena Nunu Gray of High Point. She went home to Jesus on August 7th at age 66 surrounded by her friends and family.
Helena, born on January 24, 1955 to Daniel Gray and Hawa Nimley Gray in Monrovia, Liberia, immediately brought joy and laughter into the world. Helena went on to graduate from Secondary school in Liberia as an honor student. After graduating from high school, Helena went on to work for a Telecommunications company in Liberia; before moving to the United States at the age of 27.
Our mother, Helena, was one of the strongest women to ever walk this earth and our family was blessed to have her as the head of the family. Helena graduated from John Wesley University with a Bachelors in Pastoral Ministries, and then later went back to get her Masters in Theology.
In addition to being a dedicated and loving mother, Helena also loved exercise, travelling and most of all helping children. Throughout her entire life, she held an unwavering faith in God, which she shared with those who surrounded her. She loved God and children so much that after graduating, she went on to help service under privileged kids back in her hometown of Monrovia by starting a nonprofit named Agape Ministry for kids.
Helena was a fiercely dedicated mom to all of her children, raising all 3 of them to go on to accomplish great things. Family came first and was above all else to Helena; a value she instilled in all those around her. The void left by her absence is impossible to fill.
A Celebration of Life will be given on Saturday, August 21, 2021, at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, 753 Washington Drive, High Point, North Carolina at 11:00 a.m. The family will receive visitors and friends at the church from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. Burial will follow at Guil-Rand Memorial Park Cemetery.
