Helen E. McPherson

June 16, 1946 ~ October 26, 2017 (age 71)

Minister Helen Elizabeth Davis-Peace McPherson, 71 has taken her heavenly predawn flight on Thursday, October 26, 2017 being summoned by God and his ministering angels to join the elders and the heavenly hosts. Helen was a former resident of Freehold where she grew up and graduated Freehold Regional High School before moving to Lakewood, New Jersey. Helen was the daughter of the late Charles E. Sr. and Anna P. Davis. She overcame a long and courageous battle of Alzheimer's and Cancer.

Helen was a talented singer as she grew up in the Second Baptist Church of Freehold youth choir and was lead singer on many occasions. Freehold was the hub for cultivating musicians and athletes. Growing up on Lockwood Ave. in Freehold was a wholesome and unique experience. Exposed to many helpful elders in which gave wisdom and direction needed to develop a formidable personality. As a youth Helen enjoyed many years of Brownies and Girl Scouts in the Freehold area. Freehold afforded its youth with such learning opportunities as Summer Music School where Helen learned to play the clarinet coupled with her vocal abilities and every summer she participated in the community Vacation Bible School where along with Sunday school received her initial biblical education.

As adolescents in Freehold she enjoyed many fun-filled Friday nights dancing at the canteen of the St. Rose of Lima school youth community activities and also the Sportmen's Club on Sunday afternoons. Helen developed athletically with the influences of her two brothers Charles and Richard (who preceded her in death by 17 days).

As Helen matured as an adult she gave back to her community by working in the medical field caring for the sick and was a hospice care giver in which she infused her sacred calling. She tried to connect hope to the sick. In an effort to embrace her sacred calling she joined Grace and Peace Church in Toms River, New Jersey and enrolled in many theological classes to equip herself for ministry. She moved on to membership at The Apostolic Restoration Church, Jackson N. J. where she received her credentials as an evangelical outreach minister under the leadership of Apostle Peter Guilsoipe where she had her initial sermon. She then moved to Monmouth County at the onset of illness with her children and joined the Macedonia Church family of Neptune, New Jersey.

Helen had a bold witness for telling others about Jesus and was often heard saying "Jesus Is Lord". Helen was a praiser and was often found praising God at the Gospel sounds of the Macedonia Church.

Helen met and married the late Ernest Peace and from that union was brought Angela Robinson (Jason) and Tiffany Peace. She was preceded in death by her son John John and her granddaughter Taniesha her parents Charles E. Sr. and Anna P. Davis, her brother Tony Fowler (deceased).

Helen leaves to cherish her memories her daughters Angela Robinson (Jason) and Tiffany Peace, her brothers Charles E. Jr. (Neptune) and William B.(Cherry) Howell Township and one sister Sandra Davis (Neptune) seven grandchildren Owen Tyshaun, Ceeasia, Tydashia, Dayquan, Shamel. and Treasurer, and two great grand-children Nicole and Nia all of Neptune. She also leaves to cherish her memory a host of relatives and lifetime friends. You've fought a good fight, You've Finished the course. You've kept the faith. Now receive your crown.
