The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has announced the death of another employee due to COVID-19 complications. And, on Saturday, a memorial was held for Wyvett Moore.

Moore was a mother, a friend and a wife. Gerriahya Moore is Wyvett’s daughter. “Words can’t explain how much I love you, how much you mean to me,” she said.

“People come into our lives and leave us forever changed. You, my friend, my buddy my sister, are a gift to me and so many others,” you could hear a friend say during their speech at the memorial service.

At the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, where Moore work before she took her final breath, she was considered family. Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno spoke to WINK News about the lives lost recently.

“You never want to be the person that wants to say goodbye to anybody and unfortunately COVID has presented that now for the third time in about a week and a half,” Marceno said.

Marceno attended the memorial on Saturday. Over 100 other LCSO employees also attended the memorial held at McGregor Baptist Church, leaving the chapel full.

“We’re just under 1,700 employees, but we still run it like a family unit and we really do get to know each other. We get to know each other’s personalities and having the ability to walk around and meet more people at times, you get to know them,” Marceno said.

Saying Goodbye to Wyvett was full of tears, goosebumps and many prayers. But, most importantly, it was full of love.

“To my peach, my twin, my very best friend, it’s goodbye for now until we meet again beautiful I love you mommy. Always and forever,” Gerriahya said. Wyvett was and always will be loved.

Marceno says Moore loved her job as a civil process server at the sheriff’s office and always made everyone smile. Sheriff Marceno promised her family that LCSO will always be there for them no matter what.
