On August 25th1927, Henry & Sadie Louise Taylor birthed the one and only, “Henryne Louise Taylor-Moore!” Being the only child, Henryne wasted no time embarking on her journey. At the very young age of 21, Henryne started and owned “Henryne’s Beauty Bazar” the largest black beauty salon located on Chicago’s south side. Henryne was defiantly a woman of many talents. While growing her salon, Henryne somehow found time to open and manage 3 prestigious lounges, “Moore’s Famous Door, Heidi’s Soul Kitchen and The Tangerine Lounge.” As if 24 hours was enough time, Henryne graciously defied all laws of physics by devoting more of her time to other endeavors. Not only did Henryne have the brains, fierce work ethic and charm, “SHE WAS DROP DEAD GORGOUS!” Ebony, Jet and Vogue Magazines could not get enough of this socialite. Between the 3 firms, Henryne Taylor-Moore had become the poster child for all things beautiful! Henryne’s face was plastered on every billboard in the state of Illinois, a Triple Threat Indeed.
After all of the glamor and glitz, Henryne decided to explore other paths. Realizing how blessed she was, Henryne vowed to help others in their time of need. With that in mind, Henryne set forth to Toledo Ohio where she would quickly manifest her promise to give back. Shortly after arriving to Toledo Ohio, Henryne obtained her nursing degree and worked lovingly in the coronary care unit for 27 years. Although working 2ndshift in a hospital, Mrs. Henryne was still able and willing to help others. Henryne devoted herself during the day to make hats and clothes for people in need with any and all proceedings being given to the people in need. Henryne donated to multiple charities, organizations and families. A REAL LIFE MOGUL, HUMANITARIAN AND GOD FEARING QUEEN WHO IS DEEPLY MISSED BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN…
In The Real Words of The Queen, “If you see me and a bear in a fight, don’t help me… YOU BETTER HELP THE BEAR!”
HENRYNE LOUISE TAYLOR-MOORE
God looked around His garden
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered “Peace be thine”.
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
