Obituary

Orie Pierce was born in Monks Corner, South Carolina, to proud parents Wilbert and Lucy Richardson. She was the fourth of eight children.

Orie attended elementary school in South Carolina. The family then migrated to New York, settling in the borough of Manhattan where she went to school and graduated from Brandeis High School. She then attended the Superior Career Institute where she became licensed by the State of New York as a registered nurse.

She later met John Edward Pierce and they married in January 8, 1963, their union was blessed with four children, Sabrina Pierce, Nicole Pierce, John Edward Pierce Jr. and Cyrus Pierce.

After receiving her license, she went to work for New York University Medical Center where she put in twenty-six years of dedicated service and received numerous promotions. She was a member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in East Harlem Manhattan, New York.

Orie enjoyed watching her westerns on television with a couple of cold ones.

Orie departed this life on March 1, 2020, and has gone on to join her parents, Wilbert and Lucy; brothers, John and Jonathan; sisters, Mary and Lorraine and daughter, Nicole Pierce.

She leaves behind to mourn and cherish memories: her devoted daughter, Sabrina; two sons, John and Cyrus Pierce; two grandsons, Andre Simpson, Cyrus Nathaniel Pierce and last but not least her beloved John West.

Lovingly Submitted by,
The Family
