PAGOP Deputy Chair Renee Amoore Dies At 67
Renee Amoore, longtime Deputy Chair of the Pennsylvania Republican Party, died at the age of 67. The Philadelphia Tribune reports that the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office has yet to determine the cause of death.
The Pennsylvania Republican Party sent out an email to state committee members on Tuesday afternoon announcing the news.
“It is with great sadness that I share with you the passing of a close friend and fierce Republican, Renee Amoore, Deputy Chair of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania,” wrote PAGOP Chairman Lawrence Tabas. “Southeastern Pennsylvania has lost a great leader and the Republican Party a stalwart supporter. I will miss her friendship, guidance, and most of all her upbeat attitude.”
PAGOP Vice Chairwoman Bernie Comfort credited Amoore for being a trailblazer for both women and people of color.
“Renee carved a path for so many to follow,” Comfort wrote. “She was a good friend, a faithful Republican and an irreplaceable voice for our party. We are so proud of and grateful for all she has done for the Republican Party of Pennsylvania. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this difficult time.”
“It is with a heavy heart that I received the news of the passing of a great warrior, mother, wife and friend, Renee Amoore,” wrote PAGOP Director of Engagement and Advancement Calvin Tucker. “I will never forget her kindness. May God give her eternal rest and the family the strength to bear this great pain.”
In 1996, Amoore was elevated to the position of Deputy Chair of the PA GOP.
Amoore’s bio page on the PAGOP website described her as a “long time advocate of clinically appropriate and cost effective alternatives to more expensive care,” and cited her background as being trained as a registered nurse, with a Masters degree in Counseling and Administration.
Outside of the PA GOP, she served as the founder and president of The Amoore Group, which includes Amoore Health Systems, Inc., 521 Management Group, Inc., and Ramsey Educational and Development Institute, Inc. These companies provide economic development and job creation opportunities, government liaison, marketing, and public relations services at both corporate and educational training programs, according to the PA GOP website.
