Mrs. Moore died peacefully Sunday afternoon in her Village Manor residence, surrounded by her family.
She was the daughter of Frank and Belle Kearney Edwards, a member of St. John Catholic Church, and a registered nurse. After completing her trianing at St. Thomas Hospital School of Nursing, she chose family over career, dedicating her life to raising her nine children. She was an example to them as a mother, and a Christian, instilling a faith that continues today. She now joins in their eternal reward her husband: Edgar James Moore, Sr., who preceded her in Feb. 2000.
