Ms. Moore was born in Boston on January 11, 1962, and moved with her family to southern Vermont as a young child. Ms. Moore attended Whitingham School in Whitingham, graduating in 1979. She resided within the Vermont towns of Readsboro, Wilmington, and Jacksonville for many years before moving to Brattleboro, where she was employed by Thompson House nursing home as an LNA. working with the elderly. Nursing proved to be a natural fit for Ms. Moore’s inherent compassion and empathy for others.
Ms. Moore attended Brattleboro’s Community College of Vermont, earning an Associate of Arts degree in liberal studies. In 2003, deciding she’d like a change, Ms. Moore moved close to her mother in Arizona and accepted a new job, again working with the elderly, through Nurses Network in Sedona as a CNA, until she became too ill.
Mrs. Moore was truly an angelic spirit and will be lovingly remembered for the way that she communicated with careful consideration, always conveying her thoughts in a soft-spoken, sensitive way. Ms. Moore’s deep love of her friends and large family was evident to all who knew her, and she maintained her connections by often sending notes and photos “just because.” Mrs. Moore enjoyed jewelry-making, rock-collecting, photography, hiking, family heirlooms, and her two cats, Maggie and Ollie, who were very much like children to her.
Ms. Moore was predeceased by her father, Fred Moore, on November 21, 1967, as well as her brother, Jeffrey Moore, on April 23, 1995, and is survived by her mother and stepfather, Esther and Harold Carmody, of Camp Verde, AZ; brother, Greg Moore, of San Francisco, brother, Doug Moore and wife, Carol, of Readsboro, VT; sister Linda Bolt, of Oak Creek Canyon, AZ; sister Brenda Washburn and husband, Greg, of Bellows Falls, VT; brother, Fred Moore Jr. and wife, Linda, of North Haven, CT; brother, Gordon Moore and wife, Pamela, of Jacksonville, VT; longtime friend, Doug Spaeth of Cottonwood; as well as many nieces and nephews and their children.
The extended Moore family wishes to acknowledge with gratitude the dedication and love that she received from her mother and father throughout her illness, including caring for her for the last four months at their home in Camp Verde. They also recognize and appreciate the caregiving, support, and companionship given by eldest sister Linda Bolt.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 2, at the Jacksonville Community Church at 2 pm, and all are encouraged to share stories and memories with the family.

Komen for the Cure, 5005 LBJ Freeway, Ste. 250, Dallas, TX 75244, or the Guy Hawkins Cancer Fund, PO Box 175, Wilmington, VT 05363
