Obituary for Lou Moore

Alma Lou “Lou” Moore of Marietta, Ohio, died on August 29, 2017 at her home. She was born on October 7, 1932 in Parkersburg, WV, to Frances (Martin) Moore and Perry Frank Moore.

Lou was a graduate of Belpre High School and East Carolina University, North Carolina. She did post-graduate work at Duke University, Ohio University, and Marietta College. She taught elementary school in North Carolina in Morehead City, Raleigh, and Durham; in Parkersburg, and for Marietta City Schools from 1960 until her retirement in 1990.

Lou was a past member of Delta Kappa Gamma, the Betsy Mills Club Girls’ Board, AAUW, and the Arts and Letters Society. She also participated in Friends of the Museum, Washington County Retired Teachers, the Marietta Food Pantry, the Marietta Calligraphy Society, PEO – Chapter U, and Friends of the Museum. She served as a Marietta Trolley tour guide and a docent at the Castle. She also served a term on the Marietta Women’s Home board of directors, and she was a Deacon and member of the Westminster Bell Choir of Marietta’s First Presbyterian Church.

Lou loved animals, watercolor painting, history, and travel. She took her first airplane flight in 1941 and over the years had travel to Europe, Hawaii, Hong Kong, China, Mexico, the Mediterranean, Panama Canal, and throughout the United States. Her favorite destination was the beach. Many of Lou’s watercolors depicted the sea grass, sand, and seashores of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

She was preceded in death by her parents. Lou is survived by cousins Naomi Smith, Ruth Martin, Barbara Taylor Beggs, and David Taylor – all of Florida. She is fondly remembered and sadly missed by DD (Darling Dog) and CC (Calico Cat), and many former students, co-workers, and friends including Jayne Stehle, the Friday Lunch and Travel Bunch, and her Glenwood and the Pines friends and neighbors.

Special thanks to the Pines at Glenwood, their administrators, nurses, and staff for their outstanding support and care during her courageous battles of the last few months, to Marietta Home Health and Hospice, and to her personal care team: Holly, Michelle, Kathy, Sue Ann, and Brenda.

Memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at the First Presbyterian Church in Marietta, with The Rev. David Smith officiating. Visitation will be for one hour prior to the services at the church. Burial of her ashes will be on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at East Lawn Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the First Presbyterian Church of Marietta or the Marietta Community Foundation.
