Carol's Story

Text size

DAVENPORT, FL: Carol A. Moore died November 26, 2015, Thanksgiving morning, at the Heart of Florida Hospital with her loving husband by her side.

Carol grew up in Gloucester, and married her high school sweetheart, Albie, to whom she was married to for 59 years. She raised two children and was also the primary caregiver for her mother who was bedridden with rheumatoid arthritis for more than 20 years.

After her mother passed away, she got her first job outside of the home at El Jay’s Service Merchandise. After El Jay’s closed, she helped her aunt Mary Kesterson run the coffee shop at Addison Gilbert Hospital. When the coffee shop closed, she worked for the AGH cafeteria until she retired.

In 2005, Carol and Al decided to sell the old homestead and move to Florida to escape the cold and snowy winters. She used to say, “You don’t have to shovel sunshine!” They made many new friends in their new community, especially the Grindle’s and the Murphy’s.

Carol had a passion for needlework and cooking. She made hundreds of baby sweaters, mittens, blankets, and so much more. During holiday dinners she would offer to bring a dessert and show up with four or five. She will be sorely missed by all that new her.

Besides her husband, Al, she is survived by a daughter, Cindy Murray; two granddaughters, Allison Murray, and Emily Mathis and her husband, Josh; a great-granddaughter, Layla Mathis, and her brother, Alex McDonald. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Carol was predeceased by her parents, Alexander and Mildred McDonald, her son, Bert Moore, her brother, Robert Moore, and a son-in-law, Robert Murray.

At Carol’s request, there will be no services. Donations may be made in her name to the Salvation Army, 440 West Nyack Road, Nyack, NY 10094.
