Doris Kathleen Moore

May 3, 1933 - November 19, 2013
Doris Kathleen Moore


Doris Kathleen Moore, lovingly known as “Duke” by her family and friends, went home to be with the Lord on November 19, 2013.

Doris was born in Johnstown, PA on May 3, 1933, to the late Roger McFadden and Kathleen “Little Mommy” McFadden. She was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Henry Moore. Doris spent fifteen years dedicated to the United States Postal Service before retiring and beginning a second career with the post office at UNCW. After twenty years with UNCW, she was once again able to enjoy her retirement by spending time with friends and family, reading her Kindle, talking on the phone with distant family, sneaking food to her dog Gizmo, and living life the way her favorite boys from Duck Dynasty did: happy, happy, happy!

She is survived by her daughter, Susan Jackson of Wilmington, and her sons, Michael Moore and wife, Renee of Rutland, VT, and Steven Moore and wife, Mary of Wilmington, along with four grandchildren, Lindsay, Darby, Nicole, and Shannon. Also surviving are her two sisters, Carol Harris and husband, Don of Wilmington, and Carolyn Grimes of Clearwater, FL.

A Mass of the Resurrection will be held at 11 AM on Monday, November 25, 2013, at St. Mark’s Catholic Church with Msgr. Stephen C. Worsley officiating.

    I am so sorry for your loss. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. Hope these words give you a new hope.

    There are so few words that I can even begin to think of, to explain how great of a loss this is. One week ago today, my world crashed down around me. I am so blessed to have been so close to you. I have 24 years of memories to get me through the rest of my life without you, but it's still not enough. Everyday, my heart is physically aching. I will never forget your silly talk, and your laughter. Coming home from school and doing homework with you (better yet, you doing my homework for a LONG time!). Your love for the finer things in life- cookies, cakes, anything with sugar in it, Duck Dynasty, your kindle, and your family, and your faith. I'm so sad that you only got 18 months with baby Adi. She was 100% the apple of your eye. I can only hope that you know now how much you meant to me, and will mean to me forever. So many things were left unsaid. Give Hank a hug for me, and look out for us down here. We need you more now, than ever.

    Doris, I have many happy childhood memories of both you and Hank. I remember one day as you were asleep on the couch, I got into your makeup and tried to put bright red lipstick on you. You played along and made funny faces while I continued to put more makeup on you and myself. You always enjoyed laughing, playing and acting silly with all the children in our family. You were like a grandmother to me and I will never forget it. You have been so good to little Adi too. I will make sure she knows all about you and keeps up with her salt and pepper shaker collection. My mom and you were so close and spoke with each other every day. I know she is missing her sister very much right now. We all miss you but are happy that you are now in heaven with Hank. We will hold you close in our memories. Love, Brooke

    A truely cherished woman by those close to her! I am one of Darby's best friends. And what I remember most is how she would love for my son, Jett to come visit and she would tell him stories and her face would light up with a pink glow. I was always worried,at 3 years old, my son would be too much for her to handle. But she enjoyed the ruckas he made, chasing her little Gizmo around the house. Bless her family and friends, and rest in peace dear Duke.
