LEXINGTON, Ky. - Mary T. Moore, 80, widow of Robert B. Moore, passed away on April 11, 2013. Born in Washington, D.C., and a long time resident of Allentown, PA, she spent her last 8 years in Lexington, KY, near her daughter, Kathryn (Peter Hislop), and two grandchildren, Rosa and Fernando.
She is also survived by her son, Robert (Julie), and her grandsons, Mitchell and Brian of Wheaton, IL.
Mary attended Woman's College of the University of North Carolina and graduated from Northwestern University. A loving wife, mother, and grandmother, she was a strong, caring and courageous individual who, due to a spinal cord injury suffered during a car accident in 1962, overcame far more health and physical challenges than any individual should have to endure. She was strong in her faith, a good listener who always encouraged others and made friends quickly. She was an inspiration to us all and will be greatly missed. Mary was the daughter of the late Earl and Martelle (Wickliffe) Trager.
A memorial service will be held at St. Anne's Episcopal Church, Allentown, PA, later this year and she will be interred with her husband of 48 years at Arlington National Cemetery where her brother, Earl Trager, Jr. is also interred. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be given to Joni and Friends, P.O. Box 3333, Agoura Hills, CA 91376-3333.
Arrangements handled by Care Cremation & Funeral Service.
