With profound sadness we announce the passing of DeLora Ann Moore on January 31, 2020 after a roller coaster of declining health for the past year. In the two months preceding her passing she had been a patient at UNC Medical Center in Chapel Hill ICU and Moses Cone Hospital ICU in Greensboro, North Carolina. Despite all valiant attempts to sustain life, her life started fading away and she was transferred to Bryan Hospice Center in Pittsboro, where she passed peacefully with family by her side.
Born in Bear Creek, North Carolina, on June 28, 1952, she was always a very vivacious person who experienced the beginnings of the computer technology industry and knew from the beginning this was her calling. Just a few of her many exciting ventures into the world of computer technology was working with the Olympics Committee in California early in her career and NBC Network in New York. When she got tired of traveling she moved back to her home place of Bear Creek and used her skills as a computer programmer and analyst at the Research Triangle in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Predeceased by parents Astor Maness and Daisy Robena Moore, brothers Isaac Ray and Rodney Astor Moore, and a former husband and longtime friend Billy Justice.
She was a dear sister of Brenda Williamson (Jerry), Faith Moore, Danny Moore (Ann), Eugene Moore (Ruby), Sharon DeBruhl (Dave) and remembered by her many nieces and nephews.
DeLora loved to cook and entertain in her home for friends and family before becoming ill. She loved home projects and crafts of all kinds. Truly a business woman at heart, it was not unusual to find her laying tile and stuccoing walls! In her kitchen she turned out many mouthwatering foods and her candy bouquets were especially beautiful and a favorite with everyone.
A celebration of DeLora’s life was held at Sandy Branch Baptist Church, 715 Sandy Branch Church Rd, Bear Creek, North Carolina on February 5, 2020 with visitation being from 1 to 2 p.m. and service immediately following at 2 p.m. A time of fellowship followed in the Sandy Branch Community Building.
Flowers may be sent to Smith & Buckner Funeral Home, 230 N 2nd Ave, Siler City, North Carolina or memorial donations may be made to Sandy Branch Baptist Church.
