Piper Olivia Moore passed away suddenly on Oct. 27, 2016. She was a CF survivor for fifteen years, who was indomitable, in spite of her disease. Piper was a self-professed geek who loved all things Big Bang Theory, Pokemon, Minecraft, Wattpad, purple, and Alton Brown. She loved food, but refused to eat anything with a face on it; no peeps or chocolate bunnies for this girl. She loved tacos, barbecue and Cheez Doodles and it had to be Cheez Doodles, no Cheetos Puffs allowed! She also had an affinity for collecting strange objects; she never met a medicine cup she didn't love, or a sticker she didn't have to put on her vest machine. Although Piper was on home-bound schooling, she maintained excellent grades and lived for the days she had National History Day, Forensics, or anything else Mickey VanDerwerker or Margie Skalka related. When she wasn't geeking out on tech stuff, she was an avid reader. “Piper...Piper...Piper!” was not an unusual refrain to be heard in her household. Her UVA Children's Hospital family loved when Piper was admitted, because they knew she could tell them exactly what to do and when to do it, while she was there. They could also count on thermometer probes and nerf darts being launched at them when they least expected it. They even enjoyed being thoroughly trounced at Mario Kart. Piper leaves behind a plethora of family and friends who adored her. Her Mother, Amanda N. Moore who resided with her in Bedford, and misses her dearly, maternal Grandmother Bonnie M. Given, also of Bedford. Paternal Grandmother, Judy A. Moore, of Fairfield, Ohio. Her Uncle and Aunt, Hartley and Sherri Given of Huddleston, and their daughter Kassidy; born only a month apart, in many ways they were more like siblings. Piper also adored her Aunts, Uncles, and cousins in Ohio; Deanna Berling, Amy and Emily; Donna and John Pierce, Austin and Matthew. Special Great Aunt Wendy and Uncle Steve Cole, of Maine and Florida, and their children and grandchildren, will miss Piper crashing their house on vacations; exotic locales were never on her mind, Maine and Florida suited her just fine! Piper also loved spending time with her Great Aunt Vicky of Greenville, Maine, who was always willing to take part in Piper's shenanigans. She was predeceased by her father William E. Moore, formerly of Fairfield, Ohio. The family would also like to acknowledge the wonderful staff of UVA Children's Hospital. Piper spent more than two years of her life in a 10Ã-12 hospital room, and in a room that small the people around you are important! She looked at the Doctors, nurses, PCTs, RTs, housekeepers and dining staff as part of our family. She also dearly loved Dr. Deborah Froh, and Lauren Ahrens, her CF team. Piper was always excited to see everyone, and had been known to cry when it was time for discharge. At her request, there will be a party celebrating Piper's life on Saturday Nov. 5, 2016 from 4 pm â€" until, at the Liberty High School cafeteria. Please do not dress up or wear black, flaunt your favorite colors or sarcastic tee-shirts. She detested dressing up and loved tees with witty slogans! In lieu of flowers, please donate in her name to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. They continue to fund exciting research that helped to prolong her life. Arrangements by Burch-Messier Funeral Home, Bedford, 540-586-7360.
