Obituary Condolences

MOORES, Glenda Hamilton

Glenda Hamilton Moores departed this life on March 9, 2014 into Heaven to be with Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. At the time of her passing she was in the care of Hospice of Palm Beach after a lengthy hospital stay in Jupiter Medical Center and JFK Medical Center. Glenda was born in Amba, KY on April 14, 1939 to the late Virgil and Oma Hamilton and raised in Floyd and Pike counties, Kentucky. She graduated from Pikeville High School in 1957 and Eastern Kentucky University in 1960 with a degree in Home Economics. She met and married her husband of 55 years, Donald Moores, while a student at EKU. After graduation she taught school for one year. Her husband's acceptance of a new job sent her to Quincy, IL where she became a Dietician at Blessing Hospital. She ultimately became Head Dietician. A job transfer sent the young family to California for several years. Over the years job transfers took her to several states in this great country, which she loved tremendously. Upon moving to Florida, her last move, she was employed as the Sales Coordinator for the Custom Decorating Department of J. C. Penney in West Palm Beach. For many years Glenda was active in the Ladies Social Sorority, Beta Sigma Phi, in 2014 becoming a fifty year member. In 1992, she became active in Amara Shriners activities and supported the Ladies organizations of Amara Shriners, Palm Beach Gardens. She became the First Lady of the Association of Shrine Oriental Bands when her husband became the International President of the Association. She and her family supported the Shriner Hospitals for Children by raising money for the children in the care of the Shriners Hospitals. Glenda is survived by her devoted and loving husband, Donald Moores; her sons, Michael Moores (Rachel) and Jeffrey Moores; and her grandchildren, Christopher Moores and Samantha Moores. She is also survived by six sisters: Audrey Gae Hoffman (Charles), Geraldine Meiners (John), Georgia Bauhofer, Rita Smith (Bill), Jeanette Conn and Genevieve Howard (Lowell); two brothers: Russell Hamilton and Roger Hamilton (Sharlene); sister-in-law, Judy Elswick; many nieces and nephews; and many friends and Shriner friends locally, in the U.S. and in Canada. A memorial service will be held on April 5, 2014 at the Amara Shrine Center, 3650 RCA Blvd. Palm Beach Gardens, FL at 2:00 PM. Interment will be the Riverside Memorial Park, Tequesta, FL. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting memorial donations to the Amara Shriners Transportation Fund, P. O.
