Moore, Lucile M.
The Guest Book is expired.
Mrs. Lucile M. Moore, a long-time resident of Altadena, CA for more than 50 years, and more recently a new resident of Chino Hills, CA went home to be with the Lord on 8-18-2013 with her family at her side. Lucile had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2010 and also suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis for more than 30 years. Lucile moved to Chino Hills in 2010 to be closer to her only daughter Lynne, Lynne's husband Fred and their only child Jordan-Lynne who was Lucile's only Grandchild whom she lovingly referred to as her "Queen of the Nile!"
Lucile was born in Hillsboro, Texas and was the seventh child of eight siblings born to Nina & John Jordan. Although Lucile was not the baby of the family, her 3 brothers (Anderson, wife Eunice, JB, and Ralph) and her 3 older sisters (Mavis, Zelma & Mary) all preceded her in death as did her older half-brother (Lee Anderson) as well as her loving husband Abe B. Moore, Jr., to whom she was married to for almost 61 years when he passed in April of 2007.
Lucile often joked with her daughter Lynne that she was going to try to live to the age of 100 years. However, the loss of her husband, siblings and numerous friends who preceded her in death in just the past few years, often made her feel lonely and wonder why she was still left on the earth when so many of her loved ones had gone on.
Lucile attended Peabody High School in Hillsboro, Texas where she graduated as the Valedictorian of her senior class. She then enrolled in college at Huston-Tillotson College in Austin, Texas, where she pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, following in the footsteps of her older sister Mary, and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Home Economics. It was at Huston-Tillotson that she met and later married, Abe B. Moore Jr., her husband of just over 60 years.
Lucile loved to cook, entertain, and learned to play duplicate bridge alongside her husband, Abe. They were both blessed with a wonderful time of retirement which allowed them to travel to various Bridge Conventions and Tournaments where they competed in duplicate bridge with people from all across the nation. Abe often directed several of the National Tournaments which meant Lucile would have to find herself a different partner for the game. She did not mind. She was very happy just to enjoy the time they had together traveling and playing bridge, the game they liked best.
Lucile is survived by her daughter, Lynne Moore Carter (husband Fred), her granddaughter Jordan-Lynne Carter, all from Chino, CA; Her Sister-in-law Mrs. Eunice Jordan (Anderson) of Altadena, Nephew Anderson "Butch" Jordan of Altadena, Niece Wynelle Welch of New York, Brother-in-law Raydell Moore of Pahrump, NV; Sister-in-law Bernice "Bobby" Whitfield of Las Vegas, NV, and other nieces and nephews which include: Cathy Whitfield, Jimmy Whitfield, Bryan & Brent Whitfield, Robert Moore, Willie & Ellereen Moore Jr., DeMario & DeRaymion Moore, Nina Whitten; Kimberly, Richard, Christopher & Jaden Flowers; Vincent Sloan, Andre & Michelle Jordan, Chris & John Turner, Kenya Duke Owens, Rose Marie Rowls, Ralph Jordan Jr.; Charles Davies and many more nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
She was tremendously loved by all and will be deeply missed. A private service for family and friends is planned for 8-22-2013 at Forest Lawn, Glendale.
