Fay Eileen Moore

August 19, 1919 -
May 1, 2014

Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Fay Eileen Moore was the fourth and youngest child of Willie Mae and Lee Reeder. Fay received many honors as a student at Brackenridge High School, where she was selected as "Most Intellectual Girl," and at Southwest Texas College (now Texas State University) in San Marcos, Texas. Afterward, she and her husband, Wesley Dean Moore, moved to the Los Angeles area and started a family. In 1950 they settled in Palos Verdes Estates, where she, Wes, and their three sons resided for many years.
During the time her children were growing up, Fay held various positions at an elementary school. Later, she was a member of a professional writing group, and she penned a number of articles that found publication in the Palos Verdes Daily Breeze. For many years she belonged to Las Mariquitas, a women's organization dedicated to community projects. Fay was an active, longtime member of The Neighborhood Church in Palos Verdes.
An avid reader of books and current publications over the years, Fay maintained a lively intellectual interest in scientific developments and world affairs. Athletic throughout her life, she played tennis into her early eighties. When she could no longer be out on the court, she enjoyed walking near the ocean. For the past five years she resided in the San Diego area.
Wesley Moore passed away in 1997. Fay is survived by her three sons: Dean, a chartered financial consultant, who lives with his wife, Jeanie, in San Diego; Carl, an artist and cartoonist, who lives in Lomita, California, and his partner Trillë Davies; and Loren, a retired executive for VISA, who lives in Mill Valley, California, with his wife, Kate. Other survivors include her four grandchildren (Lisa Moore, Lora Moore, Kevin Moore, and Allison Moore), six great-grandchildren (Ashley and Alexandra Bertz, Margaret and Mitchell Huckaby, David and Daniel Ruelas), and nieces Ruth Reeder Allen and Penny Reeder Smith. Fay will be greatly missed by her family, as well as new friends from Grossmont Gardens and old friends from Palos Verdes, especially former neighbors who were like a second family.
Services will be held at The Neighborhood Church, 415 Paseo Del Mar, Palos Verdes Estates, on Friday, May 23, at 2 PM. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Neighborhood Church. Friends and relatives may sign a guest book online at www.LegacyFuneralCare.com. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
