Lynne Keller Moore


Beloved wife, mother, and educator Lynne Keller Moore passed away unexpectedly on September 19th. Born in Winston-Salem to Walter and Anna Keller, she was the youngest of three children. She graduated from Broughton High School in 1971 and earned both undergraduate and advanced degrees from North Carolina State University. She remained a fervent Wolfpack fan the rest of her life.

Over a 33-year career in Wake County public schools, Lynne was a special programs teacher, counselor, and dean of students. She began at Carroll Middle School as one of the first special programs teachers in the district and later moved to Fuquay-Varina High School, where she was first a teacher and later a guidance counselor. She became Dean of Students at Holly Springs High School when it opened in 2007 and remained there until her passing. A fierce champion for all students, Lynne responded with insight and compassion to their varied needs. It is impossible to guess just how many lives she affected.

Beyond her work, Lynne loved her children and grandson, sports cars, big yellow Labrador Retrievers, traveling with her husband, and settling down with a good book. Recent joys in Lynne's life included the birth of her first grandchild and her son's marriage.

Lynne was predeceased by her parents, Anna Pence Keller and Walter McClellan Keller, and by her brother, Philip Niemond Keller. She is survived by her husband, Ralph Polister Moore, son Robert Keller Cauthen and wife Jeffriann Grainger, daughter Anna Lea Grace and husband Kevin, sister Nancy Hight and husband Steve, sister-in-law Lora Cauthen Busch and husband Chris, niece Shelley Wainscott Wallin, nephews George Goblet and Matthew Busch, grandson Derek Joel Grace, and faithful Labradors, Bailey and Bodie.

The family would like to thanks Dr. James Parsons of Raleigh, the neurological unit staff and doctors at Duke University Hospital, and the rehabilitative therapy team at UNC/Rex Hospital for their skill and care during Lynne's illness.

A memorial and celebration will be held at 7 pm Saturday, September 26 at the Bass Lake Retreat Center in Holly Springs. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Backpack Buddies program at the Interfaith Food Shuttle or to Peak Lab Rescue of Apex.
