Reta Moore Obituary
April 2, 1925-June 15, 2017
Reta Shepard Moore went peacefully to be with the Lord on Thursday, June 15, 2017, at the age of 92. Reta was born in Caribou, Maine. She moved west with her husband, Bill, and lived many years in Claremont, California before moving to Riverside in her later years. She loved her family dearly and could be found at swim meets and volleyball games cheering them on. She loved reading and education and could always be found with a book in hand! After raising her kids, she obtained nursing and social work degrees. She was employed at San Antonio Community Hospital in Upland, CA, where she loved helping people, volunteering long after she retired. Her greatest joy was giving to others.
Reta was preceded in death by her parents, Watson and Laura Shepard of Caribou, Maine, and by her beloved husband, William C. Moore (Bill). She is survived by her sister, Peggy Lovely of Connecticut; children Dr. William S. Moore (Carol), Susie Kane (John) and James Moore (Andi); grandchildren William O. Moore (Liza), Kelsey Moore, Dr. Brian Haas (Brandi), Justin Haas, Megan Babin (Travis) and Karli Quezada (Andrew); and great- grandchildren Kayden Haas and Boden Babin.
The family would like to thank Raincross of Riverside and Bridge Hospice for the loving care that was given to our mother. She appreciated each and every one of you! A graveside service will be held to celebrate Reta's life at Riverside National Cemetery, on Thursday, July 6 at 10. Flowers and cards may be sent to Arlington Mortuary.
