A devoted Wife, Mother, and Gaga

Ruth "Ruthie" (Mifsud) Moore, age 67, passed away on December 30, 2019 after a courageous battle with lung cancer. She was the beautiful daughter of the late Francis and Norma Mifsud.

She is survived by her loving husband, Jim Moore, daughter, Dina Moore, and granddaughter, Ella Jones, the light of her life. She is also survived by four brothers, Philip Mifsud of Ariz., Jerry (Linda) Mifsud, Joseph (Joann) Mifsud, Francis (Nancy) Mifsud, and a sister in law, Carmie Moore. She is also survived by her many nieces, nephews, and cousins, and her special cousin, Chris (D'Aurora) Scutella, as well as many very dear friends.

In addition to her parents, Ruth was preceded in death by her granddaughter, Gia Marie Moore, whom she is now holding in heaven, her mother-in-law, Agatha (Voto) Moore, and sister-in-law, Mary (Yezzi) Mifsud.

Ruth grew up in Little Italy and attended St. Paul School. She was a 1970 Graduate of Academy High School. Ruth was employed for 31 years by the City of Erie and retired in 2016. For many years, she played on the Womens Monday Night Bocce League. She was the promoter and coordinator for Elvis and Moore for 25 years. She was involved in her West 25th Street Neighborhood Club for 30 years, Little Italy Ladies Club, and Breakfast Club, with some of the best friends a lady could ask for who will miss her dearly.

Ruth was an amazingly strong woman. She loved her daughter and granddaughter more than any words could ever describe. She was considered the matriarch of her family. Ruthie put everyone before herself, she was selfless. Her smile and laugh could fill a room. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed making her delicious Sunday sauce and meatballs. She did for all without question. She made every holiday magical. She will be missed by all that knew her, especially her loving family.

To all the Mifsuds and Moores. I am so sorry I didn't learn about Ruthie until Saturday while at the Nuova Aurora. I can't tell you how terrible I feel. I heard people were jammed in waiting to see her as it should be. She always had a hug for me when I saw her. She will be sorely missed. Verry sorry for your loss. May GOD be with you in your healing. Joe Lucente and family.

Dearest Jim, Dina, Ella, and the Mifsud family:

Ruthie was truly a special person on earth! I believe that God sent her to me when I needed a friend and someone to help me through some difficult times. As I got to know her I witnessed her gift with many others that came into her life. She had the greatest gift of all in life and that was unconditional love. Ruthie was unconditional love. Although she will be greatly missed, I am forever thankful for having the privilege of knowing her and spending time with my friend. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time. Love you Ruthie!

Jimmy, Dina and family...you have our deepest sympathy and our in our prayers. Ruthie was a wonderful woman who always had a smile on her face. She is now up in Heaven with the other members of the West 25th Street gang who have gone before her, enjoying the eternal blessings of a life well lived. I can hear her and Joni laughing from here. May she rest in eternal peace and may she provide strength and guidance to all of us.

Terry and I cannot express the sadness our heart's feel knowing we will never see our friend again! Ruthie wasn't just "our friend", she was everyone's friend. Loved, by so many people, she made each person feel they were special to her, and loved by her! This is a woman that didn't have a mean bone in her body. She always gave to others...and that made her happy to do so! As everyone knows,
Jimmy was the love of her life, the bond between the two of them was like no other! Her beautiful daughter Dina, and the light of her life "Ella", both were her two shinning stars. I believe we have "Angels" on this earth that do good for others. I believe my friend Ruthie was one of those Angels! It has been a pleasure to have a friendship with Ruthie for many years, she has left an imprint in both our hearts that will last forever.~~ Our deepest sympathy to Jimmy, Dina,and Ella. Remember she is just a breath away, and always will be with you. Someday we all will meet her again ! Much love to each of you, Penny and Terry Krebs

To Ruthie's family my deepest sympathy to you as we all mourn our dearest Ruthie. She was more than a friend as she became embroiled in your family and invited you to share hers. She had my back and taught me many things. With class and grace to the very end, her last lesson to me was how to let her go. I will miss her huge heart and smile and twinkle in her eyes. RIP my friend.

Words cannot explain the feeling of sadness when we heard of Ruth's passing. Anyone who has the pleasure of knowing the Moore family knows the loving bond they shared. The kindness, strength and unconditional love of your wife, mother and grandmother will live on through all of you. Dina the love she shared with you carries on with your devotion to your students. You were our guarding angel. May Ruth to rest in eternal peace. Fly high on angels wings.
