Margaret Ann Moon

Margaret Ann Moon, 100 years young, died peacefully on September 14, 2020. She was residing at Dogwood Village, Orange, Va. She was born in Appomattox County, Va., the daughter of William Archer Moon and Mattie Ethel Martin.

She was predeceased by her older brother, the Rev. William Archer Moon Jr., who died in 2010, and by her younger brother, Roy Allen Moon, who died in 2018. She is survived by numerous cherished nieces and nephews, and many cousins in the county.

Margaret worked as a cook and baker for Appomattox County School District for 30 years. She was highly regarded by friends, school children, and family members-and decades of Farm Bureau and county fair competition judges-for her outstanding pies and baked goods. After retirement, she began a new legacy of making baby quilts and other sewing crafts, which continue to grace the homes of family and friends throughout the country. Margaret will be dearly missed.

I loved talking to Margaret. As my 1st cousin, we met periodically and talked about our ancestors. I learned a lot about my grandparents and great grandparents from Margaret. She was such a kind and caring person. I still have potholders that she made and gave to me. I will treasure them even more now. Even though she had moved away from Appomattox and I didn’t see her anymore, I will still miss her a lot. I believe I will see her again, so that is comforting. To her immediate family, I am so sorry for your loss.

I have precious memories of Miss. Moon while attending the little school at Spout Spring in the 1960's. She was a special person in so many ways. I am so very fortunate to have had the pleasure of such a wonderful person in my childhood memories. To her family, I know you will find comfort in all the fond memories you share.
