MOORE, Linda, "Gentle Breeze," went to be with the Ancestors on September 26, 2021, at the age of 65. She was preceded in death by her father, WWII Army Veteran William B. Moore; and former husband, Richard Kennard of Deltaville, Va. She is survived by her mother, Mildred Moore; her sister, Debora Moore; her brothers, Glenn Moore, Jeff Moore, Kirk Moore; and many cousins and extended family. Linda was a proud member of the Pamunkey Indian Tribe in King William Virginia and lived on the reservation most of her adult life. She spent many years advocating for Indigenous women's rights and studied the art of traditional Powhatan pottery, where she won numerous awards at various art shows in the state of Virginia. Linda graduated college in the 1980s with a degree in Criminal Justice and served in the capacity of security officer on to private investigator. She was kindhearted and known as a woman that would help anyone in need. She never knew a stranger and made many friends easily. Her life is a testimony to her strong faith and we find great comfort in knowing that she is now at peace with The Creator. There will be a graveside memorial ceremony held on Saturday, October 16, at 1 p.m. at the Pamunkey Indian Baptist Church Cemetery, 1308 Pocahontas Trail, King William, Va. 23086 on the Pamunkey Indian Reservation.
