Linda Ruth Moore, age 68, passed away peacefully on April 20, 2023 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. During her illness, she spoke freely about her faith in God and His presence with her on her journey. She was born January 7, 1955 in Lowell, Massachusetts to Richard and Juliette Moore, both preceding her in death. She grew up and attended school in Dracut, Massachusetts, where she went on to live most of her life. For the past 40 years of her life, she enjoyed being the primary caretaker for her mother, and spent many of her days lovingly tending to her and enjoying their special bond.
Linda retired in early 2021 after a long career in the banking and mortgage industry. Although she enjoyed her work, she got the most pleasure out of the friendships that she formed with many of her co-workers and associates over the years. She never missed an opportunity to catch up with a present or past co-worker over lunch.
Linda loved to eat and her favorite thing to do in her spare time was to go out to dinner or lunch with her friends. She had an appreciation for excellent comfort food and a low tolerance for any dish that didn’t tantalize her taste buds. She loved Chinese Food, lobster pie, cheesesteaks and patty melts, and enjoyed long walks that allowed her the opportunity to burn off the calories and catch up on the latest events with friends and family. She enjoyed family gatherings and looked forward to the love and laughter that came with every opportunity to share time with her large extended family.
Linda was always up for anything at any time. A thoughtful planner, she wasn’t a spontaneous person by nature, yet she rarely turned down an opportunity to spend time with the people she loved even if it came up at the last minute. She loved Bingo, music, movies, driving to the beach, and traveling to the West Coast. She enjoyed experiencing new adventures during her travels and was particularly fond of the time she spent on Catalina Island. Her laughter lit up every room she entered, and her joyful and humble presence was felt by all who interacted with her as she moved through life.
The oldest of five, Linda is survived by a brother and wife Gary and Suzanne Moore, sister and husband Nancy & John Spada, sister Ruth Moore, and brother and wife David and Debbie Moore. She is also survived by her stepchildren, many friends, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, and her lifelong friend and sister-in-life, Carla Milhomme. All of these she loved and touched deeply.
