Tribute & Message From The Family

North Easton---Bennie Alice (Warrick) Moore, aged 100, was born on October 2,1920 in Dallas, Texas. She was the daughter of Charles Lee and Thelma (Young) Warrick and the devoted wife of Douglas L. Moore for 41 years, prior to his death in 1984. She graduated from North Dallas High School and met Doug at a USO dance during WWII and married three months later. After the war they eventually moved to Massachusetts, where they raised their family among many of her husband's kin in the Brockton area.

She is survived by her four children: D. Wayne Moore (Joanne); Virginia Murray (John); Robert Moore (Kathy); and Betty Oyster (Don). She was predeceased by her sister, Virginia Lynch, and three grandchildren, John (Jay) and Doug Moore and Glenn Miller. She also leaves behind Cherie Moore and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, brothers and sisters-in-laws, and nieces and nephews, locally and in Texas.

Bennie was a strong, kind, wise and faithful woman who was devoted to her family, her church, and her summers in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, where she managed the gift shop at the family's Cabbage Island Clambakes and welcomed guests to the island. Everyone who met her loved and respected her. She instilled self-reliance, courage, integrity and a strong work ethic in her family. She passed away on Patriot' s Day, a fitting tribute to one from the "greatest generation."

We join with so many others who knew Bennie in offering our deepest sympathy to all on her passing.
Bennie will always be remembered in our family as such a loving and caring person. We enjoyed every moment whenever we met and shared time with Bennie.
Bennie always sent a holiday card with a special message each year; cherished moments shared and precious to receive.
We remember meeting her as she brought a friend grocery shopping; I think we talked and laughed for over in hour in the parking lot, always a pleasure to speak with Bennie that time escaped us.
Sharing a cup of tea while visiting always highlighted our day and made it a special.

Thankfully, we were Blessed with so many shared conversations and beautiful moments over many years during her well-lived life and each will remain in our hearts always.

May you find peace and comfort in knowing that her loss is felt by all who knew and loved her, and our hearts go out to all of you, for such a great loss, to family and friends.

We are so sorry for your loss. We are pleased that Scott became a member of a wonderful family with Bennie at the helm. It has been such a pleasure to get to know her and spend time with her. We loved to sit and talk with Bennie, she was full of wisdom and spunk. And and little bit of Southern too. Sending our love and hugs to all the Moore family,
