Marian J. Moore, 87, known by Jean to those who knew her best, passed away peacefully on March 21, 2017 in her daughter's home in Minerva.
A daughter of the late Oliver and Eva Long, she was born June 5, 1929 in Carroll County. She worked as a registered nurse for over 30 years, but her greatest joy was being a homemaker and caring for her husband and five children; then later spending time with her grandchildren and attending their activities.
Jean was a member of the Carrollton Garden Club, Carroll County VFW Auxiliary, and was a member of T.O.P.S. for many years, where she spent Thursday nights with a group of women she loved like sisters. She was also a member of Harsh Memorial Church in Harlem Springs and the United Methodist Women. While she was still able, Jean loved serving in her church by playing the organ on Sunday mornings. While her loved ones grieve her loss, we are comforted in knowing she trusted Jesus Christ as her Savior.
Jean was preceded in death by her husband and the love of her life, Paul "Bill" Moore, whom she shared almost 61 years with.
She is survived by two sons, William (Denise) Moore and Richard (Lisa) Moore; three daughters, Cheryl (Dave) Quinter, Debra (Robert) Bechtel, and Donna (Steve) Zwahlen; grandchildren, Alyssa, Christopher, Shelby, Anna, Paul, Jimmy, Jessica, Ryan, and Derek; great-grandchildren, Macy, Tanner, Damien, and Mason; brother, Merle (Sue) Long; and several nieces and nephews.
Along with her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by a brother Carl "Bob" Long.
A special thank you to Tonia and Mandy of Crossroads Hospice for the compassion and professionalism.
