Shirley Jean (Mellor) Moore, went home to God on Feb 24, 2021. She was residing at Silver Square Assisted Living in Dover NH. She passed peacefully surrounded by those who loved her.
She was born June 22, 1927 in Blackstone, Massachusetts to Sarah Letitia (Robertshaw) Mellor and John W Mellor, and graduated from Blackstone High School and attended University of Massachusetts - Amherst.
In 1946, she married Paul A Moore Sr. from Swampscott, Ma. They lived in Quincy, Ma., Bennington, Vermont and when Paul and his brothers - Richard and Edward - opened Moore Bros. Ladies Sportswear, they moved to and lived for many years in Beverly, Ma..
As it had always been a goal and dream of them both, they purchased a home and lived on Rocky Shore Rd in Wolfeboro, NH.
Shirley was an active member of St. Cecilia's Church and also volunteered at Huggins Hospital. She was a very supportive and loving Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. She enjoyed gardening, beating us all at cards and creating art work. Most of all - she loved to dance - any music any day any time! Her life was dedicated to her husband and family. She loved "the lake" and her happiest memories were watching her children and grandchildren enjoy being together in the water, having family cook outs and boating.
She was predeceased by her son Paul A Moore, Jr., her husband Paul A Moore Sr. and her brothers, Jack and Robert.
She is survived by her children, Deborah Moore of North Andover, MA., Timothy Moore of Dover NH, Mark and his wife Mary Moore of Wolfeboro, NH and her daughter in law - Sue Moore - of Wolfeboro. She also leaves behind 8 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren and 3 nieces and a nephew.
