1943 Peggy 2022

Peggy Jane Moore

July 29, 1943 — August 4, 2022

Terry, MS

 

 

 

Peggy Jane Dodd was born on July 29, 1943 to Bill and Sue Dodd. Bill was a Chief Master Sergeant in the Air Force, which meant Peggy moved around a lot. A LOT. Florida, Georgia, Washington, The Philippines, and Newfoundland were all places she called home at one point. Her senior year of high school saw three different schools. She married the love of her life, Delton Moore, in 1967.

 

She put nursing school on hold with the birth of her first child, Delton Montie Moore, Jr. in 1970, but went back to get her Associates in Nursing in 1988 when Montie graduated high school. She was a talented and proud RN. She worked in both the well-baby nursery at the hospital and in home health, both of which she excelled at. It was nearly impossible to take a drive without her pointing down a street and saying, “I had a patient that lived down there.”

 

Her true talent though was as a mom. She was always there for her sons and, by extension, their friends. Peggy loved her family. She was as talented in the kitchen as any chef in the country and probably more so. She showed love through cooking and caring for people. Peggy also loved the Saints and Mississippi State football.

 

She is survived by her sons, Montie Moore (Kelly) of Morton and Dodd Mitchell Moore (Natalie) of Baton Rouge. Montie’s son, Keeton and Mitchell’s daughter, Madelyn will miss their Gigi dearly. Her surviving siblings are Patsy Reese of Cleveland and Anthony Dodd of Madison. The family she made was so loving that Shane Moore adopted the family in 1993 and has been like a son ever since.
