Obituary

Shirley Lee Moore was born on July 12, 1948, in Sumter County, Alabama, to Arthur and Birdie (Watson) Campbell. For growth and opportunity, very early in life, the family migrated to St. Louis, Missouri. 

Shirley attended Soldan High School for four years, where she met the love of her life and husband, James Moore. To their union a family was born: Keith Moore, Tanya Moore, and a step-daughter, Carla Lartedale.  Her husband, James, and son, Keith, preceded her in death.  

Shirley had a huge heart with enough love for everyone she encountered. From homemaker to career woman, she touched many lives. She began employment with the Chrysler Corporation, where she worked for the next twenty-eight years until retirement. After retirement, there was no time to waste, for it was now time to embrace family and friends.

Shirley and the family planned one to three trips every year, creating millions of memories and footprints of happiness. She equally enjoyed throughout her life a good social game of cards, bowling, bingo, and the casino. 

Shirley was a true believer in Christ, and in early 2000, she was baptized at  Faith Miracle Temple Church. Shirley was a high achiever. Before long, she went back to school, where she graduated and achieved a diploma as a Medical Assistant.

Late on July 15, 2020, before midnight, angels descended from heaven, although we couldn’t see them. I imagined angels dressed all in white, with huge white wings, slowly opened the all white, iron gates. Each angel had a brass trumpet. The trumpets sounded, and a white chariot draped in all types of the finest white cloths and materials, with white horses, descended to her bedside. At the moment, they draped Shirley in all white garments before ascending  to heaven, gone from our sight but never from our memories.  

Shirley leaves to cherish her memories: one daughter, Tanya (Jevons) Moore; one step-daughter, Carla Lartedale; a loving boyfriend, Walter West; six grandchildren, James Moore, Keith Moore, Jr., Tyrell Moore, Kayla Moore, Keyanna Moore, and Cierra Smith; six great-grandchildren; three brothers, Charles Campbell (Vickie), Arthur Campbell, Jr., and Terry Campbell; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
