Obituary

Daisy Moore was born on June 13, 1923 in Cleveland, OH to the late James and Rose Smith. She had one sister, Katy Murdoch,

who preceded her in death. Daisy’s mother took her to Providence Baptist Church as a young child and she confessed Christ

at a young age.

She attended Sterling Elementary School, Brownel Jr. High , Kennard Jr. High and graduated from New Central High School.

As a child she recalled seeing Jesse Owens in a parade after he won the Olympics. Both of her parents passed away in the same

year that she was in High School. The ladies from Providence Baptist Church would check in on her and her sister.

Daisy was united in Matrimony with James C. Moore and from that union, they had three sons; Jimmy, Leonard and Steve.

She had an exceptional work ethic. During WWII she worked as a Riveter on airplane wings. She also worked many years on the

night shift at Republic Steel Canteen getting very little sleep but she never complained. Daisy retired from her final job at

Ameri Trust and she was very active with the Shaker Hts Senior Community Center during her retirement.

Daisy was an avid sports fan. She enjoyed watching basketball, attending ladies night at the Indians baseball game when

Larry Doby was playing, fashion, attending the Ebony Fashion Show every year, traveling and she was an excellent cook.

Daisy was one of the most loving, kind and generous people you would ever meet. She brought joy to everyone she met and

never met a stranger. She often said that God gave her three blessings, her three sons. Her sons would say that she was a blessing

and a gift from God.
