Margaret ‘Peg’ Moore

Margaret ‘Peg’ Moore

Margaret ‘Peg’ Moore, a longtime South Whidbey resident who had relocated to Covington, Ga. to be close to her daughter and grandkids, passed away peacefully on June 8.

Peg was born in Chicago, Ill., on January 5, 1939, to Thomas and Frances Flood.

The family moved to Long Beach, Calif. where she graduated from St. Anthony High School and attended nursing school.

Peg met her husband, Harold Moore, and married him in 1960.

They traveled the world and eventually settled in Clinton on Whidbey Island, where they built their home and farm. They raised their children Nora and Shawn.

She enjoyed the island life and its community. She found joy in gardening, canning and sewing, which she loved to share and give as gifts.

She helped at the voter polls, Pregnancy Aid, substitute teaching at the local schools and helping at the Island County Fair where she officiated the 4-H horse competitions.

At the fair, she also liked to participate, showing her finest sewing projects as well as special canned goods.

Family was very important to Peg. She is survived by her loving children, Shawn and Nora; her grandkids, Jessica and Anthony; her loving brother, Tom Flood, his wife, Jill, their children Tom, Tim and Kelly King and their spouses; and great-nieces and nephews. She also leaves behind countless friends and family members she has met throughout the years here and abroad.

We know that Peg is at peace now next to her loving husband.

Please join her family for a celebration of life at 1 p.m. on July 6 and St. Hubert Church in Langley. There will be a small reception to follow in the parish hall.

A private burial will take place at the Langley Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the St. Jude Hospital or Wounded Warrior Project.
