Cora Surratt Moore

Cora Surratt Moore, 102, of Shelby, NC passed away on Friday, February 19, 2021 at her residence. She was born on December 6, 1918 in Cleveland County, NC to the late Bryson Surratt and the late Pearlie Mae Gill Surratt.

Cora was the strongest woman we ever knew. A woman who had never been in the hospital until the age of 95 and then it was because she fell and broke her hip on her employer's porch. She was employed by the Lackey and Stone Families for 70 plus years. Cora was a member of Shoal Creek Baptist Church for many years where she enjoyed singing on the Alexander Choir. Later, she joined Canaan Memorial where she was known as the Mother of the Church. Cora was a member of the Daytime Friends at the Senior Center, where she really enjoyed crafting, painting and the fellowship with her friends. She also enjoyed doing crossword puzzles and watching game shows on tv.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by two sons, Larry Moore and Rowell Moore Jr.; one daughter, Norma Jean Little; one sister, Rovetta Dawkins, 2 brothers, Ed Surratt and Ernie Surratt; one niece, Pearl Norris; two sons-in-law, Russell Little and Kenneth Woods Sr.; two grandsons, Kenneth Woods Jr. and Eric Woods and one great-granddaughter, Courtney Brown.

Left to cherish her memories are three sons, Robert Moore (Barbara) Paul Moore (Ann) and Marshall Moore all of Shelby, N.C; three daughters, Ruby Woods of Shelby, N.C. Joyce Jefferies (Willie) of Gaffney, S.C. and Anita Jones of Detroit, Michigan; twenty-one grandchildren and a host of great and great-great-grandchildren, family and friends including her special friend Ada Powell.

She can be viewed from 9:00 AM until 11:00 AM on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at S.T. Enloe Memorial Chapel.
