Mary Adrienne Moore
20 abril , 1947 – 5 diciembre , 2020
Adrienne Moore, recently residing at Addington Place of Stuart, died after a brief illness on Saturday, December 5, 2020. Born in New York on April 20, 1947, she moved to the Treasure Coast in 1957 with her parents, Bill and Marie Moore.
Ms Moore graduated from St. Anastasia School in Fort Pierce and Barry College in Miami. She worked in both St. Lucie and Martin counties, spending 20 years as a news reporter working in print, radio and television, including as the Treasure Coast reporter for WPTV Channel 5. Her next 25 years were spent as the public relations development specialist at Indian River State College’s public radio station WQCS. She retired in 2007, but kept her hand in it by starting her own business assisting with media relations and special events. She was a resident of Stuart.
Ms Moore was an accredited public relations professional, as well as, a certified public relations counselor. She was a member of the Treasure Coast Florida Public Relations Association chapter for 29 years, working on multiple chapter committees, and serving four terms as chapter president. Ms Moore also presided as state president and as the Florida Public Relations Education chair. She was unanimously named a Florida Public Relations Association Life Member in 2020.
Ms Moore lent her expertise to numerous local nonprofit organizations over the years, including the Environmental Studies Council in Jensen Beach, Molly’s House in Stuart, the Zora Neale Hurston Committee in Fort Pierce, Women Supporting the Arts, and she had been a volunteer at the Kennedy Space Center for NASA Public Affairs for 11 years.
She was a friend to all, a mentor to many, with a quick and hearty laugh, ready to jump in with both feet to help whenever and wherever needed. The Treasure Coast has lost a dear and devoted friend.
A Celebration of Life for Ms Moore will be held Saturday, June 26, 2021 at 10:00 am in Fernhill Memorial Gardens, 1501 S Kanner Highway, Stuart.

My best friend for over fifty years, remembering our days at Barry where we met. We have shared many a trip, much gossip and lots of tears and laughter. We were Thelma and Louise before the movie. I will be taking care of business for you. We will be celebrating your wonderful life in 2021. May you rest now knowing that you have made a mark with a life well lived.

I will forever remember Adrienne for her grace and professionalism. She was always willing to jump in and help whenever and wherever she was needed. She also was not afraid to speak up on important issues. I think I can speak for all PR professionals who knew her that she was one to be admired and respected and set an example for all of us. She nominated me for a couple of awards, and I truly believe that her influence had a lot to do with my being honored. I will miss her smile and her laugh. May she continue to watch over us!

As a young Detective with Martin County S O, I got to know Adrienne when she showed up on a lot of our Crime Scenes. She was always laid back and would wait for us to get our jobs done before she would ask the necessary questions for her article. She would always follow up on her story and did her profession proud. I was proud to have known her and all the Retirees from MCSO enjoyed her presence at our Monthly Lunches. Rest in peace, My sincere condolences to her family

I count myself fortunate to have known Adrienne for so many years. She was just a lovely person, welcoming to all and helpful to new residents (like me) when I joined the Florida Public Relations Association, in which she was a driving force. She was a true pro in the journalistic field, and remains an inspiration to many of us. I always told her that she should write a book! Her experiences and memories were amazing. Her volunteer work was also incredible. She was instrumental in memorializing the history and importance of Zora Neale Hurston, a great writer who had not received her deserved share of attention. Adrienne made sure she got it. Adrienne, my friend, you will be greatly missed.

I am so sorry to hear that Adrienne passed away. I knew her through my association with the Florida Public Relations Association, and I can honestly say I've never met anyone easier to work with. She was always professional, funny and helpful but, most of all, kind. Adrienne was always objective and a true contributor on any project we tackled together, and it was true to form that her volunteer spirit continued even after she retired from PR. We will really miss you, Adrienne!!

Adrienne was a tremendous resource to PR professionals in Florida, particularly for those on the Treasure Coast. She was so very talented and was always willing to share her expertise. She was also a great storyteller, and could captivate audiences with tales from Stuart's history. I will always remember her warm and generous spirit!
