Mary “Elene” Moore, age 88, of Pinellas Park, FL passed away on Saturday, July 28, 2018 at the Excel Care Center in Tampa.

Elene was born June 11, 1930 in Homestead, FL, the daughter of Luther and Edna Strickland. Elene graduated from Homestead High School and received her RN training at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Jacksonville, FL. She married Ernest in 1952 and continued to work (while raising 3 children) as a nurse until 1978. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, an active gardener with the proverbial green thumb, and a prolific master of needlecraft. In 1988, Elene and Ernest moved to Pinellas Park where she was a long-time volunteer with Hospice – all while continuing her ongoing effort to master the New York Times crossword puzzles. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ernest Moore. Survivors include her sons, Michael (Honey) and Daniel (Mary) Moore; daughter, Janice (Rick) Estes; sister, Louise Wilson; grandchildren, Ashley (Jim) Marques, Adele (Tom) Yonchak, Molly (Lane) Miller, Aaron (Paula) Moore, Holly (Rick) Hebert, and Benjamin and Sam Estes; and 11 great-grandchildren.

Those we love don't go away...they walk beside us every day. They are unseen...and unheard...but always near...still loved, still missed...and very dear. Judy and I send our most sincere condolences to Elene's family.

To my favorite Aunt! I always enjoyed your company throughout my life, and by the Sovereign Grace of God, the atonement of our Saviour Jesus Christ, and the regeneration of the Holy Spirit, I know that we will once again continue our fellowship -- in the not too distant future . Prayers for comfort and peace to all the family. With love from your nephew, Greg.
