Marilyn Moore

Marilyn S. Moore, 96, of Milford passed away March 19. Born in Lynn, she was the daughter of the late Jesse (Slade) and Harold Soper from Bonavista, Newfoundland.

Marilyn worked as a nurse’s aide for many years and enjoyed taking care of her patients. After retiring from health care, she worked at a local vegetable stand, becoming a friend and confidant to the regular customers. Throughout her life, she would love to bake, especially her famous marble squares for others to enjoy. Mal, as her friends called her, was an avid Red Sox fan and often was found watching a game. She liked traveling, as near as her homeland of Canada and as far as Australia. As a young mother and spouse of a serviceman, she lived in several different states, always making an impact on those she met along the way. When she moved to Countryside Healthcare in Milford at 90 years old, she continued to gather friends while enjoying reading, playing games and doing arts and crafts. Most of all, Marilyn was Nana to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was always there to hold a baby, read and sing to a toddler, and offer advice to a teenager or new parent.

Marilyn is survived by her children, Harold Moore and wife Colleen of Hopkinton, Susan Quigley of Hopkinton, Cynthia Lewis and husband Richard of Kingston, New Hampshire, Phillip Moore of Danvers, and Kimberly Smith and husband Gregory of Camden, Maine; her brother, Robert Soper and wife Linda of Londonderry, New Hampshire; her sister-in-law, Jean Soper and late husband/Marilyn’s brother Harold Soper of Lynn; her many grandchildren, Joshua Moore, Gianna Stillman, Alyssa Krebs, Matteo Moore, Jocelyn Moore, Brianna, Katherine and Daniel Quigley, Jessica Lewis, and Conor, Braden, Chandler and Riley Smith. She also leaves behind 13 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by son James Stephen Moore, former husband James Moore, grandson Jacob Moore, sister Gloria Moronie and brother-in-law Dominic.

Visitation will be held Saturday, April 6, from 10 a.m.-noon at Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton, 57 Hayden Rowe Street. A funeral home service will immediately follow at noon. Burial will be held privately at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation (t2t.org), which supports our veterans and their families.
