Ms. Hattie Mae Moore, age 79 of Carrboro, NC transitioned into eternal rest on Saturday, January 08, 2022, at her residence.
It is with profound sadness, we announce the passing of Hattie Moore, our loving and devoted grandmother, mother, and friend. She left us while sleeping peacefully at her home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in her 79th year of life.
She was born on November 19, 1942.in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to the Late Robert Edwards Sr. and Odessa Tuck. She graduated from Lincoln High School in 1963.
Mom was a member of First Baptist Church. She met and married Donnie Moore in 1972. If you asked a hundred people who Hattie was, a few qualities you would hear would be about her listening ear and big heart, loud, but to Hattie and her loved ones, her biggest role was that of a family woman, mother, and adored grandmother. She loved her son and grandson in every way, and she announced it to everyone. She was always in a positive mood, and she was a real black woman. She was strong and bold and didn't take much from anyone! She was the best support system that anyone could have. She had several family and friends that would call her to talk about anything at any time. She cooked and would call on everyone's birthdays and every holiday and send cards and her voice was unique you could tell it in a crowd of people. But mostly, she had a big heart for her family, and she would go out of her way to do anything for them. Also, she had Great Love for her great-grandkids. They spent summers with her and helped with various chores. You couldn't turn her TV unless it was me or my dad. She watched the news all day. She also enjoyed her Soap Operas. She never missed any of my sports games and she would come to get me from school when I was sick or had a fever and take me straight home from class. She told me what to do when I was sick, and my kids weren't feeling well. She knew how to run a family and how to keep two powerful men intact.
She was preceded in death by her husband; Donnie Moore and brother; Herman Edwards.
She leaves to cherish her memories a son; Orlando Edwards, Sr, four great-grandkids; Malachi, Kameron, Karter, and Lily, four sisters; Barbara Ivey, Georgia Revels, Pinky Revels, Virginia Edwards, two brothers; Robert Edwards, Jr. and Joe Edwards, two sisters-in-law; Dorothy Moore, Pauline Edwards, several of special nieces and nephews, her dear friends and several surrogate family and friends.
