Marjorie A. Moore, 88 (March 29, 1925 – January 15, 2014), a life-long resident of Lansing, is survived by her daughter Suzanne Moore, her life-time friend Donnie Holmes, and numerous nieces and nephews and friends. She was preceded by her husband Harold A. Moore and her daughters Camille, Marjorie, and Pamela Anne Moore.
Marjorie will be most remembered for her dedicated service to the enrichment of life for the developmentally-disabled community. Her advocacy began on December 29, 1947, when she delivered her daughter, Pamela, her own developmentally-disabled child. At that time there were very few services for this community in the way of education or housing, because they were not expected to live or be able to learn. As a result, she and her husband, Harold, were among the first members of the Greater Lansing Association of Retarded Citizens, and went on to establish the Moore Living Connections, which provides housing for this community from fully-assisted to independent living throughout the state of Michigan.
The funeral service will be held at 3:00 p.m. Sunday, January 19, 2014, at the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service time at the funeral home. In remembrance of Marjorie, donations are requested to go to Moore Living Connections, 401 West Jolly Road, Lansing, Michigan 48910.
