Sue Ann (Drake) Moore

September 30, 1946 ~ October 15, 2022 (age 76) 76 Years Old


Sue Ann Moore, resident of Mt. Croghan, SC and absolute legend, passed away unexpectedly, Saturday, October 15, 2022. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, October 22, 2022, at Davis Funeral Service Chapel in Monroe at 2:00PM. The family will receive friends at Davis Funeral Service in Monroe, NC from 1:00PM until prior to the service.

Sue Ann, Sue, Susie Q, Mom, Nanny and Aunt Sue were all names she answered to in her life. Sue was born on September 30, 1946, in Charleston, WV, the daughter of Shirley (Shoat) Drake and Sylvia (Sib) Canterbury Drake. Susie was one of ten, close-knit siblings. She was retired from CMC Union/Atrium Health after 25+ years as a pharmacy technician.

She is survived by children Tami Groves (Clark), Brian Moore (Rene’), Debbie Burd (Darryl), Vicki Hill, and Mary Moore. Grandchildren Kendra Brown (Greg), Colleen Sweatt (Jon), Michelle Hutchings (Chris), Mallory Melendez (Elijah), Abbie Boggs (Bailey), Katie Burd, Dio Moore, Morgan Burd, and Ainsleigh Bruce and great-grandchildren Jack, Amelia, Beau, Bishop, Taya, Jasper, Nova, EJ, Walker, and Je’Ana. Surviving siblings include Larry Tate, JC Tate (Nancy), John Drake (Rose), Shay Drake, Mary Goff (Dale), Randy Drake (Rita), Sandy Goad (Tom), Judy Moles, and Kim Moles (Chuck). She was also an honorary Mom and Nanny to countless others.

Sue loved her family with all her heart. She was an avid reader. In her lifetime she read thousands of books and loved to share them with various friends and family. She was a music lover and her tastes ranged from classical to rock. She particularly enjoyed rocking out to Def Leppard, windows down, music turned up. Sue loved shiny jewelry, ramps, cornbread, her family, the WV Mountaineers, vintage glass, and yard sales. Not necessarily in that order.

Sue was witty, sarcastic, wicked smart, tenacious, and mischievous. She had a beautiful smile and will be desperately missed by all who were privileged to know her.

Sue was preceded in death by her husband, James E Moore, Sr, stepson James E Moore Jr. (Jim), daughter, Sarah Jean Marez, and granddaughter Alexandria Nicole Moore.

Memorials may be made to the Literary Council of Union County, 216 N Hayne Street, Monroe, NC 28112.
