Quinlyn Moore

June 27, 1935 — December 22, 2021

Quinlyn Victoria Michaels Moore, 86, passed away Wednesday, December 22, 2021. Born June 27, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Harvey Michaels, died in 1983 and Dorothy Delp Bush, died in 2003, and the wife of the late James Neely Moore, who passed away in 1993.

Quinlyn met her husband while they were both serving in the US Air Force in Texas.

Volunteering at The White Horse Academy, she taught adolescent boys how to make apple pies for their family holiday dinners. She was active with the Girl Scouts, with her daughters when they were young, and the Boy Scouts, with her grandson.

Active with The Historical Cooking Guild of Catawba Valley, she also enjoyed participating in historic living history by cooking. She volunteered with her family at many historic sites in South Carolina and North Carolina.

Never idle, her loves included cooking, baking, needlepoint, ceramics, sewing, cross-stitch, arts, crafts, traveling, learning about her family history and meeting her distant relatives. When she was young, Quinlyn loved to ride horses.

Quinlyn is survived by her daughters, Cynthia Moore Burgess and Linda Moore Smith (David), grandson, Philip Moore, all of South Carolina; step granddaughter, Lacey Smith Turner (Matthew), her brothers Frank Bush and Gregory Bush; and many nieces and nephews; and her very special friends, Bert Kleckner and Kathryn Kleckner. Along with her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her brothers, Floyd Clyde Michaels in 2021 and Harvey Michaels Jr. in 1997.
