Rachel Mary's Story
Rachel Mary Moore, 75, born on February 10, 1942, who was predeceased by her parents, Beatrice (Jalbert) and Edwin I. Moore of Lowell and Dracut, passed away on the morning of October 11, 2017, from complications of C.O.P.D.
Rachel lived most recently in Lawrence at Diamond Spring Gardens. She is survived by her sister, Barbara M. Choquette, and brother-in-law, Albert L. Choquette, both of North Andover; her brother, Frank Moore, and sister-in-law, Eliese Moore, both of Nashua, N.H. Rachel is also survived by her niece, Allyson Paige A. Choquette, and her nephew, Jonah E. Choquette, both of Dover, N.H., and nephews, Julian Moore of Clinton, Mass., and Jonathan Moore of Nashua, N.H.
Rachel attended Lowell High School and Salem State College where she earned a degree in Psychology. She also attended Northern Essex Community College where she earned her Licensed Practical Nursing Certificate, also earned her nursing degree and then became a Registered Nurse.
She worked in the accounting department at the IRS until she went back to school to become a nurse. Rachel worked with the elderly at several nursing homes in Lawrence as an R.N., and did private duty as an R.N. through a nursing service.
Rachel was a very creative person. She loved all kinds of art, especially sketching, photography, embroidery and quilting. She also loved to travel and loved the ocean and did enjoy shopping and all kinds of music, especially The Eagles.
Rachel was a very spiritual person, always reading and searching for a deeper meaning in life. On the lighter side, she also enjoyed reading mysteries and doing puzzles with her friends at Diamond Spring Gardens in the library with Alice, Florence and Cecile to mention a few. Rachel will be missed so much by her family and friends.
Also at this time, the family would like to thank all those who worked closely with Rachel during her illness, her doctors who kept her going by their care and concern for her. Also, we thank the many helpers from Elder Services, her case manager Sara from United Health Care, the Right At Home aides, Carmen, Milagros and Alba. The excellent team from Merrimack Valley Hospice Services were invaluable the family, especially Amy who visited several times a week, and nurse Sheila who readily shared her knowledge, expertise and caring spirit with us. Rachel was very fortunate to have had so many wonderful people offering help and caring comfort during this time.
There will be no calling and services will be private. Memorial contributions may be made to Merrimack Valley Hospice Services.
