Cherry Rickman Moore, 92, made her way through life with a strong will and work ethic

VIRGINIA BEACH — Cherry Rickman Moore, 92, died Wednesday, May 27, 2020. A native of Halifax County, she was the widow of Bruce P. Moore.

She is survived by her sister, O’Nell Haseltine; son, David Puryear; great-grandchildren, Mary Grace and Thomas Bright; and great-great-grandchild, Lillian Bright.

A tobacco farmer’s daughter, Cherry made her way through life with a strong will and work ethic, which led her from dime store clerk and factory worker to bank teller and recreational vehicle dealer.

Always exacting in her appearance, home and yard, she took pride in her old-school manners. She was thought of as a good neighbor and a good citizen with a generous heart, green thumb and a heck of a lemon pound cake recipe. She was a member of Thalia Lynn Baptist Church.

Toward the end, she was blessed by the love and care of Virgie Riddick and Aisha Terry.

Her survivors grieve and are thankful for all the memories of joy, laughter and tenderness.
