SALEM, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Peggy Lois (Vanscoy) Moore, 90, born on November 26, 1930 in Parsons, West Virginia to the late Regina (Digman) Vanscoyand Roy Vanscoy, went to live with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, October 7, 2021. 

She lived most of her young life in Elkins, West Virginia, graduating from Elkins High School in 1948. 

She attended First Christian Church in Elkins where she found her love for Jesus. 

She married the late Theodore “Ted” Moore on October 12, 1950. They had two daughters, Debbie (Tony) Colian and Vicki (Jack) Harlan. 

After having her children, Peggy and her husband moved to Windham, Ohio, where she worked many years at Sam’s Grocery store and she never met a stranger. Peggy then worked many years in the transportation industry, she retired from Alcan Aluminum in 1996. 

Peggy enjoyed spending time with her family, her dogs, attending church and crocheting. She spent many weeks in the summer traveling back to West Virginia to see her family. She was always thinking of others. She sent cards to people daily. She was always positive and kind. She was always taking pictures and taking her oldest grandchildren to get their pictures taken at Olan Mills; the joke between them was when she moved to Salem that was what put Olan Mills out of Business.  

She was faithful in her walk, she was a member of the Braceville Christian Church, Northeast Christian Church in Warren and after moving to Salem, she is now a member of the Pine Lake Christian Church of Sebring, Ohio. She was so dedicated to her faith she always felt she must speak to everyone at the services and be the last one to walk out of the building, often leaving her husband in the car waiting for over an hour.
