Obituary for Charlotte Herring Moore

Charlotte H. Moore
March 29, 1930 - October 5, 2018

Kinston-Charlotte Herring Moore, 88, peacefully passed away to her eternal home on Friday, October 5, 2018. The oldest of nine children, Charlotte was born March 29, 1930 to the late Oscar Herring and Katie Garris Herring.

Blessed with a heart and concern for helping others, Charlotte enjoyed a 40 year career in nursing. Her nursing career began in August of 1954 at Lenoir Memorial Hospital where her starting salary was $1.33 per hour. She retired from nursing in March of 1994. A nurse’s nurse, Charlotte was a true leader in her field and she served as a mentor to many entering the nursing field.

A master gardener, Charlotte found great pleasure in tending to her yard and flowers. She loved traveling to the beach where the worries of life always disappeared. In earlier years, she could often be found surf fishing when she was at the coast. The tug of a fish on the line would always bring a smile.

Charlotte was a member of White Oak Grove Free Will Baptist Church and the Order Of The Eastern Star.

Charlotte’s happiest moments were in her roles as mama and granny. She never missed an opportunity to spoil her granddaughters and great-granddaughter. Charlotte was deeply devoted to her family and was happiest when they all were together.

A service to remember and celebrate Charlotte’s life will be held Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Rouse Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Fairview Cemetery.

Charlotte is survived by two children, Joan Moore Howell and husband, Gary, and Ernie Moore and wife, Betty; three grandchildren, Ashliegh Minton and husband, Randy, Katie Moore, and Melissa Mann and husband, Houston; great-granddaughter, Reagen Minton; six siblings, Rachel Dawson, Lucille Dawson, Oscar Herring, Jack Herring, Jimmy Herring, and Freddie Herring; along with her cats, Spot and Tom. In addition to her parents, Charlotte was preceded in death by two sisters, Chris Broadwell and Frances Smith.
