Always so, but especially in the nearly twenty years from her original diagnosis, Moira lived a highly charged life full of adventure, activity, accomplishment and most importantly love and laughter. Moira will be very much missed and lovingly remembered by the many people she has met in her life. She was a beaming light to those that knew her; her friends, coworkers at Jewel, Price Chopper, IBM and Lenovo and especially to several lifetime friends from high school. And she was especially thankful to all the wonderful doctors and nurses that helped her battle for so long. In Moira’s words, “Experiences shared through circumstance, pain and prayer form a bond that lasts beyond a lifetime.”
A graduate of Old Town High School and DePaul University in Chicago, Moira was a very talented athlete throughout her entire life. Moira earned numerous awards and distinctions for her talents in swimming and softball including a Collegiate All America Swimming distinction. Most recently, she would play tennis with her very dear friends (and extended family) at the Weymouth tennis club and competed in the ocean swimming leg of a triathlon held last September at Nantasket Beach, MA.
