Gloria LaRayne Moore

July 14, 1954 — April 25, 2024

Gloria LaRayne Moore was born on a hot summer morning July 14th, 1954, to Frank Llyn and Violet Lee Moore in Salt Lake City, Utah. She had two sisters, Sylvia (Michael McManus) and Patricia Bradford (deceased). She went to Onequa Elementary, Jackson Junior High, and West High School, where she was the co-editor of the school literary magazine, West Winds. She won top honors in the Utah State Poetry Festival. She went to the University of Utah and graduated Magna Cum Laude. She worked for 25 years at Head Start. She was wicked smart, funny, and a wonderful writer. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and held many callings. She married Jim Anderson (later divorced). She had a wonderful, kind family who have been so helpful during the fight with cancer: Rachel (David and Noah Klemens), Natalie (Trent, Keira, Andrew, and Faith Evans), Katie Anderson (Max and Lily), Megan (Matthew, James, Joshua, and Leigh Thompson). She had several nieces and nephews and many very close friends that she loved dearly. Gloria died peacefully on Thursday April 25th, 2024. Her family would like to thank Applegate Hospice for all of the care and support over the last several months.
