RICHMOND — Betty C. Moore, 73, of Richmond, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2016, at Hospice House in Auburn after a short battle with cancer.

Betty loved playing the slot machines and taking trips to Oxford Casino, Hollywood Slots, and Foxwoods with her family. Her family was her life. She especially loved caring for her own grandchildren at her daycare.

She was predeceased by her husband, Raymond

Moore.

She is survived by her children Greg, Jeff, Debra, Kimmy and Dianna; many wonderful grandchildren, and special great-grandchildren.

At her request, there will be no services at this time, however, a graveside service will be announced later in the spring.
