BIDDEFORD—Lucia S. Moore passed away on Monday, Jan. 2, 2017 at the Monarch Center in Saco at the age of 86.

She was born on Oct. 16, 1930 in Biddeford, Maine, the daughter of Arthur and Pepin, and was married to Richard A. Moore for 61 years.

Raised in Biddeford, she graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1949. She and Richard resided on Graham Street in Biddeford for 60 years, enjoying summers at their cottage at Hills Beach, and winters in Venice, Florida after Richard retired. A homemaker, Lucia worked part time at the family store, Pepin’s Market.

Lucia enjoyed sewing, entertaining and playing cards with friends, bowled in the Hiccup Bowling League, was a member of Dutch Elm Golf Course and the Southern Maine Ladies Golf Association. She was proud of the hole-in-one she got at the York Golf and Tennis Club in 1985, as she was the only family member among avid golfers to do so.
