Jean M. “Jeannie” (Danz) Moore, age 88, of Newark, DE, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on Monday, March 21, 2022.
Born in Lancaster, PA on October 1, 1933, she was a daughter of the late Paul C. and Anna (Duschl) Danz. Known as “Jeannie”, she grew up in Lancaster, PA and attended St. Joseph’s Academy. Besides raising six children, Jeannie worked as administrative assistant at the Delaware Commission on Women and at the Bank of New York, retiring in 1995.
Jeannie was a gregarious, big-hearted, woman who was well loved by everyone she touched. She loved her husband, kids and grandkids fiercely; Jeannie was a vocal supporter at her son’s and grandson’s ice hockey and baseball games and was known as “Coach” of the “Wilmites”, her son’s street hockey team. In her later years Jeannie loved to travel and did several trips with her kids to Germany, Australia, Arizona, Alaska and Bolivia. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
In addition to her parents, Jeannie was preceded in death by her loving husband, Henry “Chub” Moore, a Korean War Veteran and native of Millersville, PA. She is survived by her 6 beloved children, Dennis, Deborah Winkles, Donna Cooley, Doug, Dean, and Donald; 12 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; sister, Mary Louise Freidly; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Tammy and I wish peace, comfort and love to your family in this time of loss.

Jeannie is the star of many of my memories of growing up on Vassar Drive, and she will live always in my heart beside Chub.

Terry & Denise Kennedy
So sorry to hear of Jeanie’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers for Jeanie and all the family during this stressful time. Terry and Denise
It was such a pleasure meeting her as a devoted and loving grandmother. I first met her in her role as a kind neighbor, and today I realize that she was another friend’s beloved aunt. Truly a lady who shone her light in many directions. Best wishes to all the family who cherished her.
Jeanie was a very kind lady whom I enjoyed in my senior year of high school, spent many of my days at the Moore’s house it was the best place to be for me with Jeannie being there and so laid back as well as my friend Tammy Miller and most of the Wilmites coming and going. I have so many fond memories of that warm and welcoming household. I will always remember my romantic spaghetti dinner with Dean that Jeannie prepared and Donald was our server 🥰. My heart is full of love, prayers and sympathy for the Moore family. Jeannie is at peace with Chub.
My deep condolences to Jennie’s family. I have many happy memories as I recall the years we, (the Weinachts) lived across the street from the Moores. May you all hold your memories close to your hearts, as you go through this difficult period of the loss of your loving mother and grandmother.

That smile…that laugh. Mrs. Moore will always be at the heart of my memories of growing up on Vassar Drive. Despite having six children of her own, Mrs. Moore always welcomed the neighborhood kids into her home. She showed a generosity of spirit that made us all feel loved and welcome. I absolutely adored her sassy and bright sense of humor. I will never forget when she allowed us all to host a spooky haunted house in her home…and her holiday parties for the kids were legendary. She and Chub raised six wonderful children. To Donna and all of her family, I send heartfelt condolences and am forever grateful that your mom and dad treated me as one of their own; I am the better for it. I wish you courage and peace in the difficult days ahead…and I cherish the spirit of your mom that lives on in each of you.
I am so glad I was able to join the Moore family & friends today for Jean Moore’s Celebration of Life. She was a very special woman & she has a beautiful family. Your tremendous love for her & each other will get you through this difficult time. My deepest condolences to all of you. Rest in peace Jean Moore & may you find my Mother up or out there & again share morning cigarettes & coffee. ❤🌹
