Delores Jean Moore, age, 82, of Butler, Missouri passed away at the Butler Center on Saturday, October 30, 2021. Delores was born the daughter of Gordon and Geneva Edmonds Cable on March 30 1939 at Independence, Missouri. She earned a BS degree in education from Central Missouri State University. Over the years Delores worked as a school teacher, office worker, restaurant owner and dry cleaner owner. Delores would like to be remembered as one for whom her faith was important and practiced her beliefs daily. Her friends would remember her as very energetic in her times of good health. She was creative as a musician earlier in life and enjoyed singing as well as she could throughout all her years. Her life-long dream was to own and operate her own business and she was successful in starting two businesses. One was a small restaurant and the other a dry-cleaners.
She enjoyed a number of deep friendships and would want those friends to know she valued being with all of them. Those would be among her most precious memories. She would say she had a "debt of gratitude" for their help and encouragement in her difficult times.
Delores was preceded in death by her parents, and husband, Darrel W. Moore. She is survived by a son, Matthew Wayne Howe, a brother, James C. Cable and wife, Marlene.
