|Moore, Eleanor Reigle
Birth: 1924-07-08 in Winfield, Pennsylvania
|Eleanor Reigle Moore, 91, of Town Creek passed away on Tuesday, August 18, 2015 in Leonardtown, MD. Born on July 8, 1924 in Winfield, PA, she was the daughter of the late Charles F. and Edna M. Reigle of Lewisburg, PA.|
Following graduation from Lewisburg High School, Eleanor met her future husband Ralph L. Moore, Jr., of Neville Island, PA, at Bucknell University. Ralph received his Commission as a U.S. Navy officer in New York on the morning of April 26, 1945; and that afternoon he wed Eleanor for a marriage that would span 43 years. The role of Navy wife and eventually mother took Eleanor on various tours and travels within the United States and Iceland; and it also provided summer travels to several European countries. Throughout her life, she enjoyed hosting gatherings ranging from squadron and command socials, to fund raisers, bridge parties and family get-togethers.
She served as a Red Cross Volunteer, member of the Hollywood, MD, Volunteer Fire Department Ladies’ Auxiliary, President of school PTAs, and as a life member of the St. Mary’s County Garden Club. Eleanor pursued her love of flowers, at first on an amateur level and eventually refining her natural talent through study, observation, and close association with several recognized national and international floral artists. She eventually evolved as a designer very much in demand for the flower complement she provided for command functions, weddings and receptions, funerals, military clubs, store windows, and private parties. She also gave several floral design demonstrations on the East Coast and taught flower arranging at her studio in Town Creek.
Eleanor is survived by her son, Ralph Layton Moore, III, and his wife Sandra of Leonardtown, MD. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Lou Goff (Bob) and nephew Jeff Reigle (Beth) of Lewisburg, PA; her niece Barbara Marshall (Tom) of Turbotville, PA; her niece Kathy Fabo (Ray) of Fayetteville, NC; and two generations of great nieces and nephews. She is also survived by her loving caregiver of four and one-half years, Eleanor Norris of Leonardtown, MD. She is pre-deceased by her parents; her husband CDR Ralph Layton Moore, Jr., USN (Ret); and her brother Charles R. Reigle.
All services will be private. Arrangements by the Brinsfield Funeral Home, P.A.
|Butler, Mary Magdalen
Birth: 1925-03-20 in Charles County, Maryland
|Mary Magdalen Butler passed into God's hands on August 17, 2015. She was a dedicated wife, loving mother, sister, grandmother, great grandmother and great-great grandmother. She was a wonderful example of faith, hope and love. She was born March 20, 1925 in Charles County, Maryland to the late Robert and Edith Greenfield. She had one sister and one brother. |

She was a faithful servant of the Lord and she attended St. Mary's Catholic Church in Bryantown, MD. She was a Eucharist Minister and a dedicated member of St. Mary's Ladies Sodality.
Mary was a strong, independent woman that was a source of strength for many. This was especially handy for keeping her sons in line. Her love for food fed many on Sunday afternoon. Her grandchildren mostly remember her roast beef and sweet potato dinners. They also remember her festive decorations at Christmas time. She gave great hugs and her family's heart is comforted knowing she is in God's arms now.
She is survived by her daughters Edith Thompson, Alice Bell, and Francine McLean; son-in-law John Bell; sister Susanna Wade; sister-in-law Clara Mae Greenfield; fourteen grandchildren, twenty-one great-grandchildren, fourteen great-great grandchildren, and a host of nieces and nephews.

She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.
