Adell's Story

Text size

Adell Avis Moore, 84, of Traverse City, passed away Sunday, Aug. 6, 2017 at the Grand Traverse Pavilions with her loving family at her side.
Adell was born on Sept. 4, 1932 in Detroit, to the late Edward and Florence (Vincent) Scrine. On Feb. 25, 1956 at Christ the King Church in Grosse Pointe Woods, she married the late William "Bill" E. Moore, whom she was married to for 59 years until his passing in 2015.
Adell's biggest joy was her family and her love for children. She took pride in being an amazing homemaker and giving her children a fun and loving home. Summers spent at Camp Dearborn were a tradition for many years. Adell was a passionate reader with a quick whit and positive attitude. Although dementia took hold in her 60s, she still found a way to appreciate life and to always have gratitude. It was rare to not see Adell with a smile on her face.
Moving to Traverse City and being able to volunteer at the Grand Traverse Pavilions Day Care was a highlight later in life for Adell. One special memory was Adell asking to get a tattoo for her 70th birthday and being so proud to show off the beautiful rose on her ankle.
Surviving Adell are her children, William R. (Kathy Ann), of Howell and Kathleen Moore Begin (George Hill), of Traverse City; her former son-in-law, Keith Begin (Linda Wurm); grandchildren, Nicholas and Kristina (Matt Laxon) Moore, Trevor (Kahlie) and Blake (Danielle) Begin; great-granddaughters, Kiersten Begin and Viviana Laxson; brother, Russell (Nancy) Scrine; and several nieces and nephews.
Adell was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and her sister, Doris Cabrera.
Private family services will take place at a later time.
The family wishes to thank the Grand Traverse Pavilions, Heartland Hospice, Traverse Manor and Chronic Care Management for all of their love and support.
