Sally Kay (Brown) Moore

March 22, 1947 — January 23, 2020

Sally K. Moore, 72, of Crooksville, Ohio died late Thursday evening at the Cleveland Clinic following a courageous battle for her life and surrounded by her loving and devoted family.

She was born March 22, 1947 in Crooksville, the daughter of the late Albert and Margaret (nee: Dailey) Brown.

Sally was a 1965 graduate of Crooksville High School. Following her graduation, she went on to study cosmetology at Carousel in Zanesville and later practiced that profession with Marty Cannon in Crooksville.  She spent many years as the librarian at Crooksville Schools and later served in the same capacity at the Crooksville Public Library.  Sally served for 22 years as the manager of the Village Green Apartments in Crooksville and Lincoln Park Apartments in New Lexington.  Some years ago, she was very active in a ceramics group in Roseville where she created some beautiful ceramic pieces that are treasured by her family, pieces included are a Nativity scene as well as, a Santa and Mrs. Claus.  Most recently, she was taking painting classes.  Her family proclaims her to be a great cook and excellent baker.  She enjoyed spending time playing slots at Wheeling.  The greatest love of her life was her family, her husband, kids, grandkids, siblings and great grandkids.  She loved ‘spoiling’ the grandchildren and always had gum (and candy) for them.  Sally was Catholic by faith and a member of Church of The Atonement in Crooksville.

Left behind to mourn her passing are her beloved husband of 53 years, Tim E. Moore; her beloved children, Lori Ruff (Travis Keylor), Staci and Chris White and Darren and Wendy Moore; her darling grandchildren, Kristen and Rik Menchen, Bryan Ruff,  Sierra Channel and her fiancé Taylor Maclam, Dylan and Dalton Moore, Clay and Maggie White; her great grandchildren, Bryson and Lily Ruff, Samantha and Abigail Menchen and her siblings, Mary Lou ‘Mike” and Jeff Mumford, Alberta ‘Toots’ Sweeney, Norma Jean ‘Jeannie’ Sowers and Albert and Valerie Brown.
