Moira was born and raised in the Gorbals area of Glasgow.  As a young adult Moira lived with her parents in Cathcart Road, Govanhill. Moira cared for them throughout their lives. She also cared for her Aunt Claire until her death in 1989. Prior to entering St Francis Nursing Home Moira remained in Govanhill – Butterbiggins Rd surrounded by many friends in the Parish of Our Lady of Consolation.  Moira had one brother, Pat, who died some years ago.

During World War 11, Moira served her country in the RAF as a WREN, throughout these war years Moira had opportunity to fly an aircraft – an opportunity she relished.  Following on from the war years Moira enjoyed a successful career in Grants Books Publishing Company. She retired at the age of 60.

Throughout her life Moira was a great friend to Margaret Scanlon and her family.  Moira offered great support and friendship to Margaret and her children; Ted, Joe, Margaret, Tom and Maria.  As the children grew Moira was an integral part of the family renowned for her kindness and generosity. Many a happy family holiday was enjoyed by the Scanlons at Moira’s holiday house in Rothesay.

Latterly Moira and Margaret enjoyed many trips around the country taking full advantage of their retired status. They would meet daily at Mass in Glasgow Cathedral and venture forth from there.  Following Margaret’s death in1995 Moira remained very much a part of the Scanlon Family and continued to celebrate Christmas and all special occasions with the family.  Moira will be best remembered as a true friend, a lady who was an avid reader  who enjoyed theatre and the arts. As a friend to so many Moira offered kindness, compassion and great fun to all she knew.   She will be sadly missed.

Quant’è bella giovinezza

Quant’è bella giovinezza
che si fugge tuttavia!
Chi vuol esser lieto,sia:
di doman non c’è certezza.
Quest’è Bacco e Arianna
belli, e l’un dell’altro ardenti:
perché ‘l tempo fugge e inganna,
insieme sempre stan contenti.
