Dinniman Honors Nottingham Woman on 100th Birthday
NOTTINGHAM (September 14, 2018) – State Senator Andy Dinniman recently recognized Ruth A. Moore on celebrating her 100th birthday.
Born in Philadelphia on August 28, 1918, Moore was married to her late husband James E. Moore for more than 55 years. She has two daughters, five grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandchild.
Moore, who worked as a bookkeeper at the shipyard in Chester during World War II, has seen 17 U.S. presidents in her lifetime. She currently enjoys reading, crochet and is an avid pinochle player.
“Ruth Moore is a role model for staying active in your golden years. She is an eyewitness to one of the most remarkable centuries in our nation’s history and continues to exemplify the virtues and values of the Greatest Generation,” Dinniman said. “I wish her many more happy and healthy birthdays for years to come.”
Dinniman attended Moore’s birthday party to personally present here with a special Senate citation in recognition of the milestone birthday, as well as a letter from the governor offering his best wishes.
