Dorothy H. Moore, age 77, of Carrollton, Ohio, died early Friday morning, Dec. 8, 2023, in Carroll Golden Age Retreat surrounded by her loving family.

She was born Aug. 29, 1946, in Moodus, CT, and was the daughter of the late Frank and Dorothy (Rich) Wardwell.  

Dorothy was an animal lover who demonstrated her support through her membership in the Carroll County Humane Society. She was a champion Scrabble player who was a member of the National Scrabble Association. She was an equestrian devotee who owned horses for most of her life  and who began showing horses competitively when she was very young, primarily in the Louisville area of Kentucky.  Dorothy was an informed and knowledgeable fan of “Jeopardy” who could accurately answer most of the questions, and could play a virtually flawless game of “Trivial Pursuit”.  She could carry on an informed conversation about virtually every subject … she was “Google” for her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who will be missed by her family and friends.

She is survived by her husband Max M. Moore, Jr., whom she married January 12, 1964; daughter, Corinne Ren of Carrollton; granddaughter, Mrs. Lexie (Zac) Tinlin; and great-granddaughter, Ayla, all of New Philadelphia; brother Frank Wardwell of Dellroy; six sisters-in-law, Peggy Bunner of Garrettsville, Mrs. Ginger (Nathan) Robinson of Cherokee, NC,  Mrs. Pati (Louie) Sperduto of North Port, FL,,  Mrs. Debbie (Tyler) Feller,  Mrs. Teri (Barry) McCarty, Mrs. Dee Dee (Tom) Michel; and brother-in-law, Jim (Dolly) Moore, all of Carrollton, and a large family of nieces and nephews.

In accordance with her wishes, she will be cremated and no formal services will be observed. Baxter-Gardner Funeral Home at Sherrodsville has been entrusted with arrangements.
