Dorothy Moore (neé Ison) 1924 – 2017

Class of 1943

Dorothy Moore, or Dot as she was affectionately known as to relatives, and close friends, passed away peacefully in January 2017, aged 92.

Entering the School in 1932, and leaving in 1941, it is safe to say that Dorothy was very well equipped for her further studies at Edinburgh College of Domestic Science. She graduated from the same in 1943, with Diplomas in both Household and Institutional Management.

Upon graduating, Dorothy was afforded the opportunity to work as a Demonstrator for the Ministry of Food, from 1947 until 1950. Further to this, she then went on to accept the position of Home Services Demonstrator and Advisor for The Scottish Gas Board in both Dundee, and Edinburgh.

After meeting her husband-to-be, Alexander Moore who was also a former pupil of the School, fondly referred to as Sandy, the two were later married at Holy Trinity Church, in St. Andrews on 13 September 1957. They had two children throughout the course of their marriage, son David, and daughter Kirstin.

As well as being an avid flower arranger, and a member of the Edinburgh Floral Art Society as a result, Dorothy was also a keen, and devoted horticulturist. Furthermore, she dedicated much of her spare time to volunteering with Cancer Research in one of their retail shops in Edinburgh. She went on to be awarded a certificate of recognition for her twenty-six years of volunteering.

Furthermore, Dorothy loved adventure, travelling to various parts of the world with Sandy, including the mountains and lakes of Switzerland, and Italy, which they both adored.

She will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
