Janet Leigh Golden Moore, 67, of Reidsville, NC left her earthly home to join those gone on before her in heaven, on Sunday, August 15, 2021. Her passing was sudden to her friends and family, but right on time to her Heavenly Father. Janet, the daughter of the late Louis F. and Helen B. Golden of Reidsville was born October 8, 1953.
She was a 1971 Graduate of Reidsville High School and went on to graduate from Patriot University with her Bachelor’s degree in Christian School Education. Janet married the love of her life, Timothy Michael Moore, on December 11, 1976 and they welcomed two children, Michael Lewis and Jennifer Michelle, in 1977 and 1978 respectively. Janet worked in textiles at Burlington Industries early in her life. In the early 80’s she left the workforce and answered her calling to teach. She loved her profession and it was never work for her. Caring for and teaching children was her passion. If you were in her class, you were her child. She taught at Faith Baptist Day Care, Faith Baptist Academy, and Community Baptist School, all in Reidsville. Janet never met a stranger and had an infectious smile that showed her love for people. She was a faithful member of Bible Baptist Church in Reidsville as long as her health allowed and when she could not be there faithfully watched online.
Janet was preceded in death by her grandparents, Turner B. and Georgia C. Golden and Robert J. and Annie S. Barnes, her parents, Louis F. and Helen B. Golden, her sister and brother in law, Kathy and Danny Burgess, brother in law, Montgomery Bowlin, an unnamed baby brother, Father in law and Mother in law, Kenneth E. and Mary W. Moore, sister in law Dale M. McDaniel, and Brother in law and Sister in law, N. Wright and Brenda Smothers.
Left to cherish her memories are her husband Michael Moore, her children Mike Moore (Betsy) and Jennifer Wright, her Grandchildren, Nick Wright (Megan), Katie Wright, Julie Wright and Andy Moore, two great grandsons, Jack and Scout Wright, her sisters LuAnn Golden, Freida Bowlin (Mike Wyatt), Robin Howell (Terry), her brother and sister in laws Ann Earles, Earlene Paynter (Marvin), Wayne Moore (Sharon), Joe Bill Moore (Sandra), Alvin Moore (Carol), Shirley French (Tim), Stella Stanley, and Dwayne McDaniel, as well as 24 nieces and nephews, and many more extended family, friends, and hundreds of students she considered her own.
The family will receive friends at the home. A celebration of her life will occur at Wilkerson Funeral Home with a formal visitation on Thursday, August 19, from 6pm to 8pm and a funeral service on Friday, August 20, at 2pm with burial to follow at Evergreen Memory Gardens.
