Marilyn S. Moore, 96, of Milford, passed away on Tuesday, March 19, 2024. Born in Lynn, Massachusetts, she was the daughter of the late Jesse (Slade) and Harold Soper, from Bonavista, Newfoundland.

Marilyn worked as a nurse’s aide for many years and enjoyed taking care of her patients. After retiring from healthcare, she worked at a local vegetable stand, becoming a friend and confidant to their regular customers. Throughout her life, she would love to bake, especially her famous marble squares for others to enjoy. Mal, as her friends called her, was an avid Red Sox fan and was often found watching a game. She liked traveling, as near as her homeland of Canada and as far as Australia. As a young mother and spouse of a serviceman, she lived in several different states, always making an impact on those she met along the way. When she moved to Countryside Healthcare in Milford at ninety years old, she continued to gather friends while enjoying reading, game playing, and arts and crafts. Most of all, Marilyn was Nana to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was always there to hold a baby, read and sing to a toddler, and offer advice to a teenager or new parent.

Marilyn is survived by her children, Harold Moore and his wife, Colleen of Hopkinton, Susan Quigley of Hopkinton, Cynthia Lewis and her husband, Richard of Kingston, NH, Phillip Moore of Danvers, Kimberly Smith and her husband, Gregory of Camden, ME; her brother, Robert Soper and his wife Linda of Londonderry, NH; sister-in-law, Jean Soper and her late husband and Marilyn’s brother, Harold Soper of Lynn; her many grandchildren, Joshua Moore, Gianna Stillman, Alyssa Krebs, Matteo Moore, Jocelyn  Moore, Brianna, Katherine and Daniel Quigley, Jessica Lewis, Conor, Braden, Chandler and Riley Smith. She also leaves behind 13 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her son, James Stephen Moore, her former husband, James Moore, grandson, Jacob Moore, her sister, Gloria Moronie, and her brother-in-law, Dominic. 

Visitation will be held on Saturday, April 6th from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton, 57 Hayden Rowe St. A funeral home service will immediately follow at 12. Burial will be held privately at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, www.t2t.org  which supports our veterans and their families.
