A memorial service for Anna Moore, who handled the sale of apples and peaches at the family orchard on Joppa Road in Perry Hall for many years, will be held at 4 p.m. tomorrow at the Camp Chapel United Methodist Church, 5000 East Joppa Road.

Mrs. Moore, who was 91 and lived on Joppa Road at Moore's Orchard, died Monday of heart failure at the Fallston General Hospital.

She had worked at the orchard with her husband, George B. Moore, who died in 1958, and later with a son, waiting on customers until last year.

As a young woman, the former Anna Norris taught at the Chase Elementary School and from 1956 until 1959 was postmaster at nearby White Marsh.

A native of Perry Hall, she was a graduate of Towson High School and earned a teaching certificate at what is now Towson State University.

At the Camp Chapel United Methodist Church, to which she belonged for over 70 years, she was a member of the Epworth League, the Ladies Aid Society and what is now the United Methodist Women.

She was also a member of the Perry Hall Homemakers Club.

Mrs. Moore is survived by a daughter, Anne B. Crue of Abingdon; two sons, George Fenby "Gus" Moore and John Rheese Moore, both of Perry Hall; six grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
