September 16, 2005

Roberta D. Moore, a former dental assistant and catering company partner, died from a brain tumor Sept. 9 at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air. The Edgewood resident was 43.

Born Roberta Denise Brooks in Baltimore, she was raised in Edgewood. She was a 1980 graduate of Edgewood High School and earned an associate's degree from Harford Community College. She was a graduate of the Medix School in Baltimore, where she studied dentistry.

In addition to working as a dental assistant in Edgemere, she established the Service With a Smile catering business with her husband.

Mrs. Moore stopped working after her brain tumor was diagnosed in 1999.

She was a member and sang in the choir of the Edgewood Assembly of God, and was a founder of its Circle of Praise outreach ministry.

"This ministry consisted of two of her sisters and a small circle of friends who went to local establishments singing and praising God," said a brother, the Rev. Cedric Utsey, pastor of Nicodemus Baptist Church in Baltimore, where services were held yesterday.

Mrs. Moore enjoyed gardening and home decorating.

Surviving are her husband of 21 years, Bruce Moore; a son, Christopher Moore of Edgewood; her mother, Roberta Brooks of Edgewood; another brother, Darryl Brooks of Edgewood; and three sisters, Terry Jackson of Edgewood, Angela Bridgeforth of Essex and Robin Curry of Los Angeles.
