Vermideane Moore Obituary

Vermideane Moore, of South Bend, passed away peacefully on December 2, 2023, at the age of 82. Born on July 25, 1941, in South Bend, to the late Frances Kitchen and Ollie Alexander, Vermideane's life was a testament of love, faith, and selfless dedication.

Vermideane was a beacon of warmth and generosity, known for her loving nature and faith-filled spirit. She was a devoted wife to her late husband, Charles T. Moore, and a nurturing mother to her children, Charmaine (Michael) Hall and John L. (Stuckey) Moore, both of South Bend. Her love extended to her grandchildren, Larry, Ryne, Jonte, Ja'nique, Janea, and her great-granddaughter, Reagan, who brought immense joy to her life. Three special Goddaughters, Cheri Diggins, Brenda Gates, and Carlette Carr. 

She is also survived by her sister, Helen (Luther) Allen, and brothers, Eugene Alexander, Robert Reid, and Frances Reid.  Vermideane was preceded in death by her sister, Laverne Smith, brothers, James Alexander, Haywood Alexander, Eddie Reid, Albert Reid, and Goddaughter Iradella Holland, and niece Sharon Allen, leaving behind a legacy cherished by her family and all who knew her.

Vermideane's professional life was marked by her 34-year tenure as a baker for Notre Dame University, where she was known for her exceptional skill, dedication, and especially for her lemon cakes. Her work was not just a job but a display of her love for serving others through her culinary talents.

Her commitment to her faith was unwavering, as a long-standing member of Life Church. Vermideane found solace and strength in reading her Bible, a practice that guided her through life's challenges and triumphs. Her faith was the cornerstone of her existence, inspiring those around her to embrace a life of spirituality and grace.

Beyond her work and faith, Vermideane had a passion for cooking, often expressing her love through the meals she prepared for family and friends. Her kitchen was a place of gathering, laughter, and the creation of cherished memories. She was also the epitome of selflessness, always placing the needs of others before her own, and dedicating herself to the care of her family.  She was known by many names, Deane, Dee, Mother Moore, and Mama Dee.
