Delores (Epp) Moran

Delores (Epp) Moran, 90, a 59-year res­i­dent of Edge­wa­ter, went to her eternal rest on March 31, 2016, sur­rounded by her chil­dren.

Delores was born in Bal­ti­more on May 30 (the real Me­mo­rial Day), 1925, to Philip & Bertha Mary (Ther­res) Epp. When she was 3 years old, the fam­ily moved to Gal­lant Green in Charles County, where she lived un­til her grad­u­a­tion from Notre Dame High School in Bryan­town in 1943. She im­me­di­ately went to work at the U.S. Naval Pow­der Fac­tory in In­dian Head to help with the war ef­fort.

Af­ter the war, Delores held sev­eral file clerk po­si­tions un­til she mar­ried the love of her life, Thomas “Tommy” R. Moran, Jr. on Jan­uary 15, 1947. From that time un­til her death she was the proud mother of six; grand­mother of four; great-grand­mother of six; and re­cently wel­comed her first great-great-grand­child in De­cem­ber 2015.

Another ca­reer opened up for Delores when she be­came a school bus aide for Anne Arun­del County Pub­lic Schools, a ca­reer that lasted for 17 years un­til she re­tired in 1994.

Delores en­joyed work­ing in her many flower gar­dens over the years. She also loved cross­word and word search puzzles, watch­ing her “soaps” and game shows, lis­ten­ing to the orig­i­nal real coun­try music and go­ing for drives in the “coun­try.” Her great­est plea­sures came from be­ing with her ex­tended fam­i­lies ev­ery week­end and also watch­ing Ma­jor League Base­ball games on TV, es­pe­cially her beloved Bal­ti­more Ori­oles. She was a true fan through thick or thin since 1971.

All who knew Delores will re­mem­ber this quick smile and the gig­gle she had in her voice when­ever she spoke.

Delores was pre­de­ceased by her par­ents; her sib­lings, Ed­mund, Ray­mond, Philip, Agatha “Dolly” Epp, Mary Lou Adams and Betty Ann Wat­son; her hus­band Tommy (d. 1979); and three sons, Den­nis, Mark & Chris.

She is sur­vived by her sis­ter, Ros­alie C. Epp of Wal­dorf; her chil­dren Thomas Ray Moran, Hugh­esville, Dar­lene Moran, Edge­wa­ter and Donna (Brian) Sher­bert of Wye Mills; grand­chil­dren Lau­rie (Le’Ron) Moran, Amanda (Ja­son) Bax­ter, Ash­ley (Gary) Bax­ter and Heather Sher­bert; great-grand­chil­dren Am­ber (Joshua) Parham, Aliyah Dou­glas, Olivia Lawrence, and Madi­son, Lil­ian & Cam­den Bax­ter; 1 great-great-grand­son, Kea­gan Parham; and nu­mer­ous nieces and neph­ews.

A vis­i­ta­tion will be held on Mon­day, April 11, 2016, from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at Ge­orge P. Kalas Fu­neral Home, 2973 Solomons Is­land Rd, Edge­wa­ter 21037.
