Sheryl A. Moore

February 25, 1955 — October 5, 2023


On February 25, 1955 the late Elmer Anthony Moore and Shirley Wilson Moore became the proud parents of their second daughter, Sheryl Ann. Sheryl was a very happy child. She was always smiling. Recently, following many months of illness, Sheryl was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, October 5, 2023, at approximately 7:13 AM, where we are certain she was embraced by her parents and her sister Karen who preceded her in death.

During Sheryl's illness she was taken care of by her oldest sister, Parthenia (Nita), who was her greatest advocate and who never left her side. Every doctor and nurse knew they had to answer to Parthenia for any and all of her medical needs as well as her son Aaron. Sheryl has always know how much her sister loved her. During her last months Shery's smile or her cry let those who visited her know how glad she was to see them or that she did not want them to leave.

Sheryl was educated in the Philadelphia school district where she attended Edgar, Allan Poe, and GW child’s elementary schools as well as Edwin H their middle school. She was a Broad graduate of buck vocational high school where she met many of her lifelong friends. Shirley’s quiet and friendly Spirit allowed so many to seek her out as their “Friend” “Sister Friend” or “confidant.” She was truly loved by so many, especially Mercedes, Christine, and April.

Sheryl grew up in South Philadelphia where just about everyone knew the “Moore family” her genuine love of her family was so evident she was the peacekeeper the family she spent a lot of time visiting her maternal aunt Ruthie and uncle Steve and their children in West Philadelphia on weekends and during the summers as a child so much so that many thought she was the daughter and not the niece or cousin. 

Following graduation from high school, Sheryl worked at the Colonial Penn insurance company. While there she accepted a position at their Tampa Florida office and moved to Tampa where she met and fell in love with Robert Ivery.

It is because of their union debt as Aaron says he was born. Sheryl remained in Florida for some time and eventually moved back to Philadelphia. She lived with her parents and raised Aaron, who she loved more than anything, or anyone else in the world. In the family home on Morris Street, that is until her grandson Aiden was born.

Sheryl became a “football and basketball mom” because of Aaron’s sport activities. She attended every practice and went to every game rain or shine, serving in the concession stand as well as making sure her son, as well as all the other boys had fun, were safe and were being treated fairly.

Sheryl also worked at Philadelphia Presbytery Keystone Mercy and eventually the school district of Philadelphia at the Philadelphia High school for girls where her sister Parthenia was principal. Sheryl told Parthenia she went to the school district administration building where she found out there was an opening, and she was hired for the position, unbeknownst to her sister.

Sheryl love traveling to Atlanta, Georgia to visit her youngest sister Karen, her niece Kayla, and her brother-in-law Sam. Their home was like her second home. She was the one at the time who truly understood Karen’s move to Atlanta to attend college. Sheryl also loved spending time at family events, cooking everybody’s favorites and participating in the Morris Street block parties. Her nieces Melissa and Kayla, nephews Kevin, Keith, and Will were like her own children. She loved them and all their children, the great nieces, and nephews, dearly in addition to her sister Adrienne (Cookie) and brother-in-law’s William (Pooh), Sam and Eddie.
