    Barbara Dodson Moore, originally of Kenbridge, VA, was born on March 18, 1939. After several years of health issues, she met her beloved husband, Daniel B. Moore, in heaven on April 6, 2020. Barbara was the daughter of the late Owen & Irma Dodson. She is survived by her daughters and son-in-laws, Sharon Ligon (Mike) of Richmond and Deanna Lane (Scott) of Richmond; granddaughters and grandson, Michelle Tuck (Marshall), Nicole Jones (Evan), Travis Lane (Ariel) and Danielle Lane; great-grandsons, Elis Jones and Grier Tuck; sister Marcia Abernathy; nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews. Like her mother, Barbara loved people.  Over the years, she worked at many places – nurse at the Methodist Children’s Home in Richmond, Bookkeeper for her in-laws at The Ben Franklin Store in Kenbridge, Receptionist & Purchasing Agent for Southside Virginia Community College in Alberta and Keysville. In retirement, Barbara did not stop. She was the “self-appointed hostess” at Mildred’s Meals in Kenbridge, until she moved to Richmond in May 2012.  Once in Richmond, she reunited with her college classmates of Johnston Willis Hospital Student Nurses Class of 1960. She also enjoyed her years living at Westwood Village Condos where she was “block” captain and kept up with all of the by-laws and changes. For the previous three years, she resided at Spring Arbor of Salisbury, where she was the “unofficial” mayor & “hospitality” committee. She knew all of the employees and residents there and personally “greeted” each new resident and any of their guests that arrived! Though she would never admit it, she enjoyed her time at Spring Arbor. Those of you that knew Barbara know that she relished being with people, especially her family, enjoying the beach, knitting, crocheting, her hat collection, her “bling,” and socializing with everyone. She will be missed by many! No doubt to her chagrin, Funeral Services will be limited to immediate family on Friday, April 10 due to current mandates. Once this emergency situation is over, a celebration of her life will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Kenbridge United Methodist Church Building Fund & Southside Virginia Community College Foundation.
