Virginia always served Wilsonians with a smile on her face. Many knew her from the years working at both Carolina Clinic and Wilson Clinic before leaving to pursue a banking career. Virginia proudly served the Wilson community by working for more than 35 years at Wilson Saving and Loan Association. Following its closing, she spent her remaining career with BB&T until she retired in 1999. Virginia was known for her honesty, uncompromising moral character and her sweet spirit.

Virginia is survived by her daughter, Virginia Lynn Moore Thaxton of Goldsboro; and her grandson, Travis C. Thaxton of Charlotte.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 44 years, Edwin C. Moore; her grandsons, Trent P. Thaxton and Tyler M. Thaxton; and parents, Almond and Gladys Joyner.

In lieu of flowers, please consider memorials in Virginia’s memory to Kitty Askins Hospice Center, 107 Handley Park Court, Goldsboro, NC 27534.
