TICONDEROGA - Linda Kay Moore, 66, of Ticonderoga passed away peacefully on Christmas day with her loving family by her side. Born Nov. 24, 1947, in Ticonderoga, she was the daughter of the late Perry G. and Katherine A. (Farrelly) Clark.
She married Edgar P. Moore Sr. March 22, 1975, in Port Henry.
Linda began her working career as a secretary for the law firm of Dominick Viscardi. Through the years, she held many other secretarial positions within the Ticonderoga community, including the Moses-Ludington Hospital admissions and billing departments, North Country Council on Alcohol and Substance Abuse, secretary to the Ticonderoga assessor, Mountain Lakes Services, a daycare provider, and secretary for Ticonderoga Highway Department. She was a longtime inspector for the Board of Elections. Prior to her retirement, she returned to the Law Office of Judge Viscardi.
One of Linda's fondest memories was working on her family's chicken farm on Chilson Hill. She always spoke fondly of collecting, packaging and delivering the eggs to the surrounding communities. Her many interests included baking, knitting, crocheting, reading and taking bus tour trips all over the northeast with her husband, Ed. Linda was very proud of her Irish heritage.
