Nellie Jordan Moore Herbin was born July 24, 1930 in Durham County, North Carolina to the late Dozier Jordan and Carrie Jordan. After a brief illness, God was ready to welcome her home to be with Him on Friday, March 20, 2020 at her daughter’s home in Burlington, N.C.

She was preceded in death by her husbands, Walter M. Moore and J.C. Herbin, two sisters, Inez F. Williams and Marie Patrick, two brothers, Waddell Jordan and Herbert Jordan, three sons, Harold Moore, Walter K. Moore, Tony Moore, one daughter, Shelia Moore.

Nellie leaves to mourn her passing and to cherish her memories: Two sons, Connie Moore (Carolyn) of Burlington, NC; Duncan Moore of Elon, NC; Three daughters, Joyce (Brenda) Madkins (Lacy), Faye Pinnix (William) of Burlington, NC and Sandra Cohn (Joien) of Elon, NC.; daughter-in-law, Patricia Moore of Fayetteville; Nine grandchildren, one deceased; sixteen great-grandchildren; ten great-great grandchildren;  special thanks to her nieces, Johnette W.
