Opal Moore

CHICAGO, IL (January 5, 2007) - A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 6 at 11 a.m. for Opal Moore, long-time member of the music faculty at North Park who passed away on December 20 at age 102.

Ms. Moore taught piano and introduction to music at North Park from 1936-1969.

Peace to the memory of Opal Moore.
