Rachel M. Dooley

Staff Reports's picture

Rachel Louise Moore Dooley went home to heaven Jan. 23, 2016.

A daughter of the late Richard L. Moore and Maude Broome Moore, she was from Westminster, where she resided until moving to Greer in 1973 with her husband and daughters.

A graduate of Westminster, Rachel was an accomplished seamstress, avid sports fan, and an enthusiastic community and church volunteer during her active years. She loved her Clemson Tigers and enjoyed watching football and basketball. A committed stay-at-home mother, she was known as an ever-present (and vocal) fan at whatever sporting event her children or grandchildren participated. She loved her family and loved Jesus, and one learned of these passions within minutes of making her acquaintance.

She was the “wind beneath the wings” of her husband, Roy and spent the early days of his career assisting him.

She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Jan and Mac McBride and Kim and John Keller; grandchildren, Maggie and Rushton DeMars, Benton and Chelsea McBride, Sam McBride and Sara McBride, Jay Keller, Rachel Keller, Hope Keller and Joshua Keller; great-grandchildren, Claire DeMars and Mac DeMars. Also surviving are precious nieces, nephews and in-laws.

Funeral will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday at Taylors First Baptist Church Chapel, conducted by Dr. Jimmie Harley.  

Visitation will be from noon-1:30 p.m. Wednesday at Taylors FBC Welcome Center.

The family is at the home of her daughter, Kim Keller, 112 Rubiwood Circle, Greer, SC 29651.

Memorials may be made to Greer High School Dooley Field Memorial Fund, 3000 E. Gap Creek Road, Greer, SC 29651 or Greer Community Ministries, P.O. Box 1373, Greer, SC 29652.
