Obituary: Catherine Moore

Catherine Moore

Catherine Moore joined the University of Liverpool’s Computer Services Department in 2011 as a Principle Business Intelligence Specialist.  She quickly demonstrated a tremendous capability in her professional field and developed strong working relationships with colleagues through her engaging personality and obvious love for life. 

Catherine’s move to the University coincided with the development of the data warehouse and business intelligence platforms and she was a central figure in the successful development of these systems and the services they now support. 

In 2012 Catherine was diagnosed with terminal cancer having already overcome breast cancer at an earlier time. Catherine was not prepared to let this tragic news distract her from her passion for life or dampen her positive and outgoing attitude. In fact, Catherine did quite the opposite, astounding her family, friends and her medical team by challenging herself to undertake a number of significant international expeditions all with the aim of supporting charities that were close to her heart. 

Since her diagnosis Catherine walked the Great Wall of China; Cycled Vietnam to Cambodia and trekked the Grand Canyon. She was a great inspiration to everyone who had the opportunity to meet and get to know her – she will be missed. 

Catherine’s funeral will be held on the 27th January 2015 in her home town, Kirkcaldy in Scotland. Her family have requested that any donations be made to her favourite charity North West Cancer Research through the Just Giving website.

    I have only just heard the very sad news on Catherine. We had contact through fund raising for breast cancer and I knew it was terminal with her. But hey what a lady and what a fight she put up! She was so very positive and inspirational and never gave up and tried everything possible to stay alive and well. Her love of the outdoors and her dogs were her passions in life. She grabbed the last few years of her life with such vigour and vitality and packed more in than most people do in a lifetime. I feel proud to have known her. RIP Catherine.

    So sorry to hear about Catherine. She was a great colleague and always found time to answer any query that was put to her – nothing was too much trouble and she showed true dedication, even when she knew that she was ill.

    She will be very much missed not only for her work but also for her sense of humour and her lively and inspirational personality.

    Catherine was a lovely person, always had time for everyone and always stayed upbeat.

    A strong and inspirational lady who I am so pleased to have called my friend. A real fighter who showed us all the true meaning of life and did so much for so many.
    Will miss her so much. Rest in peace Catherine, I’ll never forget you. x
