Dr. Angelia Moore Flanagan
Dr. Angelia Moore Flanagan was born in Fort Hood, Texas to Mr. and Mrs. Aubrey Lee Moore. The youngest of four children, Dr. Flanagan’s family moved around the globe as necessitated by her father’s Army career. Losing her mother Mrs. Mary Louise Moore at an early age, the family relocated to Southern Pines, NC. It was there that she was immensely loved and treasured by her maternal grandmother Mrs. Minnie Quick.
Inspired by the Drum Corp International competitions on television, Angelia worked her way onto the Pinecrest High School Band. Angelia later took to the field as a member of the UNC Tarheel Marching Band, travelling around the ACC in support of the White and the Blue.
Dr. Flanagan is a faithful Soror of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The Stormy Weather Line of Kappa Omicron (Spring ’87) became lifelong friends whom she cherished. Angelia was also blessed by the love of her Foxy4 posse, forged in the flames of their Freshman year.
Dr. Flanagan spent the next decade at UNC Chapel Hill, graduating with a B.S. in Public Health and Nutrition, a Medical Degree and residency training in Family Practice Medicine. She also served as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Family Practice. Dr. Flanagan practiced in Virginia, Illinois and Nome, Alaska, always returning home to North Carolina to reunite with the patients who she knew so well.
Her 35mm camera in hand, Angelia explored life outside of the U.S. with trips to Canada, England, Belgium and The Netherlands. Angelia’s artistic talents also included jewelry making, painting and drawing with vibrant colors. She had a particular penchant for the color red. Angelia lifted her voice and sang every Sunday with the St. Ambrose Episcopal Church Choir, happily stepping in to assist with the S.A. Children’s Choir.
Dr. Flanagan was preceded in death by her parents and grandmother. She leaves behind her son Mr. Everett Flanagan and Everett’s father Mr. Hugh Flanagan; siblings Mrs. Mercedes Perez (Edwin), Mr. Aubrey Moore (Donna) and Mr. Andre Moore (Anna); nieces Renee Moore and Janeen Moore; nephews Jarrid Jones, Essan Flanagan, Damani Hutchinson, Aren Flanagan and Tony Flanagan; great nieces Malia Middleton and Jamia Butler; beloved cousin Ms. Lisa Thomas. Dr. Flanagan will be missed by her extended family (especially Mrs. Thelma Flanagan, Anthony, Tiffany, Paul, Yeshimabet and Stephanie), her St. Ambrosian family, countless friends and thousands of patients. Members of the Foxy4 and the Stormy Weather Line hold special memories of Angelia in their hearts, as do devoted friends Mr. and Mrs. Reuben and Pamela Schooler and Mr. and Mrs. Ronald and Michelle Futrell.
In honor of Dr. Angelia Flanagan, the family requests that blood donations be made to the American Red Cross. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you donate to the St. Ambrose Raleigh Children's Choir or the Autism Society of NC.
