Ellen Marie Moore Lettang Butler
Moyock – Ellen Marie Moore Lettang Butler passed away Thursday June 8, 2017 in Moyock, NC. She was born July 21, 1939 in Williamston, NC. The youngest of seven children of James and Rosa Moore, Ellen was raised in the town of Bear Grass, NC.

Throughout her life, Ellen lived in several states, but was a long time resident of Hampton, VA before retiring to Moyock, NC.

Ellen’s interests included bird-watching in her backyard, reading novels and celebrity gossip magazines, playing the lottery, telling bawdy jokes, and taking trips to the local thrift stores. She was loved and cherished by her children, grandchildren, and friends, who will remember her always for her strength of character, her sense of humor, and her unconditional love.
She is survived by her sister Louise Greene of Buckroe Beach, VA; her children Kenny Lettang and his wife Patricia of Jacksonville, FL, Debbie and her husband Tom Faller of Port Jefferson Station, NY, and Cheryl Lettang of Moyock, NC; her grand-children Christine, Thomas, Kelly, Erica, Rachel, Jacob, and Shane; her great grand-children Abigail, Aidan, Emma, Ryan, Kody, and Ellie; her long-time partner Kenny Handle of Moyock, NC and his son Kenny and many cousins, nieces and nephews .
