About Moira Jones
"It was one of life's privileges to share time with Moira. She was unique."
Moira was born in Weston, Staffordshire, the eldest child and only daughter to Beatrice and Hu' and 'big sister' to Grant.
A talented artist, Moira studied art and graphics before changing path and moving into commerce. Moira went on to graduate with an honours degree in Business Studies from the University of Central England in Birmingham. She started her career with Thomson Holidays and enjoyed seven years with them before moving onto a senior role with Freshfields in the City of London. She moved to Glasgow in 2003.
Moira was vivacious, feisty, intelligent, sophisticated and stylish. Her company was stimulating and she was genuinely interested in everyone - people from all walks of life, she could engage with them all. She was unfailingly supportive of others and made people feel better about themselves, she celebrated others' successes as if they were her own.
Moira loved life and life loved Moira. She loved to socialise - she enjoyed good food with good company. She would light up a room and was "damn good fun". Moira was often the catalyst that got the party started.
Travel was one of Moira's passions - she enjoyed different countries and cultures. But Moira also loved the British countryside and would love a walk along a Staffordshire canal towpath or the bracing Scottish beaches and hills.
At 40 years old, she was a popular and successful sales consultant, who relished her independence. She had so much more to achieve and enjoy in her life.
Tragically, Moira was murdered in Queens Park, Glasgow, in May 2008. Her wit, her humanity and her generosity of spirit have been lost to all who already loved her and to those whose lives she would have enriched in the future. The Moira Fund has been established in her memory.
