Patricia Moore, a former business reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times, died July 6 from Alzheimer’s.
“‘She knew all of those people, like the Smiths and Armours,’ said Barbara Varro, former fashion editor and feature writer for the Sun-Times. ‘Pat covered all of those grande dames, all the dowagers.’
“‘She had to deal with the upper crust, but she never took them very seriously, to her credit,’ said former Sun-Times reporter Harlan Draeger.
“At the Daily News, she covered a tour of Lambs Farm by First Lady Betty Ford; Princess Grace of Monaco’s visit to the Chicago discotheque Zorine’s, and the filming of Robert Altman’s ‘A Wedding,’ at a Lake Bluff estate of the Armour meatpacking clan.”
