ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Marie Moran has lost her fight with breast cancer. The professional photographer who had so much spunk and compassion, leaves behind beautiful memories and pictures.

Moran, who was in her 40s, lived years beyond the experts' predictions that she had only months to stay alive. 

Her funeral service was held today at the Island View Baptist Church in Orange Park. Her funeral focused more on her ability to light up everyone's life, rather than the loss of her own.

Moran leaves behind a husband, Ken, four children and several grandchildren.

She took hundreds, probably thousands, of photos at no charge for First Coast News non - profit projects, such as Kutting for Kids and Buddy Check 12.

She worked for the American Cancer Society's "Look Good, Feel Better" program. She even offered to do free professional portraits of any person, man or woman, fighting any type of cancer.

Moran's family said she radiated love and would let them draw on her bald head during her chemotherapy as a way to lift up people around her.

Her family said she had a strong faith in Christ and they're confident she's at peace now in Heaven.
