Mrs. Moore was born June 3, 1924 in Sanger, Texas. She came to Anchorage

Moose River, where she and her husband and children homesteaded. Mrs. Moore

in the Blazy Mall from 1976 to 1980. She was a member of the Order of the
Eastern Star, Ladies Shriners and Sterling Homemakers. She enjoyed crafts,
flowers, gardening, sewing and cooking.
“"She was a homesteader who lived many years without the comforts
of modern conveniences and never complained. She dedicated her life to her five
children, husband and many grandchildren. She was a wonderful cook and no one
ever left her house hungry. She was always concerned and passionate for her
friends and family",” her family said.
