Violet Louise Moore was called home to her heavenly home on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018 at Grandvue Medical Care Facility, where she was a member of the Grandvue family for two years.
Louise was born Dec. 17, 1928 in Central Lake to Electa (Barnes) and Clarence DeForest. In 1947 she married Harry W. Moore and together they raised four children.
Louise is survived by her children, Ginny (Bud) Carey, of East Jordan, and Ken (Kathy) Moore, of Williamsburg; daughter-in-law, Lorrie Hauswirth; five grandchildren, Leon (Lisa) Carey, Troy (Kina) Moore, Natalie Terrell, Nathan (Breona) Moore and Becky (Charles) Pleune; 10 great-grandchildren; sister, Betty Jordan; brother, Ziba DeForest; and a sister-in-law, Mildred Rebec Harris.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; sons, Dennis in 2009 and Clifford in 2015; and sisters, Goldie, Ruby, Sylvia, Florence, Opal, Pearl and Ada.
She worked in medical records at the Traverse City Osteopathic Hospital for 17 years. Following retirement she worked at the Ben Franklin Store in Traverse City sharing her crocheting and knitting talents as well as her joyful spirit. She was a talented seamstress, crocheted beautiful doilies and afghans as well as lap robes, which were donated to several nursing homes over the years.
Louise was a member of the United Missionary Church for over 50 years. She taught Sunday school for many years and served as Sunday school superintendent, Women's Missionary Society president, Little Jewels leader and volunteered at WLJN Christian Radio. A quiet and humble Christian, Louise loved her Bible, daily prayers and old hymns, but her main joy in life was serving her family and her God.
A special thanks goes to the wonderful and caring Grandvue staff. Our family will be eternally grateful for their love and compassion for our precious mother and our family.
