The family of Emily Moore are sorry to announce her passing on Monday Sept. 14, 2015 at 94 years of age. She was predeceased by her husband, Herbert “Chub” Moore, and son, Peter. She is survived by sons Tom (Marjorie) and Bill (Elaine, deceased). She was also predeceased
by her only brother Peter and sisters Margaret, Evelyn, and Lena. She is survived by four sisters, Marion, Ollie, Louise and Hazel. She is also survived by her grand- children Tom (Jennifer), Tracey (Brian), Jeff (Dorota) and Dene, and daughter-in-law Reyna. She leaves 13 great grandchildren and one great grandson.
Mom was born in Angusville, Manitoba and moved to Vancouver Island with her husband in 1941 where she remained. She taught school for 24 years, beginning in the original Koksilah school in Duncan, then on to Alexander school also in Duncan, and finally at Georgia Avenue school in Nanaimo. Emily and Chub were very active in minor baseball in Duncan, making many lifelong friends along the way. She enjoyed her retirement in Port Alberni and said she would always be happy as long as she could see Mt. Arrowsmith every day. We will miss her very much.
A Memorial Service will be held Friday, Sept. 25th ~ 2:00 pm
Seventh Day Adventist Church, 4109 Kendall Ave, Port Alberni.
Reception to follow at P.A. Lawn Bowling Club, 4255 Wallace St.
