Jan. 14, 1923 – Nov. 30, 2012
Our beloved and wonderful mother and grandmother, a longtime resident of 100 Mile House, B.C. passed peacefully on Friday, November 30 in the presence of family and friends. She was born Grace Phillips Jan 14th, 1923 near Thamesville, Ontario (Camden Township); daughter to George and Laura Phillips (Howes) and sister to Olive, Florence, Lena and Helen. Grace married James Moore of Chatham, Ontario, in 1943, and raised four children Terry, Colleen, Kathy and Tim. After a visit in 1964, the lure and the beauty of the Cariboo drew them to move to 100 Mile House, B.C. in 1966.
To cherish so many marvelous memories, Grace leaves behind daughters: Colleen Moore, Kathy (Wayne) Kidwell; and son: Tim (Janice) Moore; granddaughters: Tracy Moore, Sarah (Stephen) Chang, Laura Tyrrell; grandsons: Ted (Janet), Jamie and Liam Moore; great-grandchildren Gillian and Allison Moore; sisters-in-law: Marilyn Hillman (Chatham, Ontario) and Dorothy DeWinton (Fort Collins, Colorado) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Grace was predeceased by her husband Jim Moore (2004), son Terry Moore (1998), daughter-in-law Roberta Moore (2002) and great grandson Bradley Moore (1999).
Grace will be remembered and celebrated for her “homespun” hospitality, unique words of wisdom and giving nature. Her thankful attitude took her many places. Thank you to all the ANGELS who loved and enfolded Grace, especially these last four years.
Grace Moore’s Celebration of Life and Light will be held when the warm winds blow and the geese return to her beloved Exeter Valley.
– A Celebration of Life and Light for Grace Moore will be held this Friday, (July 26, 2013) at 2:00 p.m. in the Valley Room behind the Red Coach Inn.
