Fern MOORE

Oct. 26, 1927 – Oct. 19, 2013. Fern Maxine Moore (nee Lawrence) passed away in the presence of her Lord on October 19, 2013 just days shy of her 86th birthday. She was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta on October 26, 1927. She was raised on a ranch, married at a young age, as was common in those days and after moving to several towns across BC, ended up settling in the town of Hope. There the family lived for many years until her husband’s retirement and then moved to Chilliwack. She had a great passion for music, listened to all kinds, and even wrote some of her own songs. She loved horses and enjoyed being with her family and many grandchildren. She was predeceased by her loving husband George Moore in 2003. She will be deeply missed by all her surving children: Russell (Ingrid), Gary (Laura), Murray (Judy), Linda (Ed), Rocky and Donna (Dennis) along with 14 grandchildren, 38 great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren. A celebration of life for Fern will be held at the Woodlawn Funeral Home on Hocking Ave., Chilliwack on Friday, October 25, 2013 at 3:00pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Chilliwack Hospice Society.
