Mary "Martha" Moore
April 15, 1942 - May 20, 2017
The family of Mary Martha Moore is saddened to say that she passed away of natural causes the morning of Saturday, May 20, 2017 in her home at Capital Manor, Salem, Oregon. Martha was a kind and gentle soul, always ready with an encouraging word and sweet smile. A flutist in her youth, Martha was part of a family who loves the arts in all forms, values education, and shares a graciousness of spirit that she herself generously extended out into the world. She loved a good laugh, was always ready with the quiet unexpected zinger, and loved her excursions to Nordstrom. Martha is preceded in passing by her parents, Edwyna and Dorsey Moore of Salem, OR, her brother Jack Moore of Minneapolis, MN, and her grandparents Betty and Harry Broadbent of Kaiser, OR. She leaves behind a family who grieves her loss: niece Lesley Moore (CA); nephew Eric Moore, his wife Gretchen Grace, and children Willa and Everett (NY); niece Jenny Moore and her daughter Thea Wallace (MN); and sisters-in-law Squeek LaVake (NV) and Sandy Moore (MN). Martha will be entombed in Mt. Crest Abbey Mausoleum at City View Cemetery by Virgil Golden Funeral Service. Per her wishes, there will be no services. Martha, we love you and will miss you forever.
