MaryLou Moore

September 25, 1927 ~ July 17, 2022 (age 94)


Mary Lou Dickinson Moore, beloved wife, caring and supportive mother of 6 children and 10 grandchildren earned her angel wings on July 17, 2022.

She was born in Watertown, South Dakota, on September 25,1927 to John and Irene Dickinson. She grew up in Red Oak, Iowa and Fairmont, Minnesota where she met husband Pat. She and Pat were married on September 28, 1947.

Her varied career included running a family clothing store, being a church secretary, being a church organist, running a Hobie Cat boat business, teaching piano lessons, and teaching preschoolers.

She attended college at Mcallister College in St. Paul, Minnesota. She attended Harford Community College and Loyola University Maryland while raising a family of 6. She received her bachelor's degree from Coppin State University in education. She began her teaching career at 53 years of age and taught at Jefferson Junior High School in Caldwell, Idaho which was her dream job.

Mary Lou was quick-witted and loved word plays and puns. She always wrote personalized poems with darling cartoon drawings in cards for family and friends. She loved gardening, reading, playing the piano, and listening to music. Above all, she loved her family and did everything she could to make sure we were cared for. She was thrifty with herself but generous with others.

She is survived by her son Jon (Sandi) Moore, daughters Linda (Bob) Peterson, Lisa (Steve) Frederick, Colleen (Jim) Phillips, Carol Moore, and Shauna (Terry) Richmond. She is survived by grandchildren Shane (Karen) Moore, Chris (Rebecca) Peterson, Evan Peterson, Stephanie (David) Summers, Kelsey (Ridge) Baldner, Jamie Frederick, Katie Richmond, Carly Richmond, Molly Phillips, and great-grandson Max Moore. She is preceded in death by her husband Pat, later her companion Armon, her brother John, her grandson Tyler, and many other beloved family members.

We would like to give a special thanks to the care staff at Willow Park/Truewood Memory Care and especially to Morningstar Memory Care at Englefield Green.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Mary Lou's memory to the Alzheimer's Association.
