Merle Moore

Merle Louise Moore, a resident of Bellevue, Washington for 52 years, died peacfully of natural causes, at the age of 93, September 4, 2014 at the Emerald Heights Corwin Center in Redmond, WA.

She was born in Hartford, Kansas, January 16, 1921 to Sam and Pearl Jones. Merle graduated from the Emporia State Teachers College in Emporia, Kansas in 1942, and went on to teach elementary school in Derby, Kansas. Upon moving to Bellevue, Washington in 1962, Merle taught first grade in the Bellevue Public School System for 25 years.

In April 1943, Merle Louise Jones married Max Moore of Shenandoah, Iowa. Their marriage lasted faithfully until Max passed away January 11, 2006. They were blessed with two children. An avid and very accomplished seamstress, knitter, quilt and doll maker, Merle spent many years producing beautifully crafted sweaters, handmade clothing, quilts and dolls, invariably gifting them to friends and family. She was a very active member of the Overlake Park Presbyterian Church in Bellevue. She participated with pride in many church related activities, tours and events and created many beautifully sewn banners which were often hung during church services. A beautiful, generous Christian woman, Merle will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

Merle Moore is survived by her daughter, Barbara Schwarz Bohrer and granddaughter Andrea Schwarz, both of Whidbey Island, Washington, and her son Gordon Moore of New York City, New York.

A memorial service in her honor will be held at the Overlake Park Presbyterian Church in Bellevue, Saturday, September 20, 2014 at 2:00 pm.
