November 24, 1934- June 17, 2017

Glenda Moore lived a full life from November 24, 1934 to June 17, 2017 when she passed away in Jena, Germany while on a trip with her church choir family. She was born at home near Bridgeport, Nebraska to Albert and Edna Hinman Davis. Albert’s job required the family to move frequently, living in Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wyoming before settling in Colorado. Glenda finished high school in 1952 and was Salutatorian of her class at Moffat County High School. She graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration Cum Laude from Loyola University in Chicago in 1987. Glenda married Bob Moore at the First Congregational Church in Craig, Colorado on June 5, 1955. Through their marriage, they lived in various locations including Colorado and Illinois while Bob continued his education. Glenda supported the family by working in many administrative capacities at Loretto Heights College in Denver, University of Colorado (CU) legislation liaison office, the CU residential academic program, Mesa College, Metro State College, and others before finally landing at Merrill Lynch where she was supervisor of federal wire transfers when she retired in 1995. After Bob’s death in 1993, Glenda began fulfilling her passion for travel abroad. She traveled to Germany many times while her son, Paul, was stationed there. As she put it, “I was in Germany every month of the year except for February and March”. She also visited England, Scotland, Ireland, France, Austria, Canada and Spain. Her final visit to Germany was with the church choir to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s reformation. Glenda’s love of family was obvious as her eyes lit up when spoke of them, with the grand and great-grandchildren holding a special place in her heart. She was such a giving person, which led her to many volunteer positions at the First Presbyterian Church, Heirlooms for Hospice, Community Food Bank of Grand Junction, HOA board member, PEO officer among others. Music was also an important part of her life, playing clarinet and piano in high school, alto and bass recorder for groups in Georgetown, Colorado and Grand Junction and singing in church choirs. Glenda was preceded in death by her husband, Robert E. Moore and infant grandson Christopher Moore. She is survived by one sister Elaine DeuPree of Craig, Colorado and two sons, Mickey Moore (Carol) of Grand Junction, Colorado and Paul Moore of Ridgecrest, California; five grandchildren Daniel de la Corte of Denver, Colorado, Scott (Ashley) Moore of Ogden, Utah, Ryan (Morgan) Moore of Pilot Point, Texas, Andrea Moore of Tokyo, Japan, Patrick Moore of Ridgecrest, California; two great-grandchildren Evelyn and Benson Moore of Ogden, Utah. Memorial services will be held Saturday, July 8th at 11:00 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Grand Junction.
