    Lois H. Moore, 91, of Maquoketa, passed away Friday, July 14, 2017, at Mercy Hospital in Dubuque.

    Services will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, July 22, at First Lutheran Church, 210 E. Platt St. in Maquoketa. Pastor Judy Heinrich will officiate. Burial will be in St. John Lutheran Church Cemetery at Bellevue. Visitation will be from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Friday, July 21, at Carson Celebration of Life Center, 318 W. Pleasant St., Maquoketa, and on Saturday, July 17, from 9:30-10:15 a.m. at the church.

    Lois Eileen Hueneke was born January 27, 1926, in Bellevue, the daughter of Herman and Edna (Felderman) Hueneke. She married George Eugene Moore on September 2, 1952, at Wartburg Seminary Chapel in Dubuque in a double wedding ceremony with her sister Eleanor and Eleanor's husband Vernon Griebel.

    Lois was a bright and enthusiastic person who loved people and was eager to engage with the world. After leaving her parents' farm at age 18, she became a telephone operator, first in Dubuque, and then in Bellevue, where she met her husband. Lois and George were happily married for 60 years, living in and near Maquoketa for 59 of those years. In the late 1960s, while running a busy household and raising three children, Lois went back to school and, at age 42, earned the high school diploma that she had never had the opportunity to obtain. After finishing first in her class, she began work as a tax preparer at the Schoenthaler Law Firm. Later Lois began work at Maquoketa State Bank where she was employed for many years. She was very proud of her work at MSB and made many friends there. She was also proud of her three sons, all of whom received the college education that she wanted them to have.

    Church was always at the center of Lois's life. First Lutheran Church was Lois and George's spiritual home, where they were active servants and leaders. Lois led Bible studies with her church friends until the time of her death.

    Lois's full life also included square dancing, horseshoe pitching, quilting, bridge, many fun times with her grandchildren and fabulous pie baking.

    She is survived by her three sons, David (Christine) of Janesville, WI, Alan (Judith Fletcher) of Havertown, PA, and Phillip (Jane Anderson) also of Janesville, WI ; eight grandchildren, Caroline (Graham Thorbrogger), Catherine, Madeleine, Peter, Andrew, Alexander, Henry and Charlie, and her great-granddaughter Maeve Eileen Thorbrogger. She is further survived by her double-cousin Shirley Harvey of Cedar Falls, her cousin John (Roberta) Felderman of Dandridge, TN, her brother-in-law Rollo (Janice) Moore of Algona, and many nieces and nephews.

    Lois was preceded in death by her husband, George, in 2013, her sister, Eleanor Griebel in 2015, and her brothers, Eldon and Herbert Hueneke.

    Memorials may be given to First Lutheran Church, Maquoketa Community Cupboard, Camp Courageous or the charity of the donor's choice.

    Cindy and I were saddened to learn of your mom's passing. I remember her well from attending First Lutheran Church in the 1960's. Cindy of course fondly recalls seeing your mom, Dave, when the two of you attended Luther together. Please know that you are in our hearts and prayers.

    I remember Lois and George from attending the Rural Letter Carrier meetings with my parents when I was growing up. They were a great help in advising Mom after Dad passed away. My sympathies to the family.

    Brenda Clark-Montgomery on Jul 18, 2017

    Lois was the sweetest neighbor a person could ever have. So glad we lived up the lane while growing up from Lois and George. She loved children and enjoyed speaking with her.

    Trent Clark on Jul 18, 2017

    George and Lois were very nice and sharing neighbors down the lane from me, when i was a child. When visiting, she would always give me and my sister cookies each time, to having warm homemade apple cider. Truely one of the best neighbors you could have when growing up!

    Lona Platner on Jul 18, 2017

    CandleI worked with Lois at Maquoketa State Bank. She was a very caring and loving person. My sympathy to her family.

    Debra Srogota on Jul 18, 2017

    We are so sorry to hear of Aunt Lois' passing. She was a kind and loving aunt. She wrote a beautiful letter to Stan's wife, Sonia after my brother's passing. ❤️

    Ron and Helen Snell on Jul 18, 2017

    Our sincere sympathy to the entire Moore family. Lois was such a welcoming, caring individual, and we enjoyed our relationship with her while members at First Lutheran church. She always had a positive, kind word, and she will be missed by so many.

    Patricia Rimmer on Jul 17, 2017

    For the Moore brothers--
    I was saddened to hear of your mother's passing. My memories of her start in childhood and run through adulthood. She was always engaging and interested in others, as I remember her from church and a supportive influence during times of canoeing on the Maquoketa River. I hope you all have very loving memories.

    As a child I spent a weekend with Lois and my cousins while on a trip with Mom and sibilings to see them and the river! She was the first person to offer a night time prayer and I will never forget that time of my life. A very special person to me, just for that moment. Rex Bristow, nephew

    Jeff Hinke on Jul 17, 2017
