    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.
