Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Doris Ann Moore

Doris Ann (Nelson) Moore was born in the fall of 1942 in Glasgow, Mont. She grew up on the Family Farm north of Opheim, Mont., with parents Clint and Elsa and siblings Gretchen, Carl and David. With the cousins and neighbor kids, they carried their lunch boxes to the rural farm school where they terrorized gophers, ran amok outside, and used the outhouse for relief. When Doris graduated from Opheim High, she received her teaching degree from Eastern Montana College. Her childhood dream became a reality when she got her first teaching job at the Glasgow AFB.

While there, she met Holye Moore; they were married in 1964. Hoyle and Doris raised their children, Eric, Gretchen and Kurt in Lewistown, Mont.  After 34 years, their retirement led them to Kuna, Idaho, to be closer to their children. After Doris's tenure with the Lewistown School District, she had a second career working in the adult education program.

Doris is survived by children; Eric, of Williston, N.D., Gretchen Hill (Steven), of Kuna, and Kurt (Michele), of Kuna.  Her grandchildren Zach (Brittany), Bailey, Ellie, Riley, Tate, Evie Jo, David, Andrew; and great-grandchildren Abigail and Wyatt.  Doris's love for her Lord, family, friends, and students was the most important parts of her life.

Doris was preceded in death by her loving husband Hoyle; parents Clint and Elsa Nelson; brothers Carl and David Nelson; sister Gretchen (Westby); sister-in-law Brenda Moore; brothers-in-law Ray Moore, Paul Savage and Bill Westby; also nephews Tony Moore and Clint and Ryan Nelson.

Doris passed away after a short but valiant struggle with cancer.  Her service and celebration of life will be at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran in Boise, Idaho, on Saturday, April 27, at 10 a.m.

In memory of our mother, have coffee with a friend and ask them about three new things.

If you wish to honor Doris, donations can be made to Keystone Hospice of Eagle, Idaho, or Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran of Boise.
