Mary Lou Moore of Venice, Fla., formerly of Westport and Margaretville, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Nov. 13, 2013 at her home.
She was born in Margaretville, March 8, 1939, to the late George Decker and Helen (Halcott) Decker.
Mary Lou was a loving wife and cherished her time with family, especially time with her grandchildren. She had the best of all worlds, enjoying time in the Adirondack and Catskill Mountains of New York in the summer and fall, and then heading south to Venice, Fla. in the winters. She loved entertaining friends and family in both places, and was an excellent host and fabulous cook.
She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Joseph Moore of Venice, Fla.; son William (Kristen) Moore of Lake Placid; daughter Jennifer (Jeff) Kucera of Lubbock, Texas; grandchildren: Sean, Chelsea, Kalina and Cecilia; brothers: William York of Prescott, Mich., Robert (Rosie) Decker of Palm Bay, Fla.; sisters Betty Little of Andes, Irene Decker of Margaretville, Marie Mead of Schenectady and Beverly Banks of Delhi; brother-in-law Patrick Moore of Ogdensburg; and sisters-in-law Margaret Moore of Paramus, N.J., Jeanette Moore of Galway, Ireland, MaryJane (Jerome) Rigoroso of Yonkers, Clorinda Moore of Wadhams and Hildegard Moore of Elizabethtown.
She was predeceased by her sister Shirley Mead and brother-in-law Denis Moore of Wadhams.
There are no calling hours at this time. A memorial service will be held in Westport in spring 2014.
