Mary Louise Moore

LEWISTON — Mary Louise Moore, 90, of Ransomville, NY, a loving mother, grandmother and sister, died peacefully on Saturday, March 23, 2013, at Mount St. Mary's Hospital. Her life began February 2, 1923 to the late John P. and Hilda (Sweet) Conrad.

Her entire life was spent in Western New York where she was employed by Moore Business Forms in Niagara Falls, until she retired in 1985 with 35 years of service. She was a Charter member of the Lutheran Church of the Messiah, Lewiston, and a member of the Order of Eastern Star Chapter #374, Ransomville.

"Gram," as she was most often called, spent most of her free time knitting, crocheting and sewing for her family. Her peaceful, kind soul spent countless hours at her craft donating quilts, throws, hats, bibs and many other items to friends, hospitals, charities and whoever she came in contact who was in need. Ever patient, ever supportive, loving unconditionally, she will be forever cherished and sadly missed by her family and friends.

Left to cherish her memory are her three children, Suzanne (late Edd) Keenan of Enfield, CT, John (Umpon) Moore of Lewiston, Kathleen (Robert) Gratz of Ransomville; grandchildren, Albert (Sharon) Keenan, Wendy (Peter) Konstantakos, Melisa Keenan, April (Adam) Doktor, Tracey Smith; 13 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; and a sister, Jean Knack of Lewiston. She was predeceased by an infant son, Gerald Moore; a grandson, John Gratz; and two sisters, Helen Davis and Marjorie Osborne.

A memorial service will be held from the Lutheran Church of the Messiah, 915 Oneida St., Lewiston, on Wednesday (March 27th) at 11:00 AM, with Rev. Thomas Mason officiating. No prior visitation. Flowers are gratefully declined. Her family requests that memorial donations in her memory be made to the Youngstown Lions Club, P.O. Box 405, Youngstown, NY 14174. Arrangements have been entrusted to the HARDISON FUNERAL HOME.
