Obit MooreDorothy Moore, born March 17, 1920, in Garrett, Ind., passed away on April 16, 2012, at Golden Hearth Residence in Woodinville, Wash.

Dorothy was raised in Garrett, Ind., where she graduated high school in 1938, and soon after met and wed Cameron Moore. She was a homemaker while Cameron built a career with IBM that took them from Indiana to Chicago to Minnesota and finally to North Carolina, where they retired.

Together they traveled the country in their Volkswagen camper and went on many Amtrak adventures.

Following Cameron’s death in 2002, Dorothy lived in Greensboro, N.C., until 2006 when she moved to Brittany Park in Woodinville.

At Brittany Park, she loved her many friends, her water color painting and her bean bag baseball prowess.

Her family from Washington and Minnesota gathered here to celebrate her 90th birthday and enjoyed riding the Duck, seeing the sights of Seattle and eating cake.

A celebration of Dorothy’s life was held at Brittany Park. Another celebration will be held this summer in Minnesota.

Friends are invited to share memories and sign the family’s on-line guest book at
