We are saddened to announce the peaceful passing of Glory Moore on Monday, January 6, 2020 in Calgary, Alberta.
Glory was born in Dovercourt, AB and raised on a farm on the Red Deer River with parents, William Murray and Josie Murray (Ens) and her siblings, Lenore, Harry, Bill and Mildred.
She graduated in Nursing from the Provincial Training School and was employed there until she and Marvin Stringer were married in 1947. Together they resided in in Red Water, Drayton Valley, and Morinville, before settling down on Hulbert Crescent (near Sherwood Park) with their four children; they were part of a wonderful community during those years. Sadly, Marvin passed away after a lengthy illness in October, 1964, leaving Glory with the challenge of raising four children on her own.
Glory met and married Wilmot (Bud) Moore on March 17, 1969 and resided with the youngest five of their combined family of eight. She and Bud retired to Victoria and enjoyed their time and many travels. They relocated to Calgary in 1995 and continued their travels, with their trip to Thailand being the highlight of their travels. She was a member and executive of the Royal Purple Elks, Sherwood Park, Vagabond Trailer Club, Victoria and was a volunteer with Hospice Victoria, and Hospice Calgary Living with Cancer Program and Rosedale Hospice in her eighties. Glory loved travelling, bridge, cribbage, reading, learning, spending time with friends and at the age of ninety-three, developed a passion for painting.
