Evelyn C. Moore

Green Bay – Evelyn C. (Nee Hearman) mother, aged 96, was reunited with her husband, Harvey, on Thursday, April 14, 2022. Evelyn was born on January 12, 1926, in Green Bay. She attended Hillcrest Elementary School, but as the eldest of 10 siblings she needed help at home, so high school was never an option for her.

On July 1, 1944, she married Harvey P. Moore. The couple had six children, James, Gary, Joseph, Steven, Donald, and Angeline “Jill.” When the children were all school-age, Evelyn went to work in Shapko. After she retired from Shapco, Evelyn volunteered at Improvement for several years.

As the family grew, Evelyn’s creativity and purity were always evident. She made and sold many hats from Harvey and the boys’ hunting trips. She also immersed herself in ceramics. In her younger years, Evelyn caught a lot of fish in her cottage pool and drove a snowmobile with her husband Harvey. Evelyn has always been an avid gardener with a shower of flowers every month during the growing season. Her perennial gardens have been praised by many. Evelyn was also an accomplished semistress, crafter, and quilter. She did machine grinding and slicing, but most of her favorite pieces are hand and hand pieces, really a work of art! Mother’s house has always witnessed Evelyn’s skills with needles and thread. She has created many moments for her children and her 12 grandchildren, each of which has at least one moment hand-crafted by “Nade”. Evelyn was also a cracker jack in every card game and has enjoyed gambling a bit in recent years.

Evelyn’s nine decades and experiences in a country room in a room outside of school and in the first 10 years of childhood in the family without a home phone or car growing up, in a girl’s As the first job to do the elevator work. A department store back when the store had an elevator driver. She experienced all the technological advances and accepted them as they came. She learned to use a computer and computerized sewing machine and email as well as mobile phone and text writing skills that most 96 year olds could not claim!
