Verna Mae Moore
Nov. 15, 1933 – March 5, 2024


In loving memory of Verna Moore, we would like to announce her passing at the age of 90.

Her life began in Milford Station, Nova Scotia, helping her parents on their dairy farm. She married her beloved husband Samuel Moore on Feb. 12, 1955, with whom she raised six children: Sue, Debbie, Billy, Janice, Brenda and Verna, in Nova Scotia.

In 1981, she moved to Rocky Mountain House, Alta., to join her husband who was working in the area. Her love of the area and the people in Rocky made it their forever home. Verna could not be beat in stamina, working during the day at Bishop Law Firm, Civic Tire, Esso Resources; nightly she completed janitorial contracts at Chatenay Dental, Aspen Dental, Social Services, and MD of Clearwater, only to name a few. Even with her high work performance and dedication to so many facilities within the community, she always found time to care and support her family.

Verna’s passion was the outdoors, long walks with her family and pets. She enjoyed gardening and hunting to provide food for her family.

Verna is survived by her five daughters: Heather (Sue) Benz, Debbie Moore (Gary), Janice McKeen (Rob), Brenda White (Steve), Verna Wagoner (Danny); along with her grandchildren: Amber Dunstall (Jay), Justin Dunstall (Philippa), Sam White, Billy White, Jeffery Carpentier, Chelsea Carpentier, Keely Carpentier, Nikki Carpentier; great-grandchildren: Adelle, Tristan, Rowan, Anna, Tom, Colin, Blaire, Cooper, Ember, Nixon, Blakely, Bostyn, Graydee.

Verna is predeceased by her husband Samuel and son Billy, but leaves her two sisters Jean Carroll of N.S. and Freda Connors of N.B. to remember her.

Viewing will be held at the Rocky Funeral Home on Thursday, March 14, 2024, at 6 p.m. Funeral services will be held at Church of the Nazarene on Saturday, March 16, 2024, at 11 a.m. Date of summer interment in N.S. to be determined at future date.

In lieu of flowers for Verna Moore, donations can be made to ROAR - Rocky Organization for Animal Rescue Society.
