June Elaine Moore, 91, went to be with the Lord Friday, Sept. 15, 2017, at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital.
She was born June 27, 1926, in Logansport, to Charles and Violet Schrader, and was the widow of Herman L. Moore.
Elaine spent her early years in Logansport and then moved to El Paso, Texas, where she met her future husband who was serving in the United States Army during World War II. She moved back to Indiana after the war and she and Herman were married after his return from the Pacific Theater on Dec. 10, 1945, in Alexandria. These two soul mates were inseparable until his passing in 1984.
Elaine was a telephone operator in Texas and Indiana. She enjoyed writing poetry expressing her deep Christian beliefs. Being a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother was her chosen career. She was active in the Boy Scouts and served as a Den Mother for many years.
She is survived by her three sons, David L. Moore, (wife, Vera Jean), Kevin Moore (Pam Asberry) and Eric Moore, (wife, Amy); a sister, Ruth Wilson, Phoenix, Arizona; a brother, Max Schrader, Maricopa, Arizona; nine grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild. She had numerous beloved nieces and nephews as well.
She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; baby daughter; two sisters, Mae Leonard and JoAnn Hunt; a brother, Charles Schrader; and other precious family members.
"Death may claim the body but God claims the soul. From the moment that the body stops living, the redeemed soul is already living with Jesus." June E Moore.
