Frances Moore: Sept. 24, 1946 – May 28, 2018



Our dear Frani passed away on May 28 after a short illness. She was 71.

She was born Sept. 24, 1946, in San Rafael, Calif., the second child of Howard (Bill) and Marguerite Bledsoe. A Navy brat, she moved with her family several times to various Naval air stations around the country, graduating from Oak Harbor High School with the class of 1964.

She met and married her husband, Everett, and settled down to a gentle country life in Maple Valley, where she became an accomplished gardener, equestrian, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. She raised children, chickens, ducks, squirrels, horses, dogs and cats. She was a devoted and loving mother, Cub Scout leader, chicken farmer — and she made the best fruit jam and apple pie in King County. She always opened her home and heart to anyone in need – and many of her son’s friends called her “mom.”

She was preceded in death by her parents, younger brother James Bledsoe and her beloved horse Mackie. She is survived by her husband Everett Moore, her daughter Bonnie Swasey, son W. Scott Moore, her brother Howard Bledsoe, and numerous nieces and nephews. She touched many lives and we will always carry her memory in our hearts.

A celebration of her life will take place at her home in Maple Valley later this summer. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.
