Verl Elizabeth Moe

Verl Elizabeth Moe, 83, of Buckner passed away on Friday at the family farm.

She was born November 11, 1925, in Wapato, Washington, one of ten children born to the late Jacob and Rhoda Shrock. She graduated from Wapato High School in 1944 and a year later married Sgt. Robert G. Moe on June 27, 1945, at the R.L.D.S. church in Yakima, Washington. To this marriage were born five children, Jerry Moe and wife Lupe of Tulare, California; Gary Moe and wife Carole of Pasco, Washington; Vickey Azure and late husband Mike of Kennewick, Washington; Dennis Moe and wife Nancy of Buckner, Missouri; and Kristi Rhymes and husband Barry of Buckner, Missouri. The greatest joys in her life were her 21 grandchildren and her 27 great grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband Robert, two sisters and a brother, Eunice Hetrick, Inabell Heller and Ellis (Cork) Shrock. She was preceded in death by three sisters; Eleanor Grundell; Leola Ransier; Betty Stephens and two brothers; Allen Shrock and Melvin Shrock.

She was an active member of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and Zion's Hope Restoration Branch in Levasy.

Verl and her husband were one of the first farmers in the Columbia Basin Irrigation Project near Pasco, Washington. They settled onto their farm in 1948, living in a tent with two children until moving into an Army hut the next year. They moved to Buckner in 1995, where she continued to live and work on the new family farm. Verl was an unselfish caregiver of her little sister's children and her mother during her later years. She constantly volunteered her time to the Block 1 farm community in Pasco. She was also a youth leader and a Sunday school teacher for over 30 years. She and her husband Bob were married 63 years.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to Crossroads Hospice of Kansas City, Missouri. A graveside service will be held at Buckner Hill Cemetery at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, November 15, at 3:00 p.m. at Zion's Hope Restoration Branch at 36436 East Stoenner Road in Sibley, Missouri.

The family cannot express enough the care their wife, mother and grandmother received from Crossroads Hospice of Kansas City, Missouri. You are forever in our hearts for your gentle care you have given to our loved one. Job well done, good and faithful servants!
