NOTE: no relation to B.E.F. Stienstra.
Miss Moore, employed my parents when my father was a seminarian at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Mt. Airy, Philadelphia to be houseparents (Stork Hill, Lower Beech, Mother Goose) at Carson Valley School, Flourtown, Pennsylvania. She wanted to employ him after Chaplaincy training in 1964 to Pastor (see also: The Rev. Robert Martin Feist, also at "findagrave.") a Chapel on Chapel Hill at Carson, and the idea was nixed by the hierarchy. She was successor to Miss Ueland who was the first director at Carson (who was incidently a classmate of Maria Montessori known for the "Montessori" methodology incorporated into Nursery School and Kindergarten at Carson Valley School, of which I, Barbara Feist was a graduate.)
