As one of her former students at LHU; I am so sorry to learn about Dr. Moore's passing she was an excellent teacher, mentor and friend. She will missed and hard to replace.
I am blessed to have had you in my life. The world is a better place because of you. I am sure that in heaven you are considered one of the best. You have touched so many hearts here on earth. Missing you.
Memories of a wonderful friend on her birthday... Thinking of you makes me simultaneously smile and sigh. I miss you, Marta. Denise
Tomorrow would have been your 64th birthday, but instead of us planning what's for lunch and who's picking up the ice cream cake we will be grieving while you celebrate your first birthday in heaven. You still continue to touch our hearts and our lives everyday. I think of you regularly and cannot thank you enough. We miss you and love you.
Dr. Moore was one of the greatest professors that i have ever had the privilege of getting to know. Truly a great woman with a character to match. She will be eternally missed by her past students as well as ones who she recently had. The Clearfield Campus just isnt the same without her around.
It was my privilege to know Marta Moore. She was a caring dedicated teacher and a happy positive personality. Students really liked and cared for her. I saw her student ratings, so I can say this with assurance. Lock Haven and Clearfield were fortunate to have her services. Please accept my empathy and condolences..............Craig Willis
Marta will forever be remembered for her kind and gentle soul. I had the honor of knowing her through Karen. The very first time I met her I felt as if I had known her my entire life. She made you feel as if you were the most important person in the room. She listened with her heart. I remember being at Marta and Karen's home and Marta was playing with Olivia. As I watched them play together I remember thinking I wish I was Olivia...she gets to play with Marta. I always admired Marta for her strength during her illness. She was such an inspiration. Her memorial service was beautiful...listening to people talk about how much she meant to them and how she touched their lives. My life is better because I had the honor of knowing Marta and her kind and gentle spirit. Leaving the service my heart kept searching for an answer to the question "What legacy will I leave"? If all of us could be just half the person Marta was, the world would be a better place.
Marta was a childhood friend...we lived next door to one another and rode the school bus together. We shared many long talks about life / and what our futures might hold. We had made a pact that who ever married first owed the other two (my sister)a set of dishtowels. LOL, I owed them both! I awoke with her on my mind last week and was going to try to see if she was by chance on FaceBook. Two days later my mom called to say she had passed away. I am so sorry we never connected again. I am not surprised the field she chose to go into for her profession. I bet she was darn good at what she did. She was one of the sweetest people I ever met.
Sorry I missed you Marta.
Marta had such a kind soul. She fit right in with our family and will never be forgotten. I never knew the professor side of Marta, but as people talk about her that had her for classes they are surprised that she was struggling through sickness. She didn't show it at all. That is just one of the things that shows how strong she was. No matter how much she had to endure, she always was pleasant and never showed negativity. I will always envy her strength and our family is stronger just from knowing her.
Dr Moore was a wonderful, caring and devoted professor. She was very dedicated to her work and wanted to see her students succeed. I unfortunately did not know her personally, because I took her classes online but highly respect her as a person and a perfessional. After reading her obituary, I really wished I had known her personally, she seems to have blessed many lives. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Dr. Moore made a difference in many lives and though she has passed on, her memory will live forever!
You will be greatly missed and will be forever loved. Rest in the peace of knowing, your life will be remembered forever in our hearts.
I met Marta while a student at Penn State Dubois. She was always there for you and always lended a helping hand. Whenever we had a final exam there was a group of us who went to Perkins afterwards and Marta was more than a Professor...she was a friend. You will be missed. Janet Dinsmore Penfield, Pa
In Memory of Marta Moore
Marta was my student, colleague and friend, in that order. In each capacity, she was outstanding and unique. As a friend she was always willing to extend herself, sometimes at the expense of great effort and time -expecting nothing in return.
Thus, it can be said by those who knew her, also in varying capacities -from children to older people, that Marta was above all a truly giving person. That is the word that describes her most fittingly.
In addition, she did not demand of others, even when she was enduring one of her many serious medical difficulties. She stood up to these hardships quietly on her
on her own unique strength.
May Marta now experience the peace she so deserves.
Louise Guerney, Professor Emerita, The Pennsylvania State University
Dr. Moore was a beloved professor and educator whose classes I will always remember.
I am saddened to hear of the passing of Marta. I was fortunate enough to be one of her students at LHU. She was always a ray of sunshine with a smile on her face! She will be sadly missed, my prayers go out to her family and friends.

I am so sad to hear about Marta's death and the passing of such a kind, caring, bright, genuine, spirited, warm-hearted woman, who also had such a great and somewhat sly sense of humor. She was a dear friend for more than thirty years. I will miss her and yet also know that heaven is a happier place thanks to her. To Karen and her family, my heart and prayers are with you. She was so happy with all of you. I am thankful that she had such joy and love becuase of all of you. I love you, Marta, and thank you for everything. God Bless...
Marta will always be remembered for the positive impact that she had on the lives of so many. My thoughts are with Karen and Marta's numerous friends and family.
Marta was my favorite professor at Lock Haven University! She was an inspiration to me and my family, and will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to her friends and family.
Dr. Moore was an outstanding professor, and cared so much for her students. I had the privilege of having three classes with her, and enjoyed every minute of it! She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten! Thank you for Everything Dr. Moore
Dr. Moore was such a great professor. Because of her, I love psychology. She made every part of the material easy to understand and apply to my nursing degree. I will never forget her kindness to me and to everyone in her classes.
“Smarta”, your wonderful spontaneous laughter and your ability to see the irony and humor in everyday life made you so very much fun to work with! Your encouragement and friendship will always be a part of my Penn State experience that I treasure. Friends, Jo Ann Bartley
Dr. Moore was one of my favorite teachers at LHU. She will always be remembered as an incredible and genuine person because she truly cared about the success of her students.
I was so sorry to hear the news of Marta's passing. She was a wonderful, caring person who will truly be missed. I was fortunate, & honored, to have taken one of her classes w/ LHU. I am now in southern Texas, & will not be able to attend her services, but my thoughts & Prayers are w/ those involved, especially w/ my niece, Karen, who will miss Marta greatly. Sincerely, Aunt Mona (Mona Strong).
I like many others had Dr. Moore for classes at Clearfield. I will never forget when she told us she didn't want to eat her cereal as a kid because she didn't want to break up the family.I had many personal talks with her about things and helped me when no one else could and I will be forever humbled by her. She was funny, intelligent, tough when she had to be but above all she loved her family and truly loved what she did. Marta will always remain with each of us in some way.
My prayers and condolences go out to the family and friends of Dr. Moore.
I had the pleasure of having Marta for a couple of classes and she always took the time and effort to answer any questions of concern. She was a real quality person and will be sadly missed by not only her family, but by her students and co-workers. I offer her family and friends my sincere condolences.
Professor Moore was truly one of the best professors at Lock Haven. She was always there whenever someone needed help with something. Genuinely a great person, may she rest in peace.
I'm so sorry to hear this news. I have never met this professor, but have taken an online class with her and she was amazing. She was so understanding and sweet. I was going through some financial hardship and told her I couldn't afford the book, and she shipped a brand new textbook to me ASAP. That was pretty amazing and trustfull. Thanks to her, I got an A in the class. She will be loved and rmembered.
It was an honor to be a former colleague, student and friend of Marta's. This woman not only was an expert in her field, she was a true humanitarian! How blessed I was to know such a caring, loving, thoughtful, giving woman. Our loss is heavens gain!
Marta was a quiet and very loving person. She went through more sickness and pain than anyone should have to endure. We will miss her very much. Rest in Peace, Marta.
Dr. Marta Moore made a huge difference in the lives of her students at the Lock Haven University Clearfield campus. She was their inspiration to become more; she was their role model; she was their champion. When these students would transfer up to main campus after two years, they would always credit Dr. Moore as the person who made them believe in their ability to complete an undergraduate degree. She lives on through them and through the differences that they are and will make in the lives of others. In addition to being an inspiration to her students, Marta was also an inspiration to her colleagues. She embodied the spirit of a true educator who always put the needs of the students above all else. Her ability to come up with creative ways to serve our students, often under some major restrictions, never ceased to amaze me. This creativity was always coupled with great humility; she never wanted any credit for her suggestions or solutions. She often made me, as her department chairperson, look exceptionally good. Marta will be greatly missed by the LHU students, faculty, and administration, all of whom are better people from having known her.
I was blessed to have Marta as a professor at Lock Haven, Clearfield. She was filled with knowledge, caring, and acceptance to any and all who she came in contact with. I feel very priviledged to have known her. She will be missed!
Marta was a caring, dedicated colleague, and an advocate and friend to all of our students at the Clearfield campus of LHU.It was a privilege to know and work with her.
Marta is remembered as a professor dedicated to facilitating the success of her students. I extend my deepest sympathy to her family and loved ones.
Marta--It was a pleasure to know you, work for you, and just have you as a friend. You touched countless lives, and all of us at LHUP will miss you so, so much. Rest in peace. With much love, Lisa
I loved Marta. I started taking her classes at Clearfield Lock Haven and continued at main campus. I took every class she taught, enough for a minor in psych. She was a wonderful teacher and an even better friend. Karen, you and Marta will always be in my heart.
Marta was such a sweet and compassionate lady who will be greatly missed by many. Love and prayers are being sent to you Karen and your family.
What a great lady...she inspired people around her to be the best they could be just by being the person she was. She was very proud of her new family and Karen she was never happier than in the past ten years. We will all miss her and her comforting, encouraging voice when we asked for help with a problem or needed her perspective on a problem...rest easy Marta you earned it. Karen and family, I will keep you in my prayers.
Marta was a compassionate, caring professor who inspired her students to become the best they could become. She was also a giving and helpful colleague. She had a vast knowledge of human development and was always willing to share information. I will miss learning from her and working with her.I feel confident that Marta will rest in peace knowing how much she helped others.
I got to know Marta at LHU Clearfield helping her with technical problems she would sometimes have in her class. She was a sweetheart. Always friendly, kind and we would joke with each other. She is one of those people you will never forget. I will miss her dearly.
Marta touched the lives of so many people, she always had a open ear and good advice, she was a sweet, loving, giving person who will be forever missed by all that knew her. She adopted all entire family as her own, and we are richer for it, prayers and love to karen and all the family, sincerely patty and kevin crater
We have lost a wonderful teacher who lives on in the lives of thousands of students and friends...someone who won many battles and seemed so indestructible ...hard to accept that she is gone...but what a terrific life well led...what a loving, giving, talented person..a perfect role model for her students.
There is an old saying that says you can pick your friends but you cannot pick your family. In Marta's case this did prove to be true. She chose this family to bless with her love, kindness, wisdom and understanding; I think they will always be touched by it and will be a better family because of it. As a part of this extended family I feel very lucky to have known her. She was always available with a loving ear, words of kindness and the ability to help you see things much clearer. As a grandmother I could not have been luckier than to have Karen and Marta to share my grandchildren with. With Marta's passing I can find comfort in knowing that I was privileged to see a glimpse of the great person she was. Anyone who knew her even briefly or from a far as I did knows that her life here had much purpose and she has more than earned the peace and comfort she now has achieved.
Without Marta I would not have become a play therapist. I am so sorry to hear of her untimely death and will remember her always.
Marta was truly an great supporter of children. She dedicated her life to teaching and helping those that were willing to spend some time with her. I will treasure the times that she spent with me just listening. She will be greatly missed.
Marta was the epitome of someone who wanted to help children have better lives and mentored a lot of professionals in our area. Thinking of you all during this time of grief and sending my condolences.
Marta was one of the great ones! She will be missed by so many. I grieve her passing but celebrate her life which was one of giving.
Marta was such a kind, caring, and genuine lady. She was truly an inspiration to me and many others. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Marta was one of my professor when I attended LHU, but before that she was a co-worker at cen-Clear and a really good friend, she was always there when I need her wether it was anwsering a question to just lending a hand, she was be my side the whole time I went to college she was always the one who pushed me to keep going...Marta you will forever be my friend, I will miss you....
I'm so sorry to hear of Marta's passing. She was a lovely, sweet lady. I am thinking of you Karen, if you need anything please feel free to call.
Marta was known by many names in her life. Sister, Dr. or Professor, friend, Mimi, even Princess Marta (from my daughter when she was very young.) But of all those names she answered to, I think the most important one to me was family. We lost a very significant role model and one of the strongest women I've ever met. Marta will be remembered by hundreds and cherished by many. Never have I known someone so talented, smart, genuine, and all around amazing. I want to thank her for the countless memories that my children, family and friends have that wouldn't have been possible with out her. We love you Marta, you will always be remembered in our hearts.
