Sally Post Moore, a Colorado native and former longtime resident of Pine, died Aug. 19, 2018, in Dallas. She was 65.
Throughout her life, Sally loved crafting, the art of making beautiful gifts for others. She was particularly adept at quilling, the use of strips of paper to create art designs. Sally also loved all kinds of sewing, especially quilting. She would make quilts to order for friends or repair family quilts.
Born in Littleton to Pamela and William Post, she graduated from Arapahoe High School and went on to Western State College in Gunnison, where she obtained her bachelor's degree in art.
She met her husband, Charles, while working as a graphic artist in Denver when he brought in a job from his employer. After several months of dating, she jokingly asked Charles to come with her to visit her parents. He surprised her by agreeing. The catch was that her parents were living in England.
That adventure led to a more serious relationship and marriage in 1980. The couple lived in Littleton, Denver, Arvada and Evergreen before settling in Pine, where they had a home for 15 years. She was a victim witness assistant for the Arapahoe County district attorney's office before deciding to work in the retail industry. Employed first at a fabric store and then a health store, she ultimately found a home working at Walmart, where she stayed for 18 years until her retirement.
The couple loved to travel and made numerous trips to England to visit her parents as well as touring Europe. They learned to scuba dive on trips to the Bahamas and Cayman Islands. After retiring, they sold their home in Pine and purchased a recreational vehicle for travels throughout the United States.
Sally was diagnosed 8-1/2 years ago with metastasized breast cancer. She fought her disease over those years through numerous and various treatments while continuing to live the life she desired. She refused to say "cancer" as one way to fight back.
They had been staying at various RV sites in the Dallas area, near Charles' sister, for the past nine months while Sally received treatments.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by her sister, Diane Lebsack and husband Gary, and niece Kimberly Merlene, all of the Phoenix area; and great-niece Miranda Merlene of San Diego. She was preceded in death by her parents.
The family plans a memorial service at a later date.
