Katherine Marie Shore (nee Wagner), a native and resident of south Saint Louis for 63 years, died of natural causes April 2, at the health center of Westminster Woods on Julington Creek in Jacksonville, Florida. She was 92.
After graduating from McKinley High School in 1943 she began working at the Federal Reserve Bank of Saint Louis. Later that year she married Eugene V. Shore, also a former graduate of McKinley. He died in 2005 after they had been married almost 62 years.
For 25 years Mrs. Shore worked as a secretary for the Saint Louis Public Schools system at various school locations including more than ten years at Cleveland High School. She retired in 1987.
After moving to Beverly Hills, Florida, in 1988, Mrs. Shore and her husband became active in community affairs and the Beverly Hills Community Church. She was an eight-year volunteer at Central Florida Community College.
She moved to the Westminster retirement center in 2010. While at Westminster she was a member of the resident advisory council. She became a champion Wii bowler and enjoyed taking rides as a passenger on motorcycles during special Westminster events. She frequently attended the Jacksonville Symphony.
She is survived by a son, Michael, of Fleming Island, Florida, and a daughter, Ms. Nancy Vorhis of Crossville, Tenn; their respective spouses, Sandra and Steve; along with six grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
A memorial service is planned for later this month at the Westminster Woods chapel.
