Jeanne Marie Moe was born on September 25, 1927, in Port Angeles. She was the only child of Florence and Clifford Moe.

She passed away peacefully surrounded by family and friends on March 19, 2013.

She grew up in Port Angeles, and worked at Fry's Drug while going to high school during World War II.

When the love of her life, Johnny, got home from the war, they married on December 28, 1946. They moved to Seattle, where she received her PHT, or "Pushed Husband Through," honorary degree when Dad graduated from the University of Washington.

They both remained lifelong Huskies and avid sports fans.

In 1960, they built their dream house just in time to welcome a summer's worth of visitors to the Seattle World's Fair. Mom always had a fresh bed and hot meal prepared.

They raised three children, Cliff (Steve Olivas), Kaycie (Larry Schloer) and Carol (Steve Wilt). Her son, Cliff "Tip," and her beloved husband, Johnny, preceded her in death.

She gloried in her seven grandchildren, Jennifer, Brenna, Shauna, Joey, Rob, Andy and Laura; two "bonus" grandsons, Aaron and Carlos; and 12 great-grandchildren. She also had three stepgrandchildren, Doug, Cyndi and Valerie, and their families.

Mom was a proud member of "The Dirty Dozen," a group of girlfriends from Roosevelt High School that stuck together through the war and life.

She is survived by her "Fister-in-law" (we would have been friends even if we weren't related) Marge and her husband, Lew Curtis; her sister-in-law, Carol Cayanus; and her longtime friends the Ken and Betty Miller family. She also has many nieces, nephews and friends.

She was a very special lady, so gracious and welcoming always. We are comforted in knowing that Dad and Tip are sharing rowdy card games with her now.

A funeral service will be held on Monday, March 25, 2013, at 2 p.m. at Bonney-Watson Washington Memorial, 16445 International Boulevard, SeaTac.

Donations may be made to St. Martin de Porres Shelter, where she and Dad volunteered as the stew-crew for many years: St. Martin de Porres Shelter, Catholic Community Services, Attn: Office of Mission Resources, 100 23rd Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98144-5979.
