Lou Moore

Obituary Condolences

Lou Moore, age 81, died in her home in La Luz on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011, with her daughters at her side. Billie Lou was born July 23, 1930, in Fort Worth, Texas, and was raised in Idabel, Okla. She was a resident of La Luz since 2000 and before that, a resident of Albuquerque since 1963.
She attended Gray High School in Idabel where she was undoubtedly the most popular girl there, being head cheerleader, homecoming queen, student council president and much more. Her children and grandchildren, however, believed her most outstanding accomplishments were in her parenting and grandmothering skills.
In Albuquerque, Lou worked for several dental offices as office manager. After she retired, she moved to La Luz where she was active in the CASA program as a children's advocate. She was also a part of the Calico Club where she had many friends.
Lou was known for her creativity, sense of humor and her many comical T-shirts. As an avid reader, talented artist and seamstress, she was often called upon by her friends, family and co-workers to come up with something clever to fit any occasion.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Bill and Edith Kuykendall; sister Joan Ray and brother R.D. Kuykendall. She is survived by her children Linda Maestas and husband, Frank; Suzie Fresquez and husband, Julian; Jan Sanchez and husband, Filbert; and Wil Moore; a brother, Randy Kuykendall, and wife, Sonja; and her sister-in-law Jean Kuykendall. Lou had eight grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011, at 1 p.m. at the Burro Flats Volunteer Fire Department, 556 Laborcita Canyon Road, La Luz. A private interment will be held in Idabel at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Friends of Burro Flats Volunteer Fire Department, 556 Laborcita Canyon Road, La Luz, NM 88337.
