Wow Mom! What a ride you have had, fortunately more highs than lows, and you accomplished a lot in your life!
You worked for the phone company in the early 40's, married Rex Moyle and was introduced to Mink Ranching in the late 40's along with being taught to run a cattle ranch with a few horses in the mixture. Not bad for a "city" girl.
Another perspective, you have lived through the horse and buggy, Great Depression, Pearl Harbor, World War II, The Jet Engine, Korean War, Vietnam, Lunar Landing, Desert Storm, 9/11, Afghanistan and Iraq Wars, Computer age with "Google".
Later you and dad were instrumental in starting up the Southwest Idaho Trail & Distance Riders, (SWIT&DR). This is where you and your prized horse "Moyle Hawk" shined. You received many trophies being in the top 10 and even a few "Best Conditions" here and there. This was accomplished beginning at the age of 41 years young.
You, Dad, Jeanne and Dan were the first family of four to complete the prestigious 100 Mile Tevis Cup Endurance Ride in 1963 in California. This was the starting of many years of Endurance Riding for mom.
You traveled the Northwest with your riding, saw some beautiful country and formed some great friendships. In 1980, you began to slow up some to spend time with your grandchildren. Your granddaughter, Rex Anne, was your shadow with the endurance riding in doing literally hundreds of miles together.
Mom, you started a Sour Dough mix that lasted for years. Out of that came the best biscuits, pancakes, scones and bread.
When not riding, you and dad traveled to the Mexican Coast for deep sea fishing. You both found that to be very relaxing. Talk about traveling, in 2006 Jeanne, Carole and cousin Barbara accompanied you to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Then in 2007 on to Holland and Amsterdam. You were so funny when the tour group introduced us to the "other side" of Amsterdam watching the "Ladies of the Night" perform their dancing. All you would say was "my oh my". We laughed so much. Also when you and Joyce rode the elephant in Thailand. What a fun time you ladies had. Other ventures with your family included Alaska, Panama Canal, Antarctica and Hawaii a few times. You were so fortunate to have visited other countries.
You kept very active and busy with your flowers and gardening in your spare time (that is what spare time you managed to find). You had many canine friends including but not limited to Lindy, Jessie, Thunder and Annabelle. Your other activities included playing the piano, Roller Skating, Bowling, and you were an excellent seamstress along with knitting many afghans and sweaters. And one game you so enjoyed was Bingo, you showed me some little knick knacks and I asked you about them. Your answer was "I won them playing Bingo", I told her "you go Mom"!
As the Great Matriarch of our family, you are survived by Carole Bock-Masonholder (Larry) Sand Hollow, ID; Dr. Marilynn M. Moyle, DVM, Sandpoint, ID; Dan Moyle (Raelene), Weiser ID; Jeanne Wilbur Wallace (Glen) Weiser, ID; Susan Moyle, Weiser, ID; Robyn Allen, Gresham, OR; and Barbara Moyle, Star, ID; along with 9 Grandsons, 2 Granddaughters, 10 Great Grandsons and 6 Great Granddaughters.
