IF YOU KNEW THE KELFIELD MOORES, don’t miss this memorial party WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 2:00 pm at the Kelfield Community Centre, Kelfield, Sask.
It was 100 years almost to the day from when Tom and Anne Elizabeth (Lillie) Moore moved onto the farm at Kelfield, that Joseph Moore, their only son and the last of that family, died on April 9, 2018 at age 94. Evangaline (Eva) Moore died peacefully at the Regional District Home in Battleford January 25, 2018 at age 91.
“Uncle Tom” and “Aunt Lillie” enjoyed farm life and raised their three kids, Winnie, Joe and Eva, at Kelfield amongst wonderful neighbors and friends.
Joe continued farming until moving to Nova Scotia in 1974 with his wife Margaret and three children. Joseph was predeceased by his wife, Margaret in 1999; sister, Winnifred 1986; and sister, Eva in January 2018. He is missed by many, especially his children, Nelia (Roland) Brooks, Cheryl (Walter) Noe and David; his six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Evangeline loved life and although never married, loved her nieces, nephew and her many friends. She also enjoyed the company of the hundreds of birds, cats, dogs, and wild animals that lived on the Moore farm of virgin prairie, coulees and spring water. Eva worked at the Provincial Court in Saskatoon for many years and spent weekends at the farm which was her favorite place in the world. She suffered a stroke in March 2014 and was unable to return. She was a quiet woman with a busy intellectual mind. Her love of literature, music and politics were hidden because of her reserved nature, but she was well versed on all these subjects. She delighted in her Irish ancestry. Many who knew her would say she was the most gentle, sweet-natured woman this world ever knew.
Come out to Kelfield July 11 to meet Patty, Nelia and Cheryl, and share some stories, pictures and history.
