Jeannine Moore died May 17, 2022 in Longview, at the age of 86, surrounded by her loving family. Jeannine was born in Zebulon, Kentucky to Morrell and Truly Freeman. Her family moved to Washington when she was eight years old.
In 1953, she married Franklin "Buzz" Moore in Seattle and they made their home in Morton. The family moved to Cathlamet in 1962. Jeannine worked for the Wahkiakum Conservation District and for Seattle First National Bank, retiring as bank manager. After retirement, Jeannine and Buzz enjoyed wintering in Arizona. Jeannine was very artistic and enjoyed sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting, pottery, cooking, and canning. She enjoyed watching and feeding the birds in her neighborhood, especially the hummingbirds and the crows. The crows recognized her and would only eat if she fed them. She would sometimes have a freezer full of bread for them. She loved the dachshunds she and Buzz had over the years. Most of all, she loved and cherished spending time with her family and friends.
Jeannine is survived by daughters and sons-in-law Debra (Dean) Takko, Terry (Steve) Amondson, and son Greg Moore, sisters Joan Green and Arden Cattanach, seven grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by husband Buzz, parents Morrell and Truly and brothers Wade and Gary Freeman.
A graveside service will be held for family with a memorial gathering for family and friends at 4:30 on June 3rd at #6 Morgan Drive, Cathlamet. For those who would like to donate in her name, some of Jeannine's favorite charities were Community Home Health and Hospice, Salvation Army and The Humane Society of Cowlitz County. Dowling Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
