Obituary of Teresa Moore
1958 – 2020
Teresa Moore (nee Frocklage) of Kimberley, British Columbia, died peacefully on February 20, 2020, after complications post-surgery.
She was born on September 21, 1958, in Kimberley, one of six children of June and Bert Frocklage.
She met her future husband, Jeff Moore in high school, married in 1979, and they raised two children together; Josh and Melanie Moore. Teresa welcomed each of their spouses; Melissa and Jeffrey, with open arms to the family, and the light of her life became her 4 grand- daughters; Makenna, Cayleigh, Emerson, and Lorraine, to whom she was tirelessly devoted.
Teresa dedicated her life to others. She helped shape and deliver the first USW Woman of Steel program and went on to teach and empower women in the workforce. After receiving her Human Service Worker degree, Teresa was instrumental in establishing the Lee Haskell Youth Center and both fundraised for the Centre and delivered programs for youth in Kimberley.
Teresa & Jeff moved to Kamloops in 2002, where Teresa dedicated herself to the Heart & Stroke Foundation as the Area Manager for 15 years before retiring.
Teresa’s spirit is carried on by all the people she has welcomed, helped, supported, and loved over the years. She created community wherever she went, evident by the many friends she has made from around the world. She will be missed by all who knew her and loved her.
