BOARDMAN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Karen L. Moore, 76, passed away Sunday morning, October 15, 2023, in the comfort of her home, surrounded by the love of family.
Karen was born July 3, 1947, in Youngstown, Ohio, a daughter to the late Marshall and Virginia Webb Hartsock.
Karen was a graduate of Struthers High School, Class of 1965 and received her certification as a Licensed Practical Nurse from the Youngstown Hospital Association.
Karen worked as an LPN for several years at South Side Hospital.
Upon her marriage to Thomas Moore on January 16, 1967, Karen became a dedicated homemaker, wife and mother. Karen took great pride in caring for her family and keeping a meticulous home.
After raising her children, she returned to nursing and worked as the school nurse for the Mahoning Joint Vocational School during its night classes. She later retired from DeMine, where she worked as a mastectomy and orthotics technician. Karen often talked about this being her most rewarding job throughout her career.
Karen enjoyed spending time with her husband at Geneva-on-the-Lake, sampling their favorite wines at Firehouse Winery, being Tom’s co-pilot when he was employed as a tour bus driver and cherishing her role as “Nana” to her grandchildren.
