July 6, 1935 ~ September 9, 2017
Our cherished Frances Inez (Potts) Moore quietly passed away on September 9, 2017, surrounded by members of her loving family on both sides of the veil.
Frances was born on July 6, 1935, in Lehi, Utah, to her goodly parents, Harold and LaDelle Potts. On December 31, 1953, she married Larry Moore. Three years later they were sealed in the Salt Lake City LDS Temple. She faithfully followed Larry, as he pursued a career in Air Force aviation, that took them from Africa to Hawaii.
Together they had five children: Jim (Cindy); Jill (Blake); Janice (Steve); Jay (Marjorie); and Jeff (friend, Pamela). As Larry was away defending our country in two wars, Frances was ever the valiant defender of her home. Her children (five), grandchildren (16), great-grandchildren (39), and great-great- grandchild absolutely adore her.
Frances' life embodied the Savior's admonition to love and serve one another, without expecting anything in return. No one entered her home without being physically fed and spiritually uplifted. To every burden laden individual, she was their champion and benefactor.
She had a deep abiding love for our Savior and His gospel. She served for over 30 years in the extraction and indexing program. She was an expert in the Old English language. Never wanting attention, she served as a faithful visiting teacher up until the last week of her life. A life worn out in service indeed.
Frances is survived by her five children, 16 grandchildren (Clay Christensen passed away in February), and 39 great-grandchildren, and one great-great-grandchild. Also survived by two sisters, Dorothy Henroid and Donna Goble. She was preceded in death by her husband, Larry; her parents; brother, Van Potts; sisters, JoAnn Williams and Ila Nelson.
The family would like to thank the angels in the Cardiology department at McKay Dee Hospital, especially Dr. John. Your expertise gave us another quality year with Mom. Thank You!
The family will host a viewing on Friday, September 15, 2017, from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday morning from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. at the Rogers & Taylor Funeral Home (111 N. 100 East, Tremonton). Funeral services will be held Saturday, September 16, 2017, at 11 a.m. in the Tremonton 1st Ward LDS Chapel (166 N. Tremont St.). Interment in the Tremonton Riverview Cemetery.
