Garnette J. Moore of Petoskey, died unexpectedly on Saturday, February 16, 2013 at the age of 64.
Garnette was born on August 31, 1948; the daughter of Elbert and Shirley (Andersen) Anderson in Mackinaw City. She grew up in Petoskey and was a graduate of Petoskey High School, Class of 1966.
On November 26, 1966, she married the love of her life, George “Earl” Moore. Together they shared 46 wonderful years and raised four children who were the center of her universe. She was happiest when she was surrounded by her children and grandchildren who in all things sought out her advice and guidance. Her love knew no boundaries.
In her spare time, Garnette enjoyed her pets, volunteering at Hospice and crafting, like blanket making and scrapbooking. She also enjoyed garage sales on the weekends, searching for that perfect treasure.
She is survived by her husband Earl and by her children, George Earl II (Cindy), Desmond (Jessica), Quinn Moore and fiancé Geno Thomas and Skyler Moore and fiancée Alicia Austin. Her grandchildren include Damian, Kelsey, Andrew, Ella and Natalie as well as great granddaughter Isabella. Her surviving brothers and sisters include Randy and Elmer Bricker, Doug Scott, Donna Bertani and Debbie Bino. She was preceded in death by her parents and by her brothers John and Tom Bricker.
Her family will miss her hugs, her words of encouragement, her warm smile and the quiet early mornings spent over the kitchen table enjoying a simple cup of coffee. Her passage has left a void that will never again be filled and she will forever be remembered and loved.
A memorial mass celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, February 23rd at 11:00 a.m., Fr. Dennis Stilwell will lead the mass. Visitation will be held at the church within the gathering space from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
