In Memoriam: Carol Moore (Jan. 3, 1932 – Dec. 9, 2023)

Carol Storment Moore, 91, died Dec. 9, 2023. She was born Jan. 3, 1932, to Myron and Mildred Storment in Orofino, Idaho. The Storments moved from Idaho to San Bernardino, Calif., when Myron became a Post Office Inspector in 1942. At the end of WWII, Myron was transferred to Salinas, Calif., where Carol graduated from high school in 1949.  

While attending Hartnell College in Salinas, Carol was a very good student and her kind nature made her popular with her peers. She was Homecoming Queen when she met Winston Moore. On Sept. 14, 1952, she married Winston.

Winston and Carol moved to Santa Cruz, Calif., in 1961 to start their family and his dental practice. The practice flourished, as did the family, having three sons. Carol was very civically-minded, never hesitating to lend a helping hand to those in need.  The Children’s Home Society was her service organization where she served dutifully over the years.  

Carol and Winston lived in Santa Cruz until 1997 when he retired, and he and Carol moved to Mill City to be closer to their kids. Carol and Winston embraced their new home town and their charitable nature benefited their new community. Carol and Winston were married for over 55 years at time of Winston’s passing in 2008. 

Carol then lived in Wilsonville for the remainder of her years where she enjoyed gardening, visiting with family and friends, game nights and volunteering with various organizations.

Carol was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. Carol is predeceased by her parents and her sister, Dolores (Fitz). She is survived by her brother, Robert Storment; her three children, David, Thomas and Gregory; and her seven grandchildren, Celia, McKenna, Dominique, Thomas, Winston, Carson and Addison.

A Celebration of Life will be held on June 8 in Santa Cruz. Carol’s ashes will be spread in the same place as Winston’s.
