Catherine (Boye) Moore passed away at Pine Haven Rehabilitation and Nursing Home on Sunday, September 5, 2021 after a brief illness. Catherine was born in Seacaucus, NJ on February 7, 1927. She was predeceased by her parents Frank and Katherine Boye, her brother William Boye as well as her husband G. Crawford Moore, her oldest daughter and son-in-law Nancy and Malcolm Hood and her nephew William Boye. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Lisa and John Wolferstieg, her grandson and his wife Eugene and Kelly Hood, her nephew Robert Boye and many great nieces and nephews.
Catherine was an active member of the Philmont Reformed Church until her admission into Pine Haven several years ago. She used to like to say that she had traveled full circle as she and her husband were co-administrators of Pine Haven Home when it was known as the county home and she loved to tell stories of how it used to be.
After leaving Pine Haven in 1972, she and her husband were co-administrators of the German Masonic Home in Tappan, NY. They returned to Columbia County in 1976 and she retired. She remained active by being involved with her church and several fire auxiliaries. In her later years she spent most of her time reading and crocheting baby blankets and lap robes that she then donated to those that wanted or needed them.
There is so much more to Catherine’s life than what can be said here. She was known to many as Gramma Moore or Nana Moore and she loved to have babies and children visit her. In the times of Covid, she settled on looking at pictures that her daughter took and brought to her at each visit.
Per Catherine’s wishes, there will be no services. A family graveside service will be held at a later date. If anyone wishes to donate in Catherine’s memory, please remember Everlasting Hope Animal Rescue in Hillsdale, NY as she was very fond of animals.
