After the death of her father, when she was 13, she joined Westbrook Church of the Nazarene on the West side of Indianapolis. She always missed her dad throughout her life.

She married Charles Robert Moore on December 23, 1950. She cared for her brother until his death in 1952 from melanoma. She supported her husband while he attended Olivet Nazarene Col-lege. During her time working at St. Mary’s in Kankakee, Illinois, she and Bob adopted David and Ginger. She then became a pastor’s wife while her husband pastored sev-eral Church of the Nazarene congregations in Indiana, Nevada, and Florida. During this time, she also cared for her mother who died of Alzheimer’s. By the time of her re-tirement, after 50 years in nursing, she had worked in over 30 hospitals. Pat was in-strumental in the formation of Ft. Myers Community Hospital in Florida with an empha-sis on their surgery department. For a time, she taught nursing and health services.

In retirement, she and Bob moved to Cincinnati, Ohio and finally to Pleasant View, Tennessee in 2012. She loved being a nurse. She also loved to read and quilt. She did not love to cook, do housework, or move, but she did all three very well. She loved her children immensely, but her greatest joys were her two grandsons.
