Vivian Moore

PALMYRA — Vivian G. Moore, 84, of Palmyra, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 19, 2019, at Dycora Health Center in Fort Atkinson.

Vivian was born on April 27, 1935, in Beloit, the daughter of Valdon and Marie (Brown) Tiffany.

After graduating from high school, she married Robert A. Moore and God blessed their union with three children. Vivian and Bob raised their three children together in Palmyra until God called Bob home at a young age.

After Bob’s death, Vivian cared for her children on her own. She was a kind and loving mother.

Vivian worked as a homemaker for many years and also worked on the Cold Spring Egg Farm.

For leisure, she loved to bowl. She participated in the Palmyra Bowling League for more than 40 years.

Vivian’s faith also was very important to her, and she was a very involved member of Palmyra United Methodist Church and the various activities there. She invested her time in the Hearts and Hands Quilters Club, the United Methodist Women’s Group, the adult Bible study, and many turkey dinners and bazaars, just to name a few. She saw the importance of helping and supporting her local church, and gave much of her time to serve there.

Vivian was a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and she will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her three loving children, Suezanne (James) Polzin, Robert (Sandra) Moore and William Moore; her four grandchildren, Rebecca (Jens) Nestingen, Curtis (Sara) Polzin, Alicia Moore and Robert Moore; and three great-grandchildren, Ivan and Claire Nestingen, and Graham Polzin.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Robert; and a precious granddaughter, April Moore.
