Delores A. Moe, aged 87, slipped peacefully into the arms of Jesus at home on December 31, 2016 after a courageous battle with cancer.

God’s grace, her phenomenal attitude and the lovely staff at the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center gave us the gift of much more time with her than we thought possible. Dee loved her family fiercely and enjoyed making the world a more beautiful place through her love of gardening. Nothing pleased her more than digging in the dirt on a warm summer day except perhaps watching her grandkids in their various sports and activities. She was a constant presence in the stands no matter the weather. Her unwavering support, love and encouragement have been foundational in the lives of her family.

The Horner and Carson families, as well as the Cougar families over the years, made Grandma Dee one of their own and she loved spending time with them. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.

Dee is survived by daughter, Shelly Horner (Tom) and son, Greg Moe (Sara) and grandchildren T.J., Justin and Jake Horner, Laura and Anna Moe, Jason Moe (Kate), Melanie Moe and Amanda Moe and several great grandchildren.

Services for Dee will be held on Friday, January 6th at 2:00pm at Christ Church Anglican, 5500 W. 91st Street, Overland Park, KS 66207. A reception will be held at the church immediately following the service to greet the family. Dee’s ashes will be placed at Fort Leavenworth Cemetery alongside her husband, Justin and beloved son, Jeff in a private family ceremony at a later date.

The family requests no flowers and memorial contributions may be made to Kansas City Hospice Foundation, 1500 Meadow Lake Parkway, Suite 200, Kansas City, MO 64114 or The Arbor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Avenue, Nebraska City, NE 68410. The family would like to thank the staff of Christ Church Anglican and Signature Funerals for their support and assistance during this time.
