Helen L. Moore, 95, of Kansas City, MO since 1999, passed away on December 31, 2014. She was born and lived in Ankeny, IA until moving to Sun City, AZ from 1979 to 1999. She loved her family and was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Helen had many varied interests but cooking was her favorite, especially baking pies and cookies. She liked to do all kinds of arts and crafts, but her first choice became painting after moving to Kansas City. Music was important to her all of her life, through singing in high school, working in the music section of a department store, where she met her husband, Earl, and listening to all types of music. Helen was preceded in death by her husband, W. Earl Moore, in 1997, and a son, Michael Moore, in 1985. She is survived by a daughter and son-in-law, Suzanne and Bernard Dierks, Prairie Village, KS; grandsons, Christopher Dierks (Angie), Leawood, KS, Michael Dierks, Overland Park, KS, and Matthew Moore, Camdenton, MO; a granddaughter, Angie Dierks (Chris Brown), North Yarmouth, ME; great-grandchildren, Finn, Allie, Emily, Theo, and Connor; and a sister, Betty Conway, Aitkin, MN. Memorial contributions may be made to Rockhurst High School, 9301 State Line Road, Kansas City, MO 64114.
We will miss not having her with us now, but she has left us with many special memories of our years together.

Sue, Bernie and family:
I am sorry for the loss of your mother and grandmother, She was a remarkable woman who was loved dearly. I will never forget going to her house in Ankeny and spending time with all of you. Aunt Helen was a precious piece of this family and was considered a substitute mother for my mom. I am glad Earl, Mike, and my mom will all be together again in a place where there is peace and happiness.
