Moie moved to Waukesha from Minneapolis with her foster family in 1963. At that time, she met the love of her life, Jack. They were married on February 7, 1970. They were blessed to be at each other’s side for 51 years. She graduated from Waukesha South Campus in 1965. She enjoyed baking, fishing, gardening, bird watching, playing Scrabble, crossword puzzles, playing cards with her grandbabies and gambling trips to the casino. She loved to travel to Las Vegas and to Minnesota to visit her twin sister. She retired from AT&T after 22 years and was able to spend her retirement in the company of her family and friends. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
