George W. Moore

Payette Enterprise
Thursday, February 14, 1918


Geo. W. Moore passed away at the Asylum at Blackfoot, Idaho, on last Saturday evening after an illness of nearly six years. Mr. Moore was stricken with paralysis and other complications nearly six years ago, from which causes he has been confined to his chair the greater part of the time. He bore his afflictions patiently through it all, never complaining, and oftimes doing what he could to assist in the affairs of the house. For the last few months he has gradually grown worse until his mind became somewhat affected and a short time ago it was thought best to take him to the asylum for treatment, but soon after he became suddenly worse and on Saturday a message was sent to Mrs. Moore to come at once as he was not expected to live, and in a few hours another came stating he had passed away. His body arrived in Payette on Tuesday morning and the funeral was held at the Methodist Church Wednesday afternoon conducted by Rev. H. K. Wallis, pastor. Interment was made in the Riverside cemetery. The sympathy of many friends is extended to the bereaved wife, who never tired in her constant care and kindness during the years of affliction.
