Mary Sue Moore

Mary Sue Moore, age 83, of Rhinelander, died at her home on Oct. 20, 2020.

She was born on Sept. 25, 1937, at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hancock, Mich., to John and Mary (Borlace) Glanville. Mary attended schools in Hancock and graduated from Hancock High School in 1954, followed by a two- year degree from Soumi College in Hancock. After her schooling, Mary was married to John Terry Moore on Aug. 8, 1958 and they started their journey throughout the Midwest and Northwest together. Mary and John moved around the country raising their three sons in Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri, Indiana, Idaho, Montana and back to Wisconsin.

Throughout all of the seven states that they moved through, Mary's Cornish pasties were famous. She was also the favorite of many of her sons' friends because of her cookies and brownies.

Mary also enjoyed bowling and was a fixture at the bowling alley from the 1970s through the early 2000s.

Mary is survived by her sons John (Sunna) Moore of Farmington, Minn., Michael Moore of Rhinelander, Jerry (Wendie Cliver) Moore of Stevens Point; grandchildren Adam, Nathan, Mason and Christie; 6 great-granddaughters, brother-in-law Roger (Sherrie) Moore of East Tawas, Mich.; nieces, nephews, other family and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, and stepfather Paul Dennis.

In lieu of flowers the family would ask that you would share a special memory and direct any memorials to the Rhinelander High School Bowling Club.

There will be no formal services for Mary at this time due to the current pandemic we are experiencing. You may leave your private condolences for the Moore family at

The Carlson Funeral Home (715-369-1414) is handling the arrangements for the family.

We knew both Mary Sue and her husband Terry through our work at the U.S. Forest Service and as friends for many years. We particularly enjoyed our evening bridge gatherings. We send our condolences to the Moore family.
