Gai Wilcock Moore was born March 10, 1921, and passed peacefully in her home in St. George, Utah on November 24, 2020.
Mom was the eighth child born to Hyrum Evans and Myra Mayall Henrie in Panguitch, Utah. Mom was raised in Hatch where she soon met and married Gale Otto Wilcock on September 1, 1939. Seven children were born of this union. Gale passed away on April 18, 1990. They were married for 50 years. After Gale's passing, she moved to St. George where she attended the senior dances held in Hurricane. There she met and married Edward Moore on August 28, 1999. Ed passed away on April 7, 2015. Mom remained in her home in St. George until her passing at the age of 99.
Mom was an excellent cook and was known far and wide for her expert pie making. One never left her home without first having a piece of pie.
She was gifted at playing the piano, mostly by ear, and she entertained at many care centers playing ragtime piano. She loved to dance and sing. She was called to play the organ at the temple which was a joy to her.
Mom never knew a stranger and those who crossed her path felt of her love and compassion as well as her love for the Savior.
Mom had seven children and raised them in Hatch. They are:
Judy Gai Davis (Lamond)
Dayne -- deceased 2019 (Elizabeth)
Alyce Henderson (Norm --deceased 2019)
Many, many grand, great, great-great children call her grandma. She was loved and was an example to all. She will be greatly missed. We love you, Mom.
The family wishes to send our gratitude and love to those caregivers and medical staff who so lovingly and carefully took care of Mom.Graveside services will be held Tuesday, December 1, 2020 at the Panguitch City Cemetery.
