    Mrs. Moore was born in Milwaukee on Jan. 19, 1928, to Clement and Lorraine Hintz Strong.
    She married George Lessard in Milwaukee and the couple had five children. Mr. Lessard preceded his wife in death in 1968.
    Later, she married John Robinson and Quentin Moore, both of whom also preceded Mrs. Moore in death.
    Her family said she had many hobbies such as reading, board games and bingo. Mrs. Moore was an avid fan of the Milwaukee Brewers and Green Bay Packers, and she liked to attend the Ozaukee County Fair every year.
    Mrs. Moore was a member of the Landt-Thiel American Legion Auxiliary in Saukville and was an active resident at Lasata.

    She was preceded in death by her parents, husbands, two children, sister Geraldine Pliska, one great-grandchild and brother-in-law Harry Pliska.
    Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11, at Mueller Funeral Home in Grafton. Deacon Scott Wiese of St. Joseph Catholic Parish will officiate.
