Virginia Luise Katharina Moore, 74, passed away on Aug. 31, 2023, in Culbertson.
She was born on Nov. 6, 1948, in Gilching, Germany, to Mariano and Luise Botelho. She attended Catholic school all through grade and high school.
She then married Gary and joined his family of three kids on Nov. 14, 1970, and moved to Glasgow Air Force Base where Gary worked as civil servant.
Later, they transferred to Tooele, Utah, where Virginia and Gary both worked at Tooele Army Depot. During that time, they helped raise Carrie, their granddaughter. In 1992, Gary and Virginia moved back to Culbertson and made this their home.
For years while in Utah and after moving back to Montana, Virginia loved selling, and buying, Avon products.
She was, in recent years, known for her crocheted afghans. She would spend most of her time making afghans to gift to those who were part of her life. At last count, she had made and given away over 200 afghans.
She also enjoyed bingo, card games, board games and reading books.
