Georgette Moore

Georgette Moore, 93, a lifelong resident of Lassellsville, New York, entered into eternal rest on March 28, 2014.

Born in Franc Waret, Belgium in 1920, Georgette was the beloved daughter of Louis and Henriette Bonnardot Fontaine. She was predeceased by her former husband, Jesse Moore, who passed away in 1998. She met Jesse in Franc Waret when he was serving in the U.S. Army during World War II. As a war bride she arrived in the U.S. in 1946.

Georgette devoted her entire life to her family and will be greatly missed by her son and daughters, along with countless other people whose lives she touched in her 93 years of life. One of Georgette’s greatest joys in life was being a mother to her six children and loving grandmother to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her love and support for her children was never ending and for that they will forever be grateful. Georgette found great pleasure in helping others throughout her life, especially those who were in need. She also had a genuine love for all animals. Her loving heart always found the best in everyone she encountered in life.

Georgette enjoyed returning to Belgium and France each year to spend time with her loving brother, Georges Fontaine, sister-in-law, Marthe, and all of her cousins.

Georgette worked for various employers through the years and retired from the Fulton County Dept. of Social Services in 1994 at the age of 74. As a case aide for the Department of Social Services, she helped many families in Fulton County and enjoyed the services she was able to provide.

Georgette is survived by her six children, Anita (Joseph) Ruff of Greenwich, Audrey (Terry) Saltsman of Johnstown, Lucy Moore of Malta, George Moore of Lassellsville, Claudette (Art) Moore-Geesler of Lassellsville, Cynthia (Thomas) Pollard of Greenville, South Carolina. Georgette had 18 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Georges Fontaine of Namur Belgium; several cousins who reside in Belgium, and France.

A Catholic Mass will be celebrated at the Holy Trinity Church, 205 Glebe Street, Johnstown, NY on Saturday, April 5th, at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are respectfully requested to be sent to the Brennan Humane Society, Gloversville, NY.
