St. George, Utah – Louise Sorenson Moore passed away June 27, 2011. She was born in Richfield, Utah on January 25, 1933 to Lee Ray and Fontella Black Sorenson. Her family later moved to Provo, Utah where Louise spent the majority of her school years.
In 1970, she settled in St. George with her family where she opened her own janitorial business, as well as working for the LDS Church as a custodian. Through example and a little bit of nagging, she taught her children the value of hard work. She was a woman who loved to serve and give to others. She even served as her ward librarian for twenty years.
In her free time she loved working in her yard, crocheting, reading, doing crossword puzzles and working at the St. George LDS Temple. She had a passionate dislike for corn, snakes and mice.
Louise is survived by her four sisters: RaeOnda (Don) Baxter, Colleen (Wren) Scott, Lois Matthews (twin to Louise) and Palma Van Wagenen; her eight children: Ken (Doug), Doug (Lynne), Sheri (Jeff) Butler, Kimball (Peggy), Steve (Victor), Korey (Carolyn), Karen Scott and DeAnn (Richard) Prestige; 18 grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.
