Raymond D. Moore

Raymond D. Moore, 92, died at The Village in Indianola on July 6, 2014. His body has been donated to science. A Memorial Service will be held 11 a.m. at the First United Methodist Church in Indianola on Saturday, Aug. 2.

Raymond was born June 4, 1922, to Reverend Forest A. and Ida Freeman Moore, the seventh son in a family of 12 children in Poweshiek County. He grew up in various Methodist parsonages in Iowa, graduating from Center High School in Johnson County.

After working on a farm near Muscatine for several years, Raymond was inducted into the United States Army in 1945. He served in Okinawa and came back to Iowa in 1946. On Aug. 17, 1948, he married Marjorie Weber in Liberty Pole, Wis.

Raymond received a B.A. degree from Simpson College in January 1950, then graduated from seminary at Boston University in 1954. In the Iowa Conference of the United Methodist Church, he served churches at Broadhorn, Liberty Center, Carl-Mt. Etna, North Liberty-Tiffin, Rippey-Fairview, Moulton Circuit, Killduff-Reasnor, Mediapolis-Sperry, Dunlap-Dow City, Sigourney and Brooklyn.

He served the Annual Conference in various roles: Chair of Business and Agenda, Chief Teller and Chair of Rules of Order and was a mentor to several younger pastors. Besides serving the churches, one of his strong interests was missions, with participation in trips to Central America and various places in the United States. Upon retirement to Knoxville, he served as visiting pastor at Knoxville UMC and then as part-time chaplain at the VA Hospital.

Family vacations were a high point in his life; the family camped coast to coast and visited many national parks and historic sites. He traveled to the Holy Land, Europe, England, Okinawa and other places of interest. His retirement years were filled with gardening, fishing and reading. In 2007, Raymond and Marjorie moved to The Village in Indianola.
