Connie Moore was a familiar face at Schnucks
She was working at Shakey's Pizza when she met Michael Moore. Connie and Mike married on August 28, 1976. She was employed as an in-home daycare provider while raising their five children. She later worked as a cashier at Hilander (Schnucks) in Roscoe, IL.
Connie passed away on August 19, 2023 in Beloit, WI, following a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
Connie loved her children dearly and was passionate about them being hard-working, self-reliant, and accountable. She loved her grandchildren even more deeply but with expectations limited to them eating junk food, making messes, occasionally breaking household items, and otherwise dutifully repaying her children for the shenanigans of their youth.
Parkinson's disease took much of the quality from her life long before it took her life, but she faced it as bravely as anyone could expect and was defiant to the end.
Connie is survived by her children, Patrick (Brynn) Moore of Roscoe, Jonathan (Nicole) Moore of Caledonia, Brendan Moore of Roscoe, Mary (Brian) Wicker of Machesney Park, and Anna Moore of Loves Park, along with her brother, Kenneth (Carol) Fischer formerly of Rockford and Sylvia LaBree formerly of Roscoe, and numerous grandchildren and friends. Connie was predeceased by her parents, Vernon and Verona; husband, Mike; sister, Sandy; and brothers, Myron and Leon Fischer.
Her family sincerely thanks everyone who loved and cared for her over the years, especially her dear friend Alice (Dave) Sutkay. They say, "There isn't a person in the world that had a better friend than our mom had in Allie."
A memorial service was held Saturday, Sept. 2, 2023, in Honquest Family Funeral Homes with Crematory - Roscoe Chapel, 11342 Main St. Roscoe, IL.
Donations can be made in her name to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, or a similar organization.
