CUMBERLAND — Ferne P. Moore, 93, a resident of Ledgeview Assisted Living Center in Cumberland Foreside, died Oct. 29.

Moore was born in Appleton on March 1, 1921. In 1930, she and her family moved to Bath, where she attended Morse High School. She graduated from Morse in 1938.

She went on to work as a clerk in the hosiery department of J.J. Newberry department store in Bath. In 1941, she began work at the Bath Trust Co. as a teller, and worked there until she married Robert S. Moore in 1950.

At that time she left the bank to start her family. For over a decade, she stayed at home and raised her two children, Linda and David. When she decided to return to banking, Moore started at Bath National Bank as a bookkeeper, and later transferred to First National Bank of Portland. She remained at First National for the next 20 years.

Moore’s interests included dancing, cross-country skiing, camping and traveling. She toured much of Europe, and visited California every year to visit with her sister and nephew. She and her husband also loved their camp at Sebago Lake, and spent much time there after retirement, enjoying boating and spending time with family and other visitors.

Moore was predeceased by her parents, V. George and Mary J. Bovaird Pettengill, and her sisters, Beulah Norton and Doris E. Soucy.

She is survived by her son, David C. Moore, wife Lisa and daughter, Emily Rose, of Riva, Maryland; daughter, Linda A. Moore Gray and husband, Jeffrey, of Yarmouth; grandson, Justin A. Gray, wife Enrica and daughter, Emma Ada, of Milan, Italy; grandson, Devin C. Gray, of New York City; and nephew, Wayne B. Soucy and Ed Walsh, of Rancho Mirage, California.

A viewing was held Nov. 7 at Desmond Funeral Home, in Bath, with a funeral there on Nov. 8.
