Elizabeth Susan Moore, an experienced rider who had been in numerous horse shows, was knocked unconscious in a horseback riding accident and remained in a coma until her death. She was 48-years old.
Mrs. Moore, known as Sue, was assistant personnel director at the Fort Ord Office of Planning Research Corporation. She worked for the company for more than three years and before that was a secretary for the Pacific Bell telephone company in San Jose, California from 1978-1980.
She had lived in Pacific Grove, California since 1980 and had been on the Peninsula previously, in 1972-73, when her husband was stationed there with the Army.
Born in Spokane, Washington, she was an alumna of Washington State University and a 1973 graduate of the Italian course at the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey. She was also an avid bridge player and skier.
Mrs. Moore traveled widely and lived in several places in the U.S., as well as in Japan, West Germany, and Italy because of her lifelong association with the military through her family.
In 1960, she married David R. Moore, now a retired Army lieutenant colonel, in Heidelberg, West Germany, where she was working as a secretary for the U. S. Army.
Mrs. Moore was a member of the Daughters of the United States Army, Heritage Society of Pacific Grove, National Trust for Historic Preservation, and the Monterey Peninsula Museum of Art Association.
A designated scholarship was established in her memory by her husband, LTC David R. Moore, USA (Ret.).
