Daisy M. Goracke

Daisy M. Goracke, 99, peacefully passed away on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at the Deseret Health and Rehabilitation Center, Smith Center.

Daisy was born on May 29, 1913 in Smith County, KS, the daughter of Randall Sr. and Elizabeth (Metcalf) Moore. On August 6, 1935 she married Diamond Goracke in Phillipsburg, KS. Although Dime and Daisy had no children together, they treated their nieces and nephews as they were their own. They loved people and went out of their way to make others feel special.

Daisy was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and ladies VFW auxiliary. She attended the First Baptist Church in Smith Center and loved the Lord. While still in high school Daisy started losing her hearing which got progressively worse and therefore, she was unable to attend church and many other public functions in later years. Even though she couldn't always hear the best, this never stopped her from being full of life and loved to visit with all her family and friends. Daisy was very self sufficient living by herself until just recently, still taking care of her yard work and tending to her flowers. Daisy also enjoyed crossword puzzles and reading her favorite books, Harlequin novels.

Daisy is survived by a sister, Nettie Carpenter of Derby; a brother, Randall Moore Jr. of Smith Center and a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, nephews and great-great nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, two brothers, Donald "Shorty" and Waldean "PeeWee" Moore and a sister, Jessie Terrell.

Immediately following the graveside services, a lunch reception and sharing of memories will be held at the All Faiths Funeral Chapel.
