MOORE – Mary Jacqueline Zephrine Chase

April 23, 1925 – February 10, 2010

Mary Jacqueline Zephrine Chase Moore (Jacqui Moore) passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 10, 2010 at the age of 84.

Jacqui was a native Calgarian and lived most of her life in Calgary. She attended the Convent in Beauharnois near Montreal and St Mary’s School in Calgary. Jacqui’s true passions were her family, especially her grandchildren, the fashion industry (changed from clothing industry) and watching sporting events, especially the Calgary Flames. Jacqui’s passion for fashion began at The Red Door, flourished at Mais Oui, expanded into a buying career with Marshall Fields in Spokane, Washington where she was responsible for seven departments and experienced countless buying trips in New York and Los Angeles. Relocating back to Calgary Jacqui worked for Elaine Kinney on 17th Avenue; which later became Jacqui Moore. There she partnered with a lifelong friend and worked alongside her sister and her family. Closing the store in late 90’s, retirement did not suit Jacqui, she continued to sell women’s fashions from her home. Jacqui will always be remembered for her infectious spirit, love for life and fantastic sense of humour.

Jacqui is survived by daughters, Darice and Jacqueline; sons, Darren and Brian; grandchildren, Kirstin, Jared, Michael Anthony, Louis and Henri; sister Cecile (Baby June); nieces, Lise, Michelle, Nicole, and Suzanne; and daughters-in-law, Sabine and Cora.

A Private Family Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, February 25, 2010, followed by a reception at her daughter Darice’s house from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  1. Dear Jacqueline, Darice, and all of the Moore’s

    My heart is with you at this time. I was saddened to read of Jacqui’s passing – even more so because we had not kept in touch for some years.

    Jaqui and I go back a long time, as you may remember. I started out as a client, became a friend, then an employee and mentor.

    She used to refer to me as “The Prima Donna Bookkeeper” – because I couldn’t concentrate on my work with two seamstresses and whirring sewing machines beside me. Then came the TV, the dog and the grandkids! Not to mention all the visitors that got packed into that wonderful basement room. So, I would pack up as much of the work as possible and carry it home with me where I could work in peace and quiet.

    Don’t get me wrong – I loved all of the interaction there. You never knew who was going to be the next one to come down the stairs!

    I truly adored Jaqui, and would have done almost anything for her.

    She gave me tremendous support and consolation when my own mother died, and I do hope that you have someone to do the same for you.

    Hugs and kind regards,

    Carol Young

  2. Millie and Al Krenzel :

    To all of Jaquie’s family,

    To know her was to love her and we did just that. I am so grateful that we had a wonderful visit just a few days before she died, so it was with much sorrow that we read of her death last weekend. You have lost a beautiful Mother and we have lost a beautiful friend.

    God bless you as you travel through this sad time.

    Millie and Al Krenzel
