Maria (Mary) Luisa Bardoni Moore, December 28, 1919-June 10, 2017, passed away peacefully in Yreka, California, at Madrone Hospice with family present. She was preceded in death by husband James A. Moore who ran Moore’s Barber Shop in Mount Shasta for many years. She was also preceded in death by her siblings, Joseph Bardoni, Eda Bardoni Smith, Lena Bardoni Bottega, Erma Bardoni Colombero, Carolina Bardoni, and mother and father Clementina and Felice Bardoni.
She is survived by her children, Felice Evans, Pam Svetlik, Kathleen Hanna, and Bill Moore; grandchildren Chris Evans, Sharron Evans, Keith Evans, and Tye Davis; step-grandchildren Brian Fawcett, Liz Fuller, and Tim Hanna; great-grandchildren Hannah Diot and Abigail and Ellie Evans, Maitonee, Myka, Lyka, Ross, and Matthew.
Her loving son Bill Moore and wife Pamela Moore were her main caregivers in her later life, and they brought her much joy and comfort through the years.
Mary was born and raised in Mt. Shasta, California, in a close-knit Italian community. Her parents, Felice Bardoni and Clementina Bardoni, came to the United States in 1908 and finally settled in Mt. Shasta, then called Sisson, California.
Mary attended a business college in San Francisco ad was an accountant who worked for Siskiyou Union High School District for many years. She often said how she loved numbers, and she was a very well-respected accountant for the district. Her family and her work were her life.
When husband James A. Moore was still alive, the two of them camped and fished in many wilderness areas in Siskiyou County. Mary was also a very good athlete, and enjoyed playing sports such as tennis and softball as a young woman.
Mary’s passing marks the end of an era of second-generation Italians born to those immigrants who came to the United States in the early 1900s.
