To most people in the Republican Party in Starke County, Ione Moore was thought of as “Mrs. Republican.” A Starke County office holder and faithful party worker, Mrs. Moore was given many awards by the local party, and only three years ago received a special state certificate for her years of service to her community by then-Secretary of State Todd Rokita.
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 p.m. today for Mrs. Moore at the Braman and Son Memorial Chapel in Knox. She passed away at the age of 92 on Friday.
Besides the special state award, Mrs. Moore was the 1997 Schricker Award winner and was the Senior Volunteer of the Year in 1996.
