Lola was born Aug.18, 1925, in Mountain Home, Idaho, to John and Louisa Cristobal. In high school, Lola enjoyed playing several types of sports, including basketball and tennis.
Lola met the love of her life, Burton L. Moore, and they were married June 2, 1946, in Mountain Home. They lived in Nampa and later moved to Boise, where they raised their family.
She enjoyed being a homemaker. She found her greatest joys in cooking, keeping house and raising her two children, along with Burt. Her hobbies included stitchery and flower arranging. Lola and family enjoyed bowling and she and Burt were members of mixed leagues for many years. They were loyal BSU Bronco fans with many years of season tickets for football and basketball.
Lola was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, her parents, and one sister.
She is survived by: her daughter, Geri Waer; son Burt Moore Jr. (Pilar): grandchildren Aaron Waer (Jeanette), Clinton Moore, Nicole Jacobson (Ryan) and Penni Allen (Shane); and four great-grandchildren, Todd, Carter, Leyton and Devin, all of Boise. She is also survived by her sisters, Amelia Lothrop and Joanna Tate, and brother John Cristobal.
The family would like to thank the staff of Boise Health and Rehab and Legacy Hospice for their kindness in making her final days as comfortable as possible. We would also like to thank the many staff members at Hillcreast ALF that became extended family to her in the last few years of her life.
She truly felt at home there.
