Carol Lynn Moore-Gibson

April 22, 1950 — December 30, 2014

Carol Lynn Moore Gibson, 64, a lifelong resident of Chinook, died unexpectedly in Portland on December 30, 2014, surrounded by the family she loved.. A descendant of pioneer Chinook residents, Carol was one of four daughters born to Hoover and Virginia Wisner in Ilwaco on April 22, 1950. She was a 1968 graduate of Ilwaco High School. Following high school Carol worked for Telephone Utilities in Ilwaco. In 1990 she graduated from the nursing program at Clatsop Community College and received her registered nurse license. Following a brief time at Seaside Hospital, Carol returned to the place of her birth, Ocean Beach Hospital in Ilwaco. There she was employed for the ensuing years as a staff nurse, charge nurse and IV therapy nurse. Carol joined the staff at Harbors Home Health as a hospice nurse before opening her own facility in Chinook several years ago, Family and Friends Adult Foster Care. Carol was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic faith and in past years she was a lay presider at St. Mary's Parish in Seaview. Gardening was Carol's true calling...period! She resided in Chinook in a home built in 1890 by her great-grandparents Martin and Minnie Anderson. Following some renovation, she made it a showcase of her gardening talents, featuring many native plants and flowers and enjoyed decorating it for Halloween, Christmas and other special events. Carol loved to clam, pick native wild mountain blackberries, was a home canner, and collectors of angels. She was the Seattle Seahawks "13th Woman"--a true blue dedicated fan. Carol was very close to her family, always enjoying family get-togethers.. She loved attending the grandkids various sport activities and also enjoyed "kidnapping" them for a special time together. Her grandchildren and family called her "Basha", a loving name she embraced to the point of having a personalized license plate. Carol married Phillip Moore in 1968 and they were parents of sons Scott and Craig and daughter Lisa. In 2008 she married Ted Gibson who survives residing at the family home in Chinook. Survivors include daughter Lisa (Dave) McKee; son Craig (Cindy) Moore; step-daughter Annessa Gibson; grandchildren Anthony and Brittainie Wirkkala, Alexa Wirkkala, Austin Wirkkala, Carson Moore and Cailyn Moore; mother Virginia Wisner; siblings Sharon (Augie) Pedersen, Donna (Dick) Beller, and Toni Wisner; nieces and nephews Nels, Matt and Jake Pedersen and Rodney, Ryan and Brianna Beller; great-grandchildren Kayden and Taytum Wirkkala; father-in-law Henry Lee Blankenship; sister-in-laws Karen Arness and Kelly Blankenship; brother-in-laws Mike Gibson and Jeremy Blankenship. She was preceded in death by her father Hoover Wisner and her son Scott Moore. Celebration of her life and reception will be Thursday, January 8, 2015, 4:00 PM at the Chinook School Gym. Family graveside service will be Thursday morning at Ilwaco Cemetery. Memorials are requested to the Ilwaco Baseball Program in care of Kevin McNulty, PO Box F, Ilwaco, WA 98624.
