A few weeks ago, we brought you Nettie Moore’s story. The unofficial mayor of West Colfax lived on Utica Street since 1927, when that part of town was still undeveloped prairie. She spoke with us about her role shaping the city’s growth around her. She knew her pacemaker was failing.
Moore died in her home on Monday, surrounded by her family. She was 96 years old.
Her family will hold an open visitation at the Olinger Crown Hill funeral home in Wheat Ridge on Thursday, Feb. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m. COVID-19 restrictions mean only 30 people can be present at one time, so a service will also be live-streamed on Friday at 11 a.m. on the funeral home’s Facebook page. You can also check her obituary page for updates about the service next week.
Moore’s granddaughter-in-law, Amy Moore, told us her family spent a lot of time with her during her last weeks. She said city officials, like Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen, also visited before she passed.
