According to her obituary, Moore worked on Washington County’s Oleson Road Reconstruction Project public committee, was a member of the Oregon Structural Codes Advisory Board, was a member of the Portland Audubon Society board, was part of the State Disabilities Commission and was a founding member of the Oregon Architectural Barriers Council board.
