CLANCY, LYDENA JANE (MOORE)
It is with great sadness the family announces the
passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Lydena Jane Clancy. Dene was born April 5, 1918 in Stoughton, Sask. She completed public and high school in Stoughton and then moved to Port Arthur, Ontario in 1938 where she found work at the Can Car Foundry and was a riveter (Rosie the Riveter Gals) during the war years. It was there she met and married Melville Rogers Moore, in 1948 with son Douglas and daughter Karen they moved to a new pulp & paper town, Terrace Bay, Ontario. There was no highway to Terrace Bay and at the time everything was brought to the town by railway which bonded all the early families together.
