Rigmor Nina Moore died in her sleep on Monday, March 24, 2014, in her home near Havana, Florida. She was 92 years old.
Rigmor was born in Masnedsund, Zealand, Denmark on February 11, 1922. Her parents were Alma and Kristian Kristiansen. Her father was a train conductor.
Rigmor attended elementary school in Masnedsund, middle school in nearby Vordingborg where her family had relocated to, and finished her education in Copenhagen when she and her family took up permanent residence there.
She was employed from the time she was a teenager, first in a bookstore, then in the shipping department of a paint manufacturer, and then in several different departments of the Danish National Government, particularly the Department of Defense.

When a small Corps-size NATO subordinate command was organized to provide command and control of land forces in Jutland, Denmark and Schleswig-Holstein, West Germany, a Danish Major General was selected as the first commander. The Commander, MG F.B. Larsen chose Rigmor to be his personal secretary. Four months later , on February 11, 1963 the first American Officer arrived on station, and the US flag was raised for the first time in front of Headquarters Allied Land Forces Schleswig-Holstein and Jutland. On October 11, 1963, that Officer, Major Ernest Winfield Moore and that secretary, Rigmor Kristiansen Lohne, were married in Plon, Schleswig-Holstein, West Germany. In August 1965 they were reassigned to a new duty station in the United States. They retired from the US Army on 31 July 1977 and celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary on October 11, 2013.

Planning a Funeral
Life ChoicesMost of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.
Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own arrangements.
Please call us at 850-539-4300 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.
Why Pre-Plan?Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.
Immediate ArrangementsIn Time of Need
We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making immediate arrangements.
Please call us at 850-539-4300 to make arrangements in person with a caring, professional Funeral Director.
