Darlene Nolte Moore, age 79, of New Braunfels, Texas, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Thursday, May 31, 2018. She was born June 28, 1938 in New Braunfels, Texas, to Chester Nolte and Clara Letsch Nolte. Darlene graduated from New Braunfels High School, Class of 1956. She married Don Moore on January 11, 1958 and they celebrated their 60th anniversary this year. She was a lifelong member of The First Protestant Church, and volunteered throughout her life with Beta Sigma Phi Service Sorority, The Sophienburg Society, The Heritage Society, Meals on Wheels, and Special Olympics of Texas. Darlene’s life revolved around her family and friends. She will be missed by many. Darlene’s brown eyes sparkled when her husband and love of her life would tease her, but snap and crackle shiny black if anyone dare cross her. Darlene loved to read books, absorb knowledge, and was very organized which made her the perfect legal secretary for over 40 years with The Law Offices of Bartram, Reagan, Burrus, Dierkson and Lamon, and special assistant to Lucy and Raymond Bartram at the Texas House of Representatives in Austin, Texas. Darlene could plan her way out of or into any situation, and she encouraged her family to learn, think ahead ‘get your ducks in a row’, serve those in need whenever we could, and always remember our traditions and be proud of where we came from. Darlene Nolte Moore is survived by her ever-loving husband, Don R. Moore of New Braunfels, Texas; her precious sister, Mary Lee Nolte; a son, Dane R. Moore; a daughter, Dawn Moore McCrimmon; grandchildren, Zach McCrimmon, Jason Garcia, Ryley Moore, Maggie Moore, Andre Moore, Isabella Moore; and one great grandchild, Damien Garcia. She was preceded in death by her devoted parents, Chester and Clara Nolte, of New Braunfels, Texas; as well as a granddaughter, Avery McCrimmon. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions in Darlene’s name to Special Olympics Texas, 1804 Rutherford Lane, Austin, TX 78754; or to help in establishing a bench that will be erected at a later date, at New Braunfels Puppy Playland, 590 Schwarzlose Road, New Braunfels, TX 78130. You may come by and sign the register book and view a slideshow of photographs which will be located at Zoeller Funeral Home through Friday. A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, June 8, 2018, at First Protestant Church in New Braunfels.

I always admired how Don and Darlene were such a loving and caring couple. I have heard so many fun stories (mostly about fishing) over the years from my dad and grandfather about the Nolte and Moore families. My grandparents (now their granddaughter) have a cabin next door to the Moore's cabin on the Guadalupe River since the 1950s. I know she was so happy to be at their river cabin and those great times at the river continue today with their families. Its so special to be part of such a fun and interesting history on the river and Darlene leaves a special legacy. I, along with the entire Tumlinson family, are truly sorry for the loss of such a wonderful lady and will keep Darlene in our prayers. Sincerely, Debbie

It was 1976. I was only 21, a newlywed, and hated commuting to work in downtown SA. I answered an ad in the Herald for a job opening in NB. I got a call for an interview and that's the day I met this really sweet and very special lady named Darlene Moore. She was office manager for a local law firm and convinced Attorneys Tom Burrus and JC Reagan to hire me, though I had no legal experience. The rest is history - I'm still with the same firm 42 years later. I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Darlene for many years, up until her retirement. I was so young and she was always there for me, no matter what. I loved her like a second Mom and I learned a great deal from her. Her home, her family, her church, and her job were all very important to her and she strived for excellence every day in everything she did. Her door was always open if I needed to talk. One thing she often said that stuck with me all these years is that "every cloud has a silver lining - you just need to look for it". I'm so thankful that our paths crossed. She always had such a beautiful smile and a kind heart. My thoughts and prayers are with Don - her constant companion - and also with Dane and Dawn and their families - during this very difficult time. She will be missed.

I will always remember Darlene with great fondness. She was a former docent at the Museum of Texas Handmade Furniture, a dedicated member of the Heritage Society of New Braunfels, and gave me incredible support. I loved seeing her and Don at the picnics and gatherings. Her smile brightened our world.
