Moyie met her husband Verl at Vici, Oklahoma in the fall of 1972. When Moyie and her cousin Wayne Lookingbill were driving around at Woodward, Oklahoma. Verl saw her and Fell in Love with her.

She loved to make quilts. She cut out and pieced together well over 100 quilts for her sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and many friends. Moyie loved to bowl in the league at Dalhart, she went to Reno, Nevada and Kansas City, Kansas to bowl in the bowling nationals. She had a collection of bowling nicknacks that she would always add to so she could have something to remember the fun that she had while she bowled at the different places. Her bowling partner was her mother. Moyie loved to travel the back roads with Verl to see where the road went to. Moyie loved to go to see the leaves as they were turning colors in the fall and would always say, “I don’t see any hi-line wires so we must be lost”. Due to her health problems, she couldn’t get around like she wanted to so she talked to her family on the phone a lot and spent a lot of time on her computer on facebook or playing games.
