Mary was born Sept. 10, 1927 in Prescott, Arkansas, and entered into rest Oct. 9, 2015 in Minden. Mary retired from Minden Medical Center where she was a loving and compassionate nurse for many years. She was a strong woman in her faith, her love for people, her compassion and hospitality, her desire to see others know Christ, her physical body and her zest and love of life. It seems only fitting that her favorite scripture is Philippians 4:13 which says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” He is where her strength came from. She is undoubtedly one of the greatest women to walk this earth and has touched many lives in her “short” 88 years. She is known to many as Momma, Grandma and Aunt Mary even if they weren’t related. Although she is no longer here with us physically, she will forever remain in our hearts.
She was preceded in death by her husband Elven Vernon Moore.
She is survived by her sons Randy Moore of Minden, Terry Moore and wife Denise of San Antonio, Texas, daughter Linda Moore Williams and husband Alton of Minden, grandchildren Angie Benton Evans and husband Steve of Benton, Salena Moore Miller and husband Matt of Heflin, Rhonda Moore Rowe of Billings, Montana, Steve Moore of Heflin, Terry Lynne Moore of Tulsa, Oklahoma, great-grandchildren Isaiah and Gracelyn Joy Evans, Heather Daniel and husband Michael, Logan, Haley, Kylie, and Kendall Rowe, Destiny, Faith, and Arrington Moore, Hannah, Jacob, and Hagen Williams, great great-grandchildren Riley Daniel and Hayden Miller, numerous nieces and nephews, and honorary children Phil and Christy Benton and Anita Fontenot.
