Mrs. Moore was an expert in crocheting, needlepoint and counted cross stitch. During her lifetime she produced many beautiful hand made treasures from pictures to bedspreads, tablecloths and quilts. Her family and friends were often the happy recipients of her lovely handiwork. In her younger days she always had beautiful plants and flowers and loved to stroll through her flower garden.
Mrs. Moore was an active member of First Baptist Brandon for many years. She served in the nursery at FBC for over 10 years, not just on Sundays, but for Vacation Bible School and any other occasions when babies needed rocking. She was also active in the Special Needs Ministry and Women’s Ministry. She was a faithful member of her Life Group.
She was also involved in Threads for Life, making blankets and quilts for preemies and newborns in local hospitals. Her hands were seldom idle.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Nursery Ministry at First Baptist Brandon. 309 S. College Street Brandon, MS 39042
