Carrie Mae Moore was born February 22, 1923 in West Point, MS. to
Luke and Emma Richardson. Carrie was the 4th of 5 children. Her parents, as well as all of her siblings proceeded her in death.
On July 6, 1942, Carrie married L C Moore and they shared 54 years of happiness until his death October 25, 1996. To this union 4 sons (Sammie, Kenneth, Dyrell, Timothy) & 1 daughter (Maxine) were born. Two sons
(Sammie, Timothy) proceeded her in death.
Sister Moore, Momma Moore, Granny, Granny-Gran or Mom was known
as a very spiritual woman. She dedicated herself to Jehovah and was baptized
November, 1962, as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Carrie took her ministry
and service to Jehovah very seriously. She was always out in service. She had the stroke February 5, 2022. On February 4, 2022, we mailed two letters that she had written to people sharing the good news from the Bible.
Reading all of the publications was another thing that she was known for.
Whenever we attended Conventions and got new releases, she read them cover to cover in no time. She would even highlight points that she wanted
to remember during her reading. So yes, she was a serious student of the Bible. Carrie was also known for her generosity! No one was a stranger to her. Everyone loved camping out at the Moore home, whether in St Louis, MO or West Point, MS, because Carrie was going to feed you and feed you well. When you left, you were fully satisfied. For as long as we can remember, she always fed the Circuit Overseers, District Overseers and others in Full-Time Service. Very generous!! And who could forget her sense of humor!! Anyone who spent five minutes with our mom can tell you that she was a barrel of laughs. No matter what was going on, she could find something to cheer you up.
She was NEVER at a loss for words.
On February 4, 2022, Carrie had a stroke, which devastated her, as well as us.
Every once in a while, we would see the ‘old’ Carrie. On September 12, 2022
our mother, grandmother and granny-gran peacefully slept away. We so look
forward to being reunited with her shortly in Paradise. John 5:28, 29 gives us
the assurance that we will. Carrie leaves to cherish her memory:
2 Sons, Dyrell and Kenneth Moore. 1 daughter, Maxine Thomas. 1 son-in-
law, Michael Thomas, Sr. 1 daughter-in-law, LaTonya Moore, 16 grandchildren:
Michael, Jr; Matthew & Kim; Mashaun & Joanna; Ashleigh; Gerald & Sheila;
Tamara; Toni & Robert; Shalunda; Kenneth, Jr & Kendra and Tanya & Jason.
Also, with fond memories of Granny gran are: Xoe, Mikey, Mori, Gavin, Harlee,
McKenzie, Easton, Andrew; Joshua P and Julia P and a host of nieces, nephews,
cousins and friends.
Carrie Moore touched the hearts of many with her wisdom and understanding.
She will be dearly missed by all who came in contact with her and loved her.
