SHARON, S.C. - Lula Desseree Bratton Moore went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, October 13, 2009.

She departed this life from her home of 40 years at 6644 Lockhart Road, Sharon, SC.

Lula was born in Sharon, SC on March 19, 1932, a daughter of the late Joshua Bratton and Martha Jane Wilkes Bratton. She was the devoted and lov-ing wife of Melton Moore (deceased 1991), and they were the proud parents of eight children.

Funeral services will be 2:00 p.m. Friday, October 16, 2009 at Mt. Do-Well Baptist Church in McConnells, SC with the Rev. Persell Ross, Jr. officiating. Burial will be at St. Luke #2 Baptist Church Cemetery in Sharon.

The family will receive friends Thursday, October 15, 2009 from 6:00-6:30 p.m. at Wright Funeral Home and other times at the home of Strauss Moore Shiple, 103 Grier Street in York. Mrs. Moore may also be viewed from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Thursday.

Mr. and Mrs. Moore were preceded in death by three infant children; Ricardo (1961) and twins, Brenda Sue and Donald Ray (1963). Mrs. Moore was preceded in death by 5 brothers: Lesslie Bratton, Luther (LD) Bratton, Joshua (Deac) Bratton, Jr., Johnny Bratton and Frank Bratton; two sisters; Rebecca (James) Ashley and Mae Emma Bratton, as well as by two very special friends, Mrs. Dora Bell Sanders and Mrs. Lois Jamison.

Lula joined Pleasant Grove Presbyterian Church (then located in Sharon, SC) at an early age. She moved her membership to St. Luke #2 Baptist Church, Sharon, SC after meeting and marrying Melton. She was a faithful and devoted child of God, serving as Church Secretary and Sunday School Superintendant for a time, singing on the Hymn Choir (Secretary) and the Fellowship Choir. Her desire was to participate in all activities of the church, but she had a passion for Ushering, and she served as a Doorkeeper for the Lord (Captain of the First Sunday Usher Team) until her health began to fail. A friendly and outgoing person, Lula never met a stranger, and enjoyed talking with everyone. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She was a retired textile worker, having spent 24 years with Milliken and Company at Lockhart Mill, Lockhart, SC. She was also a member of the AP& B Society, Lodge #46 where she served as Treasurer.
