She was a member of Coal Valley Church of Clothier, but had attended West Madison Baptist since moving to Madison.
Born Aug. 5, 1926, in Martin County, Ky., she was a daughter of the late Samuel Isaac and Tamsy Preece Muncy of Pilgrim, Ky. She married Albert Moore Jr. on Aug. 18, 1941. They were married 55 years when he passed away in 1996. They were blessed with eight children.
Preceding her in death were her husband, Albert Moore Jr.; sons: Samuel and Fred Moore; daughters-in-law, Linda and Carol Moore; brothers: James Sherman, Abraham Lincoln, Lemuel Harvey and Thomas Arthur; sisters: Elsie Wooten, Thelma Boyles, and Rilda Fannin and many brothers- and sisters-in-law.
Our precious mother loved her family and friends very much. She taught each one of us patience, kindness and love. Surviving her are six children: Ellen Wells of Louisville, Ky., Janet (Paul) Miller of Gahanna, Ohio, Albert Moore of Carroll, Ohio, Danny (Sue) Moore and Shirley (Jerry) Thompson, both of Danville, and Howard (Barb) Moore of Jeffrey; sisters: Winnie Muncy and Martha Jane (Leonard) Moore; sisters in law: Edythe Muncy, Bertina Moore and Jean Moore, and brothers-in-law: Richard Whalen and Marvin Adams.

Additionally, 21 great-grandsons and 13 great-granddaughters survive her along with one great-grandson due in May and a host of nieces and nephews.
She had two very special neighbors that became her grandkids. They came and visited with her, made her laugh, and did little things for her: the late Parker Graffius and Jessica Miller.
