In Memoriam Condolences

Mary Lou Moore In Memoriam
MARY LOU MOORE Mary Lou Moore went to be with Her Lord and Savior Tuesday, October 29, 2013. Mary Lou was first and foremost an Educator. Her 62 years of active teaching included Lincoln Street School, Lassen View Elementary, and Gerber Elementary here in Tehama County. She received her Masters in English as a Second Language and as part of that process taught in Jamaica, Peru, and China. At the age of 60 Mary Lou attended a ceremony in the Rose Garden of the White House before heading out as a member of the Peace Corps and the first volunteers into Eastern Europe. She was then hired by the United States Information Agency and taught teachers how to teach English in Hungary, Poland, Latvia, and Lithuania. | After 8 years of service she returned to Red Bluff and continued teaching in programs such as E Scholar to help people get their GED's. Health issues required her to step back from teaching just this past July. Mary Lou is survived by her four children and their spouses: Debbie and Pat Wagner, Jeff and Virginia Moore, Rod Moore, Roberta Moore, Jon and Tara Moore. There are eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Mom was the spiritual rock of our family. Her steadfast faith even in the midst of great life struggles and challenges was an inspiration and encouragement to each of her children and to all those who knew her. Mom had always said she would go anywhere in the world God sent her as long as He took care of her children. She went and He did. While there is great sadness at losing our mother, we all take great comfort in knowing she is now with Jesus, free of pain, and experiencing the glory of Heaven. A Memorial and Celebration of Life will take place at the First Church of God, Luther and South Jackson Streets, Red Bluff, at l:00 pm on Saturday, November 16th. Flowers can be sent to the church for the Celebration.
