Obituary

Beatrice E. Moore, 90, of Loudon Ridge, fell asleep in the Lord on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at her home surrounded by her family.

"Bea" was born in Somerville, MA on Oct. 6, 1928, to George E. and Christina (MacKinnon) Turner. At a young age her family moved to Stoneham, MA. She graduated from New England School of Theology. She came to the "Ridge" to teach Vacation Bible School at the Loudon Advent Christian Church where she met and married her beloved husband, Wendell A. Moore, in 1953.

Her passion was her Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, her family, her church family and friends, and cats. She was active in her local church as a deaconess, teaching Sunday School, VBS, and Bible studies while raising her family and assisting on the farm. She was interested in foreign missions and served the Advent Christian denomination as President of the Women's Home and Foreign Missions Society (WHFMS). She served on both the Eastern Regional and National conference boards. The highlight of her service was her trip to visit the mission work in the Philippines in 1994. Bea was also a member of the Concord Christian Women's Club, part of the Stonecroft Ministries.

Bea was active in the Loudon Elementary School PTA and served as its president. In 2009, she was honored as the Loudon Citizen of the Year.

She was a 4-H leader for the Ridge Runners 4-H Club and Merrimack County 4-H for many years where she taught many children in the Loudon area to sew.

Bea was very creative and loved to paint. She was a member of the White Mountain Decorative Painters Guild and sold her works of art at the sugar house at the family farm as well as many area craft fairs.

She was predeceased by her parents, her husband, and her brother, George Turner.

She is survived two sons, Karl C. Moore of Loudon and Larry J. Moore and his wife, Melissa, of Loudon; two daughters, Linda S. Flewelling and her husband, Gere, of Loudon and Diane J.

She is also survived by two sisters, Barbara (Turner) McLaughlin of Wade, ME, Ruth (Turner) Pifalo, and her husband, Paul, of Tewksbury, MA; one brother, John E. Turner, Jr. and his wife, Donna, of Stoneham, MA.; and two sister-in-laws, Charlene Turner of Milton, FL and Barbara (Moore) Burtt of Lee, MA.
