Reflections of A Life Well Lived

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens, a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
A Time To Be Born
Leila Tucker Moore was born on October 7, 1923. A gorgeous little girl was born the third child of the late Minnie Tucker Simpson in Ridgeway, South Carolina.
A Time To Love
Leila met the love of her life. She was united in holy matrimony to the late Mr. Earl Moore Sr. on November 4, 1944. Out of this union ten children were born.

A Time For Service To Mankind
Leila was a wonderful homemaker, loving mother, caring grand/great-grandmother, devoted sister and aunt. She devoted many years to caring for children. She loved to cook and garden.
A Time To Go Home
Gabriel’s horn sounded, the Angels were alerted and she was transitioned from her earthly residence on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. She recognized her Lord and Saviors voice and never looked back.
