ALMA MOORE was the gift of a daughter born to the
late Frances and James Gary on April 28, 1932, in
Wheelock, TX. She began her life on the right path
by being baptized and becoming an active young
member of New Hope Baptist Church. She brought
great joy to the congregation, playing piano for
choirs and singing praises with them to her Lord.
Alma married Robert P. Moore and together they
began their new life and family in Wichita Falls,
TX, before moving to Dallas, TX.
She worked for AT&T, where she enjoyed lifelong
friendships, even after retirement. She delighted
everyone who had a chance to feast on her delicious
cakes and pies. She is surely in heaven right now
baking her famous pound cake for her Father.
Alma became a devoted member of Golden Gate Baptist
Church under the inspired leadership of Reverend
C.B.T. Smith, where she enjoyed participating in
various member group organizations. After Reverend
Smith's retirement, she then became a member of
Greater Golden Gate Missionary Baptist Church,
where she enjoyed worship, community and spiritual
guidance from the most capable Reverend Fabian K.
Jacko, until her last day.
Alma Moore returned to her Father in Heaven's home
on Feb. 19, 2017. Among those to welcome her into
Heaven's Gate were her mother and father, Frances
and James Gary; sisters, Johnnie Mae Gary, Eula
Beatrice Robinson, and Maggie Stewart; and brother,
Her memory lives on in the hearts of her daughters,
Rhobye Wyatt, Cynthia Moore and Tonja Moore; and
former husband and friend, Robert Moore. Her legacy
lives on in her beloved grandchildren, Kamal Wyatt,
Krysti Thompson, and Taylor Juliana. And the beauty
of her life lives on in her brother, Floyd Gary, &
his family, along with a host of extended family.
