Mrs. Jennie Evelyn Workman Moore, widow of George Quentin Moore, went home to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on Monday, February 20, 2017.
Jennie was born in Rock Hill, SC on October 15, 1921, and spent most of her life in the Horse Creek Valley area. She worked in the textile industry until her retirement, and for her last 11 years she lived in Easley, SC, with her son and daughter-in-law, Ronald and Doris Jones Moore.
Jennie was preceded in death by her husband, George Quentin Moore, and a son, James Carroll Moore; as well as her parents, Emory Carroll and Grace Workman; two sisters, Margaret Seefluth and Dot Weatherford; and five brothers, William Carroll (Bob), Roger Lyle (Tunney), John Howard, Heyward Ellis, and Franklin Delano Workman. Jennie was the last surviving member of these brothers and sisters.
Jennie is survived by a son, the Rev. Dr. Ronald Quentin (Doris) Moore; daughter-in-law, Dot (David) Dyar; and five grandchildren, Jenny (Neal) Baldowski, David (Carol) Moore, Tim (Pam) Moore, Phillip (Ellen) Moore, and James Carroll (Melissa) Moore.
She also has 12 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren, along with many nieces and nephews, who lovingly called her "Aunt Jen"; as well as four sisters-in-law, Merdice (Bob), Joanne (Tunney), Shirley (Howard), and Maxine Moore Sherbert.
Ms. Jennie was a faithful, life-long member of the Pentecostal Holiness Church, who was loved by everyone who met her, and especially by those who were privileged enough to have a piece of her "Peanut Butter Cake."
The family will greet friends on Thursday, February 23, 2017, from 6 until 8 at Hatcher Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 3464 Jefferson Davis Hwy., Graniteville, SC.
A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Friday, February 24, 2017, at 11 o'clock in the chapel of Hatcher Funeral Home & Cremation Service, 3464 Jefferson Davis Hwy., Langley, SC, with Ms. Jennie's grandson, the Rev. Mr. Phillip Moore and Bishop Ray Boggs officiating.
Interment will follow in Sunset Memorial Gardens, Graniteville, SC, with the Rev. Mr. Gene Brown officiating.
[Editor's comment: I met Ronald Q. Moore's precious, petite mother when were were students at Holmes Bible College in the late 50s. She was a gentle and quite person and unassuming. Her unique presence was a testimony of a loving and tranquil lady of the highest Christian character. I felt love in her presence and she made a great impression on me and our fellow students. Ron loved and honored his mother and it showed.
I commend Ronald and Doris for their loving care of Ron's mother until her death. She lived a long and fruitful life. Her children and grandchildren now rise up to call her blessed (Proverbs 31:28). One day in the near future we will see Jennie Evelyn Workman Moore again in heaven. We bless the memory of this Godly woman and mother/grandmother.]
