Dorothy Jean Moore, often known as “Dottie” by her friends, age 77, of Mabank, Texas (formerly Red Oak, TX) passed away on January 22, 2024 surrounded by her loving family. She was born on January 7, 1947, to Ray and Jessie (Crowe) Black in Birmingham, Alabama where she graduated from Minor High School in 1965. Right out of school she married the love of her life, David W. Moore. Being that he was in the Navy, they moved around quite a bit until they started a family. Throughout her life, Dorothy worked in offices doing clerical work or bartending. When she wasn’t working or with her family, you could find her bowling, playing darts, shooting pool, or fishing with David. She and David were best friends. Their children remembering they had never heard them have a fight. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother (MawMaw). She always made sure they had a cooked meal on the table where they would eat as a family. The family was very close and will dearly miss her Pork Chops, Cube Steak with rice and gravy, and Hamburger steak and gravy. Dorothy was a collector of things. Her family lovingly referred to her as the knickknack queen, collecting things like: Shot glasses, thimbles, and Avon bottles. In her down time, you could find her enjoying a rum and coke or cup of coffee watching reruns on the TV of shows she had seen countless times. And don’t dare turn them off when you think she is asleep because she will know! She will be missed and always loved by those who knew her.
She is preceded in death by her husband David W. Moore; her parents Ray Black, John and Jessie Knight (Crowe); siblings: Mary Black and Ray Knight.
She is survived by her children: Roxanne Michelle Hale and husband Rodney, Shelly Lynn Gribble and fiancé Steve Ledbetter, Stacy Marie Burnard and husband Jody; grandchildren: Austin Fullerton, Chelcee Padgett and boyfriend Eric Sherrard, Trever Hale, Natasha Sanchez and husband Aaron, Ryan Crawley, Sara Richardson and husband Ryan, David Hale, Braidon Gribble; great grandchildren: Mayven, Palmer and Memphis as well as numerous other family members and friends.
The family would also like to extend a sincere thank you to those who helped them get through the last couple of years. These include Margaret Baldridge, Crystal Garcia and the incredible staff at Enhabit Home Health & Hospice. They would have been lost without you all.
