She was united in marriage to Douglas Ervin Moore Aug. 2, 1918. To this union were born six children, Ervin Wendell, who preceded her in death, William Kenneth of East Moline, Ill., Wayne Robert and Williard LaVerne of Seymour, Mrs. Larry (Helen Rae) Jones at Corydon, and Mrs. Bill (Marianna) Dodson Jr of Montrose, Colo.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Douglas Ervin, one son in infancy, two sisters, one granddaughter, Terry Lee Moore, and one grandson, Bobby Lee Moore.
Her entire life was spent in Appanoose and Wayne counties. For the past several years she was a resident of Seymour. She was a kind and loving mother, wife and grandmother and will be sadly missed by all.
A precious one from us is gone,
A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
