Kathryn Juanita Moore

Marietta - Early morning Saturday, November 20, 2021 the world lost a beautiful soul, Kathryn Juanita Moore at the age of 97 years young. Her journey in life began in Gainesville, TX on December 2, 1923, born to George and Frances (Bennett) Porter.

Kathryn grew up in Gainesville and was a 1941 graduate of Gainesville High School. She continued her education at Texas Women's University majoring in nutrition. Kathryn married David Wade "D.W." Moore on September 13, 1943 in Gainesville. He preceded her in death on December 31, 2001.

Kathryn was a longtime area resident moving to Marietta, OK in January of 1946. She worked as a telephone operator in the 40's & 50's for Southwestern Bell. In the 80's she worked as the Librarian for the Chickasaw Library System. Kathryn's love for educating others and passion for reading made her a very successful Librarian. When she wasn't working as a Librarian, she worked as a census taker. Kathryn was a member of the Women's Missionary Union since 1946 and a member of the Rose Garden since 1947. Her favorite membership was with the Marietta's First Baptist Church. Kathryn loved spending time with her family and friends, but her family was her main priority.
