Elizabeth Eaton Moore of Greensboro, GA, passed away on July 30, 2020 at St. Mary’s Hospice House in Watkinsville, GA, at the age of 97. Born January 3, 1923 in Chatsworth, GA, she was the youngest of James and Jessie Dodd Eaton’s seven children.
As a young child, Elizabeth moved with her family to Hancock County, Georgia, where she attended school. She met Russell Moore when he and his father came to her childhood home to buy a hog. She said she knew when she met him that he was the one for her. They were married for 51 years and raised three sons together. Having lived through the Great Depression, and the rationing of World War II, she saw value in most everything, never wanting to throw anything away that might be of use later. She worked at various sewing plants and a poultry plant, but she enjoyed her life as a homemaker the most. She loved to work in her vegetable garden, cooking, preserving, and canning, and she was well known for her sweet potato pie and black walnut cake.
Elizabeth was a person of faith, always keeping her Bible close. Listening to gospel quartet music was a favored pastime. She was a member of the Liberty United Methodist Church, where she enjoyed going as long as her health permitted.
Elizabeth was preceded in death by her parents, all of her siblings, her husband, Russell O. Moore in 1994, her son, James Russell Moore in 2018, and her daughter-in-law, Shirley Moore in 2018. She is survived by sons, Kenneth Moore (Paula), Richard Moore (Pam), six grandchildren, Zack Moore, Carla Wood (John), Sara Beth Pinson (Andrew), Robin Lanier (Chase), Kimberly Casto (Matt), and Daniel Moore, and four great-grandchildren, Mary Jo Wood, Cullen Wood, Amelia Lanier, and Dottie Casto.
