Lois Jean Caldwell Moore was born on May 2, 1929 in Arlington, Texas as the seventh child to George W. Caldwell, Jr. and Fannie Mae Tyson Caldwell. She attended public schools in Pflugerville, Fort Worth, and Austin, Texas. Lois professed her faith in Jesus Christ at an early age at Saint Mary Missionary Baptist Church in Pflugerville and was baptized by Reverend I.N. White. She was very active in the church. She was a Deaconess and Sunday School Teacher. She was part of the Mission Society and sang in the choir where she was choir president for many years. She loved to sing, especially hymns. She met her husband of 44 years, Charles Moore, Sr. and married him on April 2, 1948. He preceded her in death. Lois was an excellent cook and enjoyed cooking for her family and friends. This love of cooking afforded her the opportunity to cook for three Governors of the State of Texas: Dolph Briscoe, Mark White and Bill Clements, as head cook at the Governor's Mansion. She also worked for the former Chancellor of the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Charles LeMaistre. She and her husband Charles also worked for many years for the Kingsbury family of Dripping Springs. Later in life she married Eugene Moore, Sr. who also preceded her in death. She leaves to cherish her memories: two sons: Larry Moore (Sharnelle) of Seattle, WA. and Charles Moore, Jr. of Arlington, Texas. One granddaughter, LaTrice Wilson of Austin; three grandsons, Mark, Anthony and Charles Moore, III of California; one, great-granddaughter, LaTrion Wilson-Tasby of Austin; two brothers: Thomas Caldwell (Vivian) of Hillsboro and Charles Caldwell (Dorothy) of Federal Way, WA.; three sisters: Bettye Dixon (Earlie) of Pflugerville, Dorothy Ates of Austin and Linda Williams (Dewey) of Pflugerville; two very special nieces, "The Val Street Girls", Sheila Carr Wilson (Arthur) and Ashley Caldwell; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other family and friends.
