Lillian Moore

Lillian Moore

Lillian Moore, 84, of Jena, was called Home to her Savior on Friday, November 13, 2020.

She was born November 8, 1936 in Monroe to the union of Mose Morace and Lonie (Ebey) Morace.

Lillian was a beloved mother, grandmother, friend, and Christian role model to many.

Throughout her life she was presented with many trials and tribulations. The trying times sculpted Lillian into the strong, caring, and witty woman that she was. She was always willing to open her doors to her family, even if that meant feeding all fifty of them at one time.

On “Jackson Hill”, Lillian was known as the fried chicken queen. Time spent with family was what Lillian enjoyed most. It was always a time of smiles, laughter, and her bluntly sharing what was on her mind. Good or Bad.

In the end, she would always fight tooth and nail for her family, whether they were right or wrong. However, in her eyes her family was always right. She will be remembered and loved for an eternity. Her unforgettable legacy, love and grace will be passed down through many generations to come.

Private family services were held at 12-noon on Sunday, November 15, at Cornerstone Apostolic Church in Aimoch with the Revs. Dan McClure and Jeremy Howington officiating.

Graveside services followed at Mt. Zion Cemetery under direction of Kinner and Stevens Funeral Home of Jena.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, Mose Morace, Jr. and Wallace Morace; six sisters, Bertie Jones, Dorothy Kelly, Mary Craig, Dora Parker, Delcie Harrigill, and Evelyn Morace; and husbands, Oliver Ray Jackson, and Forrest Moore.

She was survived by her daughters, Phyllis Bryan (Darrell) of Aimwell, Sheri Paulk (Billy) of Aimwell, Amy Pardue (JimBo) of Nickle, Melinda Butts (Glenn) of Sandy Lake, and Janelle Moore of Monroe; two sons, Larkin Jackson (Vickey) of Aimwell, and Jonathan Jackson of Alexandria; one sister Louise Smith of Vidalia; and a whole slew of grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchildren.
