Katie Almeda Moore was born on February 23, 1923 in Caney, OK the daughter of Wofford and Lucille (Mauck) Jones. She attended school at Caney, completing the 8th grade. She met and married the love of her life, Wilburn Moore, on May 2nd, 1942 in Caney, OK. This union was blessed with fifty years and three children, one son and two daughters. Katie was a woman of many talents. She was gifted with a needle and did beautiful crocheting, quilting, and a multitude of arts and crafts. She had an eye for photography and was interested in shooting wildlife, mainly flowers and birds. Katie never stood still a minute and could be found helping with livestock, working in the fields or garden, and taking care of her favorite people, her family. Whenever possible, she loved to slip away to her favorite fishing hole for an afternoon of fun in the sun. She adored her children and grandchildren, sharing an afternoon laughing and joking. She had a warm smile and a large, giving heart, a gift she shared when chatting with her friends and neighbors. Wilburn passed from this life in 1992, and Katie continued her life in Welling with Carol until her health began to fail her. A Baptist by faith, Katie was called home from her labors on March 5th, 2012 at Tahlequah, OK. She was 89 years old. Katie will be greatly missed by her many family and friends
