Georgia Anna Moore-Bailey beloved mother, grandmother, and great- grandmother was born on February 1, 1920 in Curryville, Missouri. She passed away on March 28, 2009 in San Antonio, Texas at the age of 89 years. The funeral service will be held at Bulverde Baptist Church with Reverend Richard Loser officiating on April 1, 2009. She will be laid to rest in Curryville, MO on April 3, 2009.

She married James Royce Moore on April 16, 1938. They enjoyed life on the farm. They took pride in their hard work, as they reaped the rewards of a productive farm, enjoying many friends throughout the years. They had two sons, Billy Wayne and Roger Lee. She was preceded in death by her son, Roger, in October of 1954 and her husband, James Royce Moore, on July 12, 1974. She was also preceded in death by her brother, James Ross Burns, and infant granddaughter, Wendy Lynn Moore.

She married Ernest “Pete” Bailey on October 23, 1981. They enjoyed traveling, going to dances and playing cards with friends. She had four step-granddaughters and numerous great step-grandchildren. Pete preceded her in death on September 24, 1988.

She is survived by her son Billy Moore and wife Darnell of Spring Branch, three grandsons Russell Moore and wife Cindy of Marion, Brad Moore and wife Jessica of Bulverde and Kolbe Moore of Spring Branch, two great-granddaughters Maddie and Grace Moore.

She retired from the Bobbi Brooks Garment Factory in Vandalia, MO after many years of work. She was proud to be from Missouri but equally as happy to be a “transplanted” Texan. She spent many years in Texas when Royce was working on construction sites. She moved back to Missouri from 1967 to 1992. The Texas 281 RV Park became her home in October 1992. She was a member of Bulverde Baptist Church, the Bulverde Senior Center and the Widowed Persons Support Group.

She was proud of her grandsons and was here to be a part of their school activities and witnessing their graduations from Smithson Valley High School. She later traveled to College Station for Russell and Brad’s graduations from Texas A&M. She enjoyed selling pecans with Kolbe at the 281 RV Park for several years.

Her two great-granddaughters were a great joy! She couldn’t wait for them to come and play games with her.

She loved traveling, walking, dancing, shopping and playing cards and dominoes. She loved spending time with family and friends. Her address book is full of names of people from all over the United States. She continued to communicate with most of them.

She loved family functions large and small. She will be missed!
