Eva Frances Moore Obituary

My mother, Eva Frances Moore, was born August 17,1937, in Sadieville (Hinton), KY, in the family home. Shortly thereafter, her parents, my grandparents, Sherman and Alta Moore, moved to Georgetown, KY. They nurtured her and gave her a good and loving home life with a strong foundation of faith and family.

My mother started her personal relationship with God at the age of nine years old and gave her life to Christ and was baptized at the First Baptist Church in Georgetown.

She attended Cincinnati Public Schools, where she was a member of the last graduating class in 1955 from “Old” Woodward High School, that was located at 13th and Sycamore Streets at that time.

Fast forward…I attended and graduated from the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA), which was in the same building where my mother graduated. Who knows, I might have been sitting in a room where she attended class! Okay, back to my mother’s story… She was one of 12 students recognized as a top student in the City of Cincinnati. She received a scholarship to the University of Cincinnati, where she attended and studied Business Administration.

In 1960, my mother was offered the opportunity to fill in as secretary for a Vice President at Nutone on Red Bank Road. She did so well, they offered to send her to IBM for data entry training and this was the start of her 46-year career! She worked in many roles, from entry level to leadership, until she retired in 2007.

My mother loved to read and was passionate about helping others learn how to read. She was the “Jazzercise Queen” and attended classes for over 35 years. We believe this helped her to be even stronger and to bounce back during most of her health challenges. She loved going to the movies and getting her favorite snack, “Popcorn!” Even at home that was a great comfort food for her. Also, we all know how picky she was about eating, no sauce, no gravy, Miss Plain Jane! She also loved shopping and collecting watches, the more unique the better! Mother was very fashionable and had exquisite taste. My fondest memories, as a boy, were going shopping every weekend with my mother and grandmother. I learned to love the finer things in life from them both!

Although my mother had to leave First Baptist Church in Georgetown, KY, she did not leave God or her desire to serve Him. At the age of 12, she joined Bethlehem Baptist Church, at that time it was located on Clark Street, in Cincinnati. My mother was a faithful member for over 75 years. Throughout the years she served as a member of the Young Adult Choir, Sunday School Pianist, Office Secretary; and was one of the longest serving members of the Usher Board. Each Sunday faithfully, she was “Glad to be a door keeper in the house of the Lord”, until her health declined. When the doors of the church were open, she enjoyed participating. SHE LOVED HER CHURCH!

My mother was my biggest cheerleader! She always wanted and encouraged me to explore new things; I never would have imagined I would be artistic. Whether in high school at S.C.P.A. or Indiana University, when I had a performance, I could rest assured that my mother would be front and center in the audience. And when I embarked upon my career in Europe, my mother visited me often and attended many of my performances there, as well. I have lived in Europe for over 35 years and during this time, we talked several times daily by phone and video chat; our mother and son bond was strong. She made annual trips to see me in Europe from 1990 to 2013; and only missed when my grandfather took ill. That was more than 25 trips! I know she loves me, and I will always love her. I will have more performances in the future, and when I go on stage, I will look for Mother in the audience, but will be reminded that she is in Heaven, sitting in the best seat in the house. My angel will always be watching over me.

Throughout the last five years, her everyday life changed drastically and dramatically. While I will continue to say that “she is hands down, the strongest lady I know”, she had many precious and dear individuals protecting, helping, advocating, caring for and supporting her during those changes in my stead. These people are: Paula at Buckeye Forest of Madeira; Sarah, Tiffany, Mark and Ben at Otterbein of Lebanon; Nora, Katie, Melissa and Patrick from Heartland Hospice.

And lastly, the 2 ANGELS who selflessly, devotedly, constantly and LOVINGLY at all costs, at all hours of each day and night attended to her needs, desires and wishes. My Family, My Rocks, My Sisters, Linda Evans; and MOM’s Goddaughter, Kimberly Williams. You ladies are Beautiful, Amazing and BRAVE. I LOVE and THANK YOU FROM THE DEPTHS OF MY HEART. Your sacrifice and Devotion have been nothing short of MIRACULOUS!
