Beatrice E. Moore, 90, of Loudon Ridge, fell asleep in the Lord on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at her home surrounded by her family.

“Bea” was born in Somerville, MA on Oct. 6, 1928, to George E. and Christina (MacKinnon) Turner. At a young age her family moved to Stoneham, MA. She graduated from New England School of Theology. She came to the “Ridge” to teach Vacation Bible School at the Loudon Advent Christian Church where she met and married her beloved husband, Wendell A. Moore, in 1953. Her passion was her Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, her family, her church family and friends, and cats. She was active in her local church as a deaconess, teaching Sunday School, VBS, and Bible studies while raising her family and assisting on the farm. She was interested in foreign missions and served the Advent Christian denomination as President of the Women’s Home and Foreign Missions Society (WHFMS).

Bea was also a member of the Concord Christian Women’s Club, part of the Stonecroft Ministries. Bea was active in the Loudon Elementary School PTA and served as its president. In 2009, she was honored as the Loudon Citizen of the Year.

Bea was always kind to me and my children after my divorce. She even included my second husband as a member of her extended family. Didn't see her much over the years but I have always loved her.

My memory is one of gratitude. While attending the advent Christian church at the time of my youth she was always a wonderful mentor and the epiphany of kindness and generosity. She truly impacted my life then and still with the many lessons she taught me of love and kindness. My sincerest sympathies to all her family. What a great loss she will be and how lucky you were to have her for 90 years

I was able to be with Aunt Bea for about a week in Pleasentveiw Rehab. I stopped by her room after all the meals. The last 4 days we ate at least supper and sometimes all 3 meals together in the dining room. What a blessing to spend that time with her. We always prayed together at least once a day.
It was really a special time. Next time I see her will be in heaven.Praise the Lord

To all of the Moore family; I am so deeply sorry to hear of Bea's passing. Please know that my thoughts & prayers are with you during this time. I will always remember Bea as such a kind & loving person. She was a real sweetheart. I feel blessed that I was able to share at least one corner of her life. She had a great gift of faith & always had a kind word or deed for someone in need. Bea will be truly missed by all.

I will always remember her care and comfort when I visited the farm while in college. She was like a mother to me when my own mother was so far away. Memories of her will always be with me.
