Ruth E. “Grandma Ruth” Moore, 86, of Wichita Falls, passed away on Monday, July 15, 2019 in Wichita Falls. She was born on July 19, 1932 in Ramona, OK to the late William and Bertha Thomas. On June 30, 1952 she married Hubert Moore in Wichita County. Ruth owned and operated Grandma Ruth’s Hamburger Restaurant for many years. She became known to most people as “Grandma Ruth” as a result of her business. As her memory declined, she continued to respond when addressed as such. Ruth taught Sunday school for many, many years. She loved the children she taught and they loved her in return. Because of her influence and teaching, many of these children grew up to become preachers and continue to share the gospel from the seeds she had helped to plant. Ruth was always ready to share her love for Jesus and to quote scripture. Ruth was an avid story teller and her words could paint interesting pictures. She loved to tell of her childhood on a dairy farm and how she used to ride a cow at milking times. Ruth’s pride and joy were her four boys. She loved being their mother and beamed when talking about them. As a young mother, she thought she would never be a grandmother since she only had boys. The boys got her good and blessed her with nine grandchildren. She adored them all and they were privileged to call her grandma. Ruth loved to laugh and could find humor in most everything. She not only loved God, but Ruth loved people. She loved the fellowship of her church family. She was a blessing to those who knew her and will be deeply missed, but she is dancing on streets of gold, wearing her crown. She is survived by her husband, Hubert Weldon Moore of Wichita Falls; sons, Eldon Moore and wife Nelda of League City, TX, Weldon Moore and wife Anita of Wichita Falls, Wendell Moore and wife Michelle of Wichita Falls and Joe Moore and wife Susan of Divide, CO; 8 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren; one sister, Bertha Wise of Tulsa, OK; numerous nieces and nephews; her church family and Sunday school kids. She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Bertha Thomas, 7 siblings and 1 grandson.

Grandma Ruth always took great care of the staff at 92.9 KNiN and 990 KWFT when we would drop-by for lunch. She was a very sweet lady that will always remain near and dear to our hearts. The Great City in the Sky just gained an Angel that will always keep the Heavenly Hosts well-fed and entertained. Rest in peace, Grandma Ruth...

I remember her when I was a child going to the church in Wichita Falls, Texas. Her boys, the Hughes boys, my brothers and I used to jag out a lot, as we were all around the same age. I remember the hamburgers and fries she made at “Wendy’s” (the name before Grandma Ruth’s) down from the church on Burnett St. Whenever I visit Wichita Falls I always wish all of the places were still there. Even the church is gone, and in it’s place is a parking lot.

Aunt Ruth would make us (my brother cousins grandma and papa and mom) her awesome burgers and shakes and let us play the arcade games as much as we wanted. Normally her restaurant was already closed but she would open it for us.

I'm really glad I got to see her 1 more time about a year ago.

She will be missed bunches !!

A beautiful lady! Awsome teacher and storyteller! She also taught us many songs as we traveled on church outings! Love you..Ruth!❤

From my youngest memories every time mom and Aunt Ruth got together, I would be handed over to Aunt Ruth. This may be because the boys would all take off for parts unknown. Aunt Ruth would talk to me about Jesus along with teaching me songs. A beautiful lady that we will all miss. The picture is of Aunt Ruth (oldest) and mom (youngest) when they were little.
