Of special interest to those who knew MG Harley Moore:
Catherine M "K T" Moore, age 91, entered into rest 26 January 2010 at the Kentwood Nursing Facility, Augusta, GA. Mrs Moore was the wife of the late MG Harley L Moore Jr, U S Army (retired). She was born in 1918 in Cedar Rapids, IA to the late John J Timm and Elsie Bertha Timm. She has been an Augusta resident since 1971. K T as she was affectionately called by her husband, graduated from Coe College, Cedar Rapids, IA in 1939. She was the epitome of an Army wife which was a great help to her husband's career and was very involved in the Officers' Wives' Club and many related activities at every duty station, which included Yokohama, Japan, and Heidelberg, Germany as well as many places in the US. When her husband was first stationed at Ft Gordon GA in 1952, they became members of Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. Mrs Moore was a member of the Augusta Choral Society, Augusta Chamber Singers, and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church Choir. She was an accomplished singer, studied voice, and in Japan the art of flower arranging. Mrs Moore was a Volunteer with Hospice at St Joseph Hospital and the Red Cross and very generous with her time, as a regular visitor to church shut-ins. She is survived by her brother Edwin J Timm and wife Audrey and preceded in death by her sister Barbara Lou Timm. Family members include her sons: Harley Lester Moore III and wife Myrna of San Francisco, CA, Michael John Moore and wife Barbara of Atlanta; and, daughters: Barbara Bowers Wilson and husband Dennis of Augusta, Shirlee Kathryn Hecht and husband Patrick of Raleigh, NC; ten grandchildren; five great grandchildren. The family would like to express thanks to the Kentwood Nursing Facility Staff for the tender loving care shown to their Mother. Funeral services will be held Saturday 30 January 2010 at 11:00 A M at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church with Pastor Roger Schwartz and Pastor Karl Dunker officiating. Interment will follow at Westover Memorial Park. Memorials may be made to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church Memorial Fund, 402 Aumond Road, Augusta, GA 30909. The family will receive friends Friday 29 January 2010 from 6:00 to 8:00 P M at Thomas Poteet & Son Funeral Directors, 214 Davis Rd, Augusta, GA 30907 (706) 364-8484. Please sign the guestbook at
