Barbara Gail Moore

August 20, 1944 – December 15, 2019

Barbara Gail Moore, 75, of College Station, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 15, 2019. She was born on August 20, 1944 to parents, Richard Travis and Rebecca Pauline Davenport in Houston, TX.  At a young age she joined the service, becoming an Airman Second Class in the US Air Force at the Amarillo Air Force Base.  She served as an administrative specialist with a unit which supports the Air Training Command Mission.  Eventually she started working for the Wal-Mart Corporation in Fort Worth, then to New Mexico and then moving to Houston, where she would meet the love of her life, Ray Moore.  She then decided to continue her education so she returned to college to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Houston.  Barbara later worked as an eligibility specialist for the Department of Human Services until retiring.  After retiring from DHS, she pursued a job as a substitute teacher in the Galena Park ISD in Houston, Texas.  She soon found that quite a few of her nieces and nephews would be her students.  Barbara and Ray eventually moved to College Station.  She continued her substitute teaching in the College Station ISD and Bryan ISD.  She found a new interest in genealogy and enjoyed discovering new things about her family history.  Barbara enjoyed crafting and could often be found sewing and crocheting beautiful pieces that she shared with her family and friends. She was an animal lover and cared deeply for her canine companions, Jackie and Peanut.  Barbara was not only a hard worker; she was a dedicated servant to the Lord.  Barbara was a woman of great faith and loved to share her talent of singing by singing praises to the Lord in the churches she attended. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  Barbara will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her son, Michael Shane Westbrook; brother, David Aaron Davenport; brothers-in-law, Joe Eddy Spellman, Verner Patrick Corkran, and Henry Bolivar White;

Barbara is survived by her husband, Luther Ray Moore; children, Aaron Ray Moore and Angela Reyna; granddaughter, Maya Reyna; siblings, Margaret Willene Spellman, Rebecca Dale Corkran, Diana Lynn White, Richard Earl Davenport (Tanya), Karen “Niecie” Juanice Valdez (Daniel), Leslie James Davenport (Sharon); sister-in-law, Nona Lyn Davenport; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of extended loving family members and friends.

A Memorial Service will be held Thursday, December 19, 2019, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 2500 Barak Ln.  Bryan, Texas 77802.  Visitation with the family will be from 6:00 to 6:45 pm Thursday followed by the celebration of her life and home-going at 7:00 pm at the church.

  1. I know it’s been such a long hard road for you. You were so strong and so brave through all of this. We miss you dearly and would have done anything to make you stay. We know that you were so tired and had to go but it still doesn’t ease our pain. Praise God that you are totally pain free and rejoicing with the angels in Heaven. Love you dearly and will see you there. I love you Niecie

  2. Ray – I’m so sorry to see this Ms Barbara was a sweet heart and your love for each other was beyond years. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her. She’s in a better place without any pain. Take peace knowing she is resting and gave it her best. I know Jackie and peanut as well as you will miss her greatly. God bless – nurse Cat

  3. Dear Family, so sorry that we won’t be able to attend either of the services. I pray that your hearts will be comforted by our dear Jesus in the loss of our Barbara. I will surely be listening to her CD. I’m so glad she left it for me when you all came to Mother’s service. God bless all of you is my prayer. Pat

  4. Barbara was one of my favorite cousins. I admired the fact she earned a college degree after many years in the work force. She was a fun person, hard worker, and loved the Lord. We will all miss her until we meet again in Heaven. I am so grateful she is no longer in pain but is rejoicing with our Heavenly Father and reuniting with loved ones who have gone on before her.
    Love you, Barbara.
