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.
