Agnes Moore Childers

Agnes Moore Childers

Agnes Moore Childers went to her Heavenly home on her 92nd birthday, December 6, 2020.

She was born on December 6, 1928 to the late Alvis Edward Moore and Flossie Hendren Moore.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Franklin Alexander (Alex) Childers; brother, Robert Moore; and infant brother, Conrad Moore.

Survivors include two daughters, Elaine Childers George and husband Rev. Neil, and Linda Childers Chapman and husband Rev. Dennis, all of Taylorsville; five grandchildren, Kevin George and wife Leslie, and Monica Hamby and husband Ricky, all of Taylorsville, Kelly Milward and husband Mike of Charleston, South Carolina, Mathieu Chapman and wife Sallie of Gastonia, and Morgan Chapman and wife Beth of Washington, DC; and eight great-grandchildren, Kamden, Keaton, Myka, Alex, Davis, Lillian, Lucas, and Bennett.

She was a faithful member of Little River Baptist Church and retired from Broyhill Furniture. Agnes enjoyed reading her Bible and working “Word Search” books. She loved her Lord, and all her family. Agnes lived the Christian life before everyone she came in contact with and was a great influence to many people.

She loved to cook for her family, for friends, and for Preachers. Everyone enjoyed her coconut cake. She loved sending cards and making phone calls to check up on family and friends. Agnes was a friendly lady, loved talking to everyone, and never met a stranger. She will certainly be missed by her family and many friends.

    To the family of Mrs. Agnes. I am very sorry for your loss. When I was very young, I visited Mr. Alex and Mrs. Agnes with my Uncle Grant and Aunt Amy Moore. The Moore family reunion was also a part of my early child hood with my aunt and uncle. Enjoyed being there so much. I felt like being a part of the family A warm and good feeling.

    Again I will never forget those memories of a very special family.
