His parents were George & Della Moore and he had sisters Ruby Griffin and Mary Alice Tarrant. They lived on the Moore's farm outside of Ranger. Mary Tarrant SISTER: MARY ALICE MOORE TARRANT, 87, a retired Dillard's designer dress sales and model, died Aug. 22, 2005, in Fort Worth, TX, with burial in Colony Cemetery near Ranger, TX. Mary Tarrant was born Jan. 11, 1918, in Ranger. Her childhood was spent in Ranger, working on the family farm. Known as Mamie, she married L.D. Tarrant in March of 1943, and moved to Fort Worth. She worked at the Convair bomber plant during World War II. While raising five children, she was employed by Dillard's Department Store in Fort Worth in designer dress sales, and modeled for several years before retiring to the family farm in Ranger. She was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, L.D., who died in 1999; her parents, George & Della Moore; sister, Ruby Griffin; and brother, George Wesley Moore Jr. (RHS-1944). A very spiritual woman, she loved living in the country, where her passions included family and friends, gospel music, gardening, nature, reading and sewing, all with her most trusted friend and protector, Troubles the dog. The farm was her Tara, and she said she would only trade it for a mansion in the sky. During the last few years she enjoyed the company of her special friends at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop in the Fort Worth Stockyards, where her memory and apple cake will be dearly remembered. A special thanks to Ron Peterson of the Country Chapel gospel radio show and Morgan Choat of the Music in the Morgan Manner radio show. A special recognition to Ellis County Bluegrass for singing the tribute at her service.
