Roxie Moore was raised in Van Buren,
Ark. and married Warren D. Moore on
Aug. 14, 1943, in Douglas, Ariz. Warren,
Roxie and their kids moved to Poteau in
1963 from Stillwater, and joined the First
United Methodist Church at that time.
Roxie and Warren were expert bridge
players and were fortunate enough to find
kindred spirits in the life-long friends they
made in Poteau.
Roxie’s greatest joy was her family. She found a true
partner in Warren and they were blessed to have 65 years
together. Her children, grandchildren, and most recently
her great-grandchildren were the light of her life.
She was preceded in death by her husband, parents,
three sisters, Naomi Rapier, Geneve Daugherty, and Ola
Mae Cameron; and two brothers, Ernest and Joe Burgess.
She is survived by two sons, Ken Moore and his wife
Mary Alice of Burton, Mich., and Dr. Tim Moore and his
wife Kathy, of Stroud; and a daughter, Sheryl Semore and
her husband Lee, of Norman.; two sisters, Peggy Baber
and her husband James of Bella Vista, Ark., and Robbie
Toothaker and her husband, Jack of Van Buren; 10 grandchildren
and 13 great-grandchildren, a host of nieces,
nephews, and friends.
