Elizabeth “Bay” Moore

May 17, 2008 – May 18, 2023

Elizabeth “Bay” Anne Moore of Ringgold, LA, stepped into the presence of her Savior on May 18th, 2023. Bay passed away at her family farm one day after her fifteenth birthday.

Bay is survived by her loving parents, Rob and Jessica Moore of Ringgold, LA.; her brothers and sister, Lewis, Sam, Art, Henry, Sully, and Betty, all of Ringgold, LA; her grandparents, Jon and Rhonda Haymon of Ruston, LA., and Don and Bobbie Moore of Ringgold, LA; and great-grandparents, J. L. Johnson of Pitkin, LA and Betty Moore of Ringgold, LA.

As a baby, her brother Lewis would try to say her name, but all he could say was “Bay.” From then on, Elizabeth was affectionately known as Bay.

Bay loved everything outdoors and everything animals. She loved riding horses, caring for her dog, Aster and her family’s many farm animals. Bay loved babies, and was a fantastic babysitter for several families in her church. Bay was like a second mother to her younger siblings, particularly her little sister Betty. She also loved learning to play the flute. 

Bay was active in her homeschool co-op, and was a member of Kingsway Baptist Church where she participated in the church’s youth group. Bay frequently volunteered at Southland Christian Camp where she served by working in the kitchen, waitressing, or babysitting for staff families. In addition to these acts of service, Bay recently achieved the rank of Junior Firefighter in the Bienville Fire Districts 4 & 5. 

To know Bay was to absolutely love her. She will be greatly missed until we meet again!

Visitation will be held in the gymnasium at Southland Christian Camp, 3555 Highway 371 Ringgold, LA on Wednesday, May 24th from 12:00-2:00 pm. A Celebration of Life Service will begin at 2:00 pm in the same location, with internment to follow at Springhill Cemetery, 275 Springhill Church Road, Ringgold, LA under the direction of Rockett Funeral Home, Ringgold, LA.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be given in honor of Bay to Southland Christian Camp. (Address above).
