Lovie was born on June 28, 1963 in Midland, Texas to James Booker T. Moore and Christine Nichols Moore. She was a spirited eclectic child. Her range of interest included everything from sun bathing, playing dolls and basketball. She grew up in California, and she traveled to many parts of the world helping to enhance her eclectic personality. She found and married the love of her life, Charles, Sloan in the summer of 1989. Together, they traveled the United States from California to Colorado to Texas and finally calling Florida home. Together combined, they raised 9 wonderful children. Her enormous heart and love of people helped her grow and nurture her family as well as many families she encountered in her career as a nurse’s aide. Her love expands time and space as many called her mom. Many referred to her as “Sister Lovie” from her church members. God gave her the task of loving the world like HE loved the church, and she showed it every day in every smile, every kind word, and every heartfelt prayer. She was known to pray for family and friends. She was a lover of miniature Hershey’s, a collector of small tokens of memories, and loved the Dallas Cowboys. She had worked as a nurse’s aide, EKG technician, phlebotomist, and as a caregiver. She was preceded in death by her father, grandparents, 2 sisters, Terri and Debbie Moore, and 1 brother, James Moore. She was a member of Abundant Harvest of Palm Coast, Florida and a visitor of Mount Olive Baptist Church during her stay in Andrews. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
