Gladys Lee (Holloway) Moore

August 1, 1949 ~ June 25, 2019 (age 69)


August 1, 1949 Gladys entered into this world. 

(Born to Pauline and Alton Holloway)

The youngest of six. The last born, the baby girl.


She had a brother whom she loved dearly

His name was James (Jimmy) Best.

He was the first born, the eldest

So he stood out amongst all of the rest.


From then on, there were only sisters 

Four born before her to be exact. (Mary, Betty Jean, Johnnie Mae) But the one who was just one year older (Jewel) truly made the difference, for she had the strongest impact. 


The closeness and the bond they had together

I don't think another could compare.

The connection! The sisterly love! 

The two of them together share. 


Gladys was born in Kinston, North Carolina

And upon graduating from Woodington High School, she decided to begin a new life. 

She moved up north to Connecticut

Where she found work at Yale New Haven Hospital

She became a mother, as well as a wife. 


She gave birth to three beautiful babies

Two boys (Elliot and Eric) and one girl. (Yolanda)

And although she loved her children dearly

There was someone Most important who would come into her world. 


Her God Jehovah!!!

Her commitment was strong. 

She dedicated her life through baptism in 1973 and remained faithful and true all her years long. 


Thank you for your guidance

For your patience in teaching what you knew. 

Thank you for instilling knowledge in us

In hopes that we will make the truth our own and continue to pursue. 

Thank you for everything that you did and all that you continue to do.


Now you are resting peacefully

In the flesh, no longer are you here. 

But you will remain forever

In the hearts of all who love you and care. 

And to conclude

This Bible scripture, I would like to share:



And He will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. 


                 WE LOVE AND MISS YOU

                   EACH AND EVERY DAY


                          LOVE ALWAYS, 


                         Your Children
