Rev. Robert Gaines, Pastor
"Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all. Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates." Proverbs 31:10-31
“Memories of Maggie”
April 23th was the 113th day of 1932, a leap year. Just an ordinary day to some in the small hamlet of Jones, Louisiana. But on this crisp spring day, Coleman and Alberta Jean Cunningham Robinson were blessed with a beautiful baby girl. To this baby girl was given the name, Maggie. On December 12, 2017, at LeGrand Healthcare Rehabilitation Center, Maggie quietly stepped from mortality to immortality, stood boldly before the throne of God, and joined her loved ones, who had gone on before. Preceding her in death were her parents, her husband, Frank Moore, Sr. a daughter, Brenda Moore, three sisters, Furtis Conley, Tisha Johnson, and Ruby Taylor Keys; and four brothers, Lee Edward, Limmie, J. B., and Roschell Robinson.
When she was only fourteen, Maggie confessed her faith in Jesus Christ, was baptized and became a member of the Little Zion A.M.E. Church. She later joined the St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church where she remained a faithful member. Her greatest joys in life were going to church and spending quality time with her grands and great grands.
On January 6, 1949, Maggie was united in holy wedlock to the late Frank Moore, Sr.
She leaves to celebrate the richness of her life, cherish her memories of love, and her kind and loving ways: two sons, Frank Moore, Jr. (Billie), Lynwood, CA, and Michael Moore (Tara), Seattle, WA; two daughters, Alice Quire of Evanston, IL, and Connie Loche (Clifford), Collinston, LA, six grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren, one brother, Luther Robinson (Aflean) Bastrop, LA, one sister, Essie White, Madison, WI, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends

To My Family
I stopped by just for a little while, Not counting the minutes nor the hours. Just to enjoy my moments with you. Because things in life had become new. I remembered the times we laughed and played. Not knowing it would end this way. My time came sooner than we thought. I had to cash in my experience life had brought. What I say may bring some ease. I’m making room for you not to grieve. Remember the good and not the bad. The love and joy – not the sad. You know life is just a role we play. The curtains must close – to let God have his way. However, we accept the performance at hand . Remember, God wrote the lines and made the plans. We all seem to think that death’s the end. It’s not, that’s when it all begins. So, don’t you weep, don’t you mourn. Just take heed to what I say. Live and learn that you must pray for the golden ray. Of everyone joining together on the Holy Day. We will meet with jumps and shouts . Then we’ll all know what it’s all about. Dry the tears in your heart. Put on a smile – Remember I did stop by, Just for a little while
Love Forever – Your Madea, Mama Maggie, Sister, Aunt, Niece, Cousin
