They Named Her “Zandria”
Haughton, Louisiana is a small community just on the outskirts of Bossier City, Louisiana. In this small community. One would never think anything exciting happened. But, something exciting did happen. On Monday, August 25, 1952, the home of Bradford and Dorothy Rollins was filled with wonder and excitement. On this day as much of the attention was directed on Bossier City or the ever-growing Shreveport nearby, Bradford and Dorothy Rollins’ excitement made whatever was occurring nearby dull in comparison. A beautiful baby girl was born to this young couple. They named her Zandria Faye. On July 20, in her home, in Bastrop, Louisiana, Zandria quietly stepped from this world to her brand new home.
Zandria was also known as “Zan,” by some and “Sunny” by others. Zandria graduated from Haughton High School, enrolled in Louisiana Tech University, and received an Associate Degree. When she was only eighteen, while still at Louisiana Tech, Zandria met a handsome young man. A whirlwind courtship ensued, and they were wed. Her union to Walter Moore, Sr. would span over fifty years.
Walter and Zandria moved to another small community, opened a childcare center and Walter began teaching History. Both were molding and shaping young lives. For over twenty-plus years they played an important part in the lives of the children in Bastrop. Even though her childcare center was their primary way of using their influence to touch lives, she also worked as a Police Radio Dispatcher for the Bastrop Police Department. She was also a civic-minded lady, serving on various boards in the community. Walter’s career as an educator would span forty plus years.
Although they touched many young lives, Walter and Zandria were blessed with three children of their own, Jarvis, Walter, Jr., and their baby, Geshala.
Missing her guidance, her loving heart, her smile, and her patient but firm spirit are: her devoted husband, Walter Moore, Sr., her three grateful children: Jarvis Moore (Bartell), Walter Moore, Jr., and GeShala Moore Bennett (LaDexter)). Four grandchildren that she adored: Miguel Brooks, Miriam Brooks, Landen Bennett and Kateem Edmonds and one great-grandchild Kateem Edmonds Jr. and the many many friends and loved ones who were touched by this quiet, serene child of Bradford and Dorothy. This child they named ZANDRIA.
