Isabella Moore

August 10, 1938 – December 26, 2020

“The gates have swung open and Isabella walked into Heaven on December 26, 2020!

Isabella was born on August 10, 1938, to Walter & Ruby Brown in Paincourtville, LA. She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 11.  She graduated from W. H. Reed High School and attended Riverside City College in CA, ENMU-Portales, and Houston Community College furthering her degree and studies in Early Childhood Education.

Isabella married Joseph A. Moore, Jr. November 4, 1956. She taught elementary education, and raised 3 children while honorably serving alongside Joseph in the U.S. Air Force for 23 years.  In 1981, Isabella & Joseph divorced, and she moved with her 2 daughters to Houston.  In 1983, she became a member of Brentwood Baptist church and continued to serve with their ministries.  Isabella retired in retail services working for Foley’s Stores Credit department and later as a Walmart Customer Host. In 2001, Isabella moved to San Antonio to be near her daughter Kristy.  While in San Antonio, she became active with Northwest Park Baptist Church.  She lived in San Antonio for 6 years after the untimely passing of Kristy in 2003.  In 2009, she decided to move back to Houston and rejoined Brentwood Baptist Church.  Isabella also stayed active participating with her Floral Gardens Community: holding weekly Bible studies and coordinating events and holiday parties.
