Oretha Maureen Moore

Graveside services for Oretha Maureen Moore were held 10 a.m., Tuesday, April 27, 2021, at Green Hill Cemetery in Davis with Pastor Roger Sims officiating.
Oretha was born Nov. 18, 1931, in Hennepin, Okla., to the late Virgil and Bertha (Lannom) McNeil. She died Saturday, April 24, 2021, in Ardmore at the age of 89. Oretha and George Edwin Moore were married on July 13, 1963. He preceded her in death on June 4, 1993.
Oretha grew up in Hennepin, graduating from Woodland High School. During the early years of her children’s lives, she was a stay-at-home mother. She later spent several years working as a beautician. In 1982, Oretha began working for the United States Postal Service as an independent mail carrier, retiring in 2017, after 35 years of service. She was an avid reader and enjoyed coloring. Oretha was a self-proclaimed meteorologist. Anytime there was a shear chance of storms, she was glued to her television watching the storm’s every move, while notifying all of her friends and family of the threat. Oretha also enjoyed going out to eat with family, especially when Mexican food was on the menu.
