Ethel Bernice Moore

Roff — Services for Ethel Bernice Moore, 78, of Roff will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. at Centennial Chapel of Harvey-Douglas Funeral Home and Crematory in Ardmore. 

Mrs. Moore died Dec. 28, 2013, at Jan Frances Care Center in Ada. She was born Sept. 1, 1935, to Joe and Elizabeth Snider in Dacono, Colo. She attended school there and graduated in 1953. 

She married Ray Moore on Sept. 11, 1954, in Denver. He preceded her in death Nov. 28, 2005. They had two children together. 

In 1963, the family moved from Denver to Harsel, Colo., where they operated the General Store and Standard Station. Soon after, they began their herd of registered Texas Longhorn cattle and established Moore’s Longhorn Ranch with cattle operations in Colorado, Kansas and Oklahoma. 

Mrs. Moore was a homemaker and helped with ranch activities including steer roping, cattle drives, shows and sales. The Moores were the founding members of many Texas Longhorn associations, including the Indian Territory Longhorn Association of Oklahoma, an affiliate of the International Texas Longhorn Association, where Mrs. Moore served as executive director for several years. 

In the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America, she assisted with the establishment of the TLBAA “Horn Showcase.”

Survivors include a son, Joe Moore and wife, Nancy, of Bucklin, Kan.; daughter, Denise Raley, of Roff; five grandchildren, Shanna Collins and husband, T. J., Wyatt Raley, Trinity Moore, Cody Moore and wife, Missy, and Laramie Moore; great-granddaughters, Jaycee Collins and Miranda Moore; and a nephew she raised as her own, Monty Dean Moore and wife, Kathy.  

Mrs. Moore was preceded in death by her husband.

Memorials may be made to either the TLBAA Foundation or the ITLA Foundation for Educational Scholarship.
