Bonnie Moore

— Funeral service for Bonnie Moore, 87, former Chickasha resident, will be held at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, June 15, 2013 in the Chapel of Sevier Funeral Home.

Bonnie Moore was born on July 7, 1925, to Sallie and H.H. Litton on a farm west of Chickasha as the next to youngest child in a family of nine. She died Tuesday, June 11, 2013 in Decatur, GA. She attended Southwest Elementary and what were then called Chickasha Jr. and Sr. High.  In 1945, she met Ernest Moore who owned the TV and radio shop at 515 Chickasha Ave.   After their first date she knew she was going to marry him.  She liked to joke that it took her a bit longer – but not much – to convince him of that.  They remained happily married until he preceded her in death in 1988.  They had one daughter, Susan Litton (also known as Suzie Moore) and one son, Mark Wayne Moore, who died shortly after birth.

In addition to being totally devoted to family and friends, Bonnie also loved the various jobs she held over the years.  She tells stories of working as an operator at the telephone company in the 40’s before air-conditioning when they had scheduled ‘fan breaks’ where they could go stand in front of large fans to cool off a bit.  After she married, she helped Ernest in his store for many years.  When their daughter reached high school, Bonnie decided to return to the work force to look for a ‘real job’.  She started as a receptionist at Chickasha Mobile Homes, then became a purchasing secretary for Grady Memorial Hospital and finally was asked to be the first purchasing agent for Southern Plains Medical Center (known then as “the clinic”).  Bonnie loved all of her jobs but she adored working at Southern Plains.  She took great pride in her work and always did her best at everything she tackled.
