Peggy Ruth Fox Moore, born 10-12-1938 danced into her Saviour’s Presence early Sunday morning. She was adored and honored by many.
She was the former Pastor and founder of River of Life Church in Jefferson City and was known for her tenacity, courage and servantship to her family, friends and her Lord, Jesus Christ.
She was a prayer warrior who would stop in the middle of Walmart and pray with you, if you needed her. She prayed many through their trials and had survived many herself, including breast cancer. She did not give up on a challenge, but pushed through, and encouraged those she mentored to do the same. Many were brought into God’s Kingdom because of her passion to share and live the Gospel.
Peggy loved sports, being one of the first women to play basketball in her high school. Her team won the State Championship in 1957, and they are in the Rose Team Hall of Fame. Over the years she found other loves, of line dancing and tennis. She loved to make people smile, especially her loved ones, and her smile lit up our lives as her laughter could bring the most depressed person out of their slump. We know she is enjoying her rewards in heaven, because she had a burden for souls and the Kingdom of God working tirelessly in God’s fields. She often said how she longed to hear the “sound” of God’s spirit on the earth, rustling in the mulberry bushes (2 Chronicles 14: 15), meaning that God was going ahead of us to conquer the enemy of our soul.
By now, she has met her Savior and is basking in His awesome presence. She left us a legacy and until we meet again, Pastor Peggy, we will carry our cross and continue to lead the broken to His River of Life.
She is preceded in death by her parents Leslie and Gertie Stepp Fox, sister Jean Fox McDonald, son Johnny Wayne Hunt.
She is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, Ted Moore Jr., sons Adam Gray and his wife Hannah, granddaughter Eden, and Kenneth Hunt of Dandridge; daughter Pamela McClain, brother Fred Fox, sister Rita Sisson all of Morristown, and Margie Killian of Little Rock, Arkansas; Many loving nieces, nephews and friends.
Receiving of friends will be at Dandridge Full Gospel Saturday 4-6. Life Celebration Service starts at 6, and burial Sunday at Hills Union Cemetery, Sunday, March 7, 2021, 3:00pm.
Also, in lieu of flowers, donations to the New Market Fire Department, P.O. Box 118, New Market, TN 37820 will be appreciated.
