Ann Tawzer Moye, 90, of Corsicana, Texas was welcomed into the arms of her Lord and Savior on Tuesday surrounded by her loving family. Ann was born to Minnie and Leon Davis on November 29, 1931, in Harrisburg, Illinois. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband, Harold Moye of fifty-seven years, son, John J. Moye, brother, Charles Davis, and great granddaughter, Kaylin Escoto-Reyna. Ann faithfully served alongside her husband, Harold, as they ministered in churches in Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, and Hawaii under the Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Together they also served as staff members at Buckner Baptist Children’s Home in Dallas, Texas for thirteen years, as well as the Masonic Home for Children in Alexandria, Louisiana for seventeen years. Ann was a gifted musician and artist. She began playing the piano around age eleven and became her church pianist by the age of fourteen even though she only knew three church songs. The church said, “That’s fine, we’ll just sing them until you know more.” She was a seamstress for the Dallas Opera and a founding member of the Star Harbor Watercolor Society with her artwork being displayed from coast to coast. She recently became a published author, writing a memoir of her life that will be cherished by her family for generations to come. Well Bless My Soul is available for purchase on Amazon.
