Dorothy Virginia "Dot" Allen Moore

Little Rock, AR, 1941 - 2010

DOROTHY VIRGINIA "DOT" ALLEN MOORE, 69, of Little Rock, died on Aug. 19, 2010. She was born on May 23, 1941 in Vicksburg, Miss., to Ed and Ruth Allen. After growing up in Aberdeen, Miss., and graduating from Millsaps College in Jackson, Miss., she married Tom Moore and began a beautiful 45 year marriage. She taught elementary school in Jackson before she and Tom moved to Little Rock, where she was a sales representative for Innisbrook Wraps until retiring in 1995. They joined Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church in 1975, where the Fathomers Class has been a source of many lifelong friendships. Dot is survived by her husband, Tom Moore, of Little Rock; her daughter, Jennifer Moore, of Fayetteville; and her brother Ed Allen, of Longmont, Colo. She is also survived by Tom's extended family, and many nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death was her son, Russell Allen Moore; her brother, Bob Allen; and her parents. Dot enjoyed the simple pleasures in life such as taking walks, reading, playing bridge, and the company of her dogs Sarah and Mia. She will be missed for her quiet strength, her welcoming smile, and her effortless grace and elegance that was apparent the moment she stepped into a room. When asked to describe her awards and special achievements in life, her answer was "marrying the most wonderful man I could ever imagine." She is truly an inspiration to all who knew her. Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 24 at Ruebel Funeral Home. The memorial service will be at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 25 at Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy, 4301 W. Markham St No. 816, Little Rock, Ark., 72205, or to the PHUMC Foundation, 4823 Woodlawn Ave, Little Rock, Ark., 72205. Dot's online guest book can be signed at
