Dolores C. Moore (Ison)

August 23, 1932 — November 4, 2022

On November 4, 2022, Dolores Ison Moore, 90, milked the last cow, shut down the lights in the dairy, slipped her earthly bindings and made the short walk to her Heavenly home, prepared by her Lord and Savior.
At Heaven’s Gate, Dolores will be reunited with her beloved husband and soulmate James Taylor Moore for their eternities. James had gone ahead in 1997. She rejoins and rebuilds her family circle at the Throne with her parents Charlie and Janie Ison and siblings Norma, Carolyn, and Kelly.
Dolores’s life on earth was bound by family and farm. She and James are blessed with two children, daughter Jamie Deresa Moore Hall and son Charles William Moore (Jan Quillin). She is additionally privileged with four grandchildren, Lynlee Hall Grubb and Wesley Hall and Rodney and John Moore. Her great grandchildren, nieces and nephews complete her family legacy.
Being married to and partnered with a farmer, Dolores excelled at making do on thin margins. She is masterful at sewing, growing, and preserving. She is renowned for her pie-making. With a basic cream pie recipe, Dolores could make a different pie every day for days on end. The fruits of her kitchen were anticipated and loved by all who know her.
From the day of her marriage to James, farming was her future, near and long term. She knew proper crop rotation, fertilizer application rates and harvest estimates. Through it all were the cows and the dairy. Dolores milked twice a day, every day, of her adult life. Days off and vacations are luxuries seldom available to this life. She knew this but chose the life without hesitation. Dolores loved James Moore. Dolores is now leaving for that eternal, well deserved and hard-earned vacation in Paradise. No more worries about too little rain or too much hail. No more endless canning quarts of corn, beans, and tomatoes. No more making pickles. No more doctoring cow, calves, and kids at all hours of the day and night.
Now this sweet way-worn traveler will change her tattered and dusty earthly garments and be carried on Angel’s pinions to be delivered Home. There Doty will be wrapped in grand quilts made by God’s own hand as her eternal life commences. Surrounded by love and beauty, her reward is at hand.

The family will receive friends from 5-6 p.m., Monday, November 7, 2022, at the Gate City Funeral Home. Services will be conducted at 6:00 p.m., in the Gene Falin Memorial Chapel with Rev . Layton Bentley. Dale Jett and Oscar Harris will provide the music.
Graveside services will be conducted at 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, November 8, 2022, at the Mountain View Cemetery, Bristol, VA. Rodney Moore, John Moore, Bill Kaylor, Sherman Pippin, Joey Grubb, and Taylor Moore will serve as pallbearers. Bryan Taylor and Pamela Millard Moore will serve as honorary pallbearers.
Family and friends are asked to meet at Mountain View Cemetery for the graveside service.
The family wishes to thank the staff of Francis Marion Manor, for their exemplary care of Mom, and to Barbara, and Kelsey for their special friendship.
Gate City Funeral Home is honored and touched to serve the Moore Family and their own in preparing Dolores for the journey.
……and somebody else can milk them cows.
