Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. Strength and honor are her clothing; She shall rejoice in time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, And on her tongue is the law of kindness. She watches over the ways of her household, And does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her:" Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all. "Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her own works praise her in the gates. Proverbs 31:10, 25-31 Bobbi "Mama" Moore, age 78, of Wayne, June 5, 2008. Loving wife of the late Pastor J. Earl Moore.

Memorial contributions may be made to Agape Family Worship Center. Bobbi was born in Carlisle County, Kentucky in 1930. In over 60 years of marriage, she and her husband lived in Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan. After pastoring for several years in the Chicago area, they relocated to Michigan. They ministered in the Detroit Metro area with the Joy of Living Ministries, featuring daily broadcasts on local radio stations and television. In February 1978, they founded Agape Family Worship Center in Canton, Michigan. Part of their vision for the church included Agape Christian Academy, which began in 1982. Bobbi ministered not only at Agape, but traveled throughout the United States and Canada, teaching primarily on the family and home. She was gifted in practical teaching and also ministered to women's groups, stressing their roles as women, wives and mothers. Bobbi was "Mama" to many people through the years! She served as mentor and confidant to many, as well as serving on their church boards throughout the US and Canada. She was also influential in helping pioneer churches. She will remain forever in our hearts as a wife, mother, grandmother and friend. To share memories, please click on the condolence link on this page.
