TO EXPRESS PROFOUND SORROW UPON THE PASSING OF LORRAINE LINSENBARDT MOORE AND TO EXTEND THE DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO HER FAMILY AND MANY FRIENDS.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina Senate were deeply saddened to learn of the death of Lorraine Linsenbardt Moore at the venerable age of eighty-nine on Thursday, April 1, 2021; and
Whereas, a native of Lohman, Missouri, Lorraine was born on February 2, 1932 to Theodore Linsenbardt and Freada Koestner Linsenbardt. She graduated from Russellville High School in Russellville, Missouri, where she was a cheerleader and soloist for the Glee Club; and
Whereas, a lifelong singer, Lorraine began singing in the St. Paul's Lutheran Church Choir of Lohman at an early age. She studied voice under Bertha Jaeger in Jefferson City, Missouri and Katherine P. Durett at St. Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri; and
Whereas, after marrying her husband Eugene T. Moore, Jr., she moved to Lake City, where she lived the rest of her life; and
Whereas, an active member of the Lake City community, Lorraine worked in the tobacco market and served as owner and hostess of the Red Carpet Welcome Service. Lorraine was a member of the Junior Sorosis Club, Friends of the Lake City Library, Lake City United Methodist Women, and Circle #5. She was a dedicated volunteer with the Lake City Community Hospital, Meals on Wheels, Moore Farms Botanical Garden, and ArtFields. In fact, she delivered Meals on Wheels to needy members of the Lake City community until just a few weeks before she passed away; and
Whereas, a devout Christian, Lorraine was a member of the Lake City United Methodist Church, where she sang in the choir and served as office administrator for twenty-five years, on the Administrative Board, and on the Finance Committee; and
Whereas, Lorraine was married to Eugene T. Moore, Jr. for fifty-five years; and
Whereas, she was predeceased by her parents; her husband; a brother, Armand Linsenbardt; sisters, Marvelia Mueller (Leslie) and Shirley Renken; and a son-in-law, Richard Rainwater; and
Whereas, she leaves to cherish her memory two daughters, Darla D. Moore and Lisa G. Moore; grandsons, David Allen Golonka and William Joseph Golonka; brothers-in-law, Donald Moore (Peggy) and Tim Renken; and many special nieces and nephews; and
Whereas, a beautiful and graceful woman, Lorraine instilled her generous spirit and care for her community into her family. Her daughter, Darla D. Moore of Lake City, has become one of our state's most generous philanthropists and the benefactor of so many worthy causes in her community and around our state. The Lake City community and the State of South Carolina will miss Lorraine Moore, but her generous spirit lives on through the service of her children and grandchildren to their community, state, and nation. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate:
That the members of the South Carolina Senate, by this resolution, express profound sorrow upon the passing of Lorraine Linsenbardt Moore and extend deepest sympathy to her family and many friends.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to the family of Lorraine Linsenbardt Moore.
