Mary Alice Whittington

April 28, 1928 ~ April 26, 2018 (age 89)

Mary Alice Moore Whittington, 89, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, April 26, 2018.


Mary was born on April 28, 1928 in Granbury, Texas. She was the daughter of William Joseph and Zula Bertha Reed, who preceded her in death.  She was the youngest of 11 children.


Mary was a retired Registered Nurse of 45 years from Harris Hospital in Fort Worth, TX.   Upon her retirement, Mary became a docent for the Fort Worth Zoo and later at the Waco Zoo.  She enjoyed working children and she used a puppet named Muggsy to teach them about our natural world.  Both Mary and Muggsy were huge Texas Rangers fans.     Mary was also a Lay Leader for her beloved Covington United Methodist Church.


Mary is survived by her husband John Whittington, her children, Kirby Lee Moore and his wife Gidget, Scott Moore and his wife Sara Scott, and Keith Moore and his wife Kasia; 5 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren; her mother-in-law Millie Whittington; her father-in-law Vernon Whittington and his wife Pam; and numerous nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.


The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Covington United Methodist Church in Covington, TX.
