We celebrate the life and memory of Mrs. Mamie S. Moore whose death occurred Monday, September 7, 2020 at her residence under the care of Hospice Savannah, Inc.
Mamie C’Nell Scott Moore was born in Register, Georgia on April 13, 1927 to the late Rev. Watkin and Viola Scott. She is preceded in death by her husband, Eddie L. Moore; eight siblings, Jerome Scott, Willie Scott, Theodore Scott, James Scott, Selphlee Brown, Melrose Hagins, Twila Orr and Wilma Wallace; and a great-grandson, Kyle Nicholas Cutter.
Mamie dedicated herself to God as a young child at First Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church. As a young adult, she became a member of St Paul Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of her brother-in-law, the late Rev. A. E, Hagins, Sr. serving for many years as church secretary, singing in the gospel choir, and working as a chaperone and mentor with the Youth Singers for Christ. In her later years, she rejoined First Tabernacle Missionary Baptist and served as a Greeter until her health was compromised.
Mamie graduated from Beach-Cuyler High School and received her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Savannah State College. She worked as an educator in the Bryan County School System for over 30 years. She was a teacher, girls’ basketball coach, and principal at George Washington Carver School (GWCS). She transferred to Richmond Hill Elementary after the closing of GWCS and continued as a fourth-grade teacher until she retired. Upon her retirement, she was a substitute teacher with Savannah-Chatham School System for several years. She was owner and operator of Moore’s Distributing House (Sunday School and church supply products) servicing Southeast Georgia. Because of her love for gardening and nature, Mamie served over four decades as a member of the Civic Garden Club and as Secretary of the State Association of Garden Clubs. She served as a Tree and Park Commissioner for the City of Savannah.
