Heaven gained one of the earth’s most glorious souls when Norma Helaine Clark Moore went to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on July 25, 2021. She will be remembered not only for her genuine kindness and generosity to all, but especially her ability to make each and every person feel confident, loved, and completely comforted in the presence of her beautiful sparkling turquoise eyes. She was an inspiration as a true woman of God and a tireless advocate for the many non-profits she served in.
Norma was born in Laredo to Norman “Sonny” Clark and Susan (Boyle) Clark on July 8, 1947. She was voted as Most Popular and served as C0-Head Cheerleader for the first graduating class of J.W. Nixon High School. Norma portrayed Pocahontas in the Washington Birthday celebration and Parade in 1965, and married her high school sweetheart Joe Moore in 1969, shortly after graduating from Texas Christian University. They were married for almost 50 years before Joe passed away to Heaven in 2018. In addition to being a very active member of First United Methodist Church, Norma was an incredible educator in the Allied Health Department at Laredo College and successful retailer of designer ladies clothing and fine jewelry. In her later years, Norma was proud to receive her Master’s degree from the university of St. Francis. She served in several WBCA and Society of Martha Washington capacities and was awarded the 2017 Joseph Netzer Award, 2015 President’s Merit Award, and the 2011 Matias de Llano Memorial Award. Norma was a part of the Texican CattleWomen, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Daughters of the American Revolution, Laredo Area Community Foundation, Gateway Community Health Board, Luncheon Club, and several other countless organizations that she was proud to serve in many different roles. Her service and involvement aided so many in need, encouraged countless others, and most importantly helped bring many to faith in Christ.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Moore; parents, Mr. and Mrs. Norman and Susan Clark, and her nephew Michael Clark.
Family always came first to Norma, and she was fiercely proud of each of her children and grandchildren. She also loved her siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, and dear friends without measure. Surviving Norma are loving children, Monte (Angie) Moore, William C. (Angela) Moore, Clark (Marlene) Moore, Robert (Jessica) Moore; grandchildren, Lauren, Ryan, Cait, Christen, Susan, Norman, and Charlie; sister, Carole Diaz; brother, Louis Clark, and sisters-in-law Mona M.
