Helen Maxine Moore, age 68, of Zafra, Oklahoma passed away Sunday, May 16, 2021 at home. Helen was born on December 1, 1952 in Mena, Arkansas to Bennett Joseph Anderson and Beryl Foley Anderson.

Maxine was a very headstrong woman; it was going to be her way or the highway. She never gave up that fighting spirit. She was always bragging on her children and her grandchildren. Maxine was immensely proud of her grandchildren always talking about how smart and talented they are. She was always crocheting blankets for each new baby and was always happy to do it. Maxine loved being a nurse and working with the elderly. She was loved and will be missed more than words can say.

She is survived by son, Keith Ray and wife Deborah of Donaldson, Arkansas; daughters, Misty Dawn Dearing and husband Matt of Merkel, Texas, and Kristy Dehart and fiancé Chris Winkles of Abilene, Texas; grandchildren, Conner Gorby and wife Madison, Shyann Gorby, Gracie Dearing, Nathaniel Paschall, Zoe Paschall, Kaden Winkles, Jacob Ray, and Jakob Dearing; sister Pamela O’Bar of Norman, Arkansas; and numerous other family and friends.

Helen was preceded in death by her parents; her siblings, Bennie Carter, Bessie Chaney, Rozilla Gist, Anna Hughes, Edna Mullins, Louise Cogburn; and 2 sets of infant twins.
