Earnestine Moye Obituary

 

On Sunday, January 14, 2024, a dear mother, daughter, grandmother, aunt, and a friend to the multitudes, departed this earthly life and returned to the arms of our heavenly Father. Earnestine Moye, age 86 of Pittsburgh, PA , the daughter of  the late Nelson Moye, Sr. & Rosa Lee Fisher, passed away peacefully at UPMC Presbyterian, surrounded by the comfort and love of her devoted children & grandchildren.

 

Earnestine, affectionately known to all as ‘Ma’ was born in Marvel, AR. and educated in the Marvel school system.  She moved to Pittsburgh in the mid 1950’s and worked in housekeeping for the Forbes Healthcare System for over 30 years. Before and after retirement, Earnestine spent her life doing deeds & endeavors primarily for the benefit and goodwill of others. She was dedicated to looking outside of self, beyond her own problems, and sought to bring value to others. She was genuinely the mark of a servant leader.

 

Earnestine was truly a wise woman who was knowledgeable, hospitable, charitable, loving, nurturing, self-controlled, kind, content, financially savvy, generous, a teacher, mentor,  faithful friend, lover of God, and much more.  Surely she exemplified the Proverbs 31 woman as itexalts strong, capable, hardworking, wise women. Assuredly, her name should be written there. In addition to serving others, Earnestine spent time with her family weekly, visiting her sister, grandchildren, and friends, cooking, gardening, reading, and attending social & church events with daughter, Gloristine. She was a faithful member of Mt. Ararat Church since 2018 and simply loved it and its members.

Though Earnestine (Ma) was preceded in death by two sons -Theodis and Thomas Moye, she leaves to cherish her memories her dear children – two sons, Theodore (Chanda) Braggs, Richmond, VA; Sherman (Danita) Moye, Moro, AK; and one daughter, Gloristine Moye, Pittsburgh, PA;  one sister - Doris Ballard, Detroit, MI; thirteen grandchildren – Theodore Graham, Columbus, OH,  Matthew K. Braggs, South Daytona, FL; Adonis Moye, Sherman Moye, Pierre Burrell, Geneva Burrell Webb of Pittsburgh, PA; Brandon Moye, FL, Ebony Moye Atlanta, GA; Catherine Moye Dozier, Christine Moye, Keisha Moye Dunwell, Thomi-Michelle Oladitan, and Ta’Cora Moye Roe of Pittsburgh, PA; eleven great grandchildren, very special friends - Emma Coates, Cecil Hall, and Charles Knight and a host of cousins, friends and family
