Laura Pepper Moore, age 88, passed away Thursday, September 21, 2017, at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. She was born September 30, 1928, in Knoxville, Tennessee, and lived in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, from childhood until her death. She was preceded in death by her parents, Lida and Rutledge Osborne, her husband, Jimmy Moore, and her sister, Faye Lanham. She is survived by her daughter, Robin Moore, her son and daughter-in-law, Carey and Dana Moore, nieces Martha Townsend of Louisville, Colorado, and Beth Davis of Memphis, and nephew Mike (Debbie) Caldwell of Goodlettsville. Pepper worked at Fidelity Federal Savings and Loan for more than 30 years. After retiring, she worked at Sears for another 25 years. Pepper was a proud, lifelong member of First Baptist Church Nashville. She was on the Cradle Roll there and as an adult interpreted worship services and taught Sunday School for the deaf for more than 40 years, a skill she learned from her parents, who were deaf. Later, she became an active member of the Sojourners class. Above all, Pepper loved three things: her family, her home, and her church. The family wishes to extend special thanks to the staff of VUMC’s Round Wing 7th floor Geriatrics Unit, as well as to Dr. Victor Legner, for all their kindness and compassion. Visitation with her family will be Tuesday, September 26, from 11:30 to 1:00 at First Baptist Church Nashville, 108 7th Ave South, and on Wednesday, September 27, from 10:00 to 11:30 at Cole and Garrett Funeral Home, 127 North Main St., Goodlettsville. A graveside service will follow at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Goodlettsville. Her family requests that in lieu of flowers you donate generously to the Mid-South Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. P.S. Go hug your mother and tell her you love her.

    Ms. Pepper was a sweet lady who always wore a smile. She not only enjoyed her Sunday School class, she also enjoyed the Widows of Worth lunches and programs held at our church. She was bouncy and bubbly all the time of most appreciative of acts of kindness extended to her. She will be greatly missed.

    I remember your Mother, aunt and grandparents.. We lived down the road from them on Monticello Drive . I thought she was the cutest thing and always looked up to her. I live in Christian Manor in Hendersonville and there is a little lady named Rose Marie Steel (married name) and she was a cheerleader with your Mother at Goodlettsville. The last time I saw her was at Cracker Barrel at Goodettsville right after your father passed away. I have been thinking about her lately and was wondering if she was still living. My cousin called me and told me she was it in the paper.
    Sorry for your loss.

    I grew up on Alta Loma and Pepper knew my parents. My parents owned the Dairy Queen in the 60’s and 70’s. I shopped with Pepper at Sears for many years and she was a wonderful lady. I knew about her little dog and I hope it is settled and happy now. It is hard for a pet to lose it’s owner. I was wondering how Pepper was doing after retirement and I saw her obituary. I am so sorry for your loss.
