A couple of years ago I attended a party hosted by Madeline Hildreth in Octagon. I was thrilled when Miss Mooring walked in the door. After much conversation and storytelling, she leaned in and looked at me in her inimitable way with eyes twinkling and said, "Libby, we've known each other for most of our adult lives. I think you can call me Florence now." I responded, "I don't know that I can do that, Miss Mooring." She replied "try!" Everyone within earshot began to laugh. It was quintessential Miss Mooring! That day I entered the party with Miss Mooring as my high school history teacher who inspired my love of history and my love of learning for which I will always be grateful! I left the party with "Florence" as my dear friend whose spirit, kindness, inspiration, and sense of humor will be missed more than words can express.

Fifty plus years later I vividly recall the sense of joy of being a student in Ms. Mooring's history and government classes at T. R. Miller High School where I and her other students were exposed to a learning experience that included an appreciation of the past and an encouragement to strive to be productive and contributing citizens of our nation and world. Her obvious knowledge and her sense of caring were ever present in her interactions with us.

I had the good fortune to enjoy an extended telephone conversation with Ms. Mooring this past autumn, during which it was evident that she remained the vibrant, perspective, and thoughtful person who played such a vital role in my formative years as a student. During my career as a teacher, and later as an administrator, I often found myself thinking of how she motivated students, and I hoped that I and other educators might have a similar impact on those in our charge.

Florence Mooring's time in the classroom passed several years ago, but her influence never did--and for that, I, for one, am forever grateful.

Miss Mooring was a gracious and wonderful lady.She was a great history and government teacher. I credit her with my interest in current events, politics and the importance of public service. As I recall, she began teaching in the Brewton City Schools in or around 1960. Miss Mooring was a positive influence on many students during her tenure in Brewton. A life well-lived.

My thoughts are with the family. Florence and I graduated from high school at the same time. She was always kind and thoughtful. I last saw her in the summer of 2018 at a small class reunion, and she was the same Florence. She will live on in the hearts of all who knew her. My sister, Margaret Jeffres, also wants the family to know that she is thinking of them.
With love and thankfulness for the life of Florence Rebecca Mooring,
