Mrs. Moak, 84, died Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2017, at her residence with her loving family by her side. She was born April 8, 1933 in Lincoln County, to Doc and Mattie Smith Adams. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a stay-at-home mom who raised her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren in a godly way. Her table was always full of fresh vegetables. She never said a word about how many extra friends that her children brought home at suppertime.
