She was a woman of strong faith and dearly loved by those who knew her. She was born May 8, 1935 to W.A. “Mutt” and Marcella (Lambert) Britt. She graduated from Lamesa High School in 1953, then attended Business College in Lubbock. She worked in bookkeeping and retail. In 1954 she married Dan Moore. They were married 63 years. They had three children, Barry, Ronnie, and Julie. She was a member of First Baptist Church in Lamesa, where she was baptized. They moved to Lubbock in 1988, joining Indiana Avenue Baptist Church. She retired from the Lubbock County Courthouse in 2000. A statement she always made was “God has never let me down.” Joy is survived by her son, Barry Moore; and daughter, Julie Owen and husband, Rodney all of Lubbock; six grandchildren, Danny Wade, Wendi and Steven Britt, Pierce and Piper Owen, Daniel and Desiree Moore; and eleven great grandchildren.

  1. I watched you love your family as only a Mother can .
    You gave of yourself and through it all , you asked God to walk with you.
    You always remembered my birthday and always wrote a special note to me and I’ll always treasure your words and more than I deserved .
    You always had words of encouragement and thank you for being their when my parents passed away.
    You showed your love for God in your last days when you took the young nurse and let her read the scritures to you and her reading to you after her shift was over and her crying after knowing you would be moving .
    You encouraged her to read her bible and to find a church that she could meet like followers.
    We call that a touch because only God can change us, because we are just encouragers .
    You are my hero for showing how to disciple others even in the bad days .
    Thank you for being a Jesus follower.
    Love you

    Joy was a beautiful soul. She was very kind to me in the time I worked with her at the Lubbock County Courthouse. I was a very young single mother, and Joy quickly took me under her wing. She uplifted me daily. My prayers to your family during this time. I will never forget Joy!
