Plan Ahead

Jose G. Moore

August 30, 1932 –
 February 14, 2022


Jose G. Moore, “Jody”, was born in Holland August 30,1932. Although grateful to be from the Netherlands and to become an American, she looked to a greater citizenship in heaven, especially on February 14, 2022.

Her life on earth was full of adventure, passion, humor, sorrow and the miraculous. She endured childhood under nazi occupation, immigration and assimilation, widowhood and many other trials, but the Lord was with her in them all. She loved to share her story and she loved to tell about the messiah Yeshua, Jesus Christ, to anyone with ears. She loved Israel, all things Dutch, her family, many friends who became family, and her faithful companion Kevke.

Ultimately, Jose is a woman not defined by her hobbies, her roles or past employment, but by what her Savior accomplished for us all in making us right with God. God did not abandon her in her old age. May her memory and testimony be a blessing.

She is preceded by her parents, two brothers, husbands and other loved ones.

She is survived by her sisters Tina Foley, Ria Zook, Tilly Newkirk and brother Raymond Raemaekers her daughter Leoncia Patterson and sons Matjeu Stapleton, Tony Stapleton and James Paul Stapleton as well as her grandchildren and their children and their children.

“May the hearts of those who seek the Lord live forever.”

One Thought on Jose G. Moore
    Deryck Hinze

    Jody was a beautiful woman. Although my memories with her are faint and our time spent few, I know from them how remarkable she was. As a child in Indiana me and my family lived right across the street from her. She would often invite us over and share her home with us. Sometimes she would babysit us and let us play with older toys from long ago. As my family encountered hardships there was not a moment Jody did not share kindness towards us. Looking back I can recognize the impact she left on us by guiding us towards Jesus and leading us to her church. I can see the presence of God was with her and it forever changed our lives for the better. I can not wait to see her in heaven to thank her for the good she was that I did not see back then. And I pray for those who are closest to her that you may recieve comfort in this season of mourning. Thank you Jody and God bless you all.

"Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again."

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
