Sissy grew up in Houston, Texas. She attended high school at Channelview High School and later went on to cosmetology school. Sissy was happiest when she was outdoors. She spent many hours fishing and camping, often sitting around a fire. Sissy enjoyed walking and she would push her momma around in her wheelchair. She loved her momma so much and was her main caretaker for years. Sissy took joy in sitting outside on her porch listening to her windchimes. She was so proud of her flowers and spent a lot of time making them beautiful. Sissy’s greatest joy was her family. She was never happier than to be surrounded by family and friends, cooking for them and all her neighbors. Above all else, Sissy loved the Lord. She spent hours reading her bible and loved taking care of the less fortunate. Sissy is now singing and dancing in the sky with the Lord that she held so dear.
Sissy is survived by her mother, Myrtle Elaine Oliver; children, Sherrie Lloyd and husband, Shannon of Timpson, Tx, Jacob Moore of Hemphill, Tx, Amber Yancey and husband, Omar of Lufkin, Tx, and Christopher Moore and girlfriend, Kirby Ford of Hemphill, Tx; sister, Norma Austin of Channelview, Tx; grandchildren, Ryan Battles, Jordan Lloyd, Jase Lloyd, Mia Lloyd, Connor Moore, Addy Yancey, and Carter Yancey; great-grandchild, Steevie Jo Battles; best friend, Terry Taylor; and her loving dog, Dakota.
