Mineral Wells Index

— Alice Beth Moore Ratliff passed into her Heavenly Father's gardens Dec. 12, 2012. Alice Beth was born May 29, 1943, in Mineral Wells to Walter E. and Lura Lee (LuLu) Kayser Moore. She married Ben R. Ratliff on April 1, 1979.

Beth loved variety in her life, as her work outside her home would indicate. She was a bookkeeper, an administrative executive secretary, an amateur artist and craftswoman, and she spent her last 20 years as Relief Postmaster at Fentress and clerk at other nearby Post Offices.

She is survived by husband of 33 years, Ben R. Ratliff; her five brothers: Charlie, of Cleburne; Don of Hollywood, CA; Kenny of Graham; Robert of Seattle, WA; John of Stephenville; their spouses and many other kin. Other survivors include her four step-children: Brent, Babette, Brad and Brandi, their spouses and the six grandchildren.

She now wishes you: “Happy Organic Gardening!”

She was preceded in death by her parents, Walter and LuLu Moore.
