Mrs. Eula Moore spent half of her life caring for her only daughter, Miriam, after she was diagnosed with polio in 1955. Miriam made a recovery, but the polio paralyzed her from the waist down. Eula worked diligently to ensure her daughter received the best care and education. Miriam studied at Vanderbilt and went on to earn a Ph.D. and teach foreign language at McGavock High School. In 2005 Miriam Moore passed away at the age of 63. Eula, now in her 90s, set up the Fund so that her daughter’s memory and legacy would live on in perpetuity. The Fund benefits Compassion International, an organization benefiting the well-being of children throughout the world, a cause near and dear to Miriam’s heart.
