Velma Lee Carr Moore, known to everyone as “Madea,”transitioned peacefully on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at Beauvais Manor Assistant Living, St.Louis, Mo.

She was born on December 14, 1916 in Cottonplant, Arkansas to Jack and Annie Mae Thomas.

Moore was the mother to 15 children, including Congressional Representative Maxine Waters. Rep Waters issued the following statement regarding the passing of her beloved mother:

My mother was an extraordinary woman who raised 13 children. Everyone lovingly referred to my mother, Ms. Velma Lee Moore, as “Ma Dear”.

She taught her children strong values and that hard work and determination will always gain respect and lead to success in whatever you do.

She lived to be 97 years old and we are all proud that our mother lived a fruitful and rewarding life. Her life lessons to her family will never be forgotten. We will all miss her love, her admonitions, her humor, and the support she gave to all of her family.”
