Karen Carlene Kephart-Moore, 57, passed away Tuesday, July 10, 2018, at her home with family surrounding her. She fought a long hard battle of cancer.

She was a true inspiration to so many who loved her. She always had a smile on her face and was so positive despite the pain she was in. She was a HERO to many and will be dearly missed. Everyone that knew her will always remember her as the “Sunflower Cowgirl” with a pretty smile.

Karen is preceded in death by her cowboy daddy, David H. Kephart; and her infant sister, Marla Kephart.

She is survived by her mother, Stella M. Kephart of Ashdown, Ark.; her son and his husband, Matthew Moore and Billy Nutt III of Marshall, Texas; her daughter and her husband, Jillian and Matthew Jones of Ashdown, Ark.; one very special grandchild, Zoe Anderson of Ashdown Ark.; many loving cousins; many special friends, and her favorite hospice nurse, Stevey.

Cremation arrangements are under Herndon-Fuqua Funeral Home of Hope, Ark. Her ashes will be spread over the Hill Country in Texas where she loved to spend time. If you would like to make a donation in honor of her please make them to Runnin’ WJ Ranch 4802 Kings Hwy. Texarkana, TX 75501. Her love of horses and children made this place even more special to her. It is her family’s mission to carry out all of her wishes.
