Mary Mooring (left) was born in Wayne County, West Virginia, as the youngest of 12 children. She worked at the Kerr Glass Manufacturing Company for 28 years, among other jobs, and joined the Adventist Church when she was 77. She shares that her happy, healthy life is a gift from God. “The Lord has helped me more than anything,” she shares. Mooring is a member of East Pea Ridge church in Huntington, W.Va.
Mary Jane Carr (right) grew up working on a farm and loves to garden. Carr was baptized into the Seventh-day Adventist Church at age 59 and obtained her drivers license in her 60s. For several years, she was an eager participant in the conference’s annual Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days program. Carr is a member of the Buckhannon (W.Va.) church.
