Arisa C. Moore Gant

With heavy and mournful hearts, the Gant, Moore and Page-Stryker families announce the passing of Arisa Cytheria Moore-Gant (affectionately called Teta), who suddenly departed this world on July 12, 2019 in Pottstown, Pennsylvania. Teta was a selfless, gentle, loving, and compassionate woman to not only her family, but to friends, clients and co-workers. Her untimely death has carved a massive hole in the hearts of her family, friends, and many others in the United States, Liberia and around the world.

Teta leaves to cherish her memory, her beloved husband William S. Gant, Jr.; her children William S. Gant III (Gugu), Wilbert Gant, Winston Gant (Yatta); Yata Z. Gant (Brian, Sr.) and Samtoinette Liberty (Steve); her grandchildren Naiya Gant, Trevaughn Gant, Asha Gant, Cecelia Gant, Brian A. Williams Jr., Alexandra Gonzalez-Gant, Makayla Gant, Winston Gant Jr., Amara Gant and Zwannies Gant; her mother Lucretia Gray-Moore; her siblings Vivion Moore (Cora), Cecelia Harris, Catherine Harris, Joyce Moore-Liberty (Sam), Anthony Cadmus Moore, Jr. (Helen), Arlene B. Moore, Larry E. Moore, Sr. (Shernett), Cynthia Moore, Owen Spencer Moore, Sr., Katie Moore-Coleman (Frank), Dr. Temora Moore-Gray, Alvina C. Moore, Yvette Lomax, Rebecca Stryker and Hezekiah Franklin; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, and friends.

Teta was predeceased by her parents Rev. A. Cadmus Moore, Sr. and Zenobia Jerusha Page-Moore, her son Danuweleh A. Gant, and other close relatives.

May the soul of our amazing devoted wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend Teta, rest in perfect peace. Teta will be missed dearly, and her memories will forever be cherished.
