Benita Elizabeth Moore has been missing since October 24, 1989. In an effort to bring temporary closure to our family, we celebrate her life with this memorial website.  We also hope to bring attention to abuse victims, missing persons and the struggles and grief faced by the families they leave behind. Benita is gone but not forgotten. We will celebrate her life with a memorial service on November 28, 2009 at Bethlehem Lutheran Church Gary, IN.
