INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Tina Moore’s friend’s say she will be missed.

They were left in shock after hearing her lifeless body was found on Wednesday by a woman walking her dog at Fort Harrison State Park.

Just two days later, Tina’s husband and their family pastor walked into the Lawrence Police Department.

Investigators say 65-year-old Robert Moore confessed to choking her after a fight that turned physical. Moore is now facing a preliminary murder charge after confessing to killing his wife of more than 20 years.

Tina Moore’s extended family at American Legion Post 495 are trying not to think about the horrible details.

Instead, they want to remember their friend who had a loving and caring heart for others.

“She never said ‘no’ to anyone. She was always there for us. For Christmas she dressed up as an Elf. For Easter she dressed up for the kids and passed out eggs. I loved her and she loved us,” said Debra Giehl.

Her friends will meet to remember her August 17 at 7 p.m. at the American Legion Post 495

They want everyone to wear her favorite color, purple. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
