Jane Ann Lampton Moore, MD, 52, of Jackson, died after a six-month battle with cancer on April 1, 2022 at her home surrounded by her family.

The only daughter of Dr. and Mrs. TD (Bob) Lampton, she was born on March 10, 1970 in Jackson at the former Baptist Hospital. She was the youngest of their five children and grew up on Kings Highway in Jackson, attending Jackson Academy, where she made lifelong friendships. As a senior there, she was selected the most beautiful in her class. She attended Rhodes College in Memphis, where she studied art. After two years, she decided to pursue medical school and transferred to Mississippi College, before graduating from the University of Mississippi. She received her medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine at Jackson in 1999 and completed a family medicine residency at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, where she served as chief resident.

She married Dr. Alan Moore in 1999. Her greatest joy was her husband and three children Olivia, Lampton and Lytle. She loved her hometown of Jackson, especially the Belhaven neighborhood and its supper club. She was an engaged mother in the lives of her children at First Presbyterian Day School and Jackson Preparatory School, supporting their involvement in academics and sports. She was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church and cherished her Thursday morning Bible study and the Stewards Sunday School class.

As a young girl, she was a competitive swimmer for the River Hills swim team, holding several city records, then coached the club team (the River Rats) for many years with her brother Luke, winning several city championships. She was also a competitive tennis player who won state championships in high school and played varsity tennis at Mississippi College. She was a skilled artist in various formats, especially watercolors and oils. She was a student of Sam Gore and Wyatt Waters, whose teaching and work inspired her style and art. She has won several art awards, including first prize in the Duke University Faculty Art Competition. While a medical student, one of her watercolors and one of her oil paintings were selected as winners of the Frank Netter National Art Competition. This work was featured in two issues of the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1999. His artistic work also graced two covers of the Journal of the Mississippi State Medical Association. A lithograph she created of Eudora Welty, whom Welty admired, was displayed at the Eudora Welty Library in Jackson and is still part of their permanent collection.

She practiced family medicine at Lincoln Community Health Center in Durham and was a consultant in family medicine at Duke University Medical Center. After returning to Mississippi, she practiced family medicine with her brother Luke at the Magnolia Clinic in Magnolia, serving on its board of directors and as a family physician. His patients remember his kindness and his attention. His colleagues remember his grace and integrity. His zest for life and inherent professionalism permeated his work as a family physician.

She is survived by her husband Alan; daughter Olivia; and his sons Lampton and Lytle, all of Jackson. She is also survived by her mother, Sara Lea Lott Lampton of Magnolia; four brothers: Ted Lampton of Flowood; Dr Brett Lampton and his wife Chancie of Oxford; Dr. Luke Lampton and his wife Louise of Magnolia; Mark Lampton and his wife Nicole of Jackson; and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her father in 1998.
