Miss Abigail Gracen Bacho
Miss Abigail Gracen Bacho, of Newnan, Georgia, joined the angels in Heaven on Dec. 25, 2012. Born to parents Stephen Anthony and Natalie Lois (Moore) Bacho on July 22, 2003, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, she is survived by two wonderful and loving sisters, Hannah Elizabeth and Charlotte Antonia Bacho.
Additional surviving family members include Charles (Butch) Thomas Moore (maternal grandfather), Susan (aunt) and David Vega, Meredith (aunt) and Steven Mazon, Bill (uncle) Moore, Louis (uncle) and Tammy Bacho, Frank (uncle) and Michelle Bacho, John Bacho (uncle), Nena Bacho (aunt), and Beth (aunt) and Charlie Moore.

Abby is preceded in death by Martha Hurt Moore (maternal grandmother) and Frank and Carmela Bacho (paternal grandparents).
Abby was enrolled in the fourth grade at Newnan Crossing Elementary School. She received her First Communion at St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church in 2010. Abby lived such a high spirited life and enjoyed the sport of soccer with Coweta Cannons and Southern Soccer Academy. Abby’s flair for drama led her to summer acting camps and amateur video productions with her sisters, friends and cousins. She recently found her passion for singing and was a member of the Newnan Crossing Chorus.
In keeping with Abby’s loving and generous spirit, the gift of life was shared through organ donation. We were all inspired by Abby’s vivacious and exuberant attitude toward life.
