    Notes 
    • Resident of Oakland
      Shirley R. Moore passed away peacefully at her residence in Oakland, CA, Oct. 21, 2012 at the age of 90. She will be interred at Grace Cathedral's Columbarium, next to her husband, the Rev Russell C. Moore.
      Born May 1, 1922 in Tacoma, Washington to Mabel H. Gray and Richard O. Roberts, Shirley moved to California and settled in the East Bay in 1955 with her three children after her first marriage ended. She worked for many years at Cutter Labs and UC Berkeley's Cooperative Extension. She provided a loving, supportive home where the bread was homemade, stories were read aloud around the dinner table, summers included road trips to visit friends and relatives and Sunday mornings were set aside for church. She wed Russ in 1968, continued working, and enjoyed time spent with grandchildren and visiting Wales to trace family background. We will miss her humor and the love and concern she bestowed on her family and friends.
      In addition to her husband Russell, she was predeceased by her brother Donald Roberts, daughter Barbara Cantora and stepson Michael Moore. She leaves behind her son, Richard Jones (Kathleen) of Columbia, MD, daughter Patrice Jones (Donald Gates) of Oakland, stepdaughters Pat Peters (Doug) of Sebastopol and Margaret Moore of El Cerrito; grandchildren MAJ Garrett Jones (Sarah), Richard Cantora, Kerala Hise, Jessamyn Hise, Patrick Anderson (Julia), Brook Forkas (Michael), Autumn Kruse, William Kruse (Tinuviel) and 16 great-grandchildren.
      Her memorial service will be Sat. Nov. 17, at 4 pm, St. Alban's Episcopal Church, 1501 Washington Ave., Albany, Ca
