Sara Rivkeh Moore Obituary
There are people who live life, and there are people who live to change lives. Sara Rivkeh Moore changed the life of everyone she met. With her sudden passing Friday, November 15, 2013 hearts are broken.
Sara was born to Ward and Raylyn Moore in Pickett State Park, Tennessee, while her parents were driving from Arkansas to New York City, where they lived for a short time before returning to California. Sara grew up in the family home on Park Street in Pacific Grove, where one of her sons was born and two of them still live.
Sara graduated from Pacific Grove High School in 1980 and had recently earned her BA in Psychology from California State University, Monterey Bay. She was working toward her Masters in Social Work when she died.
At 48, Sara had just celebrated 14 years of sobriety. She used her experience with addiction to help save lives, guiding countless women and men to recovery. Sara was a true pillar of the community – an amazing and nonjudgmental friend, dancer, singer, wife, mother, counselor, and activist. Her generosity, even when she had little to give, will be long remembered.
Her desire to make a difference in the world was matched only by her musical talent, her enthusiasm for swing dancing, and most of all, her love for her family, including her wife, Christine Moore of Marina; her sons, Klaus, Skylar, and Jody Campbell of Pacific Grove; her sisters, Hannah Moore of Virginia, Jeanne Mileti of Carmel Valley, and Beth Penney of Pacific Grove; her brothers, Ben Moore of Monterey, Sam Moore of Virginia, and John Penney of Pacific Palisades; her former husband, Robert Campbell of Pacific Grove; and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by both her parents.
Sara will be sorely missed by all. A celebration of her life will held at a later date.
