Warrine Cranston, 73, of La Jolla, passed away in the early morning hours on Friday, September 27, 2013, at Raincross of Riverside. She was born on August 11, 1940, in San Francisco to Jack Burton Moore and Bessie Ora Quillin. Warrine was the beloved wife of 36 years to the late Theodore Cranston.
She is survived by her brother, Jack Moore of Lemon Grove; son, Richard Jacobsen of Broomfield, Colorado; granddaughter, Heather Jacobsen Gardner of Redlands; and great-granddaughter, Averi. She is preceded in death not only by her husband (January 31, 2012), but by her youngest son, Jeffrey Jacobsen (July 7, 2001), and her great-grandson, Ryker Gardner (September 26, 2012).
As a young woman, Warrine enjoyed modeling, acting, and painting. She performed in several plays produced at the Coronado Playhouse and was an avid supporter of the La Jolla Playhouse, San Diego Repertory Theatre, the Old Globe Theater, and the San Diego Symphony. She earned her California Real Estate license and was working in La Jolla as a real estate agent when she met her late husband, Ted. She had a great sense of adventure, loved to travel, and was a published travel writer.
Beautiful, vibrant, and with a quiet wisdom, she will always be our shining star as she rests in God's loving arms.
