Betty L. Moore Obituary
Feb. 27, 1919 - March 22, 2013
A soft, sweet light has dimmed in the Moore Family. Betty Louise Vickers Moore passed on March, 22.
Betty was born Feb. 27, 1919 in Lark, Utah. Her early childhood wasn't what she would have liked, but when her mother married Betty's stepfather, Dick "Dickie" Vickers and moved the family, including two brothers and a sister to Virginia City, Montana, her life changed very positively. She excelled in school and social activities, and her stories were always positive and brought on laughter.
Betty followed her mother into the hair styling profession and moved to San Francisco where she met the love of her life, Frank P. "Binnie" Moore, on a blind date. Her girlfriend told her to come along on the date and she'd have fun - and that was just the beginning of a long and happy marriage. The young couple began their married life in San Francisco where Binnie's family all lived, and thus began a happy, close-knit way of life. The Moore Family was always in the midst of having some kind of fun. They always watched out for each other and their children, and Betty was no exception -- caring for her nieces and nephews while their mothers went to work.
Betty and Binnie's first son, Frank Jr. "Rickie" was born while Binnie was serving in the Army. Soon after that, James "Jim" was born, and the family enjoyed a few more years in San Francisco where their third son, Robert "Rob" was born, and they settled in Vacaville in 1957. While keeping a household and raising "all those boys," Betty got a job at City Hall where she worked in the Finance Department for 17 years. She was the City of Vacaville's first female department manager.
Betty was an active member of the Ephiphany Episcopal Church, taking responsibility in the Altar Guild, Thrift shop and countless other activities.
Even with limited vision, Betty watched all the Giants' baseball games on TV and cheered them on to their World Series victories. She knew all the players, their strengths and their weaknesses. Truly, Giants' Number One Fan.
Betty's life was full of happy memories, good life lessons to learn from, kindness, and smiles. She was a very nurturing lady who always made sure everyone got enough to eat, knew they were loved, and she enjoyed telling stories.
Betty is survived by her sons and their families, Rick and Marilyn of Vacaville, Don and Angie, Marlo and Vivian of Napa, Steve, and Bill of Vacaville; Jim and Beth of Napa, Michael of Sacramento, Tom and Lisa, Spencer and Tyler of Portland, OR; Rob of Vacaville, and numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Betty's life will be held at 3 p.m., Saturday, April 6, at Epiphany Episcopal Church, 300 West St., Vacaville.
