Betty Jane Moran (96) of Redwood City died March 16, 2018 in Santa Cruz.
Born to Gertrude and Robert Kane, she graduated from Burlingame High and College of San Mateo. Betty married William J.

While enjoying 30 years at Stanford's Emporium, Betty loved being a mom, sewing clothes and dance costumes, keeping a beautiful garden and cooking incredible meals. She would plan picnics at the beach and visits to the ballet and theatre with the girls. She won many honors for her cakes, pies, jellies and flower at the fair. She loved to have friends for dinners and parties, enjoyed summers at Lake Tahoe and travel, visiting Japan many times to see much loved exchange student, Yoshiko Hirano, as well as many other adventures.
In addition to being a much loved wife, mother and grandmother, Betty was active in Redwood City from PTA, Girl Scouts, and American Women's Voluntary Services, to serving on the Senior, Cultural and Planning Commissions, and the Peninsula Celebration Association. She was a founding member of the Heritage Association, Habitat for Humanity and the Casa de Redwoods and Lathrop house. She enjoyed the Native Daughters and the Peninsula Hills Women's Club and reading to school children. Citizen of the Year in 1994 and 2005 and Grand Marshall at the RWC 4th of July parade in 2004, were some of her proudest moments. Her lovely smile and charming nature were enjoyed by family, friends and caregivers alike. She received loving care at Alexandria Victoria aided by Hospice of Santa Cruz.
