July 13, 1936 – Oct. 2020
Barbara was born on July 13, 1936 in Long Beach, California to Mamie and Ralph Conrad. Her family moved to Port Orchard, Washington where she attended South Kitsap High School. She went on to attend Central Washington University, during which time she met the love of her life, Paul Justin Moore. Barb and Paul were married Aug. 3, 1957.
Barb loved Jesus and was baptized and confirmed into the Holy Catholic Church. Her faith was important to her and she embraced her role as spiritual leader to her family, friends and community with great seriousness and love. In all she did throughout her life she modeled Jesus, and was always available to listen, share a kindness and a cup of tea with, not only family, but anyone that needed an ear to bend. Barb had many talents — theatre, music, gardening, reading, writing and snuggling any baby she could wrestle away from the momma. She was a kind and gentle spirit and showed us how to be better versions of ourselves and how to accept and embrace the world around us. She leaves a legacy greater than her large family of children and grandchildren as well as the multitude of students that she impacted through her teaching and catechism classes.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Mamie Conrad, sister Judy Hackstedde, son Patrick Moore and daughter Suzanne (Suzy) Moore. She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Paul Moore, and sister Kathy Powell (nieces, Erin and Kerina). As well as her children and their spouses; Donna Moore, Mike, David (Teresa), Terie (Joe), Steve (Ann), Mary, Gina (John), Paul (Steffanie), Joanie (Stephen) and Jim (Stela). Her many surviving grandchildren are as follows — Kristen and Joe, Justin, Jerod, Jessica and Thomas, Taylor and Connor, Leah and Danny, Anders and Seth, Brooks and Britney, Gage and Rilley, Kyli, Andrea and Gregory. Barb’s well loved great grandchildren are Lily, Koa, Jessie and Ryland, Harvey and “coming soon” Delilah, Braiden and Bradley.
