Walnut Creek, CA
Our beautiful daughter passed away quietly four days before Valentines' Day. Born in Binghamton, NY, Cindy (her childhood name) grew up in Arlington Heights, IL, where she developed many life-long friendships.
She earned a liberal arts degree majoring in business from Principia College in Elsah, IL. Upon graduation, she worked at Xerox Corp, where she won several awards. Transferring to Minneapolis, she became a district sales manager for Data Products Corp.
Tiring of the bitter cold Minnesota winters and being of an adventurous spirit, Lucinda moved to California in 1990. She worked on a friend's Arabian horse farm driving prize-winning horses to Canada and throughout the U. S.
She had an elderly neighbor who didn't have anyone to care for her. Being compassionate, a loving relationship developed. Lucinda decided to become a care giving manager, and a 23-year career unfolded. She gave so much to many grateful seniors who became close friends.
Lucinda had many interests. She loved art and music. Her taste ran from rock and roll to symphonic. She was an excellent pianist and dancer. Her tennis serve was powerful. She enjoyed the swimming pool. She liked world affairs and had many observations about the problems to be solved.
Our fun-loving daughter had the good fortune to study a semester in Italy and travel throughout Western Europe. Years later, she visited Hong Kong, China, Thailand and New Zealand.
She is survived by her parents, Bill & Wanda Moore of Rossmoor; her brother Bill (Connie) of Benicia, CA; her niece Caitlin Moore (James Miervaldis) of Annandale, VA; and her niece Brenna Moore of Cambridge, MA.
She will be missed by many who loved her modest, sunny and optimistic disposition.
Lucinda's spiritual identity lives on eternally with her Father-Mother God.
