Deborah Lynn Moore
Deborah Lynn Moore, 62, of Santa Barbara, crossed over to her next journey on May 27, 2018. Her light shone bright while here amongst us. Shine on, you crazy diamond.
Debbie was born December 26, 1955 in Indianapolis IN to Phyllis J. and Maurice L. Moore. She attended parochial school and, after graduating from Bishop Chatard High School in 1974, attended Indiana University in Bloomington. She stayed in the Hoosier State until the Blizzard of 1978 convinced her to head West, by train, seeking sunnier climates which she found in Santa Barbara. Debbie was proprietress there of Uptown Thrift and later The Mermaid’s Chest, where many will fondly recall her as the “Hat Lady.” She will be remembered by all who have known her for her kind and gentle heart, adventurous spirit, generous nature, hearty laughter and those beautiful blue eyes. Debbie loved her four-legged cat friends, was an expert fisherwoman, and spent many wonderful and memorable vacations with her family in Nags Head NC.
Debbie leaves behind her loving partner of 30 years, Larry Jones, her mother, Phyllis, sisters Terry (Tim) Kulik, Cindy (Richard) Louden, 2 nieces, 1 nephew, 4 great nephews and many dear friends, neighbors and kindred spirits who will miss her dearly. Debbie was preceded in death by her father, Maurice, and infant sister, Robin J.
Her family would like to give special thanks to all the kind, caring and gentle souls at Assisted Hospice Care who provided extraordinary care and support to Debbie and Larry.
Memorial contributions may be made in her name to Sarah House in Santa Barbara whose support, care and kindness meant so much.
