In memory of
JUDITH "JULIA" MOORE
JUDITH "JULIA" MOORE Judith "Julia" Moore, 75, an artist and writer, died December 29, 2020 of complications from lymphoma. Julia was born in San Francisco, CA and grew up there and in Monterey Park, CA. She graduated magna cum laude from Pomona College with a degree in Sociology. She married Allen Moore in 1967 and served in the Peace Corps in Bolivia. They later lived in Palo Alto, CA and Washington, DC, and had two children. After divorcing in 1976, she worked as a graphic designer. She earned an MBA from Stanford University in 1982, before returning to Washington where she worked at Marriott, becoming a vice president in marketing. She married Tom Curren in 1984, and lived in Washington and Oxford, MD until divorcing in 1999. She left the corporate world to focus on painting, a lifelong passion. While her work spanned several periods, a highlight was her series of "Generations" paintings based on photographs of her ancestors, exhibited in Washington, DC and Easton, MD. She moved to Galisteo, NM in 2000. Julia was an active member of the United Church of Santa Fe and her local community. She supported the Santa Fe Opera as well as many charities. Her interests ranged widely and included genealogy, history, religion, travel, music, and literature. In recent years, she developed a website about her family's history and a manuscript mixing memoir with historical fiction about her great-great-grandmother's immigration from Germany to Texas. She loved singing with her church choir and the Zia Singers, and enthusiastically attended concerts and opera simulcasts. She was greatly admired for her accomplishments and her courage, creativity, and good heart. Above all, Julia loved being with family. She reveled in her role as Oma, whether baking treats, inspiring creative projects, or snuggling up to read with her grandchildren. A seeker who looked inward, she always strived for self-improvement and deep connection with others. She remained upbeat while living with cancer and confronted the end of her life with dignity and grace. Julia is survived by her children, Jason (Helen) of San Francisco, CA, and Jenny (Scott) of Falls Church, VA; grandchildren Theo, Alexander, Evelyn, and George; sisters Christine (Robert) and Jean; brother Mark (Esta); three nephews and three nieces; two stepdaughters; and many dear friends. We will miss her deeply. A memorial service will be held later in 2021 when it is safe to gather in person. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the New Mexico Environmental Law Center.
