Obituary for Erin Akemi Enomoto Moore

Erin was born on May 4, 1972 in San Mateo, California, the daughter of Nancy Yano Enomoto and the late Ronald Akio Enomoto. Erin grew up in Half Moon Bay and graduated from Half Moon Bay High School, the University of California, Davis with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology in 1994 and California State University Sacramento in 1996 with a Masters degree in the field of social work.

Erin was active in student government at Half Moon Bay High School representing the school and being a leader at the Girls State annual Conference and selected as homecoming princess in her senior year. Erin belonged to 4H and raised beautiful prize-winning lambs for the San Mateo County Fair. She worked with California Women for Agriculture at the annual Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Festival. Always friendly and energetic, she was wonderful in helping her parents sell roses at the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Markets in San Francisco and at the Half Moon Bay Flower Markets.

At UC Davis, Erin was an active member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. She was a counselor at The House, an on campus student-counseling center that inspired her to change from law to pursue a degree in therapy and counseling. Erin met Gerald “Jerry” Moore, who was the love of her life, at UC Davis and they enjoyed fraternity and sorority formals, football games and Picnic Days.

Erin and Jerry were married on February 5, 2000 in a beautiful ceremony at the Palo Alto Buddhist Temple. Jerry and Erin moved to Georgia when Jerry was hired as the corporate attorney for Worldwide Asset Management LLC. Erin’s passion for helping others was obvious to everyone who knew her and she inspired many people. While she began her career as a social worker in California and Georgia, Erin found her true gift as a Special Needs Preschool Teacher, teaching countless children to thrive at Cobb County’s McCall Primary School. They are blessed with two wonderful sons, 14-year-old Noah and 12-year old Hayden. Erin was an extraordinary teacher, mentor, friend and a leader in the community. She was admired and loved by her students, parents, colleagues, staff and administrators. Erin was an active volunteer at her sons’ Pickett’s Mill Elementary School. She also supported and assisted with their many activities with Boy Scout Troop 700. Erin’s greatest joy was being a wife and mother and she did an exceptional job.

Erin and Jerry were able to travel to Italy, and with the boys they traveled to England, Ireland, Greece, Turkey and Italy. Erin and the boys spent an amazing week with the scout troop in London. They included the grandparents on numerous trips to Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando and Atlantis Bahamas. With Erin’s mom and siblings Mindy and Mike and their families they vacationed in Honolulu, Disneyland and San Diego.

Erin had an amazing love of life and people and a talent to help those around her in kind and unselfish ways. Erin had lots of remarkable friends, but when she was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, her best friends Paige Freeman, Jane Stowe and Pam Rice put their lives on hold for over six months to be with Erin every day and night. They said she would have done the same for them. We are extremely grateful for their loving care, advocating for Erin, staying at the hospital and making her laugh! We are appreciative of Erin’s loving and supportive family and friends, especially Mindy, Mike, Robert, Cathy, the energetic nephews and grandma. Erin lived an extraordinary fulfilled life that touched many lives. Erin passed away on May 27, 2019 in Marietta, Georgia surrounded by her family and friends. The love and compassion that Erin had for everyone will continue to grow in everyone whose lives she touched.
