Obituary of Lee Deana Chase-Moore

Lee Deana Chase-Moore

Deana was born February 6, 1940 in Missouri and moved as a toddler to California where she

grew up. She graduated from Santa Rosa High School. She was the oldest of 5 children, Jack

Hand (deceased), Linda Kornder (Twin Falls, ID), Dan Hand (deceased) and Don Hand

(Wendell, ID). She was a good big sister and always willing to help her siblings. She is survived

by her three children Allen Webster (Tustin, CA), Kathryn Minnick (Eatonville, WA) and Paige

Birt (Houston, TX). She was a very unconventional mother but always loved and accepted her

children fully.


Deana moved to the Seattle area 30 years ago with her husband Henry Moore (deceased) and

fell in love with the area, having lived in Auburn, Sumner, Lake Tapps, Black Diamond, Federal

Way, Tacoma and Eatonville. She loved the rain, the grey, the trees and all things Washington.

Deana was a lover of books and owned many - in fact, the owning of books was very important

to her. They were a blessing to her but a curse to her family who had to move them over and

over again through the years. Many, many books!


Deana was a non-conformist and always wanted to stand out as unique and different. She loved

anything metaphysical or mystical. She loved Astrology, Numerology, Tarot reading, Palmistry,

Karma and anything else that offered answers to life’s questions. Deana practiced massage and

“touch healing”. She was energized by touching others. She met that need by “rubbing” others’

hands and feet - and also by giving long drawn out hugs.


Deana loved friends and was a good friend. She could talk to anyone and would strike up

conversations anywhere, anytime and with anyone. She never met a stranger and kept in touch

with her friends forever. Most of all, Deana was kind. She had a beautiful heart. She always

tried to treat others how she wanted to be treated. If she were to be described in three words:

Books, Unique, and Kind - and she would be proud of that description. She will be mourned

and missed.
