Obituary of Beatrice Moore

Béatrice Marcelle Marguerite Chaumont Moore, 64 On the evening of Tuesday, April 14, 2015, Béatrice Marcelle Marguerite Chaumont Moore passed away peacefully at her home in Blawenburg, New Jersey. The straightforward kindness and quiet compassion with which she lived her life surrounded her in her final days, aspired to in her closest friends and son, Alexander John Moore, who survives her. Bea, as she was known, was born in Paris, France on February 9, 1951. She immigrated in 1970 to America, where she settled in New York City. She was a natural caregiver and worked first as an au pair, sharing her grace with a Manhattan family, with whom she was in touch until her passing. She transitioned to a wonderful career at the American Ballet Theater, where she met her husband of 22 years, Frederick Moore, with whom she raised her son. She moved to Princeton in 1987 and began managing the office of a popular boutique, Merrick's. She remained in the Princeton area for the rest of her life and shared over 25 years with Merrick's, which became the nexus of a wonderful community that carries on her memory today. A memorial service will be held at her home, on April 26th, where her loved ones will celebrate her tenderness and warmth, the elegant sense of style for which she was deeply admired, and her great love of nature and animals.
