Ammie was born Nov. 7, 1970 in Yuba City, Calif. She passed away unexpectedly Oct. 22, 2018 at Bay Area Hospital.
Ammie was a wonderful partner to Al Moore and the most loving mother to Elizabeth Grace Moore and her "bonus kid" as she called her, Amber Nelson.
She graduated from Marshfield High School and became a nail technician, a job that she did for more than 25 years. This job provided her with lifelong friends. She worked at Image Makers Salon for the last 10 years, she cherished her clients and thought of many as her family. She was always willing to offer love, encouragement and whatever else she could when someone was in need. She could light up the room with her stories and have whomever she was with, laughing until their stomach hurt. Her sense of humor was contagious. The love she had for her friends and family was unending.
Ammie is survived by her partner, Al Moore; daughter, Elizabeth; stepdaughter, Mandy Moore; mother and stepfather, Geraldine and Richard Adamec; grandfather, Albert Hanson; brother, Dean Tipton all of Coos Bay; sister, Kimberly Tipton-Gray of Tangent; best friend, Rachel Ridge; niece, Cassandra Gray; nephew, Jacob Gray; grandchildren, Kayla Palmer, Justin and Jason Harkins; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her father, Arnold “Butch” Loil Tipton.
