Katherine Ann Moore

June 11, 1953 — March 26, 2024

Katherine Ann Moore (Kathy) passed away the early morning of March 26, 2024.  Born to Tom and Dorothy Moore on June 11, 1953 in Bluefield West Virginia then relocating to Akron, OH with her family as a teen.

 

She was a 1971 graduate of Akron North High School learning the necessary skills (at the time) shorthand and typing. These skills, along with her analytical mind, led her to Washington D.C where she worked for the U.S Environmental Protection Agency. Maryland is where "Kathy" became "Katherine".  Katherine always remained a team player. Stating that the only reason she was successful was because of the people she surrounded herself with. She truly loved her job, her coworkers and friends, (some which became family) Kathy was recognized by 2 presidents for her contributions in her career and truly loved the contribution she made.  Kathy retired as a contract and grant team lead after 35 years.  Once retired, she returned to Akron to spend quality time with her family who she loved deeply.  She volunteered as a trainman and as a polar express elf with her dad on the Cuyahoga Valley Train, and spent quiet days stitching, shopping and talking with her mom. 

 

Katherine was an avid cross stitcher and quilter. She joked that the amount of fabric and floss that she has accumulated could prevent JoAnn Fabric from filing chapter 11.  You could always find her starting many projects and once.  Some would get finished, but only if they were being made for someone that touched her heart.  Kathy also loved to bake and cook. Any chance she could, she would entertain.  Kathy just loved giving to others.  Whether it be food, a crafting piece or something she bought because "I just knew you would love it".

 

 As her health declined, she moved into Danbury Senior Living. It was a struggle for her in the beginning, losing her independence. But that processing, analytical mind kicked in and after a few months had made friends, was entertaining, stitching, sewing and making sure she told the director how to run his building :) She proudly showed her stubborn and feisty side, wearing like a badge of honor.

 

Kathy had so many people that advocated for her throughout her life. Big thank you to Dr. Troy Larson and his wife Rachel, for helping Kathy find God and knowing the comfort that the Lord will bring her.  Thank you for the outstanding care from her numerous physicians, DaVita Munroe Falls, Danbury Senior Living Tallmadge and Southern Care Hospice.  All of you not only had the best interests of Kathy in mind, but also her sisters Amy, Carol and Ann. We will be forever grateful.

 

Kathy is predeceased by her brother Thomas A Moore, father Thomas C Moore and mother Dorothy J Moore (Doyle). She is survived by her sisters Amy Moore, Caroline Krack (John), her niece Amanada Moore and long-life friend turned sister Ann Modzel.
