raised in a military family where she also lived in Texas, Canada, Oregon, England and France.

She spent the better part of her life in Hillsboro, Oregon

and graduates from Sunset High School. She then attended Linfield University and transferred to the University of Oregon where she earned her Bachelors of Arts. She was a member of the Sigma Kappa Phi sorority at Linfield and Chi Omega sorority at Oregon. After marrying Ken, they lived in Hood River and then in Gresham for the majority of their lives together.

Katherine was predeceased by her husband,

Kenneth Moss and her parents, Robert and Jean Peel.

She is survived by her son Brian (Holly), daughter

Jennifer (Justin), brother Stephen (Gretchen), sisterin-

law Phyllis, and grandchildren (Maloree, Kody,

and Bryce).

Katherine's most treasured times were planning

and going on family vacations. She loved Hawaii and

the family's Riverhouse the most! Every day would

be carefully thought out and mapped out. We would

make the most of every day, visiting all of the sites,

playing at all of the attractions and having family

meals together. The 4th of July at the Riverhouse was

a valued time we spent together. She always made sure

that we had enough fireworks for the best display in

the neighborhood and excellent meals which always

included hot dogs and smores by the fire one night

and barbecued spare ribs the next.

She was also very involved throughout most of her

life in PEO which is a sisterhood that she joined as a

young adult and maintained an active participant and

leader at times for different fundraisers and planning

of events.

Her other passions included playing bridge and almost any card game including Phase 10 with the grandchildren, reading, going to the casino (occasionally), and keeping up on the news and favorite tv shows. Gardening, history and teaching are also things she enjoyed throughout our life.

Katherine was a substitute teacher by career

and focused her jobs in the areas of English and

Journalism. She enjoyed this career choice because

she took pride in teaching young people and it allowed

her to take time off for her family if needed.
