Kathleen Marie (Stone) Moss(1954 - 2018)

On Monday, August 17, 2018, Kathleen Marie Moss (Stone) passed away at her home in Oro Valley, Arizona. She went peacefully and had family members and friends comforting her. Kathleen was born in Bremerton, Washington on March 30, 1954 to Joanne Stone and the late Warren I. Stone. In addition to her mother, survivors include her husband of 41 years, Jerry Moss of Oro Valley AZ; son David Moss (Rochelle) of Camas, Washington; daughter Alysa Russell of Port Townsend, Washington; 4 grand kids and 1 great grandchild in the oven. She is also survived by her sisters Patty Stone of Belfair, Washington; Therese Fowler of Puyallup, Washington; and Mary Steiner of Leesburg Va; and brothers, Charlie Stone of Fort Smith, Arkansas; Ed Stone of Port Orchard, Washington, and Paul Stone of Tacoma, Washington; and a great many nieces and nephews.

Kathy graduated from Clark Community College's School of Dental Hygiene. She was well known within the dental community as an exceptional clinician performing expanded duties including composite cosmetic dentistry. Kathy worked 33 years for Dr. Dave Swan in Vancouver and had long term friendships with many of her patients that continued until the day she passed. She taught and consulted at both Clark Community College and Mt. Hood Community College Dental Hygiene Schools. In addition to her degree from Clark, Kathy was also a graduate of Washington State University.

Kathy lived in Camas Washington for 33 years, moved to Redmond Oregon and finally lived in Oro Valley Arizona the past four years. She enjoyed activities such as golf, hiking, pickleball and recently glass fusion. She loved real estate and was sought after by many to help with their remodeling ideas, color schemes, designs and furnishings. In fact, that was a common theme in many of her sympathy cards.

After her retirement Kathy and Jerry visited many places in the US, Mexico and Europe. Kathy always felt there was always somewhere else to explore.
