Kathleen Florence Moretto
Stockton - Kathleen Florence Moretto, born October 1, 1937 in Stockton, CA, entered into eternal life on June 28, 2021, following a battle with Alzheimer's disease.
She was the beloved wife for over 62 years of Elmer Moretto, loving mother of John Moretto (Kaunoa Hoopai) and Mike Moretto (Kelly Smith), and grandmother of Wave Moretto. She was the dear sister of Eugene Bisagno, Jr. (Virginia) and Janet Marple (L. David). She is survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Kathleen was born to Eugene and Melvina Bisagno of Stockton, attended local schools, and graduated from San Jose State College with a Bachelor's degree in Education. After her marriage, she volunteered at a Catholic grammar school in San Leandro, before moving to back to Stockton.
In addition to raising her family, she was active in school and volunteer activities, including at the Church of the Presentation. She later tutored parish schoolchildren, which she greatly enjoyed.
While working with children was the highlight of her life, Kathleen also had a passion for music. She was a cellist and pianist and played with the Stockton Symphony Orchestra while in high school.
She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother and grandmother and will be greatly missed.

I was very sorry to learn of Kathleen's passing. She and all the Moretto family will remain a special memory of shared time and experiences in Presentation parish and later at the accordion gathering. My sincere condolences to Elmer, John, Mike and families. Kathleen and all of you are in my prayers always. Bonnie Piccardo-Selg, Germany

Sorry for your loss of; Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Sister. Even though the demise of a loved one is difficult, sometimes that pain of loss becomes a gift from God, as our family also experienced the same situation in the passing of my father Amerigo many years ago. I decided to send my condolences, as Eugene Bisagno Jr., was a childhood friend, and I remember the family home on Roosevelt Street near the "Triangle", as we lived several blocks away on Pleasant Avenue (East of the Triangle) Eugene Jr. and I started Grammar School together in the inaugural year of Saint Gertrude's Grammar School, and I believe that Kathleen also attended school there, possibly 7th or 8th grade, in that same initial year. It appears, per the written obituary, that Kathleen continued practicing her Christian upbringing throughout her life, as I believe her parents also instilled in their children. God Bless Kathleen, and all of your family. P.S. I remember Eugene Sr. passing the collection basket for Father Noonan during Sunday Mass Service at Saint Gertrude's Church. I also remember Elmer Moretto playing the Accordian along side of his brother at the Italian Gardiners picnics at Micke Grove as John Pisacco would sponsor recitals of his student musicians. Also, in Grammar School with Eugene Jr. , Corduroy Pants, Off White Shirts s/Blue Tie, Traffic Boy Red Jackets and hand carried Stop Signs
