Obituary for Catherine Moran
Armed with a wit and intellect not seen in many souls, Kate Moran was a fiercely humorous woman who never fell short in entertaining her family. Her sisters and many adoring nieces and nephews would all echo the same sentiment. In equal balance, Kate possessed a loving spirit with which she would do anything for her friends or family, whether that be teaching a nephew to make french toast or picking a sister up past curfew. Whatever your dream may have been, Kate became your biggest cheerleader and did what she could to make the dream come true. Kate’s compassion was another of her many traits that could rival her wittiness. Although she never wavered in expressing her opinion, Kate always had an ear for the other side. She enjoyed fishing, unlocking the mysteries of “Midnight Castle,” and delving in crafts of all sorts. She was truly an artist.
Kate leaves behind three sisters, Joyce, Cherie, and Teresa, along with a multitude of loving nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Patricia. Her family will always miss the tones of Kate’s infamous singing voice. She never failed to pick up the telephone and sing you a “Happy Birthday!” Although her song has faded, her spirit will live on forever in our memories of her ever-present humor and compassion. Goodbye sweet sister.
