Kaye’s sister-in-law, Diane Dodge Smith, also preceded her in death.

She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Roger Moore. One of her greatest joys in life was raising her 3 daughters...

After West Liberty High School, Kaye graduated from Carnegie Medical College.

She briefly worked as a physician's assistant for Dr. David King as well as other medical offices. She will be remembered as a very talented and crafty seamstress. She loved to make clothes for her daughters, grandchildren, and even their dolls. She spent so much time at the fabric store that she ended up taking on a part-time job there! One of her other amazing talents was her cooking! Her family & friends were always amazed by her delicious food as all things were made with a lot of love. Many family dishes and traditions will continue with her legacy. Kaye assisted at her husband's financial advisory firm until she retired. Life didn't stop there...she became a world traveler in her later years. She, along with her husband, took two long world cruises as well as many other international trips. They traveled in 84 countries and territories.
