Kaye Moss

1942-2013

Moss, KayeKaye was born in Wynnewood, Ok and spent her childhood in the area.  She moved with her family to Edmond in 1964  and worked as a waitress at the Corner Restaurant where she later met Jim.  She was an ambitious small town girl who never met a stranger.  Kaye began a career as a secretary for Urban Renewal.  This led to a position for the City of Edmond where she worked in the Police Department and eventually became the Assistant City Treasurer for the City of Edmond where she spread joy until she retired in 2006.  Many years ago, she and Jim were members of the Edmond Jaycees, a leadership organization that guided members to community service.

She dedicated herself to providing her family with not only the material things they needed, but more important, a character and moral foundation that she believed would carry them through life no matter the path they chose.  She enjoyed family vacations, watching her  children and grandchildren’s numerous sporting events and activities, as well as spending weekends dining and dancing with friends.  But she loved being in her home more than anything.  Kaye leaves behind many family and friends and a legacy of love and devotion to each and every one of them that will live on in their memories of her.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Kay has been a special friend since high school, and I will miss her very much. I so hope you are comforted in knowing that so many of us loved, respected and enjoyed spending time with this wonderful woman. May she rest with her Lord, and may you find peace knowing that she does.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Kaye will be missed by her family. Her sister was like a sister to me so I always felt Linda’s family (Kaye, Minnie, etc.) were my extended family. She was a peacemaker and will be greatly missed. We loved her.

  8. Jim & Family,

    Kaye was a wonderful friend and we had many fun times together. We had many laughs when I was teaching Kaye how to line dance in her office on our breaks and then going to the dance clubs to see if she still remembered the dances. She loved her family more than anything in the world and enjoyed all the fun vacations to Fin & Feather. She loved being “Momma Kaye”. Kaye was such a fun and wonderful person and I will miss her greatly!

  9. Jim and Family: We were so sorry to learn of Kaye’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family.

  10. Jim & Family,
    Kaye & I were classmates @ Elmore City many years ago. To know her was to love her. She’s in a better place now, but it leaves us with heavy hearts. The memories of our teenage antics will continue to bring a chuckle. May God comfort each of you until you are reunited with your loved one.
