KATHERINE ‘KITTY’ MOORE SMITH April 7, 1931–Nov. 6, 2020

Heaven gained another angel on Friday, Nov. 6, 2020. Kitty was blessed to be one of 13 children raised in a Christian home. Large family gatherings with lots of food and laughter were regular occurrences. The “Moore Sisters” and extended family were especially close and always cared for one another during sickness or just to be together to play games and relive stories from their childhood. Every gathering was sure to include laughter and a practical joke or two—especially by the twins, Kitty and Lizzie. It was Kitty’s outgoing and caring personality that enabled her to meet and marry the love of her life, Gene. They were only together a short time but made the most of their time traveling or just working on electrical jobs together.

Kitty was preceded in death by her parents, Rosser and Ruth Moore; husband, Gene Smith; siblings, Vivian, Alex, Shirley, Helen, Jessie, Audrey, Russell, Marie, Elsie, and Marion, and her son, Anthony Carter. She is survived by her twin sister, Lizzie; baby sister, Frances (Herbert); sister-in-law, Ruby Jean; son, Al (Mary); daughter, Nina, and granddaughter, Nikki, as well as many nieces, nephews, and the many friends she loved like family.

The family is especially grateful for the entire staff and residents of Gloucester House for caring for her, laughing with her, and loving her. Thank you for being a part of our extended family.
