Katherine (Kathy) A. Moore passed away peacefully Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021, at the age of 77.
Katherine grew up living on her family farm with her mother, father and brother. She graduated from Holy Trinity High School and attended a business school in Tulsa.
Katherine married Gene Gilles and together they raised their four boys: Francis, Mark, Keith and Brian.
Katherine spent many years working for the Okarche Public School system. She loved to share stories of hauling the Warriors across Oklahoma to various games and tournaments.
She worked for Walmart in Kingfisher and Lucky Star Casino, two positions that allowed her to do what she loved, visiting with people and staying current on affairs.
Katherine was a longtime member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Okarche.
She was a dedicated mother and grandmother. She treasured her family and embraced every moment with them.
She spent countless hours on the sidelines cheering on her kids and grandkids at every sporting event they had, whether it be supporting the Okarche Warriors or the Kingfisher Yellowjackets.
Katherine loved to travel. She was ready for adventure at a moment’s notice.
In 2012, Katherine treated her family to a vacation in Hawaii, marking this as her 50th state to visit.
Katherine was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Anna (Vogt) Annuschat; brother James Annuschat; and husbands Gene Gilles and Joseph Hoehner.
She is survived by husband Danny Moore and her four sons and their families: Francis and Deborah Gilles, Jake, McKenna and Trey; Mark and Sharlotte Gilles; Keith and DeAnna Gilles, Dillon (Rebecca) and step-granddaughter Kailey Morse; and Brian and Tiffany Gilles, Coleman and Adian.
