She was the second of 5 children. She was married to Robert A Moss and had 3 loving children.

She attended the University of Illinois and graduated with a business degree in Psychology. Her husband, Bob, was a pilot in WW2 and the Korean War and she served as one of the original stewardesses for American Airlines. Both she and her husband enjoyed everything related to aviation. She retired from Southern Tech University. She was a member of The Orchard Church in Loganville, GA. She was one of the early founders of the Atlanta Chapter of the Kiwi Club, and was a member of the Pinetree Country Club in Kennesaw for many years. She enjoyed playing golf, reading, bird-watching, gardening, spending time with her friends, and long walks outside.
Her underlying message to us was “to surround yourself with good influences and always stay in touch with your friends and relatives”. She always had a peaceful presence about her, was filled by the Holy Spirit, and will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
She will be interred with her husband at the Georgia National Cemetery in Canton, GA.
