Obituary for Mary Kathryn Moore Thompson
Mary Kathryn Moore Thompson, 61, of Snelling, SC passed away after a long struggle with Scleroderma. Surrounded by family, she died in San Antonio, TX on September 10, 2014. Kathryn was born on October 20, 1952 in Augusta, GA. She was daughter of the late Elbert Timothy and Ann Foy Moore. Before becoming ill, Kathryn worked as Guest Services Coordinator at the Witte Museum, Administrator at Scholastic Books, and Administrative Assistant for Karen Klein Real Estate in San Antonio. Kathryn was an avid reader and queen of the crossword puzzle. An avid fan of the Atlanta Braves, she followed them to San Francisco, Phoenix, Saint Louis, Chicago, New York, and Montreal. Kathryn loved to travel, visiting England, Scotland, and Ireland. She also traveled most of Western Europe, living in Germany for three years. And she spent ten unforgettable days on the beaches of Fortaleza, Brazil. But wherever Kathryn traveled, Snelling was always home. And spending time with her extended and immediate family was her most important pastime, especially her six grandchildren.
