Kathryn Ann Fife Moen, aged 68, died May 12, 2018 after a long f***ing battle with cancer. Kathy was born September 17, 1949 in Boston, Massachusetts to William and Frances Theiss Fife.

Kathy was extremely private and would absolutely abhor the idea of an obituary. We are going to write one anyway because folks need to know what an amazing person our mother, sister, grandmother and friend she was. Her entire life was spent making sure everyone she loved had what they needed to the exclusion of herself. She worked tirelessly to make sure her daughters had every advantage and be successful women. She loved her grandchildren fiercely and loved every moment spent coloring and playing games with them. Kathy lived her life through the joy and happiness she experienced with family.

Kathy is survived by her daughters Christine Moen Watson and Rebecca Moen Phillips, her brothers, Andy (Becky) and David Fife, her son-in-law Kyle Phillips, and her grandchildren, Max and Karly Kleiman and Brady, Orion and Nolan Phillips. She is also survived by Beulah Moen, Teressa Moen & Mark Kandianis, Sylvia Moen Webb, Steve Webb and Stephen & Erik Webb.

Kathy was one of the most courages women I knew with the battle she was waging while keeping a positive attitude anytime I was around her.
I normally saw Kathy once or twice a year at family functions. We always spent time talking at these events usually sipping on a glass of wine and ALWAYS talking about the children and her grandchildren. I will miss these moments very much

Our heartfelt sympathy for you girls, the grandchildren and all of the family. Your mom was most definitely a private person. However, she was a wonderful neighbor. I can't forget when we first moved into our new home and found out that all of our neighbors were named Kathy, it was unique and has been that way for for over 30 years in our little cul-de-sac. We watched out for each other. When you girls were younger you would babysit for our boys. Now you are grown with families of your own. We were devastated to hear that the cancer had returned and would not know the extent of it until a little over a week ago. This devastating disease has taken many of my family as well and words cannot express the hurt and anger that comes to the members of the family that have to stand by and watch one so loved suffer. It was on this day 5/15 that cancer took my sister. Your mom was so proud of you girls and the grandchildren. When we saw her out working in the yard before she was so sick she would speak of you. There are no answers, but I can tell you to look to the Lord for comfort and peace as you deal with this huge hole that is now in your heart. May it be filled with wonderful memories and thankfulness that she is no longer suffering and you will hold her again in heaven. God Bless. The Bender Family - Kathy, Leonard, Jason, & Jimmy
