Kaitlin Patricia Weiss Moss, 40, peacefully passed away Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at home surrounded by her family.
Kaitie was born on St. Patrick’s Day, 1981 in Southfield, Michigan to Peter Emory Weiss and Joanne Patricia McGrath.
To know Kaitie was to love her. She was the brightest light in the room. Her smile you would never soon forget. Her blue eyes sparkled with wonder and radiant love. She was someone who made you feel like you’d known her for years. Words could never describe the beauty of her soul and the love she gave to all those around her. Her passion for life was like no one you had ever known. She truly lived every single moment of her beautiful life to the fullest. She was a beloved wife, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, niece and cousin to many.
Kaitie attended Our Lady of Sorrows Grade School in Farmington, MI and Mercy High School in Farmington Hills, MI. She participated in many team sports throughout her schooling, including equestrian training and competition. She received a scholarship to play Soccer at Sienna Heights University (Adrian, MI), where she played for two years. Kaitie earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Eastern Michigan University, and an Applied Science Degree in Veterinary Technology from Wayne State University. Working with and caring for animals (primarily horses), was always her passion and goal.
Since a little girl, she loved her horses. To her, they were her Heaven on Earth. Her escape. Her absolute passion. Kaitie went on to make a career out of this passion as an Equine Veterinary Technician. Working at Asheville Equine soon after moving to North Carolina and later at Hazelton Place Farm in Fairview caring for 12 horses on the farm property. She was her happiest in the saddle on her beloved bay mare, Belle, or running through the pasture with her baby dogs Winston and Redford.
She had many other passions, and on the top of that list were her niece and nephew, Brianna and Kingston. Nothing made her heart as full as watching them at their soccer games and other sports. If Kaitie was at the game, you definitely knew it. She was the loudest supporter there. To say she was proud of these kids is a tremendous understatement.
Another soul dear to her heart was her stepson, Liam. When together they were inseparable. Always laughing, singing music together & playing with the dogs on the farm. She loved Liam 120% as her own. She was such a natural mother figure to him. Guiding him in life with love and wisdom. Nothing was as sweet to Travis’ ears like the sound of those two laughing from another room. It was truly the most comforting sound he could possibly hear.
She was an incredible friend to all those who were lucky enough to have her in their lives. Her love and compassion reached far and wide to the darkest corners of this planet. You learned this in the first 5 minutes of meeting her. If you were a friend of Kaitie, you considered yourself lucky, blessed and grateful.
In addition to her loving parents, she is survived by her husband, Travis Dean Moss and a son Liam Travis Moss; her brother Matthew Peter Weiss, his wife Ebony and her niece and nephew Brianna and Kingston Weiss; her mother-in-law Emily Reynolds, her sister-in-law Christy West and husband Dale West of Leicester.
A celebration of Kaitie’s life will be held at a later date.
