Kathleen Cavanagh Moore, age 70, passed away peacefully on Sunday October 6, 2019 at home, after a long hard-fought battle with Multiple Sclerosis.  She was born in Brooklyn, New York, daughter of the late Ellen (Coffey) Cavanagh and the late Fred Cavanagh.  She resided in Irvine, CA and previously resided in Ridgefield, CT and Oceanside, NY.  She was a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.

Kathleen worked for over 20 years with the Irvine Unified School District’s Horizon Program.  She oversaw the District’s grant programs that worked with developmentally disabled individuals by providing them with job opportunities and teaching them life skills.

Kathleen was passionate about her children and grandchildren.  She also loved the University of Texas at Austin, attending football games in Austin. Kathleen established the Kathleen C. Moore Private Foundation whose sole purpose is to fund fellowships and research to eliminate the Multiple Sclerosis disease.

Kathleen is survived by her husband Gregory Moore, her children Megan (Moore) Walters and Jeffrey Moore, her son-in-law David Walters and daughter-in-law Paula Moore and five grandchildren.  She is also survived by her sister Ellyn (Cavanagh) D’Onofrio, her brothers Brian, Steve, David and Fred Cavanagh and many nieces and nephews.

A funeral will be held on Saturday October 19, 2019 at St. John Neumann Catholic Church in Irvine, CA. Burial will take place at Ascension Catholic Cemetery in Lake Forest, CA.
