Glenda Moon Obituary

Glenda Kathryn “Kay” Moon of Kerrville, Texas, passed away on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2023, after a courageous battle with numerous illnesses, including coronary artery disease. She was 84 years old.

Kay was born on May 6, 1939, in Kansas City, MO, where she was adopted at birth by her loving parents Mildred Jeanette Glenn Skinner and Ival Francis Skinner of Atchison, KS. Glenda was soon to be known as “Kay” by her parents who were always better known as Millie and Bud! She was raised in Arlington, Virginia, and graduated from Washington-Lee High School there in 1957. She attended the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA, and soon met the love of her life, Henry A. Moon, who was attending the University of Virginia.  

Kay and Hank got married on July 25, 1959, at the family home in Arlington, VA. Not long after, they welcomed the arrival of their first daughter Laura Kathryn. After Hank’s graduation from UVA in 1961, the new family embarked on a tour of the U.S. via job changes and transfers, like many young families in the 60’s. However, their first stop was Hank’s hometown of Mechanicsburg, PA where they celebrated the arrival of their second daughter, Linda Leigh, in 1962. Following Hank’s career path, the family lived in Detroit, Houston, and San Antonio before eventually settling in Kerrville in 1976.

Kay was well known throughout the Kerrville community thanks to her career as an ophthalmology and eye care technician, working for many years in the offices of Dr. Robert Bowers and Dr. Russell Cravey. Kay’s kind soul, beautiful smile, and quick and easy laugh made every visit to her doctors’ offices a pleasure. While working with Dr. Bowers, Kay was also involved with mission trips to provide eye care in places like Ecuador and Honduras.

Kay was always eager to share her Hill Country lifestyle and her love of the Guadalupe River. Kay and Hank also became rather avid hunters for a time, and it was well-known that Kay was a much better shot than Hank! While at her homes in Ingram and Kerrville, she also had a knack for attracting beautiful wildlife and was a reliable source of deer corn, and vegetable scraps for them. Kay and Hank were particularly touched when they became grandparents in 2001 and got to share their piece of the Hill Country with their granddaughters Olga and Anastasia.

Kay was preceded in death by her parents Bud and Millie Skinner, her husband Henry, as well as both of her daughters, Laura and Linda. It was a difficult grief journey for someone so affable and full of joy.

She is survived by her loving granddaughters Olga Minor and Anastasia Logan, Olga’s husband Alex Minor, and her son-in-law Jeffrey Logan, all from the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Kay is also survived by Hanks’ brother Tim Moon and his wife Lavonne, and nieces Catherine and Tina.
