Kay A. Ubil Moyer, 75, of Tow Path Lane, Pine Grove,  passed away on Monday, May 27, 2019 at home.
Born on July 7, 1943 in Pottsville,  she was a daughter of the late Harry and Esther Smith Ubil.
Kay grew up in the community of Jalappa in Pottsville and her grandfather and father owned H. S. Ubil Furniture Store.
She worked  for Reiders Shoe Co. in Schuylkill Haven as a shoemaker until it closed and worked for the Walk in Shoe Co. in Schuylkill Haven until that closed.  She became a CNA and started working at the Tremont Nursing Home.  She also worked for Cedar Haven in Lebanon and Rest Haven in Schuylkill Haven.  She retired in 2018 from Schoolyard Square in Pine Grove where she mostly worked as a dietary aide.  She was very well liked by the residents she cared for and she loved them all.
Kay had a heart of gold and was very supportive of her son's racing career.  She could be found on a Friday night at Big Diamond watching him race.  She was an avid singer and dancer and was a fan of American Band Stand and a lifelong Elvis fan.  She liked to go camping, to the beach and traveling to see lighthouses.
She was a 50 year member of St. Peter' Lutheran Church, Pine Grove, member of the former Mary E. Moore Chapter No. 372 and was a Girl Scout Leader.
Preceding her in death was a brother Glen Ubil.
