Kathryn Adele Zuber
June 19,1942 - Feb. 6, 2023

Surrounded by love and her favorite yellow roses, we share in sorrow the passing of Kathy Zuber.
Born in Los Angeles, Kathy attended Dorsey High School where she met Ed Zuber. Kathy went on to attend The University of Southern California, graduating cum lade with a degree in Education in 1964 and was a proud member of Alpha Phi Sorority. True Gemini soulmates, Ed and Kathy married on June 22,1963 and were married for 57 years until Ed's passing in 2020. A giver by nature, Kathy made her career in elementary school education. In 1974 she moved from a close-knit family neighborhood in Northridge to Moraga. She remained close to many of her Southern California friends throughout her life and enjoyed traveling back to watch USC football and visit friends.
In Moraga, Kathy taught at Camino Pablo and Donald Rheem Elementary Schools where she started the Gifted and Talented program. She taught second grade for over 20 years and in 1998 was awarded Teacher of the Year for the Moraga School District. To say she made an impact on hundreds of kids is an understatement. She remembered every student and would often see them around town which would bring a big smile to her face. She was a mentor to new teachers, offering guidance and encouragement. With Ed, she was a founder of the Moraga Baseball Association. She was an avid scorekeeper and could always be found at a game with scorebook in hand.
In 2004 Kathy hung up her pencil and gradebook to be a fulltime Nana. Nothing gave her more joy than spending time with her granddaughters, Madison and Tatum. She attended every sporting event and activity they participated in to cheer them on. She taught them how to make her famous mac & cheese which was always on hand. She and Ed loved to travel with the girls and visited Cape Cod, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania as well as trips to Disneyland, Hawaii and Mammoth where Kathy had been going since she was a child. Celebrating Christmas with the family together was her favorite time of year.
Kathy could often be found tending to the hummingbirds, filling her house with flowers from her garden, playing bridge with friends, volunteering at the Moraga Library where she managed the bookshop and mastering crossword puzzles.
Kathy is proceeded in her passing by Ed and is survived by daughter Lynda, son Jon and granddaughters Madison and Tatum. The smile on her face and twinkle in her eyes will be missed by all whose lives she has touched. She will remain forever in our hearts.
