Catherine Naomi (Moosey) Gleva, 100, of Tacoma, WA, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 12, 2024, surrounded by her family. She was born in Monongah, West Virginia, the daughter of the late Anthony Moosey and Bessie Johns Moosey. 

"Cacky," also affectionately known as Sittoo, is survived by daughter Marye Gleva Huddleston of St. Louis (Charles) and son George Gleva of Puyallup (Lisa), grandchildren Sophia Huddleston, George and Jacob Gleva as well as many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Catherine was predeceased by her husband, Joseph, as well as her 9 siblings.
