Kathy was born June 8, 1955, in Hastings, NE to Ethan W. “Mr. Lucky” Sr. and Peggy Ann (Brand) Moorhead. She graduated from Hastings High School in 1973. Kathy married Rod Strong on March 25, 2014, in Las Vegas, NV. She was co-owner and manager of Bullseye’s Sports Bar & Grille and managed several other businesses. Her greatest joy was to check on her customers to make sure their needs were met and offer a lending ear to any that needed it. The hospitality business suited Kathy to a “T”……she will be missed by all.

Kathy was preceded in death by her mother, Peggy Moorhead and daughter, Lisa Moore.
