Haley Nicole Moss

Haley Nicole Moss age 15, beloved daughter, sister, great granddaughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin and friend returned to the loving arms of her Father in Heaven Saturday, August 14, 2010 after a courageous, lifelong battle with a congenital heart defect. Born on May 14, 1995 to parents David and Reiko with big brothers Justin and Cody in Oxford, Ohio. She was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints by her father on June 21, 2003 in Monterey, California. Haley attended elementary schools in Lafayette, IN; Fort Lewis, WA; Monterey, CA and American Fork, UT. She then advanced to Woodbrook Middle School and completed her freshman year at Lakes High School in Lakewood, WA.

Haley loved learning and excelled in her education earning mostly straight A’s despite missing a significant amount of school due to effects of her heart condition. Haley diligently attended early morning Seminary her freshman year and loved her seminary class. She completed The Book of Mormon, memorized all the scripture mastery’s but most importantly grew in her love of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Haley loved to attend church and has developed a strong testimony of her savior Jesus Christ through daily scripture study and prayer. Haley is a great example to her family and friends for her determination to face trials and tribulations with unwavering courage and faith. Haley gave her all to everything she was able to do and was quick and excited to learn new things.

Haley has been treated by many different hospitals and doctors over her life and has experienced many hospital stays. Her first request after the procedure or surgery was done was “ice chips” because she knew that was all she could have. She was blessed to have such skilled and knowledgeable professionals care for her and appreciated all efforts to make her well and keep her comfortable.

Despite all of her heart complications, Haley rarely complained about her physical limitations. Instead, she chose to focus on the things that she loved such as: reading good books, tending children, photography, crafts, cooking, playing games with her family, playing the piano and watching her favorite movies and TV shows. Despite her physical limitations, she also enjoyed swimming, golf, rock wall climbing, going to the beach and mountains, walks with her family and touring big cities. Haley comes from a large extended family with grandparents and many aunts, uncles and cousins whom she loved to visit and spend time with. Haley’s career goal was to become an elementary school teacher because she loved children and knew she could be a positive influence on them.
