Celia Walker Moss ’51

Born in Portland to Eldred and Leda Walker, Celia attended Washington High School and then Reed College for a year. She moved on to Lewis & Clark College and finally to the University of Oregon, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in 1951. Celia went on to earn a master’s degree in social work, and was a social worker for more than 30 years, retiring as director of social work at Bess Kaiser Medical Center in Portland in 1984.

She moved to Atascadero, California, where she married Roy Moss. In 1999, she moved to Ashland, where she lived at Mountain Meadows, a retirement community. Celia loved to travel, was involved in her community, and was a staunch advocate for human, animal, and environmental rights. She fancied cats, was an excellent chef and an avid reader, and enjoyed talking about politics and current events. Celia is survived by her sister, Linda Allaway, and five stepchildren.
