Carol “Kit” Cameron Moe was born May 28, 1960 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to parents Walter “Boyd” Lawson and Norma (Burton) Cameron. At a young age, Carol’s family moved to the United States where she spent the majority of her childhood growing up in Elmira, N.Y. and Covington, Ky. The family moved to Lake Mills when Carol was 17, and she graduated from LMHS in 1978.
On July 28, 1979, Carol was married to David Moe at Salem Lutheran Church. During their 30 year marriage, the couple had three children: Bridget, Brendon and Brenna.
Carol was not the type of person who let the grass grow under her feet; she was always busy, always on the move, and you could hear her voice coming from a mile away. Her laugh was distinctive and will not be easily forgotten. She owned and operated the Coffee Shop in Lake Mills. It was the perfect fit for Carol, as she was definitely a “people person.” She and David owned many rental properties in the area, which kept them both busy.
Known to listeners as “Kit Cameron,” Carol was a radio personality for KIOW 107.3 in Forest City for over 15 years. Carol continued to work for Coloff Media at stations in Charles City and New Hampton, and she never got tired of representing KIOW in local parades and being active during the WIT Rally in Forest City annually. In 2008, she won the Best Supporting Actress Award by the Iowa Motion Picture Association for her role as Roxanne in Out to Pasture.
She was very civic minded, serving as an EMT on the Lake Mills Ambulance and Joice Fire Department, she was a member of the Central Iowa Tourism Board, organized many local blood drives, and volunteered as a Girl Scout leader. She served many years on the Joice City Council and was the write-in winner for mayor of Joice (a position she politely declined.) When she had the time, Carol loved to bowl and even attended national tournaments.
Carol lived a gypsy lifestyle, traveling in her RV, visiting family in New York and Oklahoma often, and going wherever life took her. Her cats were her companions, and moved wherever she did, ultimately ending up living in the Des Moines area. She was a courier for Right Dose Pharmacy at the time of her death.
Survivors include her three children: Bridget (Matt) Edson, Ionia; Brendon Moe, Mason City; and Brenna Moe, Farmington, Minn.; three grandchildren: Reese, Ryan and Aiden Edson, Ionia; and her three beloved fur babies: Sammy, Bella and Sophie. She is also survived by siblings: Kathleen Cameron-Reed, Horseheads, N.Y.; Patricia (Robert) Lakin, Mason City; Walter “Skeeter” Lawson, Jr., Montour Falls, N.Y.; Victor Lawson, Columbia Cross Roads, Penn.; and David Grandy, Canada; and many extended relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; siblings: Margaret Grandy, Gloria Grandy, infant Eric Grandy, Janine Adams, Janice Lawson, and Samuel Benjamin Lawson; and a close friend, Jason Meyer.
