Kasten was widowed last year, and her two children are from that marriage. Her late husband, Kory Kasten, is a former U.S. Marine from St. Louis who died after a long battle with cancer in April 2017.

Kasten, Kate Elizabeth (nee Moeckel) Friday, December 29, 2018. Beloved wife of the late Kory A. Kasten. Dear mother of the late Jonathan Douglas and Zoe Jane Kasten. Dear daughter of Frederick Moeckel and the late Jane Mary Moeckel; Dear sister of Robert Charles (Casey) Moeckel.

"Big Love" may be a recent motto for the Kasten family, but for Kate Elizabeth (Moeckel) Kasten, big love has always come naturally to her. On the night Kate was born, August 26, 1979, she brought joy and love to her grandparents as she was the first grandchild on both sides of the family. Her bright smile and adorable blonde curls caught the attention of everyone she met. Her loving spirit drew family and friends to her in droves. Family gatherings meant big love and hugs and Kate looked forward to traditions, like Christmas dinners at Grandma Peggy's house with all the aunts, uncles and cousins. Summers at Grandma Buzz's condo in Florida with her family. When Kate was 7 years old, her parents adopted her smart and spunky little brother, Robert. An instant bond formed between them and she became his protective older sister. Rob learned about big love from Kate and he eventually became her protector too - "her seaweed eater", as she lovingly called him.

Kate had big love for her friends too. Childhood besties and adult girlfriends all felt a sisterhood with Kate. From fashion shows with Molly to day trips and vacations with the neighbor families. Kate shared her big heart, infectious laugh and fun loving spirit with with all. Simple times like baking Christmas cookies with her girlfriends to weekend excursions at the lake with friends, gave Kate limitless opportunities to show her love for her friends.

When Kate married Kory, her ability to express even more love exploded. Together, they opened their hearts and home to friends and family, with no limits. If you needed a place to stay, the Kastens welcomed you in. If you wanted a place to hang out on a Saturday, they provided food and fun. If a shoulder to lean on was what you needed, Kate and Kory were there for you - no hesitation, no stipulations - just big love there for you!

Soon the blessing of children entered their lives as Kate and Kory welcomed their two sweet children, Jonathan and Zoe. Kate poured her big love into these kids as was evident by the joy and friendship Jon and Zoe brought to their own friends and classmates. Fun loving and fearless - caring and smart, describe both children. Each year, all of their friends and classmates (and all of the parents too), were invited to a big birthday party for Jon and Zoe at Suson Park. Games, food and prizes for all, but most of all smiles, hugs and love were abundant. All the Kastens made sure that guests had a wonderful time and felt the big love. Despite the suffering with cancer that Kory experienced throughout most of the kids lives, and the struggle it was for Kate to support her husband, they both refused to deny their children the joys of childhood. Summer vacations to Florida, annual stops at Graceland, Christmas parties and school programs - all the typical family fun was had by this loving family. After the passing of Kory, Kate continued to make awesome memories with her children, once on a trip to Legoland in California. The other on a special trip with Grandpa Rick and Great-Grandpa Forrest to Branson.

Jonathan will be remembered for superhero costumes, Monstero concerts, lego constructions and video gaming. Zoe was a field hockey player since she was 3 years old, a trampoline expert and crafter. As big brother and little sis, they shared a big-love bond that encouraged and sustained each other through the fun times and the tough times. Truly the world is a better place because of the Big Love legacy of the Kasten family. Honor their lives by following their example: love family, love friends - Big Love to All!
