Jean Lucille Moseley passed away peacefully August 13, 2013 at the age of 92 in the home of Dean and Cindy Hatch, her daughter and caregiver since July, 2009.
Jean was born December 7, 1920 in Yreka, California to Earl Bernard and Thelma Marceline (Knox) Iunker, descendants of early gold-rush pioneers.
Jean was employed at her local newspaper, The Alameda Times Star, where she met her husband, Charles Moseley, also known as Tim, who was a newspaper printer. Jean and Tim were married on June 22, 1941. On December 7, of that same year, while celebrating her birthday, Pearl Harbor was attacked. Jean's husband served in the Army during World War II building and repairing bridges across France and Germany.
After the war, they had two daughters whom they raised in Oakland, California. Jean enjoyed serving many others and volunteered as a PTA President, a Camp Fire Girls Leader, and later in life with Meals on Wheels and at an elementary school library. After her children were grown, Jean was employed as an attendance clerk at various schools in the local district. Her hobbies included gardening, sewing, and hand work, leaving each of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren handmade, sequined Christmas stocking which will be cherished for years to come.
After her husband passed away in 2000, Jean's health declined making it necessary to move to Morgan, Utah to live with her daughter, Cindy. Jean enjoyed attending the Morgan 9th Ward of the LDS Church. The Relief Society embraced her as one of their own, even though she was not a member, by assigning Jean her own visiting teachers. The family would like to express their love and appreciation for Lorraine Heiner and Maisie Whitaker for serving and befriending her throughout the years in Morgan. She always looked forward to their monthly visits. Jean enjoyed helping to make various projects for LDS Humanitarian Aid such as school bags, fleece blankets, and fabric balls a�" projects she was able to accomplish with very limited eyesight.
