Marion Elizabeth Moses, age 84, of Garnavillo, IA, died Saturday, January 2, 2021, at MercyOne Elkader Medical Center after a courageous battle with Glioblastoma (Brain Cancer). She was born on December 25, 1936, the daughter of Leander (Tommy) and Anna (Berns) Stroschein.
Marion received her education and graduated from the St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Garnavillo. On September 5, 1957, Marion was united in marriage with Darwin Moses at St. Joseph’s Church in Garnavillo. Together the couple owned and operated the Kist Bottling Company where Marion was known as the Pop Lady. Marion also worked as a line server at the casino in Marquette.
Marion was compassionately religious in her faith. She was a long time member of the St. Joseph Rosary Society. She enjoyed her flowers, playing cards, old country music, dancing, canning tomatoes and freezing sweet corn (she could cut corn off the cob like a machine). Marion had a great deal of spunk. She was a snazzy dresser, had a heart of gold and a smile that would bring happiness to everyone she met. She loved spending time with her family and friends and was a devoted mother, grandmother & great grandmother.
Marion was received by her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ leaving behind her 3 children, Rick (Brenda) Moses of Garnavillo, Ann Schmidt of Farmersburg & Bob Moses of McGregor; 7 grandchildren, Jeremy (Courtney) Moses of Center Point, Jill (Justin) Tangeman of Bellevue, NE, Molly Moses of Cedar Rapids, Ethan Moses of Cedar Rapids, Elliott Moses West Des Moines, Kyle Schmidt of Farmersburg & Chris (Kayla) Schmidt of Farmersburg; 7 great grandchildren and one due in July.
