Maysel Eileen Moser, age 87, of Dover, Ohio went home to be with the Lord on Monday, April 5, 2021, following a short non-Covid related illness.
Maysel was born in Morgantown, West Virginia to Reverend Cledith Dalton Hefner and Minerva Belle (Arnold) Hefner on October 21, 1933.
She married the late Galen E. Moser on August 7, 1950. They spent over fifty years together until his death on February 27, 2002.
She was preceded in death by her parents (Cledith and Minerva) and stepmother, Mildred. Maysel was also predeceased by her siblings; Cledith Jr., Carrollton, Frank, David, Joseph, Milton, Mary Lou, and Adele.
She is survived by her sister, Anna Hefner of Louisville, Ohio; her brother, Jonathan Hefner of Hudson, Wisconsin as well as her children; James (Bonnie) Moser of Dover, Randall (Vera) Moser of Navarre, Daniel (Cheri) Moser of Ft. Myers, Florida, Gaye (Steve) Rogers of Westerville, and Judy (Peter) Colman of Chicago; thirteen grandchildren, and thirty-three great grandchildren. She also leaves behind many nieces and nephews and their extended families-having a huge impact on many of their lives.
Maysel was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who gave her all to her family. We will never be able to fill the space left behind by her. Our family was blessed to have her as the matriarch of the family. She was a counselor and friend to many. She was loved by all who knew her. Her door was always open. If you knew her, chances were that she prayed for you (oftentimes without your knowledge.) She never spoke of an unkind world. A wonderful woman of God!
Maysel was an active member of the Dover Alliance Church where over the years she taught Sunday School, directed and sang in the choir, and played the piano/organ. She was also a wonderful cook and baker (her chocolate sheet cake was a favorite of all), seamstress, gardener, and educator of faith.
Visitation will be held on Friday, April 9, 2021 at the Dover Alliance Church, 228 E. 3rd St., Dover, Ohio from 10:00 am until noon with a service immediately following. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the church or the Community Hospice Truman House, 716 Commercial Ave, SW, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663. Burial will take place at Dover Burial Park. The Toland-Herzig Funeral Home & Crematory in Dover is handling the arrangements.
