Judith (Judy) Katherine Moeser passed peacefully into her Lords presence at her home in Mesa, Arizona, on November 20, 2018. She was surrounded by her family. Judy was born on May 15, 1928, to Kristoffer and Annette Imset in Minneapolis, MN.
On March 3, 1951, she married Maurice Moeser (Moe) and they started their life together in Minnesota. They came to Arizona in 1964, settling in Mesa.
Judy loved her family and friends. She is remembered as a gifted shopper with a keen eye for bargains and always knew what her family needed. She enjoyed doing various crafts and created ceramic items and Christmas ornaments which are still cherished by the family today. Moe and Judy spent many years square dancing with the Cowbells and Cowpokes on Saturday nights and even danced in the Fiesta Bowl Parade in 1984. Traveling was always on their calendar. Through the years she visited the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Hawaii, Norway, and France with Moe and family. In later years, Moe and Judy traveled the United States by car. She was a committed Lutheran who spent many hours with her Joy Circle church friends and was a member of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church for over 50 years.
Judy is survived by son Bruce (Sherry) Moeser of Apache Junction, AZ, son Brian (Linda) Moeser of Mesa, AZ; granddaughter Heather Moeser, grandson Kristopher Gardner (Angie), grandson Adam (Lauryn), and grandson Daniel (Brandi), Sarah Fischer (Ben) and 11 great-grandchildren.
