Carolyn Kay (Matthews) Moser
Carolyn Kay (Matthews) Moser was born March 26, 1938, in Delaware. On Friday (June 22, 2012) she went to her eternal home in Heaven.
She was first married to Robert E. Smith of Waldo and they had two daughters together, Karen Ann and Robyn Lynne. In 1998 she married George E. Moser of Prospect. Carolyn was a homemaker for many years and also worked at J.C. Penney. In 1972, she began a 21-year career with General Telephone Company of Ohio. She retired in 1993 to help care for her two granddaughters, Brittini and Erinn Littell. In the 1980s, Carolyn turned her life over to Christ. From that point until the end of her life on Earth, she lived a Christ-centered life. She was active in her church, Saint Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church of Waldo. She was a Sunday school teacher for many years, held offices on the Church Council and took to the pulpit to deliver the Sunday sermon. She was a member and past president of the Prospect Senior Center and the Waldo Mother’s Club. If someone was in need, no project was too large or too small for her to tackle. At God’s urging, she and her husband, George, once took on the renovation of a complete home that was in desperate need of repair. With God’s help and many volunteers, the project was completed. Every fall she brought school supplies for local children and children overseas. Each Christmas, she purchased shoes, books, socks and underwear for the Christmas Clearinghouse in Marion. When Carolyn was 72 years old, she became a hospice volunteer. Carolyn had a talent for painting and writing. She wrote numerous poems and short stories. Her paintings graced the walls of her home. Carolyn was devoted to her two granddaughters and delighted in helping them whenever she could.
Carolyn is survived by her devoted husband, George E. Moser; daughters, Karen Smith of Prospect and Robyn (Jeff) Littell of Prospect; granddaughters, Brittini (Justin) Peterson and Erinn Littell, Ashlee (Chris) Drumm and Keri Littell; a stepson, Paul (Teri) Moser of Hubbard; step-grandchildren, David, Daniel and Melissa Moser; great-grandchildren, Dylan, Madalyn, Mason Drumm and Preslee, Cashton Lowe; and nieces and nephews.
