Irma Lorraine Moshier
Nov 11, 1918 – Feb 21, 2015
Irma Moshier, age 96, departed this physical world February 21, 2015 into heaven. Irma was born November 11, 1918 in Baker, Oregon. She was predeceased by her husband, Arthur Moshier Sr in 1974. They were married for 26 Years.
She was a homemaker most of her life. As she said a week before she died “Someone had to stay home and take care of my four children.” Irma enjoyed animals, her favorite being cats. She fell off a horse when she was young and petted all the dogs in the assisted living community where she recently lived. She enjoyed exercising and walking (others had a hard time keeping up with her fast pace). She and Arthur Sr enjoyed car road trips to visit relatives and excursions across the country discovering the natural beauty of the National Parks and historic sites. In her younger years she enjoyed dancing; she met Arthur Sr. at a dance in downtown Seattle. She enjoyed taking ferryboat rides in Seattle until she had too difficulty walking. In the community she donated blood to the blood bank for many years and walked door to door collecting money for March of Dimes as she never drove a car. She wrote many letters and sent cards to family and friends. She lived in SeaTac, Burien, Kent and the last 9 years in Federal Way, Washington.
Irma is survived by her children Donna Colwell of Kent, WA, Robert Haverwold of Des Moines, WA, Arthur Moshier Jr. (Linda) of Puyallup, WA and Carol Moshier of Fife, WA. She had two grandchildren Justin Heath (Laura) of Fort Erie, Canada and Angela Marvel (Chris) of Fife, WA as well as two great grandchildren Brett Marvel and Alex Marvel.
No services are planned. In lieu of flowers, Irma would have preferred if you made a donation to your favorite charity. Irma will be buried in Washington Memorial Cemetery in SeaTac, Washington, next to her husband, Arthur Moshier Sr.
