MOSER LaVerne Evelyn
MOSER, LaVerne Evelyn April 1933 - August 2016 LaVerne Passed away at Turlock Nursing and Rehabilitation Center after a long illness. LaVerne was born in 1933 in San Pedro, Calif. to Vern and Martha (Huff) Cyr. She spent her early years growing up in Wilsona, where she and Don Moser became boyfriend and girlfriend in the 7th grade. She graduated from Wilsona School in 1946 and from Antelope Valley High School in 1950. LaVerne and Don were married in 1952. They then moved to West Palm Beach, Fla., where Don served in the US Air Force. Upon returning to the Antelope Valley, LaVerne was a stay-at-home mom until her children were in school. She then worked for 25 years as a secretary and switchboard operator in the Antelope Valley Schools. She was a member of Quartz Hill Christian Church. It was there that she learned to love the worship hymns that she was still singing late in her illness. LaVerne was an avid spinner and enjoyed doing demonstrations at the Antelope Valley Fair. For many years she spun her own wool for her knitting and crocheting projects. LaVerne never missed a rehearsal, event, practice, or performance for her children's activities. Once retired, LaVerne enjoyed ushering for The Lancaster Performing Arts Center. She also looked forward to long daily walks with friends, logging many miles in Quartz Hill. In 2001, LaVerne was preceded in death by her husband Don, after 49 years of marriage. She then moved to Turlock in 2002. LaVerne is survived by her three children: Lori Rorabaugh of Caldwell, Idaho; David (Kathy) Moser of Turlock, Calif.; and Teri (Don) Kanallakan of Morro Bay, Calif.; by seven handsome grandsons: Michael Rorabaugh, Dean, Danny, Joey, and Bobby Moser, and Adam and Tim Kanallakan; and one beloved granddaughter: Whitney (Rorabaugh) Morgan. LaVerne is also survived by 13 great-grandchildren. A graveside service is planned for Lancaster Cemetery, 111 E. Lancaster Blvd in Lancaster on Saturday, September 3, 2016 at 10:00 am.
