Gloria Moser Obituary

Gloria Blanche Dallap Moser, born Sept. 26, 1936, in Springdale lived a beautiful, dignified life. She passed away unexpectedly Friday, Nov. 3, 2023. Married to Oakley E. Moser Jr. for 54 years, they raised six children; Tracy (Robert) Gray, of Mt. Washington, Oakley E. (Susan) Moser III, of Tomah Wis., Dianne (Keith) Reger, of Irwin, Jay (Barbara) Moser, of Squirrel Hill, Gerald (Karen) Moser, of Verona, and Erin (Frank) Means, of Greenwood, Mo. Together, they taught their children to live with integrity, compassion and loyalty and to pursue their dreams with confidence. Gloria is survived by her beloved sister, Rosemary (Conrad) Gates. Gloria lit up any room she entered; she could strike up a conversation with anyone. She was a joyful presence, fiercely independent and stubborn and kind, generous and warm. An avid reader with an incredible vocabulary, Gloria was extremely proud that all six of her children graduated from college. She enjoyed her 30 years of work as an administrative assistant at Citizens General Hospital in the anesthesia department. Above all, she loved her family and her home. Her children and their families gathered there for holidays, and birthdays or to watch the Penguins and Steelers. She would make sure the candy dish was full, the popcorn was ready and the Texas Sheet Cake was warm. As her family grew, Gloria welcomed 12 grandchildren: Richard (Mary) Moser, Oakley (Jenna) Moser IV, Derek (Allison) Moser, Drew Reger, Taylor (Curt) Gray, Joshua Moser, Cory (Emily) Reger, Jake Means, Alexis Gray, Logan Means, Jenna Moser and Vaun Moser. She also had three great-grandchildren: Jalen Marshall, Jonah Marshall and Parker Panick. Her generosity of spirit towards her family was unmatched. She worried about them, rooted for them, protected them and always loved them. Gloria also loved living, she took exceptional pleasure in Neil Diamond, walking, The Guiding Light, Johnny Mathis, dressing sharp for church, Mark Wahlberg, white Keds, the book Exodus, Evgeni Malkin, caramel macchiatos, Penn State, a good blanket, funny stories, crossword puzzles, a warm house, dancing and family celebrations. She will be desperately missed by all those that she's left behind. Our hearts are broken by this unexpected loss. She was one of a kind and to be loved by her was to be truly blessed. The opportunity to pay respects will be at 9:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 13, 2023, at St Margaret Mary Church, Lower Burrell. A Christian Mass of Burial will immediately follow at 10 a.m. Interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Westmoreland County Food Bank or the Animal Protectors of Allegheny Valley.
