Obituary for Elizabeth "Betty" Moes

Elizabeth J. “Betty” Burns Moes, 90, of Fostoria, completed her journey here on earth and entered her heavenly home on Sunday, February 18, 2018 while at Good Shepherd Home, Fostoria, surrounded by her family. She was born on January 7, 1928 in Seneca County to the late Frank and Agnes (Weinandy) Burns.
She married Edward J. Moes on April 10, 1948, and he preceded her in death on March 10, 1984. She is survived by her children, Steven (Jane) Moes, Robert (Nancy) Moes, and Susan Carrel, all of Fostoria, Timothy Moes, of Bryan, Mary “Betsy” (Jeffrey) Faeth, Deborah (Doug) Scudder, and Lisa Rutter of Fostoria and Lori (Chris) Fournier, of Van Buren; 21 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren; siblings, Marjorie A. Brentlinger, of Wapakoneta, Phyllis J. (Joe) Hulderman, of Fostoria, Donna R. Altwies, of Findlay, and James R. (Carol) Burns, of Fostoria. She was also preceded in death by a son-in-law, Rickerd Carrel, three sisters, Mary Lou Cool, Theresa Karns, and Eileen Lucius, and one brother, Robert Burns.
Betty was 1945 Hopewell High School graduate. She was a member of St Wendelin Catholic Church and its Rosary Altar Society and Circle of Mercy. She was a devout Catholic and was a prayer warrior for others.
Betty was co-owner of Moes Body Shop, alongside her husband Eddie, and was a bookkeeper for the business. She later became a successful real estate agent for Goddard & Murphy Company. She was an accomplished seamstress and quilter, winning several awards for her quilts, which she made for each of her children. She made and donated over 500 caps, also known as “Betty’s Bonnets”, for cancer patients. She was an avid tennis player, as well as a huge fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers and The Ohio State Buckeyes. She loved to play Bridge, Euchre and BINGO, and taught many of her friends at Good Shepherd Home to play Euchre.
Betty was a wonderful mother not only to her children, but to many others as well. She loved being with her grandchildren and attending their sporting events, and was known for being a tremendous cook, making pies and homemade noodles, which her grandchildren especially loved.
Visitation will be from 2-8 pm on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at HOENING & SON FUNERAL HOME, 133 W. Tiffin St., Fostoria, where a Rosary will be prayed at 7:30 pm.
