Eulogy for Diana Louise Moberg, January 13, 2021
Today we have gathered to celebrate the life of Diana Louise Moberg. Born May 13, 1946, she passed quietly into the night on January 4th, 2021 at the age of 74. She leaves behind her three children: Sandra Lee Moberg; Bernadette Lorraine Moberg, and Darcy Lloyd Moberg as well as her granddaughter Avery Lauren Shupac and Darcy’s wife Teresa Moberg. One brother & sister, Valerie Irwin and Blaine Chrysler, 5 nieces and nephews and many cousins. Pre-deceased by her husband Lloyd Arthur Moberg, mother Dorothia Chrysler and stepfather Cory Chrysler.
To sum up Diana in a few words I use a quote from her brother Blaine “Diana had a Heart of Gold”. She was constantly putting other people’s needs above her own and would do anything she could for her children and the granddaughter she loved so much. Over the years she took in many people who needed a place to stay, she would not turn anyone away. In fact she raised her nephew Bruce Bauder from the time he was 12 until 18 and her niece Tracy Bauder from the age of 15 to 18. She had only a handful of lifelong friends but she was exceptionally loyal to those around her. A quiet person, she did spend a great deal of time alone though. She spent the last 20 years of her life living with her daughter Sandra.
Mom loved two things – her dogs and movies. Over the years she owned eight dogs, spoiling each and every one of them (no thin dogs here). Cats were okay. She loved to watch action, thriller, horror and drama movies, no chick flicks for mom.
Mom was a survivor, she had a hard life from start to finish. As a child she was often bounced around to her various aunts and uncles as her mother Dorothy had no means to look after her herself. Dorothy left her first husband when mom was 6 and remarried Cory Chrysler (the only man mom considered her father), when Diana was 13. At 19 Diana was a single mother, which was greatly frowned upon in 1965. But mom was determined to keep and raiser her daughter no matter what. Her keeping me is something I’ve always been grateful for.
In 1968 Diana married Lloyd Moberg and had two more children. Diana worked hard her whole life from her days in an ice cream factory when she was 16 until she retired at 67 from Wal-Mart. There was little time in her life when she was not working.
All said we are proud to have called Diana Moberg our mother; she was a caring, hard working and loving soul and we will all miss her dearly.
