Louella M. Moyer, 94, of 117 Lovers Lane, Kersey, passed away Wednesday, December 21, 2022, at the Elk Haven Nursing Home, after a lengthy illness.

She was born May 18, 1928, in Dagus Mines, daughter of the late Swan Swanson and Zona Fox  Swanson Fredrickson.  Louella was a lifelong resident of the area, a graduate of Kersey High School, Class of 1946, and a graduate of the DuBois Business College with a degree in Accounting.  She was an employee of the former Andrew Kaul Memorial Hospital where she retired in 1991.

On September 28, 1946 in the First Lutheran Church in Ridgway, Louella married Jesse B. Moyer, who preceded her in death in 1986.

She is survived by her daughters: Janna Pollino and her husband Ray and Jocelyn Breindel and her husband Donald, both of Kersey; three sons: Gary R. Moyer and his wife Shar Lou; Jesse R. Moyer and his wife Patricia; and Jason S.

In addition to her husband and parents, Louella was preceded in death by her brother, Swan Swanson, Jr.  She was the last member of her immediate family.

Louella was a committed member of the Maria Lutheran Church where she held various positions and volunteered her time.  She was a member of the choir, council, cemetery committee, social ministry, LCW, and treasurer.  She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and was on the planning committee for the Fox Twp. Board of Supervisors.  She loved her community where she would volunteer her time for Meals on Wheels at the Fox Twp. Senior Center, the Guardian Angel Center, and as a Cub Scout Den Mother.  She enjoyed gardening, camping, traveling, and reading.  There was nothing more important to her than spending time with her loving family especially her grandchildren.

  1. Jesse and Patty,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family at this time.

  2. So many memories with Louella. She had a kind heart and a feisty spirit which I loved. She will be missed but never forgotten.

  3. So sorry for your loss. She was a special lady. Always enjoyed visiting with her. She and my mother always made us kids go blueberry (huckleberry) picking. I treasure those days. A lot of wonderful memories. Y’all are in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. I grew up attending Maria Lutheran Church, singing (and giggling) in the choir with Louella. After I moved away from Maria, Louella remained my constant contact with Maria as she served on many church committees for many years. To say Louella was a spunkey lady is almost an understatement! I was blessed to call her my friend. There’s no doubt the world is a better place because she was in it. My caring loving prayers go out to all of her family and friends that happy memories bring you comfort and peace during this sad time. Fondly, Karen Olson Shirey

  5. She was such a kind soul and I miss her dearly! My deepest sympathies go out to her family 💕

  6. Dear Jocelyn, please accept out deepest heartfelt sympathies. I remember your from from my time working at the hospital.
    The family of Helen Mahoney, Ken and Arline

  7. I first met Loulla when my family and I joined Maria Lutheran church. She was right there to welcome us and made us feel at home. I also had the pleasure of serving with her on church council. She definitely shared her love for her church family! Luella was a spunkey lady to say the least. Rest in peace, you will be missed!

  8. Jesse, Patty, and family,
    We think of you often even though we don’t see you. So sorry to read that your Mother has passed away. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. May God give you peace and comfort as you mourn,

  9. Louella was a co-worker many years ago. She was always willing to help you and lend a listening ear. Rest In Peace, Louella.

  10. Gary and Jesse and family you have my condolences at the loss of your mother.
