Grace Louise Moses, 96

Grace Louise (Wiseman) Moses, 96, died Thursday, March 6, at Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

Grace was born July 30, 1911, in Pine City, Minn., to Dr. Robert Wiseman and Mrs. Mary Louise Wiseman (Davis), the last of three children.

She attended Pine City High School and fell in love with Wadia "Bill" Moses from Rush City High. They were married on July 27, 1931, in the Presbyterian Church in Pine City, Minn.

In 1934, after the birth of their first daughter, the family moved to Frederic, where their other three children were born.

Grace worked in the Stokley Canning Factory during World War II and at the office of Frederic Independent Telephone Company in the 1960s.

She was a loving mother, great homemaker and fabulous cook and baker. (Her family's favorite dessert was her delicious apple crisp.) Grace was also very active in St. Luke's Methodist Church.

During retirement, Grace and Bill spent many enjoyable years traveling with their Air Stream trailer to interesting places. For 20 years they spent winters in Lake Wales, Fla., and summers in Wisconsin.

In 1995 they sold their house in Frederic and moved into WinterGreen Retirement Community in Hudson.

Grace was preceded in death by husband, Wadia Moses; siblings, George Wiseman and Ruth Shuey; and grandchildren, Perry Moses and Niels Haugen.

She is survived by her children, Mary Grace Sjolander, Margaret Ruth Summerfield, both residents of San Antonio, Texas; Donald Wadia Moses of Eagan, Minn.; and Judith Ann Moses of Downing; 14 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.

Services were held March 10 at St. Luke's Methodist Church, Frederic.
