Betty H. Moser, 73, completed her work here on Saturday, Feb. 27, 2016, after trying to treat stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. She was surrounded by her family when God wrapped her in His arms and took her home. A life celebration will take place at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 19, at the New Living Church, 3072 Lockwood Drive in Lakeside.
She was born Jan. 20, 1943, in Macon, Ga., to William and Willie Mae Happoldt.
She met her husband, Ronald, and they were married on July 12, 1964, in Waynesboro, Pa., and established their home in Warner Robins, Ga. In January 1966 her husband accepted a position with the U.S. government and they moved to California.
They lived in Calixico, Oceanside and San Ramon, Calif., until they moved to Tucson, where Betty received a degree in Christian theology and earned a real estate license. In 1992 they moved to Eureka, Calif., where she received her California real estate license and later attained her California broker’s license. In 1966 they moved to Phoenix, and in 1999 they moved to the Snowflake area, where she worked for Integrity Realty. She later received her broker’s license, and later when the real estate market suffered a downward turn, she became a certified mobile notary public and worked for many loan companies in the completion of loan documents. She signed loans for many people on the mountain and made many friends. She worked at that occupation until one month before she passed.
Betty was not one to just sit around. She was always learning about and researching various subjects of interest to her. She loved people and would take the time to talk to or help anyone she met. She started each day in prayer and reading the Bible, believing that faith comes from intimacy with the Lord and seeking His face. Psalm 91:1 and 2: “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God; in Him I will trust.” She enjoyed teaching at her church and sharing the love of God.
Survivors include her husband, Ronald of Snowflake; two daughters, Jantzen Moser of Phoenix and Angela Yarbrough of Modesto, Calif.; and her sister, Patti Ballone, and brothers, Billy Happoldt (Lola) and Grady Rhey, all of Macon.
In lieu of flowers or donations, Betty would want you to offer an unexpected act of kindness to someone in need.
Silver Creek Mortuary of Taylor was in charge of the arrangements.
