SHIRLEY MOSER On Thursday, March 16, 2017, Heaven received a beautiful angel. Shirley Moser joined her two brothers, sister and parents, to watch over us all. Shirley will be lovingly remembered by her husband Mel Moser; her daughter Tracy Kramble (Mainland); son-in-law Brad Kramble; grandsons, Bryson and Brockton; and stepdaughter Tracey Moser (Randy), along with numerous nieces and nephews. Shirley grew up in Winnipeg, within Elmwood. She attended Miles Mac Collegiate. She made many lifelong friends there and continued those friendships until her last days. Shirley worked for Modern Building Cleaning for over 38 years, where she was an office manager. She also was the neighbourhood Avon lady for more than 40 years. Everyone knew who Shirley was. Mom had a passion for music, art and animals - specifically cats. Her beloved Joey was her world. She was an amazing musician. She could pick up any instrument and within a few moments play it. She would hear a song she loved, fiddle around on the piano or guitar and within moments, would be playing the melody. She was a hit at social gatherings and everyone would ask her to bring her guitar. Mom did not have an easy life. She lost her brothers, (Ron and Wayne), mother (Hazel) and sister (Valerie), all very tragically and before their time. She was a single mom in a time where there were very few. With all the hardships in her life, she rose above it all with a brave face and tried to keep a positive outlook, especially where Tracy was concerned. Tracy was her pride and joy. For many years it was just the two of them and that was all Shirley needed. She was an amazing mother and although had very limited means, Tracy never went without. Shirley was always proud of Tracy's accomplishments. She beamed when Tracy told her she would be a Grandma. Bryson and Brock were everything to Shirley, she loved being a Grandma. She was a single mom for many years until she met and married the love of her life, Mel. Together they had many adventures. Whether it was travelling east to visit Mel's family, West to visit Mom's family or down south to visit their many friends in Texas, Mom and Mel had fun. She loved visiting her many nieces and nephews, and enjoyed going on the road with their camper trailer to do so. Many years ago Mom was diagnosed with Dementia. This disease had slowly robbed her of life as she and her family knew it. She was placed at the St. Boniface Hospital where she stayed over the last four months. She passed peacefully with Tracy by her side. We are all heartbroken with losing her, however know she is now at peace within. A Celebration of Life will take place on Friday, March 24, 11:00 a.m. at E. J. Coutu., 680 Archibald St., in Winnipeg. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Shirley's memory to Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, Variety of Manitoba - the Children's Charity or the Winnipeg Humane Society.
