Obituary for Evelyn Marie Moss

Worthington, MN

      Evelyn Moss, age 92, passed away on Wednesday, May 20, 2015, at the Maple Lawn Nursing Home in Fulda, MN.

      Evelyn Marie Klostergaard was born on her dad’s birthday, September 22, 1922, to Martin and Hazel (Peterson) Klostergaard in Beresford, SD. She attended country school and graduated from Beresford High School. Evelyn went on to earn her degree from Springfield State Teacher’s College in Springfield, SD. After graduation, Evelyn taught grades 1 through 8 in a one-room schoolhouse in rural Beresford, for eight years.

      Evelyn was united in marriage to Richard Moss on December 11, 1949 at Nazareth Lutheran Church in Beresford. After their marriage, the couple made their home on the Moss family farm in Dewald Township near Reading, MN for 30 years. Richard and Evelyn were members of the Emmanuel United Methodist Church in Worthington, MN. They were the parents of three children, Connie, Craig and Pamela. Evelyn was a substitute teacher and later a teacher’s aide in Reading and Worthington school districts for 25 years. When they retired they moved to Worthington, MN. During retirement Evelyn belonged to many card groups playing Pinochle, 500 and Bridge. Playing Scrabble was the highlight of her week on Friday mornings. She also enjoyed doing the cryptoquote and watching Wheel of Fortune. Evelyn enjoyed going for car rides around the lake, baking and candy making. Her specialties were: angel food cake, cut out sugar cookies, dried beef ball, and making the perfect divinity. She especially loved spending time visiting on the telephone and being with her friends, but her greatest joy was her family and hearing the heartfelt words, “Love you” and her reply would be “Love you more”. With declining health, Evelyn became a resident of Maple Lawn Nursing Home on July 15, 2014.

      Evelyn was a wonderful, loving and caring mother. She is survived by two daughters: Connie (Bob) Haberman, Fulda, MN; Pam (Greg) Grussing, Lakefield, MN; five grandchildren: Tim (Amanda) Haberman, Coon Rapids, MN; Eric Grussing, Minneapolis, MN; Brooke Grussing, Columbia, SC; Paige Grussing, Sioux Falls, SD; and Ashley Grussing, Sioux Falls, SD; sisters-in-law, Eleanor Klostergaard and Ruth Welch; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

      Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Richard on February 7, 1999, son, Craig and brothers, Delmer, Clinton and James Klostergaard.

      Funeral services will be held on Friday, May 22, 2015, at 2:00 p.m., at the First United Methodist Church in Worthington, MN, with Rev. Dr. Daren Flinck officiating. Burial will be in the Worthington Memorial Gardens Cemetery.

      Visitation will be held on Friday, May 22, 2015, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., at the First United Methodist Church in Worthington.

      Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
