Mitzi’s Obituary Marguerite Raymunda “Mitzi” (Mason) Moesch, of Shawano, passed away peacefully at home, in the care of her family, in an early morning hour of December 10, 2022. Mom was born and raised in Shawano, the youngest child of Walter and Gabrielle Mason. She attended Sacred Heart Catholic School and graduated from Shawano High School. Mom married her childhood sweetheart, Duane “Duke” Moesch, and they raised their family across the street from where she grew up. After 57 years of marriage, Dad preceded Mom in death on September 25, 2016. Mom’s life could never be condensed into a few short paragraphs. Those who remember the young Mitzi Mason will also recall her riding a horse. Most other kids, in those days, parked their bicycle in the bike-rack in front of Dehn’s ….Mom tied her horse there. Horses were a lifetime love of Mom’s. Long after her horse-riding days were through, her attention was always drawn to these beautiful creatures. Mom was a passionate grower and gardener. She and Dad nurtured large vegetable gardens every summer. There was nearly nothing that Mom couldn’t make thrive and grow beautifully. She worked for decades in the family flower business, honing her skills as a gifted florist. She later partnered with her best friend and creative instigator, Dorothy Hofman, opening their own flower shop. Our mother spoke through her artistic abilities. She leaves behind countless chapters and volumes of beautiful stories carved out of walnut, butternut, oak, ash, maple and mahogany. Mom felted wool into gorgeous bouquets of flowers. She lovingly stitched colorful threads into fabric art. Mom wove the word of God into many of her works. These words helped sustain her and gave her the courage she needed in her last few years. Mom was always active and set a high standard for herself, in her professional life, in her creative pursuits, and in retirement. After she and Dorothy closed their shop (but never their friendship), Mom volunteered at Bonduel Elementary School, helping along children who affectionately called her Grandma Mitzi. When she saw the need, she collected funds for brand new winter coats for children at Bonduel Elementary School and Shawano Middle school. She was involved in many volunteer activities at Zion Lutheran Church where she thrived, developing deep faith-based friendships among people who shared her commitment to service. Mom, with the help of many others, made an idea become reality in the “Wee Care” Program at Zion Lutheran Church. This program helps provide the basic necessities to many school children in our area. Mom loved and treasured her many great friends at Zion. They went above and beyond, bringing our mom smiles, laughs and a shoulder to cry on. The visits, phone calls, texts and cards brought sunshine and happiness to Mom. For that we are all thankful. Mom is survived by her children, Maria Moesch, Diane (Dennis Hein) Moesch, Joe (Mary) Moesch, Peter (Mikki) Moesch and daughter-in-law, Julie Moesch. Mom always counted her kid’s friends as her own children. Mom is also survived by her grandchildren Margarita Moesch, Amanda and Michael Moesch, Neil (Traci) Hutchcraft, Chris (Kailee) Hutchcraft, Gabriel (Cheyenne) Hein, Tonia Hein, Cassie (Guy) Scheffel, Chad (Jess) Moesch, Chelsea (Kyle) Giesen, Mason (Frankie) Moesch and Isaiah (Laura Arens) Moesch; as well as 21 great-grandchildren. Mom is also survived by a sister, Charlotte Hofman, and brother, Wally (Bonnie) Mason, a brother-in-law Jase (Nan) Moesch, and numerous nephews, nieces, other relatives and many friends. Mom was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, “Duke Sr.”; her granddaughter, Camille J. Moesch; her son, Duane “Duke” Moesch, Jr.; her sisters Suzanne Klose and Joanne Vanden Avond; her very special nephew, Buck Hofman; as well as numerous brothers- and sisters-in-law. Funeral services will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, January 14, 2023 at Zion Lutheran Church in Shawano with Rev. Scott Ludford officiating. Visitation will be at the church from 9:00am until the time of service. There will be a private family burial in the spring. The family requests that any monetary gifts be made to Zion Lutheran Church “Wee Care” Program. We would also like to thank Mom’s Zion Lutheran Church family for all the love and support given to Mom throughout her illness. A special and grateful thank you to Scott Glysch for bringing the word of God, Holy Communion, and deep comfort to Mom. Your love, encouragement and confidence will forever be appreciated. Read More
