December 2, 1931 - November 8, 2016
Converse, Texas | Age 84
Jeannette C. Moffitt, age 84, passed away November 8, 2016 in Converse, Texas. She was born December 2, 1931, in Wright County, Iowa to William and Lorena Hosselton.
Jeannette enjoyed traveling, reading, spending time with friends and singing with several groups, including many years with the Mission Bells. She was a member of Coker United Methodist Church for many years and loved singing with the choir, performing in plays and various other church activities such as the Sunday School Class and Questors.
She was preceded in death by her parents; two brothers, William Hosselton, Jr. and Galen Hosselton; and sisters, Vivian Trausch, Margaret Dahlke and Joyce Olson. Jeannette's husband, Ralph H. "Ottie" Moffitt passed away soon after on November 20, 2016.
Jeannette is survived by her daughter, Deb England and husband Kit; sister, Jacky Rothbard and husband Gary; stepsons, Mike Moffitt and wife Jerry, Steve Moffitt, Jim Moffitt and wife Kim; grandson, Blake Moffitt and wife Courtney; great-grandchildren, Noah and Madison; and a fantastic group of friends.
Jeannette and Ralph had one of those lovely stories. They went to High School together in Eagle Grove, IA. Even though they did not date at that time, they were very good friends. Then, when Jeannette married her first husband, Jean Cammack, both Jean and Ottie were stationed in California and Hawaii together. Therefore, Jean, Jeannette, and Ottie were very close and hung out together frequently. After their discharge from the Navy and return to the states, Ottie went to Oklahoma and Jean and Jeannette went to Kansas. Jeannette and Ottie would not see each other until many, many years later at a Class Reunion in Iowa. By then, they both had been divorced for many years, and they started a long-distance relationship. Eventually, Ottie moved to San Antonio, they got married in 1993, and they began their life of fun, family and travel. They made a very cute couple!
