Mary E (Moose) Nace, age 92 of Loysville, left her Earthly home surrounded by her loving family to join her Heavenly Father on June 13, 2023. Born at home on May 13, 1931 to the late William S and Grace E (Shuman) Moose of Andersonburg, she was a devoted wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her loving husband of 46 years, John Nace, Jr., who died in 1996; her grandson, Rodney Nace, who died in 2017; and her brother, William “Billy” C Moose, who died in 2011.
Mary was loved by her family and the community surrounding Landisburg. She will be sorely missed. She is survived by three children: Connie E (Charles C) Adair of Loysville, Carl E (Mitzi M) Nace and Marvin J (Connie M) Nace, both of Landisburg; seven grandchildren: Denise (Scott) Sheriff of Landisburg, Mark Adair, and his companion Jennifer Melhorn, of Loysville, Rachel (Luther) Sweger of Landisburg, Darren (Amber) Adair of Landisburg, Jason (Jamie) Nace of Landisburg, Ryan (Nicole) Nace of New Bloomfield, and Renee (Matthew) Stacknick of Landisburg; 18 great grandchildren; and two siblings: Donna J Myers of Newville, and Larry E (Kathy) Moose of Blain.
In addition to raising a family, running a household, and farming with her husband in Spring Township, Mary was an active community member. Mary was a member at Mt Zion Free Lutheran Church in Landisburg, where she sang in the choir and was an integral part of the Quilting Group, Friendship Circle, and Bible Study. She last sang with the Christmas Combined Church Choir in December 2022 as the oldest member of the choir. She was also a member of the Purple Plumes (a local chapter of the internationally renowned Red Hat Society), Landisburg Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary and Fire Company, and Landisburg Ambulance Club. She also volunteered at Perry Village and worked at Campbell’s Store and in-home care for various families.
Described by her family as caring, loving, selfless, and faithful, Mary loved to grow violets, spend hours putting together jigsaw puzzles, crocheting doilies, pillows, and afghans, and baking. She once baked a black walnut cake for a benefit auction that brought $300, and she earned a blue ribbon for her crocheted pillow at the Perry County Fair. She also was in great demand for her mending skills.
Mary’s viewing will be held Saturday, June 17 from 9 to 11 AM at Mt Zion Free Lutheran Church, 800 Falling Springs Road, Landisburg, followed immediately by the funeral service at 11 AM, officiated by Pastor David Lusk. Interment will follow the funeral service in Mt. Zion Lutheran Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Mt Zion Free Lutheran Church, 800 Falling Springs Road, Landisburg, PA 17040 OR Landisburg Volunteer Fire Department, 301 Faculty Avenue, Landisburg, PA 17040.
