Carolyn graduated from Weiser High School in 1958. She loved her graduating class, she looked forward to all of their many adventures together, especially the yearly reunions. Carolyn made life-long friendships that are rarely seen in today’s world.
Carolyn married the love of her life Darwin Hyde Moser December 14, 1958. Dad was very shy, so Mom chased him, caught him and kept him. They lived in Payette, Idaho and Summer Lake, Oregon before settling in Weiser, Idaho. They had three children Darla, Karen and Darren. Boyd Lynn and Ray Moser, (son of Boyd Moser that had passed from an accident) lived many years with them. Life was never boring on the farm, Carolyn worked right beside Darwin. She could be found on the tractor, in the fields, with the animals, cooking the meals, while keeping the roads hot running kids back and forth to town and the phone lines buzzing. Over the years Carolyn had many kids running in and out of the house and calling her ‘Mom’.
Carolyn joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Jan. 26, 1963. She held many faithful callings but her favorite calling was working with the cub scouts. She loved being a Den mother to all of Darren’s school and church friends. She was sealed to her Eternal companion in the Boise LDS temple June 13, 1992.
