Mrs. Moffatt was born May 22, 1945. She grew up on a farm in southern Illinois. At age 10 her father was killed in a tractor accident, and her family moved to a nearby town where she became active in 4-H and volunteered at the nursing home.
After high school, she graduated from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale.
She taught junior high school for a time and completed graduate degrees in education, counseling, and divinity.
She was married to John Moffatt June 8, 1968.
For almost 25 years, she and her family were members of St Paul’s United Methodist Church in Stevens Point where she served in nearly every lay capacity. Her commitment to the active role of laity in the church became a focus when she answered a call to ordained ministry. In 2008 she retired after having served as a district superintendent of the Wisconsin United Methodist Church.
She worked as director of Volunteer Services at St Michael’s Hospital in Stevens Point, as campus minister at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and as pastor of United Methodist churches in Fairchild, Humbird, Amherst, Buena Vista and Appleton.
Survivors include her husband; one son, John Frederick (Alyssa); one brother, Roger; one grandson, Oliver; two nieces and two nephews.
