Gale Anne Moser, 70, of Kennett Square, died Saturday, Jan. 21, at Chester County Hospital in West Chester. She is survived by Kem C. Moser, with whom she shared 45 years of marriage.
She dedicated her life to caring for the people around her and fought to bring out the best in the family and communities she was a part of; she left an indelible mark on those she loved and her presence will continue to be felt in their lives and actions.
Gale was born in Methuen, Mass. to the late Ronald and Anne (Eastwood) Sarner. She attended Skidmore College, where she graduated in 1969 with a bachelor of science degree in biology. As a research biologist, Gale worked for many organizations including Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia, and University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine both in Philadelphia and at New Bolton Center in Kennett Square.
Gale was active in her children’s PTO, where she was a founding member of both the Kennett High School Ice Hockey Team and the Kennett After Prom program. She was involved with the Fairville Friends preschool and the Kennett Run, both in their early beginnings, and was a member of the Kennett Historical Society.
Her real passion was her family and friends. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt whose boundless love and unwavering support served as an example and inspiration for her family. Strong, intelligent, impassioned, compassionate, loyal, silly, fiercely kind, insightful, magical, bold, and a true believer in everyone she loved; all who knew and loved her are better for it.
Gale is further survived by her sons, Ryan J. Moser (Rae Talerico) of Jersey City, N.J. and Seth A. Moser of Manhattan, N.Y.; her daughter, Rachel M. Carroll (Anthony Jr) of Downingtown; her brother, James Sarner (Deborah) of Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; her sisters, Karin McNair (Timothy) of Erie, and Anne Quinn (Raymond) of Utica, N.Y.; her four grandchildren, Aiden Carroll, Gabriel Carroll, Chloe Carroll and Theo Moser; her sisters-in-law, Rochelle Freedman of Allentown, and Cathy Sarner of Hartford, N.Y.; Barbara Berkman, with whom she shared 55 years of friendship; and Shaina Robbins, her close friend and caretaker. She was predeceased by her brother, Ronald, and brother-in-law, Brian.
