Mary Moul Schroeder   


Schroeder, Mary M. age 83  (12/10/1925 02/19/2009)
Mary Moul Schroeder passed away in the presence of  her daughters on Feb. 19, 2009, after a valiant effort to beat aplastic  anemia. Mary Ellen Moul was born Dec. 10, 1925, in Madrid, Neb., to Sarah "Sally" Ford and George "Mick" Moul.  After graduating from Madrid High  School in 1943, Mary received a scholarship to attend the Colorado  Business School in Denver. She was one of three students selected from  this school for a position with the Pentagon where she worked until she  was chosen for a secretarial position with the Atomic Energy Commission in  Los Alamos, N.M. While in Los Alamos, Mary met Harvey Schroeder, a  security inspector for the Los Alamos Laboratory, and they married on Jan.  31, 1948. They remained happily married until Harvey's death in October  2000. When Harvey was transferred to the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory in  1956 they moved to Livermore, Calif., where Mary raised her family. Harvey  and Mary lived in Livermore until they moved to the Willamette area of  West Linn and built a home along the Tualatin River in 1976. Mary worked  as a bookkeeper for Youth Adventures from 1976 to 1988. After her  retirement, she remained an active member of the West Linn - Willamette  Chapter of the Lions Auxiliary and served as a treasurer and president.  She enjoyed keeping track of all of the wildlife that lived along the  river and was a member of the Tualatin Riverkeepers. Mary began taking  piano lessons in 2000 and became a skilled pianist who enjoyed playing the  piano daily. She loved to travel, whether it was a day excursion or a trip  across the country. She took special pleasure in trips to see her brothers  who lived in California, Idaho, Illinois and Nebraska. Mary was very proud  of her grandchild, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, great-nieces  and great-nephews. She enjoyed tracking and sharing their progress in  life. A wonderful cook, Mary made pies with a crust that could not be  matched. Every year during berry season, she would fill the freezer with  homemade jam which she was happy to share with family and friends. Mary is  survived by her brothers and sisters-in-law, George and Betty Moul of  Folsom, Calif., John and Pat Moul of Chicago, Francis and Janet Moul of  Livermore, Calif.; her daughters and sons-in-law, Lorraine and Steve  Wilkins of Portland and Sarah and Ron Brown of West Linn; her grandson and  his wife, Zachary and Reanna Brown, and great-grandchildren, Alexander and  Emily Brown, of West Linn. She was preceded in death by her husband,  Harvey; parents, Sally and Mick Moul; brother, Keith Moul; and brother and  sister-in-law, Willis and Eileen Moul. A service will be held at 10 a.m.  Friday, Feb. 27, 2009, at Holman-Hankins-Bowker & Waud, 715 7th  Street, Oregon City, OR 97045.
