Mosher, William Rockwell

Written by ECA Review


October 20, 1937 – March 1, 2017
Born in Consort, Ab. to Charlie and Minnie Mosher, Bill lived his whole life on the land between Consort and Coronation.
Dad went to school in Loyalist and Consort and especially enjoyed participating in 4-H and Air Cadets during his high school years.
He soon met a young teacher, Wilma Tennant, who became the love of his life. They married July 9, 1960 and together in 1962 bought the farm in the Talbot community where they spent the rest of their days.
It was hard to make ends meet in the early days but we always had something to eat, and always bought apples to “keep the doctor away” and made good use of the paper wrappers that came with them!
A fire took the barn in the early years which was a hidden blessing as the insurance made the land payments that year.
Fighting fire was just one of the many memories of community coming together that were part of the heritage we knew growing up.
Dad was a very hard working man, and did whatever work was needed to keep the farm going, so that by the time his kids reached their teen years, things were running smoothly and we enjoyed many good things and times together.
Bill passed away at his home on the farm he loved March 1, 2017. Right up through his last days, he was able to enjoy the land, watch over the wildlife, collect deer antlers, and know the care and concern of family and community around him.
Bill is lovingly remembered by his son Lyle (Alison) Mosher of Magnolia, Ab., daughter Lorene (Dan) Dammann of Lyalta, Ab.; sister Mildred, as well as 15 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren and numerous other relatives.
The family is very grateful to the community, especially to the Talbot Community and Coronation Funeral Home.
Donations may be made to the Coronation Health Centre Foundation.
