GASTONIA - Catherine Pearson "Cacky" Moser, 84, lived a joyous and bountiful life.

She died July 28, 2013, as she lived, peacefully surrounded by loving family and friends. She was born June 30, 1929, in Gastonia, the daughter of the late Plato Poletus Pearson and Catherine Scurry Pearson. She was the loving wife of the late Daniel Boone Moser Sr., whom she married in 1950.

She was a graduate of Gastonia High School and Salem College, Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She taught junior high school briefly, and spent many busy years raising her four children and serving her community. She was devoted to her husband, children, grandchildren and ex-tended family. The third of four children, she was preceded in death by her brother, William Charles Pearson and sister, Anne Pearson Thomas.

A member of First United Methodist Church of Gastonia for over sixty years, Cacky faithfully served her church in many capacities, including Sunday School teacher, President and other positions in the United Methodist Women, and on Church and Society, Family Life Center, Staff Parish and Stewardship committees. She set a wonderful example of faith, love and service. She was also a past President of the Azalea Garden Club and the Debutante Club and was a member of the Junior League of Gaston County.
Mama Cacky, as she was affectionately called by her grandchildren and many of their friends, loved being with family and friends, especially at Pawleys Island, where she was a great entertainer and hostess. She loved bridge, tennis, golf, and her Club 21. She was always ready to travel, shop, or go dancing. She was great fun to be around.

The family will receive friends, Friday, August 2, 2013, from 3 to 4:30 p.m., in the Living Room at Covenant Village.

A service to celebrate her life will be held 2 p.m. Saturday at First United Methodist Church with Dr. James Westmoreland and the Rev. David Christie officiating.

The family will receive friends following the service in the Family Life Center of the church.

A private service of committal will be held for the family in the church columbarium.
Cacky is survived by her brother, Plato "Tete" P. Pearson, Jr., and his wife Bet, and her beloved sister-in-law, Mary Lou Pearson; her son, Daniel Boone Moser, Jr. and his wife Betty, all of Gastonia; three daughters, Lyn Moser Anderson and her husband, Jim, of Gastonia; Christine Moser McFarland, and her husband, Alex, of Decatur, Georgia, and Cari Moser Schall and her husband, Greg, of Norcross, Georgia.
