James M. (Jim) Mohs M.D. Obituary
James M. Mohs, M.D. James (Jim) M. Mohs, M.D., 74, of Visalia passed away suddenly on Friday, July 11, 2014. Jim was born on July 6, 1940 in Webster, SD to the late Frank M. and Catherine Schabel Mohs. He graduated from Webster High School in 1958. He graduated from University of Notre Dame in 1962. He went on the Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. for medical school. He graduated from medical school on June 6, 1966. Following his medical school graduation, Jim went to the University of Missouri, Columbia, where he completed his residency and fellowship in Endocrinology. Jim went on to receive his board certification in Internal Medicine in 1977 and his board certification in Endocrinology in 1979. It was while he was attending Georgetown Medical School in Washington, D.C. that Jim met Sheila Gardner. Jim and Sheila were married on September 24, 1966 in Washington, D.C. They moved to Columbia, MO in 1966 so Jim could complete his training at the University of Missouri, Columbia. Daughter Laura Catherine was born in Columbia in 1967. In 1968, the family moved to San Antonio, TX so Jim could complete a two year commitment as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force. While in San Antonio, son James Michael Mohs II was born in 1969. Jim was honorably discharged as a captain in 1970 and the family returned to Columbia, MO, so Jim could continue with his training and fellowship in Endocrinology. Jim and Sheila welcomed a second son, Timothy Mathew in 1972, and then a third son, Brian Patrick in 1974. Jim and Sheila moved the family to Visalia, CA in 1974 and Jim began his medical practice at the Visalia Medical Clinic. At the time of his death, Jim was "semi-" retired, still practicing part-time at the Visalia Medical Clinic and seeing patients at the County Health clinics in Visalia and Exeter. In addition to his great love of practicing medicine and helping patients, Jim was passionate in his support of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. He could always be counted on for updates and anecdotes about Irish football. Many a Saturday from August to November were spent anxiously watching his beloved team. In recent years, Jim and Sheila loved spending time in Cambria, CA. Jim loved nothing more than spending time with his family and with his spoiled dog, Lucy. Jim is survived by Sheila, his wife of 47 years; his children, Laura Mohs of Visalia, CA, James Mohs II also of Visalia, and Brian (Hope) Mohs of Chico, CA; his grandchildren, Mya and Michael Mohs; and his brother Dr. Frank Mohs of St. Louis, MO. He was preceded in death by his son, Timothy, his parents, and his brother John Mohs. Visitation will be at Salser and Dillard Funeral Chapel on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm.
