Christel Mooney (Zeiger)

Christel passed away June 28, 2016 in Torrance. Christel was born May 25, 1942 in Wertheim-am-Mein, Germany. Christel met her husband Dennis Mooney when Dennis was stationed in Germany with the US Army. They married in 1963 and moved to Queens, NY where their 3 children Sandra, Dennis and Eric were born.

In February of 1973, the family moved to Torrance, CA. Christel dedicated all of her time to raising and taking care of her family. She never missed a performance, game or anything else that was important to her children. Once the grandchildren started coming, Christel spent a lot of time watching and helping to care of them.
