Eileen Erna (Rannow) Moehring, 90, of Biscay, went to join Glen and the Lord on Saturday, Oct. 31, 2015, at the Elim Nursing Home in Watertown.
 
Funeral services were held Saturday, Nov. 7, at St. John’s Church in Hassan Valley Township, Biscay, with the Rev. Robert Taylor officiating. Mary Huebert was the organist. Soloist David Sanken sang “Amazing Grace.”
 
Casket bearers were Marvin Moehring, Hillard Pollmann, Brian Holtberg, Gerald Harbarth, Michael Schuette and Lee Winkelman.
Interment was in the St. John’s Church Cemetery.
 
Eileen Erna (Rannow) Moehring was born Feb. 23, 1925, in Glencoe, the daughter of George and Freida (Jungclaus) Rannow. She was baptized as an infant and confirmed in her faith as a youth, both at St. John’s Church in Biscay. She grew up on a farm just outside of Biscay with her sisters, Doris, Donna and Marlys, and her brother, Maynard. She really enjoyed the farm life and spoke about it with joy throughout her life. She received her education in Hutchinson, graduating from Hutchinson High School.
 
On May 19, 1946, she was united in marriage to Glen Moehring at St. John’s Church. The couple made their home in Biscay for over 50 years. Their marriage was blessed with a son, Larry. They shared over 57 years of marriage before Mr. Moehring died on Dec. 24, 2003. In 2009, Mrs. Moehring became a resident at the Elim Nursing Home in Watertown.
 
Mrs. Moehring was a loving wife, mother and homemaker. She was a lifelong member of St. John’s Church, a member of the Country Dutchmen fan club and an avid polka fan. She did commercial baking for any and all occasions and was a cook for the Head Start program in McLeod County. She very much enjoyed the children and the activity with that job.
 
Mrs. Moehring developed a talent for art consisting of coloring and painting many, many beautiful pictures and other craft pieces that she freely gave away to any and all visitors. She also was the resident day brightener there and her cheerful attitude touched many people. She was feisty and active right up until the time she suffered a stroke on Oct. 21. Her family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Elim and Dr. Scott Jensen of Watertown and the Rev. Robert Taylor for the excellent care given and compassion and respect shown to her in her final days.
 
She is survived by her son, Larry (Arlene) Moehring of Inver Grove Heights; grandson, Chad Moehring and his friend, Heather; stepgrandchildren, Michael (Tammy) Schuette and their daughter, Rebecca, and Brenda (Bob) Wolf and Brenda’s son, Brian Holtberg; brother, Maynard Rannow of Glencoe; sisters, Marlys Vinkemeier of Watertown and Donna Baumann of Edina; nephews, nieces, other relatives and many friends.
 
She was preceded in death by her parents, George and Freida Rannow; husband, Glen Moehring; and sister, Doris Bren.
