Anne Moschetto Obituary

Anne was born in Chandler, Colorado Sept 20, 1921, and joined her family and friends in heaven on Jan 11, 2024. Anne was 102. She was devoted to her Family, Faith, and her Italian Heritage.

In 1926, Anne moved with her parents Tony and Elizabeth Moschetto siblings Rocco, Mary, Joe, Carmelina, Vincent, and Clara to Seattle. Anne grew up on Beacon Hill attending St George and graduated in 1938 from Holy Names Academy. Anne was a longtime resident and Parishioner of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in West Seattle for over 30yrs. She was a member of the YLI Carmelita Institute since 1947.

Anne worked as a Secretary for the MJB Coffee Co. for retirement. She then went to work for The Jack Benaroya Company for many years. Anne tried her skills at Blake’s Bakery in West Seattle for a few years then off to Holy Rosary Catholic Church where she worked till, she was in her mid 90” s.

Anne loved to travel. Anne and her very good friend Lorraine every year would book a 2-week vacation to some exotic places, such as Fiji, Jamaica, South America. This was back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. She also made several trips to Italy. Her mother and father were from Tarranta Peligna her favorite place in Italy was Tuscany. She was very proud of her Italian Hertiage and was President of the Italian Club in the 60’s.

Anne was an avid Seahawk Fan. She loved watching the game on TV and would get so worked up. There were times she couldn’t take it anymore and just turned the game off. I’m pretty sure that’s the only time she would cuss.

She loved visiting with her dear friends on the phone or in person. It meant a great deal to Anne. She loved walking all over the junction everyday up until she was around 95.

Holy Rosary Church gave Anne her religious strength. Anne was devoted to the church and God.

Her strongest passion and devotion was her family. Anne never married or had children, so all her nieces and nephews became her children. Auntie had the ability to give us “The Look” when she was upset with us and trust me we all straightened up quickly. Living to a 102 she saw many of us become older adults which she couldn’t believe that she was there when we were born and now, she’s seeing us growing older. She is survived by Bonnie Lambert, Robert Sacco, Judy, Marijean and Terri Moschetto, Gordie Mueller and me who was Anne’s caregiver for the last 12yrs. Nancy Sacco Chiodo. Anne lost 3 of her nephews, Jim Sacco Jr, Terry Mueller and Jim Rockey. Anne is also survived by her sister-in-law Elinor Moschetto who is 108yr. and numerous great and great great nieces, nephews.

Few people that I have talked to that knew Anne said “I just loved Anne, she was very sweet and it always made me smile when I saw her. She was just a firecracker.”

“102 WOW!!! What history she saw.

“Where does she get her energy. She like the energizer bunny.”

“Anne is always put together her makeup and hair is always perfect.”

Anne truly will be missed. She missed her family that had passed before her so, so much. In the last few months, she would pray to be with them again. She had a very full life and was ready to go. I would hear her say “Why am I still here?” Just wasn’t your time Auntie. She is now with her family and all one again. You did your duty and job on earth Auntie and you did a great job. We are all very lucky to have had you for all these years. Thank You for everything you did for us. You gave life a hell of a run!
