   Elaine D. (Olson) Moseson, 92, of Danvers, passed away on Sunday, October 13, 2019. She was the loving wife of the late Roger M. Moseson with whom she shared 64 years of marriage.

   Born in Minot, ND on July 26, 1927, she was the daughter of the late Otto and Julia (Dutter) Olson.

   An accomplished artist with many talents including painting, weaving, soft sculpture and needlework, Elaine was a member of the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society and the Stoneham Crafts Society.  She taught soft-sculpture, exhibited her work in many arts & craft shows, and participated in many volunteer activities throughout her life. She was always ready to try new passions (origami, yoga, or a new recipe) - always sharing her talents with her friends and relatives.

   She leaves two children, Marshall Moseson and his wife Diann and Virginia Moseson and her partner Martha Fahrer, and many nieces and nephews, and many dear friends.
