In her 89th year, Hermine Moeller, a long-time Burlington resident passed away on Sunday, December 31, 2017. Hermine was born on October 28, 1928 in Simbach, Germany. Hermine married Dennis Moeller and moved to the United States in 1958.
For many years Hermine worked in Dietary Services as Cafeteria Manager at Skagit Valley Hospital. She enjoyed traveling and sports, especially professional baseball and hockey. One of her special baseball memories was that of a spirited conversation of her favorite team, the Cincinnati Reds, with Pete Rose at the Corn Maze near Conway. Hermine enjoyed talking sports, including the past, present and future of most any professional team and would regularly engage what were complete strangers into her reminisces of their favorite teams and those strangers would quickly become friends.
Hermine is survived by her brothers, Erwin Speckbacher, of Mettenheim, Germany, Hermann (Ilse) Speckbacher, of Munich, Germany; son, Mike (Gayle) Moeller of Wasilla, AK; daughter, Michelle Moeller of Burlington; grandchildren, Melissa (John) Stowe Timberlake, of Seattle, Ashley Stowe Gallagher, of Burlington, Dane, Katrina, and Devon Moeller, of Wasilla AK; and great grandchild, John Timberlake, of Seattle, WA.
