Donna Moses passed away on September 26, 2022.
From the obituary:
Donna Jean Moses (nee Hrechko), beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away Monday, September 26, 2022 at age 77. Her loss is felt deeply by her many friends and family. She is survived by her husband, Ron Moses, sons Matthew (Jennifer Hayes Moses) and Nicholas (Stephanie Medina Cas), daughter Alexandra (Justin Hyde) and four grandchildren, Alexander and Julian Moses, and Carter and Amelia Hyde. Moses was born to Alexander and Violet Hrechko on January 18, 1945, in Joliet, Illinois. She loved to tell stories about her childhood in Joliet and her friends, cousins, aunts and uncles who attended St. George Serbian Orthodox Church. The church and her family were central parts of her life even after moving to Aurora, Illinois in 1976. A lifelong teacher, Moses taught in St. Joseph, Michigan and Plainfield, Illinois before spending more than 20 years teaching in Aurora Public Schools. She retired from Simmons Middle School in 2007. She had a fondness for animals, not only raising cats and dogs, but helping rescue those in need, including a family of ducklings and an injured crow that she would bring into her classroom to show her students. An avid reader and birdwatcher, she always had a book close by and a pair of binoculars on the windowsill. No doubt she will be missed by the backyard birds she fed so well and her devoted Belgian sheepdog Dazzle. Moses is preceded in death by her parents, her brother Alexander Hrechko and her nephew Robert Hrechko.
