Lucy Blaase Mouser passed away peacefully in her sleep among family Thursday, March 27, 2014. She was a resident of Greenwood.
Born to Loren and Jane Blaase on July 8, 1954, Lucy was raised in Greenwood and graduated from Greenwood Community High School and Purdue University.
While in high school, Lucy was a flag girl with the marching band, which was one of the first of many Greenwood marching bands to place among the Sweet Sixteen in the state finals. She was also an honor student and earned numerous academic scholarships. While at Purdue, Lucy was a member of Chi Omega sorority and participated in many campus activities.
Lucy and her husband of 31 years, Dennis, raised their children, Andrew and Carrie, in Brighton, Mich., where she enjoyed watching both children excel in numerous sports and school events. (She of course never bragged about them!) Lucy was also a proud and very involved member of the Brighton United Methodist Church after growing up in the Greenwood United Methodist Church, of which she was a lifelong member. She also enjoyed a long and successful career as a Realtor with Prudential, where she won many awards and trips through the years.
Lucy was preceded in death by her dad, Loren Blaase; grandparents, Margaret and Frank McCormick; grandma, Cele; and grandpa, Pie Blaase.
She is survived by her husband, Dennis Mouser; her mother, Jane Blaase; a son, Andrew Mouser (Teri); a daughter, Carrie Sciberras (Manny); five grandchildren, Charlie, Oliver and Henry Mouser, and Aaliyah and Aidan Sciberras; two brothers, Stan Blaase (Laura) and Doug Blaase (Lisa); three nieces; and five nephews.
Most importantly of all, Lucy possessed a strong faith in Jesus Christ and dedicated her life toward serving him while helping others through her work in the church.
A funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday at Greenwood United Methodist Church, 525 Madison Ave. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until service time Saturday at the church.
The family has asked in lieu of flowers that donations be made in Lucy’s name to either Greenwood United Methodist or Brighton United Methodist Church (Brighton, Mich.).
