Obituary

Roberta M. Tourish (nee Moseley) of Hainesport, NJ passed away on Thursday, November 11, 2021 at the age of 89.  After a full life Roberta peacefully reunited with her husband John in heaven.    

Roberta was born in Philadelphia on May 8, 1932 to Robert and Veronica Moseley (deceased).  Roberta is survived by her children Kathleen O’Brien (Dan) of Blue Bell Pennsylvania, John Tourish (Leslie) of Austin Texas, Anne Marie Moldow (Tom) of Raleigh North Carolina, Monica Tourish (Scott) of Matthews North Carolina, Regina Wahlen (Markus) of Cologne Germany and Rosemary Schrader of Glenolden Pennsylvania; grandchildren Daniel Moldow (Britt), Emily Moldow, Rose Alexandra Hunter, Danny O’Brien, Michael Wahlen, Molly O’Brien, Rachael Moldow, Lauren Tourish, Marie Wahlen, Bianca Schrader and Finnegan Schrader.

Roberta was the eldest of 10 children and modeled grace, strength and integrity to her siblings Veronica, William (deceased), Edward, Robert (deceased), Mary, Augustine, Joseph, Gerard and John.

Roberta met the love of her life John at USF&G insurance company in Philadelphia where they both worked.  They married in 1955 and started their family living in PA, NJ, NC and back to NJ.  Roberta took great pride in not only being a loving and supportive wife to John but an incredible mother to her six children.    

Roberta was an incredibly strong person who would push through any adversity including a fight with dystonia that started over 40 years ago.  Even though Roberta was in pain or discomfort just about all the time due to the dystonia, she refused to let it rule her.  She fought off death in childbirth, multiple cancers and even COVID-19.  Roberta’s perseverance was a testament to her feisty, strong-willed spirit.  Our good Lord blessed her for enduring her suffering; she passed away at home peacefully in her sleep.
