Departed ~ 3/09/2012 ~ Pancreatic cancer

Donna Louise Mossler, 60, a long time resident of Lake Oswego, Oregon, died at home on Friday, March 9, 2012 after a valiant five year battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born April 6, 1951 in Tokyo, Japan, the daughter of John and Ramona (Sullivan) Mossler. Her father’s career in the U.S. State Department gave her the opportunity to see much of the globe, ranging from Thailand to Ethiopia, and attending schools in Africa and Southeast Asia during her high school years. She returned to the U.S. to attend college, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Oregon in 1972. After graduation, she pursued a career as a marketing executive in the computer industry, retiring from Intel. Donna thrived on being surrounded by her family, her legions of friends and reigning as “Queen of Mahjong." Her extraordinary loving, giving nature, her courage, strength, will power and wit are everlasting. She is survived by her son, Zak Mossler Bretherton, a freshman at Southern Oregon University; a sister, Diane Mossler (Robert Archer), of Jefferson, Ohio; a brother, John Mossler, of Port Charlotte, Florida; cousins Dr. Jeffrey (Calise) Mossler, of Carmel, Indiana and Mark Mossler (Barb) of Gainesville, Florida; aunts Gertrude Mossler, of New Albany, Indiana, and Dolores Mossler, of Gainesville, Florida. She was preceded in death by her parents, of Punta Gorda, Florida.
