Fae Hulet Moss or Granny Fae to her family and Rockland Valley passed away peacefully Thursday night, April 28, 2011 at the home of her daughter Teri (Brian) Fehringer in Idaho Falls.
Her death came 32 days after her twin brother Ray Hulet passed away.
She was born March 16, 1923 in Provo, Utah to John S. and Nancy Hunt Hulet. At three weeks of age the family of eight moved to Morgan, Utah. It was there she learned the meaning of responsibility and the value of hard work. Her stamina in all aspects of her life was the result of hard work.
When she entered the 9th grade the family moved to Rockland, Idaho the place she called home for 72 years. Fae gained two new interests at Rockland High School. She learned to love playing the game of basketball and she fell in love with Keith Moss. Keith and Fae were married September 16, 1942 in the Salt Lake City Temple.
They made their living on a dairy farm with their 7 daughters, "milkmaids". Fae knew the farming operation inside and out which proved invaluable. Fae was left a widow at 46 years of age. She still had 4 girls at home, a dairy farm to run and five employees to manage. All of these responsibilities were handled with knowledge and authority. After she sold the farm, Fae moved to town and continued the role of motherhood.
Five years ago Fae moved into the Cottonwood Cove in Chubbuck where she was able to enjoy her independence and cheer for her beloved Utah Jazz team in private. Fae grew to love her neighbors and associates at the Cove.
Fae was a life-long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although she dealt with many trials, her faith never wavered.
Fae is survived by her seven daughters and spouses: Kaye (Dennis) Wilson, Helen Rae Ash, Lois (Rod) Egli, Sharon (Steven) Kohler, Dixie (Jim) Olsen, DeAnn (Duane) Blackburn and Teri (Brian) Fehringer; 24 grandchildren, and their spouses; 38 great-grandchildren and one on the way.
