Ida Mae (Parkins) Moro, loving wife and mother, was born on February 11, 1935 in Leavenworth to Lucille (Harn) and Joseph E. Parkins. She passed away in her sleep on December 25, Christmas Day, 2019.

Ida was the middle of three daughters. She had too many relatives to count including numerous first cousins. She met her high school sweetheart Gerald ‘Jerry’ Moro at Wenatchee High School where both graduated in 1953. She was editor of the Apple Leaf school newspaper, was in choir, and participated in numerous other clubs and activities.

She and Jerry married on October 9, 1953 at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Waterville. They moved around for a few years before settling back in Wenatchee where they had nine children in the first ten years of marriage. Mom was raised a devout Catholic and Jerry joined her in the faith. She enjoyed singing in the church choir, helping at St. Joseph School attended by all of their children including the penny carnival and bingo. She taught and mentored young Catholics in the CCD (Catholic education) classes and through ‘Search‘. She helped put out the church bulletin for years. Jerry was a BSA scoutmaster and Mom was always involved.

She was very energetic in her younger years. Besides running after her nine children, she also helped Jerry maintain their rental properties and edited the ‘Rental Times’ pamphlets for a local landlord group. Mom was a creative and intelligent person who had many interests including doing ceramics, walking on the beach and collecting shells, fishing, creating dried flower arrangements, and painting houses - Including mastering the ‘sponge’ technique. She loved to garden and always took interest in whatever hobbies either Jerry or her children pursued. The Seahawks and Mariners will miss this loyal fan!

She could play piano by ear and to her last few days enjoyed singing. She was a voracious reader and could easily read a book every day. She also took a break by playing Bingo, going to the casino, or just chatting with others. She enjoyed learning about others and was always rooting for the underdog.
She and Jerry traveled in Europe in the 1970’s and then all over the United States in their motor home after the kids were raised. Mom was Jerry’s biggest fan on the trapshooting circuit.

She loved her nine children, her dozens of grandchildren, and her nieces and nephews.
She and Jerry fostered nine children and treated them all as members of the family.

She is survived by her husband Gerald ‘Jerry’ Moro, her husband of 66 years, her sister Phyllis ‘Molly’ (Parkins) DeChenne who is married to Gary, all nine of her children, numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her children are Teresa (David) Johnson of Sedro-Wooley; Gerald J. (Lori) Moro of Touchet; Michael G. (Joan) Moro of Moses Lake; Catherine (Jim) Ruhoff of Wenatchee, Eric (Brenda) Moro of Spokane; Thomas ‘Tony’ (Tina) Moro of Chelan; Perry Moro of Moses Lake; Lucy (Doug) Batson of Wenatchee and Mary (Lori Lewis) Moro of Malaga and her dog Lucky.

She is preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Lucille Parkins and her sister Anne ‘Nancy’ Ogle.

Holy Rosary will be recited on Thursday, January 9, 2020 at 7:00 PM in the chapel at St. Joseph’s Church in Wenatchee. Mass of the Christian Burial will be celebrated on Friday, January 10, 2019 at 11:00 AM at St. Joseph Church in Wenatchee with inurnment to follow at the Wenatchee City Cemetery.

To the Moro children, especially the ones I remember, Eric, Perry Tony, Mike, Lucy. I am sorry about your mother's death. Our mom passed a year ago, too. It's hard to lose your mom, because you only get one, one single mom. I remember having fun bonfires with your whole family when we were all little kids and you guys lived on Washington and we lived around the corner on Western. May her memory be a blessing in your lives and may her best traits live on in her children and grandchildren.
