Marina Mosher

August 12, 1929 – March 4, 2024


Marina Mosher passed away peacefully on Monday, March 4, 2024 at the age of 94. Marina was born in West Palm Beach, FL, on August 12, 1929 to Nicholas and Petroulia Morros, first-generation Greek immigrants. She and her two brothers were orphaned at an early age and spent their childhood in foster care.

On May 16, 1950 she married Philip “Bruce” Mosher. Together they raised four children and called many places home, including Florida, Texas, California, Virginia, Taiwan and finally Blaine, WA.

Marina was a wonderful mother and wife. Her home was a source of pride and she prioritized her family’s well being over her own. She had many interests, chief among them was cooking. She loved to entertain and hosted many gatherings. Despite losing her parents and Greek heritage at an early age, Marina learned to make many Greek recipes including baklava which she was famous for.

Marina loved music and was gifted with a beautiful voice. She could often be heard singing as she worked around her home, in the car with her family and in the choir at her church.   

She was at her happiest when visiting with her many friends and family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Marina was preceded in death by her parents, her brother Charles and her husband Bruce. She is survived by her children, Cathy Mosher, Carol Mosher, Cindy Lervik (Mark), Charles Mosher (Moki), 10 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and her brother Tony.

Marina was a beautiful lady inside and out. Her lovely smile and infectious laugh will be missed beyond words. The memories we share of her will be cherished and live on in the lives of her family and friends.

The family would like to thank the staff at Mount Baker Care Center in Bellingham for the loving care given to Marina.

A family celebration of Marina’s life will be planned at a later date.
