Dear Heavenly Father, we bless you for all those Daughters who have departed this life in your faith and fear, working to fulfill your will on earth through prayer and service in the Order. May their faith and example inspire other women and girls to greater and more faithful labor for you. Grant the light of your presence and the glory of the life beyond to be her great and everlasting reward. Amen

Jane Moscato became a Daughter on June 15, 1957 at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Mount Holly, New Jersey. She later moved to Florida with her husband and family. Jane was one of the first members of our church, when congregants were meeting in a home. She helped our church grow by going door to door to pass out flyers about our church.

 

Jane was also one of the first members of our Altar Guild, started the refreshment hour, and helped begin the Outreach Ministry, which she ran from a room in her house, until the church was built. She also was on the church cleaning team and worked in the Memorial Garden.

 

Jane was a very active Daughter until her health caused her to become home bound. Many people who went to visit Jane to give her flowers or serve communion, left feeling uplifted from being touched by her joy and love. We mourn her passing and miss her earthly presence as we celebrate that her eternal life with God.

Elizabeth was a constant prayer warrior as well as a great encourager of others. Her smile could light up a room and make you feel like you were sitting with the angels. In her later years she was unable to go out so we went to see her. She was so glad to have company.

After Ethelyn graduated from Tulane University with a degree in mathematics, she went to work for a major oil company. From there she joined the Naval Reserve and received her commission in 1950. She served proudly in the Navy for five years, stationed at Mare Island, CA, and Pearl Harbor, HI.

Following her Navy service, Ethelyn was able to share her love of mathematics through a long and rewarding teaching career. The majority of her career was at Metairie Park Country Day School, Metairie, LA, where, in addition to teaching mathematics, she served as Head of the Mathematics Department, Principal of the Upper School and Assistant to the Headmaster. Ethelyn also shared her love of teaching through over 50 years work with the Delta Kappa Gamma (DKG) teachers' sorority in which she held state and international offices. When Ethelyn moved to Frederick in 2000 to be with her daughter Lynn, she was pleased to be able to continue her association with DKG.

While in New Orleans, Ethelyn had been a Lay Episcopal Minister at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. Upon moving to Frederick, she found her church community at All Saints' Frederick where she loved and was loved. Even though in her later years, when she was unable to perform physical duties for the church, she continued, as a Daughter of the King, to serve through constant and devoted prayer.

Ethelyn was, throughout all, an exceptionally loving mother and a woman of great humor, compassion and kindness. Her family, and her sisters in the Inspired senior Chapter and the Genesis Junior Daughters at All Saints’ Frederick, MD will miss her very much.
