Obituary for Charla Rose Moos (Bechard)

Charla Rose (Bechard) Moos passed away peacefully on August 5, 2022, at her home. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She was the first born to Adeline (Kepka) and Armond Bechard Sr. on October 11, 1952. After graduating high school, Charla married the love of her life, Dennis Moos at the Immaculate Conception Church in Grinnell, KS. Together they had three children: Kimberly, John, and Jennifer.

Charla loved spending time with her family along with cheering on her KSU Wildcats. Her five brothers and sister did eventually get her to cheer for the Jayhawks during KU Volleyball games, which she loved to watch.

During her battle with Polycystic Kidney Disease, she was able to receive two lifesaving kidney transplants which allowed her to make many more precious memories with her family.

Charla was a member of the Altar Society, VFW Auxiliary, and served many years as a 4-H Leader. Her hobbies included making crafts and the many rosaries she made for others over the years. Charla is especially remembered for her kolaches she would make for friends, neighbors and the Grinnell Warriors activity and athletic teams.

Those proceeding her in death are her parents, Adeline and Armond Bechard Sr., her brother Don Bechard and her six precious grandbabies.

Charla will be greatly missed by her husband, Dennis of Grinnell; daughters, Kimberly (Steve) Crooker, of Alexandria, VA and Jennifer (Jason) Burrows, of Hugoton, KS; son John, of Lawrence, KS; four grandchildren, Jayden, Joshua and Jaycee Burrows and Jude Crooker; her siblings, Harold (Susan) Bechard, of Salina, sister-in-law Jan Bechard, of Gardner, Richard (Pam) Bechard, of Overland Park, Raymond (Pam) Bechard, of Lawrence, Armond Jr. (Cindy) Bechard, of Leawood and Mary Beth (Jay) Nelson, of Tonganoxie, along with many nieces and nephews.
