Lyla Moger, age 92, of Preston, Minn., died on Friday, June 8, 2018, at her home where she had resided for the last four years. She was born on December 29, 1925, near Highland, Minn., to John and Olga (Flattum) Glenna.

She grew up next to the Highland Church where she attended and was confirmed. She attended school in Lanesboro, Minn.

She was united in marriage to James Moger on February 24, 1941, at First Lutheran Church of Highland, and to this union five children were born, Lyle, Rockny, Rodney, Marjewel and Rhonda.

After their marriage Lyla and James lived on a farm near Highland before moving to Springvalley, Dover, Cedar rapids, Iowa, and Winona. While in Cedar Rapids Lyla worked for Collins Radio. After moving to Winona, Minn., she was employed by Neko Technologies, Technigraph, Whetstone Machine and Wincraft, where she retired in the early 1990s.

Lyla truly loved and enjoyed her family and friends and spending time with them.

She enjoyed crocheting, playing cards, teaching her grandchildren how to play cards, trips to the casinos and road trips anywhere and everywhere. She always had a suitcase packed and ready to go. She was always game for anything.

Recently she found a passion in making crocheted hats and head bands for the infants at St. Jude’s and other local hospitals.

Lyla is survived by her daughters, Marjewel Salisbury of Winona, and Rhonda (Doug Wobig) Merchlewitz of Preston; eight grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; 10 great-great grandchildren; and two brothers, Jerome (Bernita) Glenna of Lake City, Minn., and Gilman Glenna of Winona, Minn.; and many nieces and nephews.
