Marriott Welch Moszka

Marriott W. Moszka passed away at home on 9/16/20 with her husband, daughter, cat Opus, and her wonderful care assistant Sarah by her side. 

Marriott was born in Easton Maryland to Francis W. Welch Jr and Emily Travers Welch. At an early age she developed a life-long deep affection for animals. She was an avid horsewoman when young and adored her horse Lindsay. She was a graduate of Hannah More Academy in Baltimore. She married her first husband in 1956 and moved to Concord Massachusetts. They had three children, but later divorced. In 1975 she married Stanley J. Moszka, and she began a career as a vet tech at Chabot Veterinary Hospital in Lexington. She frequently brought home to nurture or adopt all sorts of animals. There were squirrels, birds, a duck in the bathtub, raccoons, mice, and of course countless cats and dogs. And she had a novel name for every one of them. 

Marriott and Stan later moved to Sandwich where they could indulge in their loves of gardening, birdwatching and beach strolling. Marriott loved knitting, the Boston Red Sox and the Patriots, Scottish steel cut oats, and spending hours reading British mysteries while Stan cooked their dinner. She absolutely adored her two grandsons. She had a great sense of humor, wore all manner of shocking headdresses for fun, and often drew fantastic cartoon cards for birthdays and other events. 

Waiting to join her is her beloved and loving husband Stan, her daughter Whitney and husband Kent Foster of Sandwich, son Alec Peters of Jupiter Florida, son Rob Peters and wife Joanne and their sons Robby and Frank of Santa Clarita California, her stepchildren Linda, Steven, Bill and their spouses, children and grandchildren. There are many other family and friends that she dearly loved. 

She is predeceased by her sister Robin Ashley. Her brother Francis W. Welch III lives in Tucson Arizona and brother John H. Welch lives in Jamaica Plain. 

There is no service and a memorial date is yet to be decided. The family would like to thank Beacon Hospice for their guidance, care and compassion. We ask that any donations in Marriott's name be made to and
