    I was saddened to learn about Mary. She has been an icon in the history of OPS and the OEA. Her long service on the credit union board saw go from less than $1 million in assets to more than $130 million. So many people have benefited from her selfless devotion to others. She will be missed.

    Mary Moberg was one of the kindest people I have ever met. She was a great friend. I will miss our lunches very much. She was always willing to pitch in for a good cause. She served as President of the Omaha Education Association (OEA) from 1978-1979 and also served on the Nebraska State Education Association (NSEA) Board of Directors for several years. A life well-lived! Rest in Peace, my friend.

    Our condolences to the family and friends that Mary leaves behind. She was a wonderful person, devoting much of her life to teaching (serving 37 years as a Kindergarten teacher), and service to others. She served on the Educators/First Nebraska Credit Union board from 1973 to 2018. This was in addition to her service with the OEA, NSEA, and Metro District boards. She had shared with us that she enjoyed spending her free time with family, friends and education colleagues. She also liked golfing and volunteering. We want the family and community to know how much we appreciated her dedication and commitment to serving others! Truly a life well-lived!.

    Mary continued her service to others through her work through the Women’s Auxiliary of the Salvation Army.

    In addition to all of Mary’s teaching accolades, her OEA service, her volunteering, Mary helped at our store, Paper Bizarre, for a number of years. Mary was the center of fun, always willing to help out when needed and lent her creative talents unselfishly. Everyone who worked at Paper Bizarre would echo our thoughts; she was simply an amazing person. What a blessing to us and our wonderful customers that Mary was part of our lives.

    Both my sister, Pat Shafer, and I remember the humor and kindness that Mary always brought to every gathering. She was a tireless worker and volunteer, and a woman who cared deeply about teachers, teaching, children, and all of the things required to educate generations of good people. She will be missed and lovingly remembered. May she rest in peace.

    After reading through.others comments, I just felt the need to expand the story of her service, I first encountered Mary when I was a faculty representative at the OEA meetings, and she was president. I next encountered her when I became a member of Alpha Delta Kappa and her chapter would occasionally join mine for various activities. Then I retired and someone asked me to join Omaha Area Retired School Employees Association. And, of course, there was Mary. I believe she might have been president of that organization, too, but I do know for sure she was in charge of the scholarship program for years and graciously bought prizes for our volunteer program. Such a generous person, and her smile was wonderful. I remember a delightfully quirky person who just made everyone feel better by being around. I’m going to miss her.

    Mary was simply a wonderful person to know. I never heard her complain about anything. Rest in peace dear Mary.

    Mary was the utmost model of what it means to be an educator. I remember working with her on OEA, NSEA, and NEA activities. You will never find a more kind, generous, person.than Mary. I just know that Mary is being greeted by St. Peter with “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

  • MARY ELLEN STIVERSON Posted September 8, 2023 7:08 pm

    So sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. I knew her through the Omaha Education Association and the Omaha Area Retired School Employees Association. I have always admired her dedication to service and to her friends. Her presence will be sorely missed.

    Mary and I became friends serving together on the OEA Board of Directors. It was a lasting friendship that I will always remember. She was kind and caring, a great person!
