Erline Francis Moen, 91, died Friday, June 2nd, in her Salem home due to cancer. Erline was born on July 22, 1922 in Milton-Freewater, Oregon to parents Fred and Mary Bier. After graduation from high school, she met and married her husband and lifelong companion, Irvin Moen. They were married on June 21, 1940.

He was born in September 1951. In the early 70’s, Erline became a florist and quickly excelled in that work. She retired in the mid 80’s.

Erline is survived by her son Michael, and Nieces Sis and Janet and their families.
