Charles Edward Mosheim, 83, of Zionsville, passed away on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at Lehigh Valley Hospital Cedar Crest. He was the loving husband of Marilyn H. (Oppelt) Mosheim, sharing 62 years of marriage together.

Born in Pottstown, he was the son of the late Charles S. and Frances (Shaner) Mosheim.

Ed was a 1954 graduate of Upper Perkiomen High School and a 1958 PI KAPPA PHI graduate of Penn State University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry. He was a chemist that handled rare medals for Cabot Corporation in Boyertown for 45 years.

Ed was also a member of the Upper Perkiomen School Board for 22 years, serving as a past president. He enjoyed stamp and rock collecting, tracing family genealogies, and golfing. He especially enjoyed traveling the world with his wife experiencing new countries and forming new friendships. They were lucky enough to travel to China, Australia, Brazil and many other places outside the United States. He also was a local historian of Hereford Township, writing the book “Early Times in Hereford Township”.

Surviving along with his wife are his two children, Lisa A. Mosheim and husband, Paul Farrington of Barto and David E.

My fondest memories of Ed were during the summer of 1954 when we spent a summer together working in the restaurant industry in Wildwood NJ. He was adventure. When I ran into him in Pennsburg at the beginning of that Summer and mentioned to him that I was going to the Shore to work, he thought for a few seconds, and said "I have nothing planned this summer, OK if I come along?" And so we found a place to room together. Our interactions with our landlady were the source of our conversations whenever we met for the next 66 years. It turned out she worked in vaudeville in her youth, always wanted her toenails trimmed, the thought of witch grossed Ed out, and always had a loaded pistol in her pocket. Of the two of us Ed was her favorite.
We had a great time together that Summer. Ed was a great guy.

My cousin, Ed, was a special person -an accomplished scientist, a community leader who served many years on his local School Board, a historian who researched our family's genealogy and published a book about his community, and he was first and foremost, a loving husband, brother, father, and grandfather. He had an inquisitive mind and always expressed a positive outlook. He made his mark and left many wonderful memories. Dan, Maurice, and I send out most heartfelt sympathy to all whose lives he touched.
