MOSER, MARLIS  
MARLIS MOSER Marlis Haas Moser, 88, of Las Vegas, passed away March 27, 2015. She was born Oct. 6, 1926, in Germany, to Klara Nagel and Adam Haas. Her father was a World War I flying ace who flew with the Red Baron. Marlis wanted to be a chemist and enjoyed a privileged life until World War II, during which both her father and older brother died. During the Occupation, Marlis met John R. Moser, an American soldier who brought her to Tucson, Ariz. (along with her treadle sewing machine), where they were married in 1949. In the southwest, she learned English, raised their daughter, Suzy, and fell in love with the wide open spaces and American Indian arts-she began to collect baskets, rugs, pottery and silver. After moving to Las Vegas in 1963, Marlis became a career woman, starting at the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority as a file clerk and working for 27 years, becoming the first woman sales executive. Always elegant in dress and style, Marlis represented LVCVA in Chicago for seven years, managing some of the largest accounts. In 1988, she returned to Las Vegas and worked another three years before retiring in her gorgeous condo to a life full of three beloved kitties and an orphaned robin, spaghetti suppers with friends, sewing, weaving, knitting, travel to South America, Europe, and Asia, and her granddaughter, Shu Shu, for whom she could make beautiful clothes and be wonderfully generous. Marlis was creative, practical, ambitious, strong and smart, until Alzheimer's began to steal her away. Marlis is survived by her daughter; granddaughter; brother, Reinhold Haas; nephews, Martin and Eric; and nieces, Elke and Janice. "There goes one classy lady." May she now rest in peace. "I'll miss you, Mom. You were my best friend." There will be a memorial service at 9 a.m. Saturday, June 27, at Paradise Park, 4775 McLeod Drive. In lieu of flowers, please send donations in Marlis' memory to Vegas PBS. For further information contact Suzy at smoser@ix.netcom.com
