Carla Mae L. Ferguson was called to Heaven, to be with the Lord, March 21, 2023 on her 80th birthday, after years of living with, and battling, several life-debilitating medical conditions.

Visitation was held Sunday, March 26, at Morris Funeral Home in Guttenberg and before services at the church.

Funeral services were Monday, March 27, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Guttenberg, conducted by Pastor Michael Ashman. Burial was in Guttenberg City Cemetery.

Carla was born March 21, 1943, in Guttenberg, to James and Violetta (Herzog) Moser. Carla grew up on their family farm in Osterdock and graduated from Guttenberg High School in 1961. On March 3, 1962, Carla was united in marriage to Robert Ferguson at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Guttenberg.

Carla was definitely a “people person.” Carla did day care for many families for many years while raising her and Bob’s two sons, Jim and Scott. During those years, Carla also taught kindergarten Sunday School classes at St. John’s Lutheran Church. In later years, Carla worked and managed local retail businesses while sharing her knowledge, wit, and “gift-of-gab” that kept everyone coming back for more. Family and friends were very important to her.

Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Bob, of 61 years; sons, Jim (Jennie Gode) Ferguson of Harris, Minn., Scott (Dawn) Ferguson of Center Point; four grandchildren, Truman Ferguson, Samantha (Jerad) Jirak, Andrea Ferguson, and Docker Ferguson; two great-grandchildren, Dahlia and Monroe Jirak; a brother, Bob (Jackie Kieper) Moser; a sister, Jeanie (Dave) Berns; brother- and sister in-laws, Linda (Bruce) Bothwell, Norm (Lois) Ferguson, Darlene Hopper, Mary (Carl) Borrett, Len (Roseann) Ferguson, Don Ferguson, Sharon Crumrine, and many nieces and nephews.

Carla was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Dale Moser, and a brother-in-law, Lynn Hopper.

Information is available at Memorials may be sent to Morris Funeral Home (in care of the deceased), 207 S. First St., Guttenberg, IA 52052.
