OBITUARY-THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

OLDEST WOMAN SETTLER

Mrs. Mildred Ayres Moser, 81, resident of Glendale 69 years and the oldest woman settler in Glendale, died yesterday at her home, 611 East Acacia. A native of Iowa, Mrs. Moser came with her parents to California in 1883 and settled on what is now Central Avenue in the then town Tropico. At that time the tract on which the Ayres family home was built consisted mostly of barley and strawberries. Mrs. Moser's father, Samuel A. Ayres, who operated a grocery store in Los Angeles, built his home at 1121 South Central. The home is still standing as is the Tropico Presbyterian Church of which Mrs. Moser was a member.
Mrs. Moser and her mother are credited with the naming of Central Avenue and also of the laying out of Park Avenue which now is Chevy Chase Drive.
In 1907, Mrs. Moser and married in tropico and her husband, Charles E. Moser, was employed by the Glendale Water Department at a pumping station near what now is Maple Park.
Mr. and Mrs. Moser built their home which still stands at 611 East Acacia. Site of the home was a part of a tract of several acres owned by Mr. Moser and his brother. Acacia then was known as Tenth Avenue.
She is survived by two sons, Robert N. Moser of Glendale and Charles M. Moser of LaCanada; a brother, Edgar S. Ayres of Glendale.
Interment will take place at Forest Lawn Memorial Park.
