She was born in Datchet, England, daughter of Francis B. and Laura (McAlery) Parry and settled in New York City when she first arrived in the United States.
During World War II, she served in the British Admiralty where she vividly remembered being bombed and shot at with machine guns.

Moyna worked as an executive secretary throughout her working career. She was also a member of All Saint's Church.
Moyna enjoyed spending summer vacations at Watch Hill with her daughter. She also enjoyed shopping and spending time on the beach, which was one of her favorite places. In later years, the family enjoyed visiting and being visited by her British relatives.
She is survived by her daughter Ann L. Ermshausen of Worcester and several cousins in England. She was predeceased by her brother John Parry and his wife Ann who lived in England.
God bless you and we will miss you.
