Patricia Moffett

In 1940, Dar and Marge Dorgan, Ruth Gustafson, a former teacher in Bradford, Rosemary Moran and Patricia Moffett, of Knoxville IL, started on their journey west to attend the San Francisco World’s Fair. On this trip, the girls had a letter from Henry Ford to his representatives in California and another letter from Darryl B. Zannuk, director of 20th Century-Fox Film Colony inviting them to be his guests while in California. Again they had passes to all shows and entertainments at the Exposition.    After attending Monmouth and Brown’s Business College, Patricia married Maurice Bjorling in 1946.  She and her husband moved to a farm in Gilson Illinois in 1948 where she currently lives in 2012 with her son.  She is an avid quilter and has been active in the DAR and is a life member of the Bishop Hill Vasa Lodge.
