Not just a pilot, Ray was also an Elder of the Fayette Presbyterian Church, where he taught Sunday School and Bible class, as well as a boy scout and cub scout leader, and an active member in 2 chapters of EAA.

    Mary Carolyn (Moroni) Farrell, born Nov. 24, 1935, formerly of Panama City, passed from the beloved arms of her husband and sons into the loving arms of Jesus on Sept. 11, 2016 in Duluth, Minnesota.
Born in Duluth, raised in the small town of Ely, Mary Carolyn attended the College of St. Scholastica, graduating in 1957 with a B.A. in Medical Technology. While working at St. Mary's Hospital in Duluth, she married Kenneth Farrell who became employed as a pilot for Delta Air Lines. They were married more than 58 years and she followed his career. She and Kenneth retired to Panama City, Florida, in 1992.
Mary Carolyn dedicated her intelligence, her emotions and many creative talents toward her family and household. She upheld high standards. She was a cook, chef, baker and immaculate bottle washer. Annually, she made potica, antipasto and award-winning jams. Her pies were masterpieces. In years past she played the piano. She loved to sing. She designed and made clothing, quilts and knitted blankets. She earned Life Master status in Duplicate Bridge. She had studied Latin, German, and French. She furthered her education to become a certified teacher of biology in order to teach her young sons. She balanced her checkbooks to the penny. She was a person who knew austerity, congenial warmth, and the joy of a generous spirit. She was touched by beauty and quickness. Her smile was contagious. She loved to laugh. She loved her family and her many friends.
She was a passionate fighter for her beliefs. Born with an abundance of life and sensitivity, she will be dearly missed.
She is survived by husband Kenneth, their three sons - Jeffry, Tim, Ken, their wives and six grandchildren. Survivors also include sisters Barbara Johnson and Christine Moroni, both of Minnesota, as well as brother Peter Greg Moroni of Naples, Florida.
Mass of Christian Burial Friday September 16, 2016 in Cathedral of Our Lady of the Rosary.
