Feb. 5, 1928 — Feb. 21, 2014

Idell D. Moulton, physical therapist, homemaker, wife and beloved mother to three children, and Gram Gram to four grandchildren passed away in Davis Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, at age 86.

She was born on Feb. 5, 1928, in Ephrata, Wash., to Idell and Grace Dudley and grew up in the small town of Wilson Creek, Wash. She met Jack Moulton at a Washington State College dance social and they married prior to moving to Minnesota where she received her degree in physical therapy and her husband received his doctorate in veterinary pathology.

In 1953 they moved to Davis, where Jack joined the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis. Idell worked part-time as a physical therapist and was a homemaker raising their three children. Idell, Jack and the family spent many wonderful years abroad, initially in Cambridge, England, and then in Kenya and Zimbabwe. While in Kenya, Idell helped her Jack with the Education Abroad program, hosting American holidays and a “home away from home” for the students.

Once all the kids were raised, Idell returned to physical therapy working with Home Health in Yolo County. She was known as a miracle worker for stroke patients whose Doctors had given a poor prognosis for recovery. After her husband retired they moved full-time to their vacation home in Mendocino, where Idell continued working in physical therapy and Jack furthered his love of oil painting.

After spending seven years in Mendocino, they returned to Davis, where Idell worked with the Yolo County Adult Day Care program and Jack continued his love of painting and working on his book. Gram Gram and Poppy (Jack) also enjoyed spending time with their grandchildren in Davis. Her beloved husband Jack passed away in May 2003.

After developing some health problems, Idell moved to Santa Barbara to be near to her daughter Collette and her family, where she spent seven wonderful years. Idell returned to Davis, where she lived at the University Retirement Center, passing after two years. Her grandson Colin visited often and he would play “golden oldies” on the piano for the residents.

Idell is survived by her older siblings, Jeanne Humphrey (Marty) of Yakima, Wash., and John Dudley of Seattle; her children, Bill Moulton (Alexandra) of San Anslelmo, Sally Borges (Salvador) of Davis and daughter Collette Czuleger (Jerry) of Santa Barbara; and grandchildren Colin and Julia of Davis, and Sarah and Brooke of Santa Barbara.
