Diane Moulds

Moulds, Diane Bogert, 77, most recently of Hudson, Florida, passed away at Bayonet Point Hospital, Hudson, on December 7, 2022, surrounded by her husband and daughter.  Born in Paterson, New Jersey, Diane was raised there and in Pompano Beach, Florida. She graduated from Pompano Beach Senor High School, and then continued on to the University of Florida, graduating with a Bachelor's Degree in Education with Honors.  She was always proud to be a Gator.  For many years, St. Petersburg, Florida was Diane's home, followed by 12 years enjoying life in Baton Rouge, Louisiana before returning to Florida in 2021. After college, Diane spent years raising her three children from her first marriage.  She sought to guide her children to love Jesus and learning.  Diane taught Kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and fourth grade throughout her teaching career.  Canterbury School of Florida (St. Petersburg), First Baptist Christian School (Pinellas Park) and The Brighton School of Baton Rouge, Louisiana were among the schools where she educated and influenced students.  Diane was a caring teacher who loved and encouraged all her students.  In 1991, Diane met Robert (Bob) Moulds, Sr.  who describes her as "the light of my life".  They married on December 23, 1991, and shared many adventures during their almost 31 years of marriage. 

Her parents, Eleanore and Edwin Lloyd Bogert, and her daughter Amy Kruck Moulds preceded Diane in death. 

She is survived by her husband, Bob Moulds; daughter, Jennifer Kruck; son, Eric Kruck (Tara); brother, Brett Bogert (Lee); nieces, Anne Meade (John) and Rebekah Weed (Patrick); nephew, Benjamin Bogert; brother-in-law, James Moulds (Gail); niece, Brooke Barnes (Brandon); stepsons, Rob Moulds (Valerie) and Ryan Moulds (Rachel); step grandchildren, Anna, Rankin, Rowan and Reeve Moulds; granddaughter, Caitlyn Foster (Sam) and a great-grandson. Diane is always described as sweet and kind.  She wanted Jesus’ light to shine through her after becoming a born-again Christian at 15 years old.  Diane loved a good cookie every day, the beach, dogs (especially her dog, Ginger), reading, and Bible study groups with friends.  Over the years, she baked bread, created fun experiences for her children, was a leader of La Leche League as a young mother, joined Daughters of the American Revolution, enjoyed a variety of crafts, and collected spotted cows and angels.  Diane is especially remembered for her love of her family and her Savior Lord Jesus. 

Family and friends will gather Thursday, December 15, 2022 from 5-8pm at Anderson/McQueen Funeral Home, 2201 MLK Street North with funeral services the following morning Friday, December 16, 2022 at 11am.  Interment will follow services at Calvary Cemetery.
