Stanley R. Moen, age 69, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 27, 2020 in Chicago, IL.

 

Stanley was born on September 6th, 1950 to John and Judith Alice Moen (Johannesen) in Brooklyn, New York. He grew up in a loving family with his two older brothers, Kenneth and Herbert Moen.

 

After graduating from Martin Van Buren High School, Queens, NY in 1968, he went on to study Spanish and Secondary Education at Trinity International University, Deerfield, IL.

 

After graduation, he taught at Salem Christian School in Chicago IL for 5 years and then transitioned to using his bilingual skills as a Sr. Human Rights Investigator for the State of Illinois for 39 years leading to his recent retirement in 2017. His love for teaching English as a Second Language or Spanish was apparent with secondary jobs throughout his lifetime as an ESL Instructor at Triton College and Salem Church and a Spanish Language Instructor at Sargent & Lundy.

 

Stanley met his wife Susana (Arteaga) as her ESL instructor in 1973 at Salem Evangelical Free Church. They married two years later on June 21, 1975 and went on to have two children, Christina and Richard. His children remember him as a kind and gentle father who encouraged them to pursue their goals.

 

In addition, Stanley volunteered his time at church and with Renacer Boliviano, Inc. a not-for-profit endowment for needy children and youth in Bolivia, where he was an active member for decades.

 

Throughout his life, he held an unwavering faith in God, and since he loved to converse with any person who crossed his path, he was able to share his faith with those who surrounded him.

Stanley joins his parents, John and Alice in Heaven. He is survived by his wife, Susana, his brothers Ken and Herbie, his children, Christina (Kenny), Richard, and his three grandchildren, Isabella, Gabriela and Mateo.

 

Friends are invited to celebrate Stanley’s life at a visitation on Thursday, July 30th from 3-7 p.m. at Smith-Corcoran Funeral Home, 6150 N. Cicero Ave., Chicago, IL. A private funeral will be held on Friday, July 31st followed by interment in Rosehill Cemetery.  The family would like to thank Northwestern Memorial Hospital and JourneyCare in Glenview, IL for their gentle care of Stanley.
