Ria Fuhrmann Moran
Ria always enjoyed being outdoors. In her youth she participated in many outdoor activities with her family and friends including skiing and hiking. She was a member of the girl guides. In the 1950's she was the secretary at the motorpool for the 6033rd of the AC&W in Wurtzburg, Germany. That's where she met her future husband.
She married 1st Lieutenant Nathan Harrell Moran October 1, 1954 in Wiesbaden, Germany. Although she was Roman Catholic she converted to the church of her husband and attended the First United Methodist Church of Dresden Tennessee. They have two sons, Scott and Kent Moran.
When Nathan, Ria and their two sons returned to the states they were living in Kansas City. They returned to Dresden to take up residence at Moran Place after the death of James Moran III and his wife, Virginia Shumate Moran. Although Ria was not happy about moving to Tennessee she came to love and cherish the Moran home, the history it contained and the friends she made.
