Mary Bernice Mosely
September 23, 1932 – June 13, 2023
Mary Bernice Hearn Mosley was born on September 23, 1932 to her parents, William and Ida Hearn. Bernice married the love of her life, J.B. Mosley, and they raised four boys in Chatham,La. Ms. Bernice was known for many things including her love for gardening, flowers, cooking and her love for her family. No matter the occasion that arose in her community, she was quick to prepare tea cakes, cakes and her famous fried chicken. Her grandchildren most enjoyed her rainbow cakes that she made for each of them on their birthdays. She took pride in doing and caring for others. Before having a stroke and entering the nursing home, she would be found preparing meals, assuring her house was spotless clean or sitting on her front porch enjoying the outdoor view with a cup of coffee. Until her last moments, she would brag on “her boys” as she was known for calling them, or would say “I love you” to her family and at any discussion about J.B., she without fail would say “I loved him. He was a good man.” She had no hesitation to pour out her deep love and dote on her family that she was so proud of.
Bernice was peacefully called home to be with her Savior on June 13, 2023 at the age of 90 years old. We rejoice in knowing that she was reunited with J.B. as she longed for.
She is preceded in death by her late husband, J.B. Mosley; grandson, Garry Lane Mosley, Jr. “Rocky”, and a daughter in law, Glenda Mosley. Left to cherish her memory are her four sons: Wayne Mosley, Roy and Cheryl Mosley, Garry and Pam Mosley and Jerry Mosley. Grandchildren: Tina Holbron, Mauri Sneed, Angela Myers, Candi Henderson and Jill Aldy; along with ten great grandchildren.
A graveside service was held on Friday, June 16, 2023 in Chatham Cemetery with Reverend Joel Sneed officiating. Burial followed under the direction of Southern-Edmonds Funeral Home.
