It is with a sad and lonely heart and with the help of God, I will try to write the obituary of our mommy, Gracie
(Combs) Mosley. There are no words I can say that would tell you how we children all feel since our mommy left
us, only someone who has lost a mother would know. Mommy was the daughter of Green Combs and Melaine
(Stamper) Combs. She was born on June 30, 1918. God came and took her home on September 16, 2003.
Mom was 85 years, 2 months and 16 days old at the time of her passing. Mommy grew up and married Lee
Mosley. I believe God joined them together; they loved each other so much. After Daddy died Mommy was
never satisfied here anymore. God came and got Daddy in 1989. Mommy and Daddy had 9 children, 2 infant
daughters preceded them in death.
Surviving are four daughters, Joyce (Trigger) Casebolt, Anna Lee (Alger) Casebolt, Betty Childers, and
Wilma (Keith) Griffith and three sons, Charles (Judy) Mosley, John (Carlene) Mosley and James (Pauline)
Mosley. Also surviving are 27 grandchildren, and 51 great grandchildren. Two grandchildren preceded them in
death, one infant grand-daughter and Kathy Casebolt.
Mommy loved all her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, daughter-in-laws and son-in-laws very much.
Also preceding mommy in death are four brothers and one sister. Mommy was such a sweet person,
everyone who knew her knew what I mean.
She loved people and treated them with love. Mommy had cancer for about three years before God came
and took her home. She fell asleep in the arms of Jesus so peacefully. Mommy joined the Old Regular Baptist
church in 1947. Her membership was at the Ivy Point Church. She loved her church and worked hard for the
church. She loved to cook and feed the people. Her life proved that she was a true born Christian, by her every
day life and the love she showed everyone.
Mommy lived to see two of her daughters baptized into the church, one son, one daughter-in-law and one son-
in-law. She was so happy to see that.
I could go on and on and write so many things about mommy, but there are no words that I ca write to tell
you just how precious our mommy was to all of us children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and how
empty our hearts are since she went away, but, I believe with all my heart, Mommy and Daddy are together with
their granddaughters, their two infant daughters, and all their family and friends that have gone on to heaven.
Mommy has no more worries, heartaches, or pain, I believe she’s just waiting for that great resurrection day,
when body and soul will reunite and be taken up to Heaven.
To my brothers and sisters and all the family, if you want to see Mommy, Daddy and Kathy again, turn to
Jesus and beg for forgiveness for the heart and God will hear you.
Goodbye mommy for a while, soon I’ll be with you in Heaven, where we will never part again. We all love and
miss you, sweet mommy.
Written by your daughter and sister in the Lord, Wilma.
