Obituary-Phyllis S. Mozeley



Phyllis Mozeley, age 76, of Charlotte, N.C., died Aug. 8, 2010 at Ocean Isle Beach, N.C. Mozeley was born in Charlotte on March 17, 1934, daughter of the late Rosser and Lillian Simpson. She was a charter member of Christ United Methodist Church, a graduate of North Mecklenburg High School and played on the varsity basketball team, was an avid golfer and a quilter of hand-stitched quilts. She was a member of the Tennessee Walking Horse Association and a former owner of a World Grand Champion in 2007. Although Phyllis Mozeley never showed her beloved Tennessee Walkers, she could often be seen ringside cheering on her granddaughter, Megan, or son, Steve Mozeley. She was Megan's greatest fan and always offered words of encouragement and advice for the ring.

Mozeley had also been scorekeeper for the Little League and Pony League baseball in Oakdale and was secretary and treasurer for D. R. Mozeley Inc. General Contractors. She was a great cook and enjoyed cooking for her family and loved to fish. She was a very loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and was a caregiver and mentor to her children and many other people and was well respected.

Survivors include her husband of 58 years, D. R. (Dick) Mozeley; daughters, Jennie Simmons and husband M. T. of Gainesville, Ga., Judy Brown and husband, Derek of Charlotte; sons, David Mozeley Jr. and Steve Mozeley of Stanley, N.C.; grandchildren, Amy Howard, Laura Maultsby, Emily Brown, and Megan Mozeley; great grandchildren, Caroline Jennie Howard and Makenzie and Katelyn Maultsby; sister, Barbara McQueen of Aiken, S.C.; brothers, Robert Simpson and wife, Betty of Flat Rock, N.C. and A. D. Simpson of Huntersville, N.C. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Delores Blythe.

Memorials may be made to the Christ UMC Help Fund, 8020 Bellhaven Blvd., Charlotte, NC 282l6.
