Deborah C. Mosley

In loving memory of our beloved Deborah Charlene Mosley, 62, of Newport News, VA peacefully passed away on January 21, 2022.

Deborah Charlene Hart was born January 27, 1959 to Earnest Hart and the late Ollie Mae Hart in Mobile, Alabama. After she graduated from Williamson High School in Mobile, Alabama in 1978, Deborah united in marriage to her high school sweetheart, Melvin Mosley on June 15, 1979. They were together for over 42 years and have three wonderful children: Antonio (Tony), Melvin Jr., and Jeana.

In 1995, after supporting her husband throughout his military career to include numerous stateside assignments such as Fort Bragg, NC; Fort Lewis, WA; three tours in Germany, and Fort Eustis, VA; Deborah and Melvin established their home in Newport News, VA.

Deborah worked tirelessly as a dedicated childcare provider until her retirement in March of 2021. Deborah was admired and respected by her supervisors, coworkers, and parents of the children she cared for. She had the beautiful gift of patience and kindness as she worked with children and their parents daily. Her coworkers enjoyed eating her southern styled cabbage at event gatherings and special occasions.

Deborah loved Jehovah God and his son Jesus Christ with all her heart and was an active member of the Denbigh North Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She was an avid reader of the Bible and loved her congregation family. She especially enjoyed sharing in the ministry with the younger generation. She was also well known and beloved in the Atmore, Alabama congregation.

Deborah had a passion for interior design, personal styling, and gardening. Her special garden included a variety of plants such as herbs, peppers, and flowers. She liked doing crossword and jigsaw puzzles. She enjoyed traveling to places such as the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Hollywood, Las Vegas, Canada, Bahamas, Mexico, and many European countries to include her last trip to Spain in 2019.

Deborah is preceded in death by her mother, Ollie Mae Hart; and grandmother, Cleo Sealey-Wright. She is survived by her husband, Melvin Mosley Sr., sons: Antonio D. Mosley and Melvin Mosley, Jr. (Maryam Ulomi); daughter, Jeana C. Mosley; and siblings: Regina (David) McCants, Janet (Vincent) Mathews, Michael A. Hart, and Roderick J. Hicks; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, and friends.

The family will receive friends from 12:00PM to 1:00 PM at Bucktrout Funeral Home on Friday, January 28, 2022 with service and burial to follow.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions  may be made in Deborah’s name to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

    To the Mosely family, Mr. Moe, Antonio, Melvin Jr., and Jeana. My deepest condolences to you all and other family members. May you continue to receive all the love and support you will need to comfort you from your family, friends, and co-workers. I too really enjoyed visiting your sweet & lovely wife, my Sister-friend, Deborah. I especially enjoyed out Meeting for Field Service, singing together, and our meaningful and heartfelt prayers and conversations with laughter together. I enjoyed listening to her as she related many past stories to me while remembering her dear Mother., as well as, other interest of hers. My prayers are with your family as your family to find even more comfort from the all time important provision provided for us all in God's word @ Revelations 21:4. This will surely be a time we all should look especially forward to for it is certain to come because God, our loving Father, will fulfill all His promises. We can place our love, hope, and trust in full confidence on Him and His trust worthy name to aid us & guide us. A real and sure hope for our future. Also available is jw.org, a trusted site, for all people especially when you will need the comfort from a relatable source for any situation you may find yourself in life. This site can provide you with answers to all your questions and/or interest. A very helpful brochure can come of some aid when you just want to read in your quiet time, entitled, "When Someone You Love Dies." Once again, my prayers are with your family, the Mosely family & further, for your loss.

    While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you. May Jehovah the God of all comfort continue to comfort your family.
