Mary Ann Thorton Mosley, daughter of the late Josephine Oliver was born on January 21, 1943 in Richland, Georgia. God called her home on February 19, 2017.

Mosley; a loving, devoted granddaughter, Chelicy Mosley; a grandson Ryan Wingfield; a brother, Samuel (Veronica) Oliver and a sister, Bessie Oliver; a special cousin, Earline Walden; two sisters-in-law, Linda Mosley Gordon of Occoquan, Virginia and Jean Winn of South Hill; one brother-in-law, Wilkey Mosley of Chase City; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
