Mary Therese Mosier

11 enero , 195122 julio , 2020

Mary Therese (Timmings) Mosier was born in Dublin, Ireland 69 years ago and joined her adopted family in Fresno, CA before her first birthday. She died unexpectedly but peacefully on July 22, 2020. Mary grew up in Fresno attending elementary school and church at the Shrine of St. Therese and had fond memories of Camp Santa Terasita. She loved swimming, water skiing, horseback riding and summer nights under the stars at Bass Lake. In 1969 Mary graduated from high school at Queen of the Valley in Fresno, California where she was senior class president. Mary went on to put herself through college at Fresno State University where she received a BA degree in Social Work. Mary began working at Valley Alarm Company in Fresno in 1972 and had various clerical positions there over the next 18 years. Mary left the business and went to work for the Diocese of Fresno at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in 1990. By then Mary had met and married her husband, Michael, in 1979 and became mother to daughter, Lauren, in 1981 and son, Evan, in 1986. Mary was happy to be in the nearby parish office as her children attended St. Anthony's School. Mary made many friends while serving as Parish Administrator and always felt the importance of her service to others. Mary retired in 2015, but did not entirely stop working. She volunteered at several organizations and worked part time as a receptionist at a hair salon. Mary loved to share photos of her grandchildren, Liam and Cora, and was excited to announce the birth of a new grandchild, Juniper, in May of 2020. Mary touched the lives of many people. She always showed empathy and compassion, finding a way to brighten someone's day. She had a silly and mischievous side which made her a joy to be around. She cherished her friends and was deeply loved by them and her family. Due to pandemic concerns a celebration of Mary's life will be postponed indefinitely.

Mary loved people. The way she handled her responsibilities as Business Administrator at St. Anthony's, with around 30 ministries, all asking her for this and that, was so admirable. She was always respectful to everyone. The word at St. Anthony's was "Call Mary."
She did a beautiful job representing St Anthony's. The world lost a loving and kind person.

With love, admiration, and prayers, as God brings you to His home,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences. I worked with Mary in the parish office for several years and was always impressed with her strong faith, passionate work ethic and willingness to drop what she was doing to help anyone in need.

Our faith community lost a beautiful gem. Even now, so many years removed from our time as co-workers, I am often reminded of Mary driving a golf cart in her hat, transporting elderly parishioners to and from the parking lot, to our parish carnival in the sweltering Fresno heat.

Mary also had the ability to snap a reception or luncheon together, often at a moments notice, for the needs of the parish office with “grace under pressure”. I would often watch her in awe as she lead by example with humor and love.

Rest easy and in peace, my old friend. Your hard work and love never went unnoticed. You were appreciated and admired more than you will ever know.

My deepest condolences to all the family for the loss of your loved one.
I met Mary at St. Anthony's church through the many parish ministries. I volunteered at the church and was always pleased to know that Mary was there to support our ministries no matter what day of the week it was. Mary was dedicated to the church and the people she served and always willing to do what needed to be done.
May her soul rest in peace. And may God bring you comfort through this difficult time.

Mary is so fun and a great friend to all. I enjoy seeing her so much that I have two different tunes to sing when I greet her. Everyone will smile when they think of Mary. So sorry for us all to lose such an angel on earth. Peace and healing light to you: Mike, Lauren, Evan, family and besties.

I love you Mary Mosier Full of Composure!

Mary brightened my day and made me smile and appreciate her zest for life. She was a joy to be around, and made you immediately comfortable and happy in her presence. She was a special person with a joyful and jubilant light about her. I will miss seeing her at Bass Lake and other family events. My heart goes out to Evan and Lauren and Mike.

Dear Mosier Family,
My heart goes out to you for the tremendous loss you must be feeling. Mary was a great blessing to all of us whose lives she touched.
Mary and I were classmates at Queen of the Valley and shared many entertaining times together. I especially looked forward to Friday nights at the Timmings' house in the winters when Mrs. Timmings would fix tuna casserole and Mary and I would get up early on Saturday to catch the bus to China Peak for skiing. Lots of laughs and happy memories!
Mary was there for my most important life occasions - the loss of my parents, my wedding, and over the years we always remembered each other's birthdays and enjoyed catching up. Little did I anticipate that I wouldn't be receiving her birthday wishes this September.
My husband John and I enjoyed visits with Mary and Mike in the early years of our marriages when we used to visit Fresno from the Bay Area. Great memories.
God bless you all and may your wonderful memories bring you comfort. Mary is certainly in heaven and watching over us -

Dear Mosier Family,
There are no words to describe Mary. One phone call and she would be there to help. I don’t believe the word “No” existed in Mary’s vocabulary. I saw her almost daily at SAS and always felt better after we parted. We would have quick lunches on her lunch hour. She was so happy Lauren when you got married and blessed her with grandchildren. Evan your mother will be your baby’s guardian angel. What a blessing she was here for the birth! My heart is so saddened to know I will never hear her laugh that contagious laugh! Mike I can remember when her mother was at the Nazareth House and she would say her mother thought you took her on a cruise and loved it. LOL Mary I know you sailed straight in the arms of God Our Father! Bon Voyage my dear friend!

We realize that the loss of such a wonderful wife and mother is devastating. We are saddened by this tragedy and pray for God's comfort to alleviate her family's grief. We are not without hope, however, because Christian's never say goodbye for the last time.

What a joy to have spent time with cousin Mary throughout the many years of our friendship. I treasured our email exchanges, the latest being about her new baby granddaughter. Mary will always be remembered for her joy, quick wit, incredible kindness, and love. Our family was so blessed to have Mary in our lives, she will always be remembered with the love we carry for her in our hearts.
Deepest sympathy, prayers, and love to the Mosier family.
