Clara Belle Mosier
November 14, 1932 – May 28, 2019
Clara B. Mosier, 86, of Arrowsmith, passed away Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at Heritage Health, Normal. She was born November 14, 1932, the daughter of Fred and Letha (Dibble) Coyle.
Clara is survived by the love of her life, Rex Mosier, whom she married on December 18, 1954. Together they raised 5 children, Dan (Marsha) Edgington of Rock Island, Rebecca (Chuck) Wheeler of Charleston, Jim (Jane Bateman) Edgington of Rantoul, Rodney (Roxanne) Mosier of Colfax, and Todd (Laura) Mosier of LeRoy. Clara has 11 surviving grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Ollan Coyle and her sister Karen (Chuck) Goben. Clara was preceded in death by her parents, a granddaughter Erica Edgington, a sister Wilma Meyer and a brother Wayne Coyle.
She spent most of her married life raising her children and farming side by side with her husband. She later began her career as a rural mail carrier.
Clara was a very devoted wife. She made delicious pies and readily shared her crust recipe with anyone that asked. For visitors that dropped by unexpectedly, Clara provided a full meal at the drop of a hat and no one left her home hungry. Many family members were given afghans that she lovingly crocheted. She tried her hand at painting and many pieces of her artwork are hanging in her children’s homes.
Clara’s memorial service will be held on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at East Lawn Funeral Home, Bloomington, with a visitation one hour prior to service at East Lawn Funeral Home. Burial to follow at East Lawn Memorial Gardens.
The family would like to thank Heritage Health for the excellent care. Special thanks to Dee Lancaster, who provided home healthcare above and beyond.

I always remember Clara-From hauling grain into Sabina Elevator and then our Mailman at Sabina and then seeing her around. She was always very nice to me and smiling a lot and just enjoyed life I was coming up but have to help Eric finish planting beans. She will be missed but good memories
