Evelyn's Story

Text size

Evelyn Zorada (White) Moss, daughter of Willard and Hattie (Bertleson) White was born on September 9, 1934 on the Bertleson Homestead near Mutual, Oklahoma. She departed from this life on August 11, 2015 at her home in Vici, Oklahoma. Evelyn attended Pleasant Valley Grade School, and later graduated from Mutual High School in 1952. She was united in marriage on February 15, 1953 to Donald Glenn Moss at Brother Rollie Cunningham’s home. To this union six sons, and two daughters were born, Danny, Dana, Max, Monte, Vickie, Bryon, Tim, and Todd. Evelyn always had a large garden, canning and freezing the produce for her family, and brethren whom she entertained often. She always had chickens to butcher, teaching all of her kids the art of butchering and cutting them up. She helped and encouraged all of her children to learn to play the piano, singing along. She was a great encouragement for her children in the participation of 4-H and music, where many outstanding trips and awards were received. Homemade ice cream was a steady treat in the summer, as long as someone would crank! Thanksgiving and Christmas were special, as she looked forward to all of her children and their family’s coming. Her greatest joy was when the first ones arrived, and the last light was turned off. Evelyn is survived by her children: Danny Moss and wife Darlene, Dana Thompson and husband Randy, Max Moss, Monte Moss, Vickie Salisbury and husband Junior, Tim Moss and wife Nicole, and Todd Moss and wife Renessa, all of Vici area; twenty seven grandchildren; twenty six great-grandchildren; brother-in-law Claude Clark, sister-in-law Ramona Moss Walker; numerous nieces and nephews, and a host of brethren and friends. Evelyn is preceded in death by her husband Donald Moss, son Bryon Moss, her parents, Willard and Hattie White, siblings Vea Dick and Seward, Alvin White and Margery, Lewis White and Vivian, Carol Plummer and Buddy, Rosa Castor and Von, Roy White and Karen, Hazel White and two infant siblings, Donald’s family Ray Moss and wife Maggie, Theda Cramer and husband Ralph, Wesley Moss and wife Marie, Theo Randolph and husband Ernest, Josephine McAlary and husband Denver, Ophelia Moss, Vivian White and husband Lewis, Elsie Dean Lee and husband Floyd, Christine Clark, Laverle Moss, Gerald Moss, Etta Nere, son-in-law Dale McGaha, daughters-in-law Peggy Clift and Susan Moss, grandchildren Ty Salisbury, Chad Moss, and Garrett Moss. Evelyn will be remembered for birthday presents of either Devils Food or Angel Food cakes, homemade ice cream, her huge cookies. She loved assembling with the Brethren, singing, and family reunions. Services were held August 15, 2015 at 10:00 am at the General Assembly & Church of the Firstborn, Vici, Oklahoma with burial following in Sunnyside Cemetery, Vici, Oklahoma.
