Gainesville - Cordella Mott, age 96 of Gainesville, FL, went to be with the Lord on Thursday August 28, 2014. She was born in Hampton, FL on October 4, 1917, to W.A. and Rita Brown. Mrs. Mott was preceded in death by her husband L.A. Mott, Sr, and is survived by her son L. A. Mott, Jr. of Jacksonville, her daughters Sandra Ann Jergins of Plant City, FL and Jacqueline Brown of Alachua, plus nine grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.
Mrs. Mott was loved by all, endearing herself to grandchildren, and neighborhood children, by playing board games, softball, you name it.... She did it ! Mrs. Hospitality should have been her middle name. When people visited her home, even unexpectedly, she warmly greeted them asking, 'What can I get you to eat ?'. She was charitable, working for the March of Dimes procuring many donations with her kind Southern voice. She was involved in the P.T.A., being a homeroom mother, Bible class teacher, and taking homeless children into her home.
She loved watching and feeding wild birds, flower gardening, with her specialties being 10 foot poinsettias and colorful hydrangeas, which surrounded her home and garage. She watched all the Gator games on TV, cheering them on fervently, and especially Tim Tebow.
Funeral Services for Mrs. Mott will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday August 30, 2014 at the Milam Funeral Home Chapel, with a visitation one hour prior to the service. Interment will be private for the family. Arrangements are under the care of MILAM FUNERAL AND CREMATION SERVICES 311 South Main Street Gainesville, FL 32601 (352) 376-5361.
