Mrs. Mosher worked for most of her career in higher education institutions, including Cornell University, Toledo University and Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, Pa. She and her husband, Kenny, served together at Baptist Bible College for over 25 years where she endeared countless students with her sincere concern and active support — all with a smile and a prayer. Her faith in Jesus Christ and her commitment to share His love was evident to all she served.

Dean) Everhart of Newfield, New York; Sharon (Dr. Craig) Wilson of Clarks Summit, Pa.; and Jean Mosher of Hummelstown, Pa.; nine grandchildren, and twenty-two great-grandchildren. She is also survived by sisters, Wilma Foster of Apalachin, New York; Alice Weston and Mary (Albert) Reed of Vestal; and a brother, Mark (Feb) Traver of Owego, New York.
