Stella C. Moss

Stella Cross Moss, 89, of Muscle Shoals, formerly of Hillsboro and Leighton, Alabama, passed away on May 29, 2014, at ECM hospital after a short illness. Visitation will be on Saturday, May 31, 2014, from noon-1 p.m. at Colbert Memorial Chapel with service beginning at 1 p.m. Brother Ted Vafeas will be officiating.

She was preceded in death by her husband, James Carroll Moss Sr., her parents, Vera Moran and John Henry Cross, of Hillsboro and Leighton, Alabama, sister, Katherine Cross Flannigan, of Leighton, Alabama, and brothers, infant Lacy, Paul Glenn Cross, of Leighton, Alabama, Enos Almon Cross, of Hillsboro, Alabama, and Eugene Cross, of Decatur, Alabama and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

She is survived by her son, James "Jimmy" Carroll Moss Jr. (Christine), of Muscle Shoals, Alabama; nieces, Mary Ann Weathers, Martha Patterson, Kathy Kilburn, and Beth Hammons; nephews, Ed, Steve, John, Lakin, Andy, David, and Dwight Cross; brother-in-law, Douglas Flannigan; and sister-in-law, Bernice Cross.

She was of the Baptist faith. She was a Sunday school teacher at Sockwell Baptist Church. She loved reading her Bible and writing poems and telling stories. She was a great source to friends and family for inspiring faith and encouragement and an example of kindness and forgiveness. She was a great cook and no one ever left her home empty handed.

The family would like to thank Alacare Home Health and Hospice, Wellington Place in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, palliative care physician, Dr. Robert J. Webb, and the Six West and ER nurses at ECM Hospital for their excellent care and concern.
