TUSCALOOSA Delphine "Dusti" Moser Deaver, known to family and friends as "Dusti," died peacefully at home, Sunday morning, September 1, 2013. A Worship Service of Remembrance will be 2 p.m. Saturday, September 7, 2013 at Covenant Presbyterian Church with a reception following in the church Fellowship Hall.

Dusti was born in Madison County, North Carolina, and was a graduate of Warren Wilson College, Swannanoa, N.C., and Berea College, Berea, Ky. She attended Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Ga., and was a Commissioned Lay Pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA).

Dusti was a long-time member of Covenant Presbyterian Church, where she served as director of Christian Education, Youth Leader, Sunday school teacher, Women's Bible Study leader, Session member, and choir member. She also served churches in Alabama and Georgia as a Christian Educator, was Synod director of the Theological Education Fund, and served as group leader for Youth Conferences in Montreat, N.C. for many years. She led the Tithe of Life program for General Assembly, mentoring young people in anticipation of Christian service. Many of those she affectionately called "my kids" are themselves now pastors, music leaders, educators, and otherwise involved in Christian witness in their vocations.

Survivors include her husband Dr. Frank Deaver; children, Cody Moser (Christi Parsons), Lydia Hendrix (Ben), Paul Deaver (Helen); and grandchildren, Paul Moser, Amanda Moser, Laura Raye Hendrix May (Jacob), Leslie Hendrix Franklin (Matt), Molly Deaver, and William Anderson Deaver.
