Sonja E. Mosley Obituary
Sonja Evelyne (Benson) "Sunnie" Mosley died peacefully after an extended illness at her home in Assonet, Dec. 15, 2013. Sonja was 68 years old. She leaves her husband, Francis T. Mosley of 45 years; her daughter, Barbara J. (Mosley) Doyle and husband Joseph E. Doyle of Belmont; her son, Scott A. Mosley and wife Elizabeth (Deming) Mosley of Providence, R.I.; and her grandchildren, Jason Doyle, Samantha Mosley, John Mosley, Suzanne Mosley and William Mosley; and three great-grandchildren, Azhelia, Mason and Isis. Also a brother, Reed Peterson; and many nieces and nephews. Sonja was born in Boston, Nov. 13, 1945, to the late Vincent Benson and Evelyne (Lincoln) Benson. She was the stepdaughter of the late William Arnold. She grew up in Randolph and raised her family in Brockton. When her children grew up, she moved to Assonet, where she lived for the past 20 years. Sonja worked and retired from the Paul A. Dever School. Her lifes work both professionally and personally was that of a caregiver. As a child of God, she was very thankful for her children, her grandchildren and her many friends, and especially for her health team over these many years who helped her live life to the fullest. She was often heard thanking God for her many blessings and sending out requests for prayers for others. She had helped many people throughout the years with her love and support, giving nature and optimistic view of life. She always had the time, always had the answers and always had the kind words and a smile to make everyone feel better no matter their circumstances. Sunnie was a staunch Boston sports fan. She supported all of her local teams, from the Celtics and Red Sox to the Bruins, but her favorite team was most definitely the Patriots. She enjoyed using her motor home to take friends and family to the home games and often had parties at her home to watch the away games. She loved traveling both domestically and internationally, cooking, playing cards, bird watching, theatre, gardening and entertaining. She especially loved being surrounded by family and friends. The world is a little less bright without Sonja in it, but her family knows she is at peace now. Calling hours will be held at 11 a.m., followed by a memorial service and celebration of Sunnies life Dec. 28, 2013, at South Coast Chapel, 158 Middleboro Road, East Freetown. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in Sonjas name to Saint Annes Hospital Hudner Oncology Center, 795 Middle Street, Fall River, MA 02721. www.southcoastchapel.com
