Iris Mozell Moore Bragdon, 91, of New Braunfels, Texas, peacefully went to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, April 26, 2015. Mozell, as she was known by most, was born May 19, 1923, and married Jesse Ralph Bragdon in 1944. Mozell attended Bowling Green Business School after graduating from high school and went on to work at Republic in Evansville, Indiana making P-47 Thunderbird WWII fighter planes while Ralph served with a tank battalion in Germany. After the war Mozell and Ralph went into business with her parents. In 1956, Mozell was hired in Accounts Payable at Pennwalt Chemical Company in Calvert City, Kentucky and worked there until her retirement in 1991. In 1996, Mozell moved to Conroe, Texas, to live with her only child, Demetria Bragdon Cummins and her family. In 1999, she moved with them to New Braunfels, Texas.

Mrs. Bragdon was a lover of life and a faithful servant of her Lord. She enjoyed meeting new friends and nurturing old friendships. She never met a stranger. Her love of God made it very easy for her to adapt and make lifelong friends no matter where she lived. Mozell enjoyed studying God's word and was active in the United Methodist Women at First United Methodist Church in New Braunfels. She particularly enjoyed the annual rummage sale where she was in charge of the jewelry. She loved her Sunday School Friendship Class and looked forward to their class meetings and outings. Mozell was known by many as "The Hat Lady". She never felt that she was adequately dressed until she had the right hat on to complete her ensemble. But most of all, Mozell loved her family which has grown and grown. She had joy and laughter in her heart and everyone loved her stories about her family.

Mrs. Bragdon is preceded in death by her parents, Judson Irwin and Maybell Moore; her husband, Jesse Ralph Bragdon; her sister, Anna Louise Todd; her son-in-law, Thomas Lane Cummins, and her granddaughter, Heather Ashlea Savoy. Survivors include her daughter, Demetria Cummins of New Braunfels, grandson Judson Thomas Cummins and wife, Sara, of Conroe; granddaughter Jessica Lindsey Cummins of New Braunfels; three great grandchildren, Shon Savoy and fiancé, Lanee Scott of Montgomery, Chloe and Cailyn Cummins of Conroe, and great, great grandson, Casey Bragdon Savoy of Montgomery; son-in-law Philip Savoy; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Someone once said, "when the ones we treasure become a memory, the memory becomes a treasure". Our loved one has left us with many treasured memories, and we are thankful to the good Lord for each of them, and they are many. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, May 9th at 10:00 at the New Braunfels First United Methodist Church. Expressions of sympathy may take the form of contributions to the or Hope Hospice of New Braunfels.
