Moseley, Victoria
1929 - 2017
Victoria A. Moseley (Vance), passed away Sunday morning, October 29, 2017 in the Health Center of Friendship Village, Dublin, Ohio. She is survived by her husband of sixty-six years, Philip H. Moseley; their daughter, Ann E. (Christopher) Carlson of Upper Arlington; son, Gregory P. (Anne) Moseley of Houston, Texas; grandchildren, Amanda Carlson, Bradley (Megan) Carlson and Scott Moseley. Born in Findlay, Ohio on September 19, 1929 to Walter S. Vance, a USMC boxing champion and Mabel E. Vance, an elementary school principal, Vickie, grew up with her three younger brothers Miles, David and George Vance. At age sixteen she moved in with her grandfather to keep his home and to continue school. She graduated from Findlay High School and Bowling Green State University. On July 1, 1951 she married Philip, son of Harold M. and Margaret B. Moseley. In 1959, with their daughter Ann, they moved from Lima, Ohio to Lincoln Village in Columbus until moving to Dublin in the mid 1980's. Vickie and Phil have been residents at Friendship Village of Dublin for the past seven years. Vickie was involved with Christian education throughout her life. Whether it was as a member of Lincoln Baptist Church (Lima), Columbia Heights United Methodist Church, First Community Church in Grandview, Trinity United Methodist Church in Upper Arlington, or MethesCo , she actively pursued Biblical study and continued to teach adults for many years. Her great passion was learning about the impact women would have on the early formation of the Christian faith and how to put those lessons to work in the modern church. It was in this time she had a true epiphany, spurred on by younger women that she wanted to emulate and simultaneously mentor. She decided not to pursue a post graduate degree in Theology but chose to undertake a mission of service. As she would say, "I needed to put my faith into action... and this changed my life". In the following years, she would undertake the clothing of countless number of homeless, under served and those people whose misfortune could be aided by the mission of New Life Church on 5th Avenue in Columbus. Vickie sought to aid their neighbors not just by providing clothing, shoes and blankets but also by giving the everlasting embrace of the Love of God. It was this faith that provided her with grace, strength and comfort, to face her mortality after a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, to leave our world and go into the next. Victoria Moseley was a wonderful wife, mother, grandma, sister, sister in law, aunt, great aunt, great great aunt and friend. She told us she was not afraid of death, it was the final chapter here but looked forward to her future. Vickie, true to her selfless nature, said she was more concerned about leaving her family and friends... she was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by all whose lives she impacted. Vickie actively participated in the planning of her memorial service. She wanted it to reflect her faith and for it to be a service for her many dear friends and family. We invite you to come celebrate a remarkable woman's life on Thursday, November 30, 3:30 pm at Trinity United Methodist Church, 1581 Cambridge Boulevard, Columbus Ohio 43212. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service. She will be buried next to her grandson Nicholas Carlson in Oak Grove Cemetery. The Moseley's gave generously to many charities throughout their lifetimes. Vickie loved beautiful flowers and wanted to see the sanctuary filled with God's natural beauty.
