Leta Lynn Van Vliet Mucsi Obituary
LETA LYNN VAN VLIET MUCSI January 6, 1928-August 4, 2015 Mrs. Mucsi continues her eternal life with her Lord Jesus having transitioned from this earthly life on August 4 2015. She and her twin sister, Lela, were born to Elmer and Elsie Van Vliet in Oklahoma. Leta had 2 older sisters, Mabel and Mary, who have preceded her in death. Her twin, Lela, and a brother, George (Charlene), continue to reside in Oklahoma. Leta is also survived by her closest friends, Ann Wilson and Margaret Edwards, and her caregivers Ezra and Sherry Cox and Brooke Bui. During her last year, Leta was very blessed by her hospice caregivers from Arbor Hospice of Hemet. After graduation from high school in 1946 Leta attended business college in Oklahoma for which she had received a full scholarship. In 1953, she moved to Southern California. Through her working years, Leta held several positions of work including personal assistant, secretary, office and personnel clerk, and payroll clerk. It was her extremely methodical habits and love for detail that allowed her to be very successful in her work. Her slow, methodical way of moving earned her the nickname "Mrs. Molasses." In 1964 Leta met and married the love of her life, George Mucsi. Leta always referred to him as "my George." They lived primarily in Long Beach, retiring to Hemet in 1990, and were happily married until George's death in 1995. George and Leta loved to travel together, their most memorable trips being the 5 times they traveled to Hungary to visit George's family home. They also visited Israel, Romania and Denmark several times and traveled extensively in the United States. Leta loved adventure and even recently got to experience riding on a motorcycle! Above all, Leta loved the Lord and served Him all of her life. She was known for her quiet, gentle spirit. Leta was always faithful in every part of her life, generous in her time and resources. In 2000 Leta was appointed as a deaconess at Valle Vista Assembly of God. Until she was no longer physically able, Leta spent many hours per week visiting individuals who were sick and needy. Until her death she continued to encourage others. Leta's celebration service will be on Friday, August 14 at Hemet Valley Mortuary in Hemet. Viewing will begin at 9:00 AM and the memorial service will begin at 10:00 AM. There will be a reception following, also at Hemet Valley Mortuary. www.hemetvalleymortuary.com
