Mia Mouzon Obituary
Mia Mouzon SARATOGA SPRINGS - Mia Mouzon passed away quietly on Wednesday, August 23, 2017 after a brief illness. Mia was born in Saratoga Springs Hospital on September 7, 1924. She grew up in the house that is now the “Mouzon House”. Mia was the first American born woman of color to graduate from Skidmore College in 1947. Upon graduation, she moved to Miami, Florida to begin her 30 year teaching career. Mia was an avid and meticulous reader. Up until the last week of her life she was doing legal research on the internet. She eventually married Rocky Groce and they moved to Teaneck, New Jersey where she continued to teach second graders at the Beach Street School in Hackensack, NJ. She stayed there until retirement when the family eventually returned to her birthplace, Saratoga Springs, NY. Mia will be missed by many, as she was an exceptionally intelligent, politically astute, sassy and classy woman. She is survived by her daughter, L. Michelle Groce and her granddaughter, Trinity Mouzon Wofford. Her service will be held on Monday, August 28, 2017 at the Tunison Funeral Home 105 Lake Avenue in Saratoga Springs, between the hours of 11-12.
