November 13, 1917 – Lunenburg, NS
February 11, 2014 – Calgary, AB
Leona beloved wife of the late R.W. Mossman passed away on February 11, 2014 at the age of 96 years.
Mom was born in Lunenburg, NS to Herbert and Mary Alice Knickle. She was the youngest of 5 children, three brothers and one sister. She married her husband, R.W. (Moss) Mossman and in a few short years, which included the birth of their son, they moved out west as Dad joined the R.C.M.P. Over the next years Mom worked alongside Dad in a number of detachments in Manitoba. In this time they had their daughter. Mom became well known by friend and constables alike for her gift of cooking and baking. She also enjoyed church and singing in the choir as well as taking part in numerous groups. Mom had a special love for her Lord, her family and all children. One of her times of great joy was when she was asked to babysit children while their moms attended bible studies. She served in this way until she was 75 years old. Mom and Dad lived many years in Winnipeg after Dad retired from the police. After Dad was gone, Mom joined her daughter and son-in-law in a transfer to Calgary in 1994.
Mom was predeceased by her husband, her parents and her brother and sister. She leaves behind her son, David (Lynn) Mossman of Kelowna, BC; her daughter Ann Marie (Murray) Thiessen of Calgary, AB; and her six precious grandchildren and nine precious great grandchildren. We will all miss you so much, Mom.
Thank you to Dr. McKenna, and to all the nurses, care workers, and recreation department at Bow Crest Care Center Calgary, that gave Mom love and help over the past three years.
A Private Family Gathering to honor Mom will be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
