Betty S. Mousa


Betty S. Mousa, 87, of Seymour, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 18, 2017, at Covered Bridge Health Campus.

Born Nov. 7, 1929, in Lawrence County, she was the daughter of two loving and special parents, her father, Richard Mundy, and her mother, Susie Sherfick Mundy, both of whom preceded her in death. On Sept. 30, 1950, she married the best man we ever knew, Roger Mousa, and they shared 55 years together before he passed away Jan. 16, 2006.

Roger and Betty were both loving parents to Rick (Leonna) Mousa of Snellville, Georgia, and Dan (Anna) Mousa and Jane Owens, both of Seymour. She was blessed with six grandchildren, Adam (Megan) Mousa, Ana Mousa, Jacob Henley, Brandon Henley, Brian (Christy) Mousa and Brad Mousa; and great-grandchildren, Carter, Paisley, Hattie, Remi, Colin and Katherine. She considered two others like daughters, her neighbor, Tina Wetzel, and Jane’s good friend, Cindy Hauersperger. She was like a mother to both of them. She also was a special aunt to Donna Brackemyre.

Betty was a housewife, mother, mamaw, great-mamaw, sister, aunt and friend to many people. She lived her life to the fullest until the very end. She loved her children and grandchildren dearly.

She was a member of Seymour Christian Church. She enjoyed bingo and playing cards with her friends of 50-plus years. Her house was always spotless and clothes for her and family always neat and clean. She made the best chili on the planet. She enjoyed telling jokes and laughing with family and friends. We will love her and miss her every day. She knew we loved her and were proud she was our mom.

She was able to live at home until early this year when health issues forced her to move to Covered Bridge. Our family gives a special thanks to all of those at Covered Bridge who cared and loved our mom.

Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by brothers, Wilfred and Charlie Mundy; sister, Irene Hall; and son-in- law, Myron “Turtle” Owens.

The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday at Woodlawn Life Celebration Centre in Seymour with Pastor Bill Lockman officiating. Burial will follow at Riverview Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday and from 10 a.m. until time of service Thursday at the funeral home.
