PRESTONSBURG — A loving mother and friend of the community would have been 100 years old this month.

Hattie King Mosley passed away at age 99. This longevity, her family says, is likely due to her vitality, thanks to activities including her working in her garden, even throughout her golden years, to maintain flowers and make her outdoors a pleasant place to be.

Mosley is the progenitor to a large and loving family, including five children, 14 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and 23 great-great- grandchildren. Giving love, she believed, was the key to being loved, be it expressed by service to the Lord, hearty cooking, or keeping candy on hand for little ones.

Mosley’s presence will be missed and remembered for ages to come.
