Jean Ann Mosteller of Pauls Valley passed away unexpectedly in her home on January 3, 2017 at the age of 78 years.
Jean was born July 27, 1938 in Okemah, Oklahoma to John L. and Julia Parker Nance. On November 26, 1953, she and Doyle A. Mosteller were married in Haskell, Oklahoma. In 1962 they moved to Duncan and in 1967 they moved to Pauls Valley, making it their home.
Jean wore many hats of employment, but the longest and most important job for her was as a bus driver for the Pauls Valley and Whitebead Schools, from which she retired in 2006.
She loved her family, especially all her grand babies. Jean was an avid and talented hand quilter and loved to crochet and do mending for family and friends. She also loved to garden.
She was a longtime member of The Church of Christ. Attending worship service with others was very important to her and she was a very prayerful woman.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Doyle; grandson Joshua Tolbert Choate; one sister and her brother.
Surviving family include her five children - Terry and Gayla J. Mosteller of Choctaw, Jennifer Mosteller, Melissa and Monte Choate, Vallory and Tom Moore, all of Pauls Valley, and Gayla Mosteller of Purdy; 11 grandchildren - Chancy Hodge, Reno and Amanda Choate, Shiloh and Presley Choate, Bobby and Aimee Tolbert, all of Pauls Valley, Ali and CJ Langford and Kris Ferguson, all of Purdy, Jaron Moore and Cole Albright, both of Norman, Doyle and Kelly Albright of Midwest City, Dr. Crystal Mosteller of Tuttle and Dr. Kelli Mosteller of Oklahoma City; 13 great-grandchildren; two sisters, Kay Leftwich of Medford and Susan Baskins of Pine Bluff, Arkansas; two very special sisters-in-law, Judy Simmons and Maggie Fultz of Haskell; and brother-in-law, Jack Mosteller of Broken Arrow.
Memorial services will be held on Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 11 a.m. at the Pauls Valley Church of Christ.
A memorial service was held in The Republic of Georgia on the 5th by son-in-law Tom Ed Moore and Georgian friends.
A private interment was held on the 6th at the Mt. Olivet Cemetery, under the direction of Stufflebean-Coffey Funeral Home. Pallbearers were her eight surviving grandsons and honorary pallbearers were great-grandson Carson Hodge and the late Joshua Tolbert Choate.
