Mozelle Bass was lifted into the arms of Jesus at 5:47p.m. on November 6, 2018 at the age of 85. She was born January 3, 1933 in Carter County, Oklahoma to Cecil and Annie Ponder.
Mozelle grew up in the Oklahoma City area. At the age of 18, she married Cole Hoyt Bass on March 12, 1951. They enjoyed 46 years of a wonderful marriage before his passing in 1997 and were blessed with 3 children, 5 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren. They owned and operated Midland Foundries in Oklahoma City and together they enjoyed traveling and fishing.
Mozelle was known for her expressions of generosity and had a true love and passion for helping people. After retiring from the family business, she went on to Experience Works, where she developed lifelong relationships doing what she loved, and gained her long time best friend, Vickie. Mozelle also worked for the Salvation Army at the Reding Senior Center in Oklahoma City. She fell in love with all of the many wonderful friends she had made there and sold her house in 2014 to make the Reding Center her new home.
Mozelle found her Lord and savior when she was 65 years old and became a member at Brookwood Baptist Church. Most recently, she attended Olivet Baptist Church because the Reding Center provided transportation to and from there and it allowed her to be with all of her friends.
Her hobbies included playing bingo, fishing all around the state, and keeping up with politics. She was very passionate about politics and stood up for what she believed in. She was also an avid fan of the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Oklahoma Sooners. Family and friends were extremely important to her and she made sure to keep everyone close with visits and phone calls. She was the family historian and it was also important to her to be able to pass the family history on to her children and future generations. In addition, she had a huge heart for dogs and adored her Cocker Spaniel companion, Freckles. She spoiled her like no other and together they made a perfect team.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Cole Hoyt Bass; and son, Hoyt Lee Bass.
Survivors include her daughters, Joy Parker and husband Bruce of Madill, OK and Kaye Anderson of Oklahoma City; brother, Dewayne Ponder; sisters, Wanda Beck and Cecilia Long; grandchildren, Jason Lynn, Jimmy Parker, James Bass, Jill Oliver, and Katie Parker; and great-grandchildren, Braiden Lynn, Madison Parker, Ryleigh Lynn, Savanah Parker, Vanessa Parker, and Parker Oliver. She is also survived by a host of many loving extended family and friends.
