Linda Jane Mobley “Mam-mee”
It would be impossible to honor a life so well lived with just a few paragraphs in an obituary when even a large volume book would not do it justice.
After battling Alzheimer’s for many years, Linda J. Mobley, 92, left this earth on Thursday morning, January 13, 2022, to be with her Lord.
Born into a large close-knit family on December 10, 1929, she developed strong character from a very early age. Mom was very blessed to be born to a father who was a true example of a Godly man. His walk with the Lord influenced her throughout her life. She was one of the most selfless people you would ever meet. Always looking out for others, giving generously with her time and resources.
On August 8, 1952, she married Bill “Pop” Mobley and they celebrated 54 years of marriage before he passed away in 2006. They had 6 children and 14 grandchildren, and she spent countless hours lovingly babysitting her grandchildren and rarely would return from a shopping trip without the perfect something for one of her children or grandchildren.
As she was raising her children, she was much loved by the neighborhood children and became well known for her homemade peanut butter candy, with some of her children’s friends often requesting a batch well into adulthood. She was always eager to fulfill the requests.
Even after the disease robbed her of most of her memory, we would still see glimpses of her selflessness seeping through in her behavior. Never willing to eat until she knew that you had a plate also.
The children honored to call her mom are Carol (Chuck) Shoemaker, Sandy (Tim) Toth, Elaine (Paul) Brown, Billy Mobley, Bryan Mobley, and Rodney (Lisa) Mobley; grandchildren, Chip (Kelly) Ethel, Marshall (Vanessa Jessop) Ethel, Stephanie (Sean) Hunt, Sarah King, Bradley (Jen) Brown, Rachel (Jarred) Newmyer, Allyssa (Wynnslo) Lydy, Jamie Prosser, Amanda (Steve) Thurber, Joshua (Amanda) Mobley, Jennifer (Austin Akers) Mobley, Caleb Mobley, Makayla (Devin) Boucher, and Macy Mobley; stepgrandchildren, Danny (Samantha) Shoemaker, Chevy, Char, Beth and Leah (Toth) and their families; great-grandchildren, Katelyn (Jeremy Spurlock) Ethel, Xavier Ethel, Michelle (Drake Matthews) Ethel, Cheyenne and Mariah Hunt, Aria and Isabelle King, Josiah and Grace Lydy, Gregory Harris, Emma Barger, Jacob and Jayden Prosser, Gracie, Addison, and Graham Thurber, Lincoln and Walker Mobley, Jaden and Jocelynn Hedrick, Kaylie and Parker Bond, and Kynlee Boucher; great-great-grandchildren, Aubrey and Alexa Spurlock and soon to arrive Zander Matthews.
She is also survived by her wonderful brother, Estill (Bud) Fields; loving sister, Elizabeth Carroll; and over 60 nieces and nephews.
Besides her husband and her parents, Elihu and Ada Mae Fields, she was preceded in death by her loving daughter-in-law, Kathy Mobley (who even after her own terminal diagnosis continued to provide loving help and care for Mam-mee); granddaughter, Dustin Ethel; siblings, Roy Fields, Bertha Blevins, Bill Carroll, Clifford Carroll, Faye Raymond, Sophie Cox, Goldie Workman, Jessie Coleman and infant sister, Letha Fields.
The family would like to thank the wonderful people at Stein Hospice for their excellent care of our mom during her last weeks of life. Their professional care far exceeded our expectations on every level. May God richly bless them!
Graveside services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, February 1, 2022 at Windsor Park Cemetery, 1712 Windsor Road, Mansfield, OH.
