Helen Mosley Hannon was born the seventh of eight children on May 22, 1923, to the late Theis Mosley and Mattie Scott Mosley. She departed Earth and arrived in Heaven on Dec. 15, 2020. Preceding her in death were her parents; ex-husband, Robert Hannon Sr.; son, John Edward; daughters, Mary Louise Day and Betty Joan Arient; daughters-in-law, Jean Hannon and Vonia Hannon; brothers, Melvin, C.L., Woodrow, Clarence, Connie G. and John David; and sister, Ethel Mae Davis.
Helen dedicated her life to Christ at an early age and united with Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church under the leadership of the Rev. Thornton Davis.
She was a faithful member; primarily serving in the choir and attending other church functions until her health failed.
She had an eighth-grade education, but desired to further her schooling. At the age of 60, she attended Basic Adult Education classes and subsequently received her High School Equivalency Certificate on Dec. 22, 1983.
Her memories are cherished by sons, Robert Hannon Jr. of Manila and Melvin L. Hannon of Walker Springs; daughter, Patricia Hannon (Ray) Robinson of Jackson; 10 grandchildren, one devoted Dana, 16 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren; with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Mama Helen, our matriarch, had a beautiful spirit. She was a shrewd and resilient provider, a loving, firm mother, and a refined, elegant woman.
