Mary Lou Moss

Mary Lou Moss, aged 91, peacefully passed away on Friday, November 24, 2023. 

She was born on June 22, 1932 to Cecil L. and Jennie Mae (Muse) Windsor in Faucett, MO. Mary Lou's life was a tapestry of love, adventure, and community spirit. In 1950, she married William C. Moss and together they built a life on a farm outside Stewartsville, Missouri, raising their three sons. 

Mary Lou's zest for life shone through her veracious travels, which included cruising to Alaska, exploring the vibrant streets of New York City and Washington D.C, and cherished vacations with her sons and grandchildren. Her adventurous spirit remained undimmed well into her late 80s, exemplified by her enthusiasm for canoeing. 

An active member of the community, Mary Lou found joy in her monthly Bunko game with friends, volunteered at Bethany Church, and expressed her creativity through playing her organ. Her baking skills were legendary; she was always eager to share her latest recipe and welcomed visitors with her delicious cakes and cookies. An ardent fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and Royals, she shared her passion for sports with all who knew her. 

Mary Lou was preceded in death by her parents, Jennie and Frank Warren and Cecil Windsor; her husband, William C. Moss; siblings, Larry Windsor, Patty Mallen, and Joan Schleicher; and grandson, Dalton Moss. 

She leaves behind a legacy of love and cherished memories with her sister, Pam Carlson; her children, Bruce and Kathy Moss, Gregg Moss, Dean and Lisa Moss; her grandchildren, Deanna (Troy) Dessert, Dale Moss, Spencer Moss, Mackenzie Moss, and Rachel Hawkins; and her great-grandchildren, Nathaniel Christian, Hagen Moss, William Luebbert, and Sandi Luebbert. 

The family extends heartfelt gratitude to the Gower Convalescent Center and Freudenthal Hospice for their exceptional care, kindness, and dignity towards our beloved matriarch. 

Visitation: 1:00-2:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 28th at Hixson-Klein Funeral Home with Graveside Service following at 2:00 p.m. at Mt. Zion Cemetery, Gower, MO.

In lieu of flowers, donations are welcomed to the Gower Convalescent Center’s Christmas Shop Fund, to spread joy to its residents during the holiday season.
