Arnetha Mosley Obituary

Arnetha Mosley of Dorchester, MA peacefully transitioned on Dec 14, 2023.  Arnetha was born on August 6, 1944, in Marion, S.C.  Her family migrated to Boston, MA for a better way of life when she was 9 years old. 

As an adult she worked for several organizations and eventually became a Social Worker for the State of Massachusetts, Department of Social Services.  She retired after 30+ years of faithful service.  After retirement she spent her time mentoring, giving back to her community, family, and church.

She was predeceased by her father Nash Sparks and her mother, Lou Alice Ward (Sparks), her brother’s Frederick (Freddie) and Lavern (Lee), her sister Betty Mae and her brother Nash Sparks, Jr.

Even at the end, she found a way to smile, keep her sassy candor, and be faithful to her God-given calling.  Inspiring and motivating others to succeed.  She was generous, humbled, and a principled woman of integrity always in tune with the Holy Spirit of God in her life.  She remained prayerful and deeply committed to her faith and family and to Christ to her last breath.

She is survived by her sons Guy Mosley Jr and Anthony Mosley of Boston MA, her daughter Betty Mae Mosley and her life partner Glenn Champagne of Needham MA, her nephews Dwayne Deen Sparks and his wife Lisa Sparks of Charlotte NC, her great nephew Tarik Steven Sparks, his wife Anne Marie Sparks, their daughter and great-great niece Saige Indigo Sparks of Miami FL, along with her great niece Indigo Karen Sparks of Brooklyn NY. Also, her nephew Robert Lee Sparks, his partner Mona, his children Paulette, Shanae, Rob, Dequan, Joshua and Bernard. And a host of cousins, relatives, and close friends.

-Poem-

Death is Nothing But a Moment’s Rest

Death is nothing but a moment’s rest Until the Second Coming of the Lord

When He shall gather to Him of the best to take them to the place of their reward.

I’ve felt the power of Jesus in my soul.

Shining like a golden sun within,

Melting my hard heart to make me whole,

Burning out the remnants of my sin. I’ve felt Him work within me, so I know The glory that will come when I awake.

I’ll sleep just like a child who’ll homeward go,

And in my dreams of love great pleasure take. So do not mourn my death, and do not grieve.

The Lord has come for me: This I always believed
