Naomi Mosley

April 12, 1942 — June 19, 2024

Albuquerque

 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother and wife, Naomi Mosley at the age of 82 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Naomi was born in Fairfield, Texas to Clarence Solomon and Melvira Jefferson on April 12, 1942. 

 She is preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Johnny "Sonny Man" Jefferson, Namon "Red" Jefferson, Maggie Walker, Clint "Red Baby" Jefferson, and Wyomie Watson, as well as three grandchildren, Ja'Michael, Ja'Hari and Ja'Mari Rojas. 

 She leaves to cherish her memories, her husband of 57 years, Joseph Joe Mosley, her son Joseph Kent Mosley, Albuquerque, NM, and daughters Andrea Marie Humphrey, Roanoke, VA and Lisa Evette Mosley-Rojas, Houston, TX, seven grandchildren, Tyrell Jones, Shanessa Jones, Jacobe Mosley, Rakim Ewing, Ja'Mia Rojas, Ja'Nia Rojas and Tatiana Williams, six great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who will forever be grateful for the place of safety, kindness and support that she provided.

 Naomi grew up in Fairfield, TX and in her early twenties moved to Albuquerque, NM where she met and then married her husband Joseph Joe Mosley on April 1, 1967. Joe and Naomi adopted their first child, Andrea Marie in 1971, Joseph Kent in 1973 and Lisa Evette in 1975. 

 Naomi loved caring for people. She had a childhood dream of becoming a nurse and worked as an LPN as well as cooked meals for children at a daycare center. In keeping with her calling to care for people, she obtained her cosmetology license and joined her twin sister to work in her hair salon in 1976. As joint owners, they named the business Wyomie and Naomi's House of Beauty and for some time, was the first salon to provide African American focused beauty products in Albuquerque. She showed her passion for this work by continuing to see long-term clients well into her 70's.

 Her talents weren't limited to cosmetology, however. She also had a talent for cooking. From her mouth-watering fried catfish and collard greens to her sweet potato and pecan pies, she reveled in her role as mother, wife and friend. She loved cooking large spreads for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday as a show of love for all in her life. Her house was full every holiday with those whom she loved and loved her in return.

 Naomi will be forever remembered for her kindness to others. She was a committed member of the Links and Eastern Stars where she was involved in community service and various charities. It was her calling to help those who were in need. No matter the struggle that any of her children, grandchildren or any other friend or loved one was encountering, she went out of her way to support them with whatever was needed, be it shelter, food, clothing or just a shoulder to cry on. She was a one of a kind friend and matron of her family. She leaves behind a legacy of children, grandchildren and great grandchildren who will forever remember her for her generous soul, her great big hugs and the kindness shown to each and everyone of us.

 

Rest in peace, dear mother. You will forever be in our hearts and memories.
