Minnie entered into this world July 10, 1933 in Lampasses, Texas to proud
parents Judson and Ellen Moseley. They moved to California in the early
1940's where she lived the larger part of her life. She crossed over to be
with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ at her home, surrounded by her family
after a lengthy battle with cancel on April 4, 2012 in Olivehurst, California.
Minnie faithfully and lovingly worked along side her husband Fred, a Pastor,
and was deeply loved by the congregations they served. Minnie is remembered
most for her beautiful smile, tender and compassionate heart and her love and
commitment to her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren,
and above all, her love of Jesus.
She and her husband Fred loved just 'being together', doing things together
and being with their family, whom she adored. She did not require a lot of
material things to make her happy, just a lot of love.
She is survived by her husband and sweetheart Fred Gene Nickell, of fifty years;
two daughters Rowena Ivonne Fuhrer of Olivehurst, Rhonda Sue Peterson of Oroville;
and a son Charles Rhett Brown of Portland, Oregon; a sister Rena Mae McCaslin
of Palermo and a brother Rockey Moseley of Oroville; three grandchildren, Seth,
Amanda and Tamara' four great-grandchildren Stephan, Samuel, Seraphim, and
Damien Tristen. All of whom she cherished and adored.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Hollis and Otis Moseley, and two
sisters, Clova Lee Osborn and Cleo Reed.
If you were to ask Minnie her greatest desire she would, without hesitation,
say to know her family and friends all came to know and experience Jesus
Christ as their Lord and Savior. Nothing less would bring greater joy to her heart.
Her husband Fred, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren will miss
her earthly presence deeply. But know that she is in a far better place looking
eagerly to a home coming of her family and friends to know the joy and peace she
is now experiencing. (John 14:1-6)

interested in vocational classes under a plan approved last night by
the city school board. The board approved the controversial proposal
6-3, despite attempts by board member Rickey Peete to prevent the
action and protests by area residents who fear "problem students" will
cause trouble.

     Hi Everyone!
I saw Sue Elkins today and she said that Coach Sivert
is in Baptist Memorial Hospital.
The address is: 6019 Walnut Grove Road, Room 3422, Memphis, Tn.
When I called Jackie, she requested no visitors for now. I am
sure he would like to receive cards. They are giving him
breathing treatments. Please keep them in your prayers.
Their home address is:
Coach & Mrs. James E. Sivert
4040 Altruria Drive
Bartlett, TN 38135

As you may know, our dear Mickey Irvin Hon passed away at the
end of the month. She will surely be missed by those of us who
kept in touch with her.
I am so happy to announce that Dot Gorman Hager is going to fill
Mickey's place on the Sunshine Committee.
These positions are hard to fill and I really want to thank Dot
for stepping up to the plate to help.
Happy New Year
Candy Holt Wilkinson, Sunshine Chairm
