Obituary of Carol Moss
Carol Diane Moss passed away on July 27, 2013 at the age of 73. She was born September 5, 1949 to Warren and Dorothy Heath.
Carol led a very interesting life. She did everything from working on a farm plowing fields, working at Frankoma Pottery, was a car hop, was a night club owner, and working for the Tulsa Police Department. Once, at a meeting, the police chief told some of the officers, “Go ahead and laugh, she will go into places to nail a criminal where most of you uniformed officers won’t even go.” You could hear a pin drop. Carol didn’t like law breakers and she would do what she could to nail them one way or another. She also drove semi-trucks and loved it. She could put one on a dime. She drove school busses for Mustang, Union, Harrah, and Choctaw, wherever she was needed. She also worked as a substitute teacher and as a custodian.
Carol’s husband, Charles Moss, finally took over due to her Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, and arthritis. You guessed it, she still tried to boss, so ole’ Charlie got a big hook and said, “You see that? You know what I am going to put on there?” She replied, “Yes honey. I promise to be quiet.” Then she laughed. She had many friends, and if she could pull something on someone she would. She loved making people laugh, cooking big meals on holidays, and sending food home with everyone.
Carol had 3 sons, 1 daughter, a son-in-law, 2 stepsons, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and stepdaughters-in-law. She was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents and many others.
Carol loved going to church and even there she like making people laugh and often joyfully harassed smiles and laughter from those she went to church with. She didn’t have a serious bone in her body. She loved life. She loved praying for others and often prayed for people day and night.
She had many nicknames such as trouble, mess, little Moss, butterfly, pain in the backside, and Charlie called her munchkin. She was also called maw, granny goose, hot rod, bubbly a preacher once called her a mean ole’ Pottawatomie woman.
She will be greatly missed.To plant a beautiful memorial tree in memory of Carol Moss, please visit our Tree Store
