Leacie's journey through life was marked by love, faith, and dedication.
She was preceded in death by her children, Helen Carpenter, John Morris Mosby, and Derwin Mosby, as well as her grandson Marcus Mosby, and siblings Crezell Dennis and Booker Bolton.
Throughout her life, Leacie touched the hearts of many. She first found love and married James Buckley, with whom she welcomed her daughter, Helen Buckley. Later, fate led her to meet and marry John Alton Mosby. Together, they relocated to Dallas and welcomed sons John Morris and Derwin. Though faced with the tragic loss of John Morris as an infant, Leacie's strength and faith remained unwavering.
Leacie accepted Christ at a young age and later joined Bon Air Baptist Church in Dallas, where she was a faithful member and served on the usher board ministry for over 20 years. Professionally, she dedicated herself to Kraft, Inc., where she worked diligently for 30 years until her well-deserved retirement.
Beyond her professional and religious endeavors, Leacie was a pillar of love and generosity within her family. Her classic style, demure grace, and warm disposition endeared her to all who knew her. She found joy in simple pleasures, such as baking and gardening, sharing her talents and creations with those she loved.
