VAN ALSTYNE — Lola (Cissie) Mosier, 69, died February 20, 2019 at Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center in Sherman. She was born December 12, 1949 to Harry Joseph Porter and Edith Dickerson Porter.


Lola grew up in Anna and graduated from Anna High School. She later met the love of her life, Lynn Mosier, and they were married for 43 years, until his passing in 2012. She attended Southern Methodist University and was a special education teacher for 18 years, teaching at Anna High School, Tom Bean High School and the Bridges of Collin County. Lola had a special place in her heart for her students.


Lola loved going to her grandchildren’s sports activities and cheering them on. When Lola wasn’t busy with her grandchildren’s sports, she was cooking and watching Hallmark movies and watching the Food Network channel. She really enjoyed the holidays with her family, especially Christmas. She would always put on the biggest and best feast. Lola would also spoil her family with the best Christmas gifts ever.


Lola was a woman of faith and a wonderful mother and grandmother who always put others first before herself. She loved her family so much that nothing ever stood in the way of her doing for them or spending time with them. She was truly the best mother and grandmother that anyone could ask for.


Those left to cherish her memories are her sons, Michael Mosier and wife, Christy of Howe and Matt Mosier and wife, Stephanie of Anna; daughter, Lacey Vaughn and husband, Jerrod of Van Alstyne; grandchildren, Aaron O’Neal, Bryce Mosier, Madison Mosier, Major Mosier, Cooper Mosier, Lauryn Mosier and Xander Vaughn; brother, Joe Porter; and loving niece, Ann Dixon.

Burial was private for family only at Ridgeview Memorial Park in Allen. The family received friends from 6-8 p.m. February 25 at Scoggins Funeral Home in Van Alstyne.
