Mozell (Bell) ManleyFebruary 23, 1933 ~ October 26, 2017 (age 84)
Mozell Manley, 84, passed away early on Thursday morning. She was born March 23, 1933 in Marietta, Georgia to the late Ralph E. and Nevada Bell. She worked for 14 years with the Bath County School System and 19 years at Ruth Hunt Candies where her meticulous effort was admired by all who worked with her. Everything she did had to be the best. Although she was described as mild and meek she had the ability to light up a room when she walked in. She was a giver and very free hearted, making it no surprise that her family says her best trait was her beautiful personality. Among her favorite activities were cooking and reading the Daily Bread. She had stacks and stacks of the Daily Bread spread out around her home. She worked alongside her husband Ruben Claude "RC" Manley for many years on the farm. She could drive tractors, milk cows, load hay and do much of the farm labor as good as any man.
She leaves behind her loving family one daughter Judith Manley (Jack) Lewis of Ypsilanti, Michigan; one son Michael Scott Manley of Owingsville; four sisters Patsy Vanlandingham of Mount Sterling, Doris (Larry) McClain of Means, Alice (Steve) Ward of Mount Sterling and Judy (Mitchel) Allen of Mount Sterling; one brother Anthony Bell of Olympia; seven grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded death by her beloved husband Ruben Claude “RC” Manley, one brother Ralph Bell Jr. and one sister Mary Ann Penix.
