Mozelle Devereaux, 93, a former resident of Snowflake, passed away on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013, in California. Memorial services were held March 30 at Diboll United Methodist Church in Diboll, Texas, with Reverend Becky Love officiating.
Mrs. Devereaux was born Oct. 3, 1919, in Ringgold, La., the daughter of the late C.B. Bullock Sr. and Celia Ola Bullock. She was united in marriage on Feb. 12, 1939, to Jack Devereaux. They were married for 73 years.
Mozelle had an unwavering love of God and country. She was a longtime member of Diboll United Methodist Church, and was very involved with the church and local community organizations, including the Garden Club and Pilot Club of Diboll.
