February 12, 1947 - June 17, 2021
Please select this link to livestream the service for Linda Clark Mozley Linda Joyce Clark was born on February 12, 1947, in Moultrie, Georgia, to Gordon Huber Clark and Opal Sherrod Clark. While she was still in grammar school, Linda’s father died in an automobile accident. As a result, during her early youth she was raised by her mother, but as she got older, she lived with her paternal grandparents, William Simpson Clark and Frankie P. Clark. After graduating from Moultrie High School in 1965, she attended Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, studying secretarial science, but departed to Atlanta and began working with Georgia Power Company. While working at Georgia Power, she met her future husband, Ken, while he was attending a training class. Having met in October of 1970, they became engaged the following February and married on July 10, 1971. After 3 years and 8 months of marriage, Ken and Linda welcomed Kristie Suzanne Mozley to the world in March of 1975. Though she took an extension to the standard maternity leave from GA Power, Linda decided not to return to work but rather become a stay-at-home mother. In September of 1978, there was a second addition to the family with the birth of Chad Michael Mozley. The Mozleys lived in the Stone Mountain area until 1985, when Ken took a position with GA Power in Rome, a place the family loved very much. After living in Rome for six years, another work transfer found them back in the Atlanta area, this time settling in Snellville in 1991, where they continue to reside today. In Snellville, Linda began working at a women’s clothing and accessory consignment store called Bring and Buy. Several years later, she assumed ownership of the store. With her big smile and outgoing personality, Linda not only had customers, but also customers who became friends. After almost ten years of doing business, she closed the store in order to enjoy more free time with her family. Linda has been blessed to see both Kris and Chad marry and have children. Kris has twins, Deacon and Stellan, who are 18 and graduated high school this spring. Chad has a girl, Tallulah, who is 10, and a boy, Judah, who is 8. Linda’s larger “family” was of course comprised of her beloved cats and dogs. Over her adult life she cared for and loved 6 different cats and 3 dogs. Some pets were given to her by relatives, but most of the cats were strays who just showed up at the door because they’d heard of the kind lady who welcomed the lost things. Linda loved all her animals, whether pedigreed or feral, and they all got along in the house together as one big family. This list does not include, however, the many rescued birds, turtles, squirrels, and small things! Her heart for animals was such that she would even save old newspapers for the local veterinarian’s office to put in their animal enclosures. Linda loved to be out in the yard, working in the garden and growing many different types of flowers, ferns, and all things green and blooming. When she moved from one house to another, she would transplant certain flowers to continue enjoying some of her favorite varieties, and these plants continue to provide her husband and children a rich legacy. At each of their three houses, Linda always had a bird feeder outside her kitchen or breakfast table window, for one of her greatest joys was to watch her birds and even to see their fledglings come along to the feeder. She bought several books to identify the various species as they visited the feeder year round. This love of nature extended to the “great outdoors”; thus, camping was a central part of most vacations, both before and after she and Ken had children. One of the first family camping trips was when Chad was only 2 years old and Kris was about 5. Camping destinations included Unicoi State Park; two trips to Fall Creek Falls, Tennessee; Norris Dam State Park; and Cumberland State Park. During the summers and the falls that did not find them camping, the Mozleys spent time at Pioneer Village cabins in Maggie Valley, North Carolina; Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee, Georgia; Lake Guntersville State Park, Alabama; and Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It was then only natural that in 1985, Linda and Ken obtained a lease for a lake lot on Georgia Power’s Lake Sinclair and set down a double-wide mobile home that became the “Lake House.” It has offered 36 years of family memories of the children growing up, then the grandchildren, and many of their friends coming with them to visit the lake. Linda authentically embraced the life of a Christian wife, mother, and grandmother. She and Ken attended three different churches because of work transfers. They attended Rehoboth Baptist in Lawrenceville/Tucker, West Rome Baptist in Rome, and First Baptist Snellville, being active in church and Sunday school. Kris and Chad were both born while Ken and Linda attended Rehoboth, attended AWANA at West Rome, and then became active in the youth group at Snellville. Both accepted Christ at a young age. Linda lived a life of caring and loving on family and friends. She never stayed a stranger to anyone she met. Her compassion, gentleness, and generosity of spirit will remain unmatched this side of heaven. She is now at home where she belongs and has left this temporal life to live that eternal life with Jesus and with those who have gone on before. Linda is survived by her husband, Ken; her daughter and son-in-law, Kris and Donovan McAllister, their two boys, Deacon and Stellan; her son and daughter-in-law, Chad and Bethany Mozley, and their two children, Tallulah and Judah.
