Pressing towards the prize of the Most High, MS. MOZELLA  NELSON entered into eternal rest on March 6, 2022 at Trident Regional Hospital to be with her Heavenly Father. MOZELLA, the daughter of the late Leroy Brown and the late Carrie Bell Nelson, was born on February 2, 1950 in Berkeley County.

MOZELLA attended Jamestown Elementary in Jamestown, South Carolina and graduated from Russellville High School Class of 1968, where she was a Top 10 graduate. Not only did she demonstrate outstanding academic skills, but she was also known among her classmates as being well dressed.

MOZELLA was a very active and positive individual in her community which exemplified her leadership and service to others.

She was also one of the founding members of the Alvin Recreational League where she served as secretary. Mozella was affiliated with Brown Tax Service, Nelson Tax Service, and H & R Block in Alvin.

At an early age, MOZELLA accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. She was baptized at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Alvin, South Carolina under the leadership of the late Reverend W.H. Manigault. Mozella was a great prayer warrior and was known for her powerful prayers and words of encouragement.

Mozella was a faithful Missionary at Bethlehem Baptist Church and the chairperson of the annual church anniversary program. She was also fundamental in the organization of Elder Derrick Greene’s online Bible study.
