Rosalind went home peacefully to be with her Lord on April 29, 2016 after injuries from a fall. She was born and raised in Miami, Florida and the summer of 1955 she met her future husband, Richard E. Moser. They were married on January 28, 1956 and made their first home in Raleigh, NC. Rosalind soon took on the role of an Air Force wife, as Dick became a pilot in the US Air Force. She used this opportunity to show hospitality to others, particularly single moms with young children. She was passionate about her country and parented three children while her husband was deployed during the Vietnam War. During their Air Force career they were members of five different churches where she was very active in preschool ministry for the entirety of each assignment. Dick and Rosalind had a 20-year career with the Air Force, retiring from Cannon Air Force base in Clovis, NM, and moving to Lubbock, TX in 1980. During her time in Clovis, she was part of a traveling team that visited various churches and taught workshops for preschool Sunday school teachers. After moving to Lubbock she did similar work on a national scale for the Southern Baptist Convention, ultimately retiring from preschool ministry after 55 years of total service as a preschool teacher. She was a committed volunteer in the Lubbock community, serving with the sick children’s clinic and Meals on Wheels for many years. She and Dick led the homebound ministry at First Baptist Church in Lubbock for eight years. Preschool children were her life and over her decades of teaching she ministered to hundreds of children and their families. She had a passion for introducing preschoolers to Jesus. She had a vision for her preschool classes being more than babysitting and instead a way to open the door for children to know who God is by getting to know the world that He made. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Dick Moser of Lubbock; sister Gloria Moyer of Ft. Worth; son, Rick Moser and wife Cindy of Dallas; daughter Jan Gaukroger and husband Steve of London, England; daughter Julie Wesley and husband Jeff of Tucson, Arizona and seven adult grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Her family is thankful for the legacy that she left of strong faith in Jesus and unwavering commitment to pray daily for each of her children and grandchildren. Her relationship with God is demonstrated by one of her favorite verses: “I will be your God throughout your lifetime—until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you.” Isaiah 46:4. Funeral services will be held at 10:00am on Tuesday, May 3rd in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church of Lubbock. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the First Baptist Church preschool ministry.
