Charlena was the eldest daughter of the late Charlie Mosley and Lois Whitis Mosley of Madison, North Carolina. At an early age, she avowed her faith in Christ and was baptized at St. Stephens United Methodist Church in Madison. In her early twenties, Charlena moved to Eden, North Carolina where she joined Gospel Light Holiness Church in Axton, Virginia, and St. John United Methodist Church in Eden. In addition, she became a member of Southside Church of Christ in Durham, North Carolina.
Transitioning from her earthly life to her eternal life, Charlena was welcomed home by our Heavenly Father on April 5, 2018. Her parents, five sisters, two brothers and other beloved family members preceded her in death.
With lasting memories, Charlena will be cherished by those she leaves to celebrate her life including daughters, Desiree (Ronald Lee) Allen of Durham, NC, and Bernadette Cohen (Roy Hiawatha Harris) of Atlanta, GA; two brothers, Frank Mosley, Sr. of Madison, NC and Floyd Mosley of Greensboro, NC; two sisters, Yvonne (John) Coulter of Baltimore, MD and Montina (Glenn) Dalton of High Point, NC; two grandchildren and one great-grandson; sister-in-law, Betty Mosley of Mayodan, NC; great sister-friends from St. John United Methodist Church, longtime friend and neighbor, Dorothy Broadnax of Eden, NC; and a host of wonderful nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
