“She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.”

She departed this life on May 8, 2023 after a long illness. She is preceded in death by her husband, Mack “Jesse” Mosley, Jr and her children, Marilyn Mosley, David Rico Mosley and Terrill Mosley.
She was united in marriage to Mack “Jesse” Mosley, Jr. on December 31, 1960. To this union, five children were born. Teresa accepted the Lord as her Savior at an early age and joined Holy Zion Holiness Church in Portal, GA under the leadership of Bishop Talmadge Wilder. Mack and Teresa relocated their family in 1969 to Cambridge, Massachusetts where they lived until her retirement from Harvard University in 1990.
