Mozelle Whitney Braithwaite
Mozelle Whitney Braithwaite died peacefully in her sleep on Friday, April 8, 2011. She was born on April 29, 1924 in Mapleton, Utah to Harvey Alonzo Whitney Sr. and Claudia Johnson Whitney. She was the youngest of 13 children. On December 9, 1945 she married her eternal sweetheart Wayne Lester Braithwaite. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan Utah LDS Temple. Wayne died after 59 years of marriage on October 26, 2005.
Mozelle's passion was to serve others and stay busy. She had a real zeal for life and especially enjoyed traveling, arts and crafts and spending time with her grandchildren. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in which she served in many ward and stake callings. She loved doing genealogy work and wrote several family history books for the Braithwaite, Whitney, and Johnson families.
While rearing her children, Mozelle worked as a secretary at several businesses and schools. To fulfill her dream to teach, she received her bachelor's degree in education at age 50 and later a master's degree. She taught in the Weber County school district for over 20 years, retiring at the age of 72. For 15 years after retiring, Mozelle continued to pursue her desire to learn by auditing courses at Weber State University.
Mozelle is survived by her four children, Alys Simon (Dave), Jeffrey Braithwaite (Karen), Claudia Price (Roger) and Garth Braithwaite (Karlyn), 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, 11 brothers and one sister.
