Elizabeth Moseley 1939-2021

Elizabeth Cosenza Moseley, 81 of North Stonington CT, beloved wife of Jimmie G Moseley, has entered into eternal rest on April 15th, 2021 at Hartford Hospital.

Born on November 8th, 1939 in Hartford, CT, “Betty” was the daughter of the late Michael Cozenza and Dorothy (Whitney) Cosenza. Betty grew up in Hartford CT attending Hartford high School and shortly thereafter married Donald Phinney, eventually moving to Norwich CT. She was a stay at home mom who dedicated her 20s, 30s, and 40s to raising her two children, Tucker Phinney and Andrew Phinney. After that Betty worked in the law industry as a legal secretary until retiring in 2002.

She had a wonderful sense of humor and an infectious laugh. For her entire life Betty enjoyed a very close relationship with her siblings Diane, David, Michael, and Bill, their extended families, and her aunts, uncles and cousins from all over the country. She loved getting together with family during holidays and for family reunions through the decades. A lifelong interest was capturing photos at every opportunity, quietly capturing our family history. She leaves an extraordinary collection of thousands of her own family photographs from the 1950s to present.

Throughout her adult life Betty always had a companion dog that she cared for and treated with love and affection, and faithfully attended a number of churches over her lifetime as a soloist in the choir.

Dear Andrew & Tucker, Johnny and I are just so sad that Aunt Betty is no longer present here with us. But to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. I know Aunt Betty fully believed that too.❤️ We will cherish all our memories visiting her home in McDonough, GA. We have you both in our prayers and hope to see you in August. Sending lots of love...she always talked of both of you with such love when we visited her.

Cathy & Johnny Cosenza, cousins
