Pauline A. Mosteller, 101, peacefully passed away Thursday, March 16, 2017. Polly was born July 8, 1915, in Terre Haute, to Clifford and Nora Pitts Jeffries.
Polly, as she was fondly called, was a former resident of Terre Haute, where she resided until 2007. From 2007 until 2014, she had resided with her daughter, Susan and son-in-law Bob in Georgetown, Ind. The last three years, she was a resident of the Historic Villages of Silvercrest in New Albany.
Polly married Victor N. Mosteller April 17, 1938. In 1957, Polly and her three children were able to accompany Victor to Turkey, where they lived for almost two years. One of her fondest memories was her visit to the Holy Land.
Momma, as her children called her, was a homemaker. She loved cooking, gardening, mushroom hunting, her church and family times.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; two sons, Vic and Don; a grandson, Rob White; two brothers, Clifford "Bud" Jeffries and baby brother, Robert; and four sisters, Betty Ruth, Helen Adams, Mary Crowther and Jessie Richardson.
Surviving are her daughter, Susan (Bob) White of Georgetown; grandchildren, Jay Mosteller of Pimento, Jeff (Sharon) Mosteller of Marshall, Ill., Laura Mosteller of Indianapolis, Clay (Lisa) White of Riley, Josh (Erica) White of New Albany, Scott (Amy) Mosteller and Melissa Mosteller; great-grandchildren, Michelle, Jacob, Tyler, Gavin, Aubrey, Mikayla, Grace, Rachel and Genesis; one sister, Ann Threlkeld; sisters-in-law, Margie Jeffries and Ruth Adams, all of Terre Haute; and several nieces and nephews.
The family gratefully acknowledges the nurses and staff of Silvercrest; especially Allen, Caroline, Holly and Sara.
