Mozella "Mo" S. Witte, 97, of Raleigh, NC, formerly of Virginia Beach, VA, passed away on March 18, 2017. She was born May 14, 1919 in Madison Heights, VA to the late William Walter Spivey and Bessie Kessler Spivey.

Mozella was baptized into Christ February 3, 1974 at Kempsville Christian Church. She faithfully attended the church and volunteered whenever she could until her health forced her to move from Virginia Beach. Mozella dearly loved God's family at Kempsville Christian Church and felt blessed to be there.

Mozella is survived by her son, Art Whorley (Phyllis); stepdaughter, Fay Stewart (Roy); grandchildren, Brandon Whorley, Courtney Meinig (Matt), Lauren Sparks (Jonathan), Katie Holcomb (Apollo), Fay Strasel, Garland Pilgrim, Jessica Andrade and Cameron Stewart (Trinity), 16 great grandchildren; 4 great great grandchildren; and her brother, Leonard Spivey.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Quintus Peter Witte, and siblings, Walter, Virginia, and Carol.

A memorial service will be held at 1:30 PM Saturday, April 1, 2017 at Kempsville Christian Church, 5424 Parliament Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23462. The family will receive friends immediately following the service. Private burial will be at Colonial Grove Cemetery in Virginia Beach.

Kempsville Christian Church has a "Senior Saints" ministry, dedicated to senior citizens in the church. The ministry volunteers were the arms and legs of Jesus to Mozella as they did whatever they could to help meet her needs. Mozella's family had peace of mind when they weren't in town because she was loved and cared for locally by the Senior Saints Ministry Team.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Kempsville Christian Church Senior Saint's Ministry, 5424 Parliament Drive, Virginia Beach, VA 23462.
