Elisabeth attended elementary school at Gooseneck, graduating from Salado High School in 1937. She attended one semester at Texas Women’s University. She was a member of Salado United Methodist Church until she married her wonderful husband, Allen Derward Mosley on November 28, 1939 in Elm Springs, Texas in rural Bell County. They settled in San Angelo, TX where she joined San Angelo First Baptist Church and was very active. While in San Angelo, she was mom to her two sons and also worked as a medical assistant to TB hospital, dentist, doctor, and chiropractor. She enjoyed her creative side by making ceramics, crocheting, sewing, quilting, etching glass but she never worked on or read anything before reading her Bible each day. Upon retirement, she and Derward moved back to Prairie Dell and joined First Baptist Church of Salado. After Derward’s death, she moved in with her son and his family in Austin and she joined The Church at Canyon Creek where she was greatly admired and inspired many people.
