Johnice Ann Moses Wyant
MISSION – Johnice Ann Moses Wyant, 68, passed away on Saturday, June 25, 2022.
The daughter of a cotton ginner, she was born in Hobbs, New Mexico, on November 12, 1953. The family eventually settled in Mission, Texas, where her parents took over the cotton gin that was located at Three Mile Line and Conway Avenue.
She graduated from Mission High School in 1973. She married shortly after high school to a boy she met on a church hayride. After high school she went to cosmetology school and styled hair for many years. She went on to work at a local grocery store before eventually devoting her time and efforts to service at her church, First Baptist of Mission, and to any family and friends in need. She served at church in many different areas including the kitchen, planning functions, choir, youth, and in the nursery.
She was known to have a voice of an angel and shared her talents of singing and cooking wherever it was needed. She was known as a second mom to many, and then as a second grandma to the next generation.
She is remembered as a ray of sunshine. If you needed something, she usually had the answers. Many that served with her say that she was a true servant of God, and many blessings were received by those she served. She held a special place in many people’s hearts. To say she will be missed, is an understatement.
She is survived by her loving husband of 49 years, Ernest Stanley Wyant; two children, Carina Ann Brunson (Daniel), and George Stanley Wyant (Gloria); sibling, Mary Joy Barnes (Bob); and six grandchildren, Anastasia Brunson, Alexandria Brunson Weirich, Alisabeth Brunson, William Brunson, Joseph Wyant and Theodore Wyant.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Carey Allen Moses and Mary Hattie McQueen; brother, Malcom Moses; and sister, Wanda Sue Moses Long.
A memorial service to celebrate her life will be held at a future date by her church family.
