Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Mozell Williams Dangerfield was born into this life on January 19, 1938 in Curtis, Arkansas, to the union of Christine McNeil Jones and Limon L. Williams. At an early age she confessed Christ and was a member of Mt. Friendship Baptist Church, in Curtis, Arkansas. Mozell’s primary education was obtained in Curtis, Arkansas. She later attended Dunbar High School in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Mozell met her sweetheart, the very enthusiastic George A. Dangerfield. After an appropriate courtship, they moved to the Open Banks Community, where she became a member of Oak Grove AME Church. They married on August 10, 1956, and to this union eight children were born. After Oak Grove AME Church was dissolved, she moved her membership to St. Paul AME Church in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.
Mozell was a wonderful cook who would bake almost any sweet from scratch, with her favorite desert being Coconut Cream Pie. She was highly creative in making many crafts. She loved to sew and make quilts. She also had a very green thumb. She knew how to plant any type of flower to beautify her home. Mozell also enjoyed fishing, listening to music, and dancing.
Mozell loved to help people. She worked at Arkadelphia Head Start, Henderson State University, First Baptist Church, and Area Agency on Aging where she later retired. However, her work was not done. She then joined the Foster Grandparent Program.
She was a faithful member of St. Paul AME Church by serving with the Women’s Missionary Society, City Wide Ushers, and Hospitality Committee. She was also a member of the Widow’s Group where they had great fellowship.
