Jeannette resident manages senior center and a whole lot more
Jeannette Senior Center manager, wife, mother and advocate for people with Alzheimer's disease are a few of the titles that city resident Robin Mozley has adopted.
Mozley lives on the north side of Jeannette and works at the Senior Center, located in Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on Gaskill Avenue, where she is the manager.
She is married to Chris Mozley, who works for Peoples Dominion Gas, and the couple moved here in 1991 when Chris Mozley was transferred.
The couple has three children, all graduates of Jeannette High School. Christopher Mozley is married and lives with his wife, Lily, and their son, Atticus, in Jeannette.
Christopher, like his father, graduated from the Art Institute in Pittsburgh and works for the gas company.
Brandon Mozley attended Kent State University where he majored in conservation.
He is living in Boynton Beach, Fla., where he works for a company that staffs hospitals.
Lindsey Mozley is a graduate of Penn State University, with a degree in psychology.
She works for UPMC in a homeless continuum program.
Robin Mozley enjoys her grandson and cooking.
“I love to read and I love cooking. I like to cook anything. Grilling, ribs, lasagna and all the different ethnic foods, but not so much baking,” said Mozley.
She also plays the piano.
“There is probably no instrument I couldn't play, but I always played the piano. I don't play as much anymore.”
Last year, Mozley was appointed by Gov. Tom Corbett to serve on the Pennsylvania Alzheimer's Disease Planning Committee.
There were 17 appointees to the committee who held regional meetings all over the state.
“There were doctors, personal care home owners and we even had a member with early onset Alzheimer's on the committee.
“We made a plan for Pennsylvania as to what will be done in the future for residents with Alzheimer's. It is going to reach epidemic proportions. I don't think there are any of us who have not been touched by it, or know someone who suffers from it,” said Mozley who has several relatives who have been affected by the disease.
Mozley is a deacon at the First Baptist Church and has helped with meals for the Bridges to Prosperity Initiative through her church.
