Robin Mozley is the Jeannette Senior Center manager and has been appointed by Governor Tom Corbett to serve on the Pennsylvania Alzheimer's Planning Committee.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
