Beverly Mosley

Beverly Mosley, 57

Died: September 12, 2008
When her colleagues speak about Beverly and her work, they mention her compassion and her knack for knowing when someone needed a hug. They say she had an ability to connect with people and a smile that would light up a room. She was known as a 'guardian angel' to our patients and their families during some of the most challenging times in their lives.
— Dr. Benjamin K. Chu, president of Kaiser Permanente Southern California
Mosely was an ombudsman for Panorama City Medical Center and had worked for Kaiser Permanente in a variety of roles for more than 20 years, according to a company e-mail. In his e-mail, Chu said Mosely was survived by her mother and two adult daughters, Nicki and Tina, and a two-month-old grandson, Kingston. "She enjoyed music, especially jazz, and had a beautiful singing voice," he wrote. "She also liked to travel and golf."

I used to ride this train and got to know Bev. She was a sweet carring lady that loved her family. I stopped riding the train when I was transfered to Santa Clarita from Van Nuys. I had ridden a few times in the past year and Bev remembered me. We talked and at the time her grandson had not been born yet but she was very excited about the comming of her grandchild. My heart goes out to her family. Make sure that Kingston knows what a geat lady his gramms was.
She will be missed

It was my privilege to know Beverly Mosley, RN (note this is the correct spelling of her last name) for the past six years and work very closely with her over the past year at Kaiser Panorama City. Bev was a consummate professional, calm, passionate about improving patient care, knowledgeable, and unfailingly pleasant. She will be sorely missed, and long remembered, by her friends and colleagues at Kaiser Permanente.

Bev, I will miss our talks in your office and the yearly "girls getaways" to destinations unknown. Your hugs, laughter and love will be in my heart forever.

To the Family, I know the love you shared will provide you with the strength you will need to move forward. As you begin to build a different life without Bev, know she will be beside you helping you and loving you. Your friends and family will be there to support and guide you. We will be there to hold your hand and to hug you when you are lonely and sad. It is important to carry Bev's dreams and move ahead holding onto her love for you, her children, and grandson as this will be part of her legacy.

People who have had the privilege of knowing Bev need not tell you what a wonderful person she was. We are all truly blessed to have known her, if for even a brief time.

She was just elected President of our Alumni Association of Phillips Graduate Institute, where she received one of her several degrees. All of us knew she would be great in that position, because she could generate such a warm rapport with people almost instantly. She'll be greatly missed; it's a tragic loss for all of us.

Rest in Peace, Bev.

Beverly, you will truly be missed. Your smile, your kind words and your spirit are forever ingrained in my heart. I hear your contageous laughter in my head and I see your smiling face before me. You are the epitome of a loving, kind, gentle and caring person and I will aspire to emulate these qualities throughout my life. I love you and I will think of you always.

This is your friend "Cheungy." I can't even write this with dry eyes. You were my friend for 20 years and a witness to a very important stage of my life. I just know you are sharing these stories with friends in Heaven right now and having a great laugh at my expense. Enjoy now your very deserved respite. I remember your smile, your impish laugh, our philosophical chats, and most recently, our brunch with the gang. You gave so much to people, I think, because there was so much to you as a person. You were complex, beautiful, soulful, and full of life. I think you know how much I will miss you. I love you.

You have always been a kind and loving support to me. I hope in some small way I was the same for you. You were always a role model for our Diva Group -polished, confident, pretty, vibrant.....yes, we were all Beverly wannabe's.....We were always so glad when something funny happened because your laugh was fabulous and everyone would get caught up in your laughter and it would get even funnier.
We didn't have enough time together and for that I will be forever saddened.
I will keep my spirit up by thinking about you and all you have accomplished and were about to accomplish.
I will listen to music differently from now on...wondering how you might interpret the musical piece and why.
You are in my heart.
I will miss you ....the Divas will miss you........
I hope that I can model all your special qualities and become the best that I can be.
The Divas will support one another ....that is part of your legacy.
Rest and be peaceful.

There is a saying that God only takes the good ones and in your case, this is an absolute truth. You are a beloved niece and cousin. Those of us in Ohio will greatly miss you. Thank you for leaving behind a legacy of excellence where the future generations of our family will look back on with awe and with pride. We miss you very much and though you were like a guardian angel here on earth, please watch out for us from the sky.

We love you and we will miss you.

I will remember sharing dinners at Bev's favorite place, Cafe Bijou and how Bev always had a kind word to share and to encourage. It was fun, spending a short time in Las Vegas too for Bev's birthday weekend. These are memories never to be forgotton. I am honored to have known Bev personally and professionally. She was a person to admire.
To Bev's family, may you find comfort and peace in your hearts knowing that Bev was loved so very much and that her spirit will live forever.

To Beverly's Family,
This is such a great loss for you, and for all of us within her Kaiser Permanente family. She will be missed, and there will be a void in the compassionate example she set. She loved her work, and the people around her. It showed in every action she took each day. Our prayers are with all of you, and we know Bev will live on in our memories. May you find comfort in your memories. Fondly, Pam C.

I have known and loved Bevy for a very long time. I recall her transition from an RN on the floors at Kaiser to joining the "A" team in hospital administration. She was a wonderful woman to know and work with. Her cheerful smile just lit up the room. We will miss you Bevy, but know that you are in the hands of our Lord and at peace.
My prayers are with your girls and new grandson.

To know Beverly is to love Beverly. She has touched so many lives in so many profound ways. She made my father belive in love again. She was to me, the epitome of a strong black woman. Beautiful, soulful, intelligent, articulate, and always carried herself with such style and grace. I am so blessed and thankful that God brought her into our lives, if only for such a short time. Bev, I love you dearly, and you will always live on in my heart and my memories. Jovan and I will forever remember your smile and all of the wonderful times we shared.We will continue to make you proud. Love Always, Your daughter from another mother

I hadn't seen Beverly in probably 20 years, but I remember her laugh and beautiful smile instantly on hearing of her passing. What a wonderful soul she was. My love and prayers go out to Tina and Nicki at this time. Your mom was so proud of you two and you are a wonderful legacy to the life she made for you. God bless you both and I hope Kingston will feel the loving heritage he has and walk in God's ways. May God give comfort and peace to you all.

I believe your gigantic beautiful smile, warm genuine hugs, and the lyrical tone in which you called me 'darling' was a gift you unselfishly shared and will be forever be etched in my mind, cherished in my heart, and is confirmation of your ability to touch ones' soul - I am so grateful for having known you, I will miss you dearly. Please watch over us all.

Oh Bev, how you will be missed. You were such a shining light and your passing leaves a tremendous void. You were a powerful,joyous presence for many people and that is so very true for your fellow Ombudsmen. I have known and worked with you for 20 years and during that time have so often been amazed by your strength and wisdom.
I hope that your beautiful family can find some peace in their precious memories and in knowing that you have enriched many lives and left an indelible impression on so very many people.

I hold her in my heart and pray that time will ease your pain and it its place will be fond memories of a "classy" woman loved by many.

I only had the pleasure of meeting Beverly on two occasions through my friend, her sister Naomi. We briefly joked about how beautiful our shared name was.

Beverly, from the moment we met in the box seats @ the Hollywood Bowl, I knew you would be a friend for life. Your laughter and peaceful spirit grabbed me right away, as we chatted all through the jazz concert that night - me and my friend and you and your daughter, Tina, sharing stories as if we had known each other all of our lives. I am thankful that I had the pleasure of meeting you, and, even though it was just for a short time, you will be missed! You were a rare friend and one I will always hold close to my heart!

Beverly and I graduated from high school in 1969 in Daytona Beach, Florida. She was a friend and loved by everyone. She was always smart, ambitious and compassionate.

My heart goes out to Nikki and Tina. My heart aches knowing Beverly is gone. Tina you said it best "she was a survivor..and had no regrets..". But most of all she was the BEST mother to the both of you. She saw the both of you through a lot, I know because I was there part of the way. I know your mom is very, very PROUD of the both of you. The last time I talked to her she was beaming and she had gushed how happy she was to be your mother. Rest assured she will be in our hearts forever. Her smile and gentle quality will be missed.

I have been following this incident ever since it happened. I have been reading many posts on the people who have passed on. I was doing okay until I read Tina's post (daughter of Beverly Mosley). My sympathy goes out to your family. While I read your short sentences, tears came to my eyes and made me want to give my mom a big hug. Tomorrow is not promised and we don't know how long our stay is down here on Earth. So, knowing what you're going through in the loss of your mom, makes me want to renew my relationship with my mother. We only get one mom. It was a reason I was supposed to read your post, Tina. Your mother seemed like she touched so many peoples lives. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers. Your mom is brightening up Heaven now with her gorgeous smile.

Dearest Tina,

Your mother's celebration was amazing. You were amazing; so strong, so beautiful, so kind; greating everyone with so much class and a big smile from your heart. As I stood in the back of the church, I could not stop my heart from weaping. My heart kept weaping in agreement with everything that everyone said about her. It was obvious that one didn't have to be a friend for 20 years to have the previlage of being touched by her. I only knew Beverly for about a month and a half, yet I got to know her and connected with her in a way that is rare. We talked about so many plans both personal and professional. I never forget the last thing she said to me, "it looks like we have a lot to do," and that is why I just could not understand why she had to go. Well, I farewell to her soul and send my love to you and your sister and the new angle in the family. I know that God and your mom are watching over you.
With all my heart,
Manijeh & Daniel

Though we all may have lost someone who is a big part of our lives and our hearts and we are not able to replace or fill that emptyness that our love ones have taken with them when they left this world. but i hope that maybe we all can come together and allow each other to come into each others lives since i know that we all share the same pain. when my father passed in that metrolink 2008 crash my life has not been the same and its been very difficult, my father left behind his wife and 5 children and so many grand children, and we all miss and love him so much but talkin about him with my family and remembering all the good times we had with him helps us with our pain of losing him. so i just would like to let you all know i am here if you need to talk or just someone to listen to you. my email is

my hearts and prayers go out to you.

We didn't know Beverly but our son Christopher may have. He also was killed in the train crash and our hearts go out to your family as you deal with this loss. May the memories you have of her sustain you through this most difficult time.

To Bev's family. She was taken from you.....from all of us much too soon. I met Bev three years ago when I came to work for KP. She was a mentor and a 2nd mother to me. I remember our trips to Vegas and me venting frustration in her office. If only I can live the rest of my life the way she lived hers. She will truly be missed. Your friend and admirer, Tracey Bush

I just found out about Beverly's passing through the CSUN Alum News magazine. I knew Beverly when I worked at KP Panorama City. Beverly was a lovely, beautiful woman. She was impeccable, professional, and down to earth all at the same time. I had the pleasure of hearing her sing once and never forgot her talent. To Beverly's family - I am so sorry for your loss. I hope time will ease your pain. Sincerely, Heidi Braverman
