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."
Keep in mind
- The Times initially mispelled the name of Michael Hammersley and Beverly Mosley.
- The coroner's office reported a 26th victim the afternoon of Sept. 15, but a few hours later said the tally was 25.
