Earlene Vasser-Moss was born Jan. 2, 1926 in Aubrey, to the late Lucy and Grover Vasser, Sr. Growing up in the Aubrey community, she accepted Christ at an early age at the Third Zion Baptist Church. At the age of 18, she married Nathandla Moss in 1944 and moved to his hometown of Lexa and later moved her church membership to the St. John Baptist Church. As a member there, she served in various positions, but she was passionate about singing and will always be remembered for her rendition of “Don’t Let the Devil Ride.”
In 1961, she became a member of Hebron Forrest #381, Order of the Eastern Star of Rondo.
As a wife and mother of 10 children, Earlene found great peace in singing praises unto God as she patiently embraced life “One Day at a Time.” Rearing her 10 children and four grandchildren, she has left a legacy that will forever be in not only their hearts but also in the hearts of all who got the privilege of knowing her.
