Barbara Jean Mosley died Wednesday, March 21, 2018, at Kavanagh House in Des Moines. She was born in Albia, Iowa on July 1, 1931, to Mike and Elizabeth Mosley and lived in Albia for most of her life.

She began her nearly 40 year teaching career as a country school teacher in Monroe County and closed it by teaching 25 years in the Albia Public School System. Her work in improving reading skills in early childhood brought her acclaim and awards.
