Obituary for Mary Jo Mosser

January 19, 1937 - August 8, 2020
San Antonio, Texas | Age 83


Mary Josephine (Mary Jo) Schoppe Mosser gained her heavenly wings on August 8, 2020, at the age of 83. Born to Lee V. and Emily Schoppe on January 19, 1937, she was the younger of identical twins. Mary Jo grew up working in the family business, "Lee's Café". "The twins", as they were known, were majorettes and graduated from Caldwell High School. She later attended Blinn Business College in Brenham and gained employment in Houston. Soon after, she met her soulmate, Emmanuel Leo Mosser in San Antonio, and they were married 3 months later. They were the proud parents of two boys, Emmanuel Joseph (E.J.) and Brian Matthew. Mary Jo was fortunate to be a stay-at-home mom who took pride in providing a "comfortable home" for her family.

Mary Jo and Leo were devout Catholics and were a founding family of St. Pius X Catholic Church, where she remained a member until her death.

The family enjoyed traveling in their RV, especially to the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado. Before becoming ill, Mary Jo enjoyed bowling, dancing, cheering on the Dallas Cowboys and traveling back home to visit friends and family in Caldwell.

Mary Jo was preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Leo and by siblings: Gloria Kocurek and Donald Schoppe. She is survived by her sons and their spouses, EJ and Kimberly, and Brian and Shelley and 3 grandchildren, Payton, Levi and Luke. She is also survived by siblings, Geraldine Pivonka, Barbara Shenkir and identical twin, Margaret Joy (Joy) Turman, along with many nieces and nephews.

Rosary will be held on Monday, August 31, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. at St. Pius X Catholic Church with funeral mass immediately following. Internment with immediate family will follow at Holy Cross Cemetery.

The family would like to send their sincere gratitude to Arden Courts Memory Care and Alamo Hospice for the care they gave to Mary Jo.
