Mozell Haney Whitman

March 3, 1927 - August 26, 2023

Mozell Whitman, 96, of Nederland, died Saturday, August 26, 2023. She was born March 3, 1927, in Pineland, to Elzie Payne Haney and Ripley Watson Haney.

Mozell grew up in Call Junction, Texas. She went to high school in Kirbyville, however, would be most recognized with her girlfriends as the “Call girls.” These friends would remain lifelong friends and were often found playing cards, dominoes, or Rummikub. Mozell loved working puzzles, watching the Astros (win or lose), and occasionally trying her very good luck at the slots! Mozell was always willing to share her food, unless it was fried chicken or a hamburger. She was caught, on occasion, sharing with her furry pal, Todd. Mozell loved her family fiercely and she will be dearly missed.

Survivors include her children, Lisa Whitman McGlothin and Rob Whitman and wife, Paula; grandchildren, Ashley McGlothin and wife, Jessica; Blaine McGlothin; and Keaton Davis and husband, Aaron; great-grandchildren, Hannah Whitman, Izakk Whitman, Emilee Whitman, Ryann Whitman, Luke Davis, and Wren McGlothin; great-great-grandchild, Hazel Whitman; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and close family friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Robert Lamar Whitman, Sr.; brother, Roy Haney; sister, Wanda Grayson; and grandson, Robert Chad Whitman.
