Eddie Mae Bosley ‘Candi’, age 89, of Columbus, OH, was born on November 14, 1929 and went home to the Lord on November 21, 2018.
Eddie Bosley, a member of Lee Avenue United Methodist Church, had served God in the capacity of Sunday School Teacher, Communion Stewart, Financial Secretary, Choir member, a Soloist, together with her mother – sewing aprons for church, and as one of a trio who oversaw the BBQ dinners for church fundraising – just to name a few.
Outside of her church roles, Candi did volunteer work – amongst her volunteer life, she volunteered at Tray Lee Center. During the summer lunch program and the summer work program as well.
Candi was very active in her children’s activities: driving them to their music lessons, band practice, after school activities, attending recitals and volunteering at school lunches and in their classroom.
She loved being outdoors. Gardening began one of the outdoor passions for her. It was not just flowers, but vegetable gardening also. During most mornings at harvest time, you could find Candi out early on her front porch harvesting the vegetables that the animals didn’t steal. When spring came around, Candi would be outside prepping the ground for the summer flowers planted – elephant ears, cannons, lilies, four-o’clock, hostas and many other flowers she had a love for. She could often be seen mowing the grass on the riding lawnmower.
She is preceded in death by her husband Carnell Bosley; daughter Orlena Bosley; father Ed Fost; and mother Jeroleaner Fost.
She leaves behind to cherish her memories her son, Cornell (Debbie) Bosley; daughters, Tamara Jean Bosley and Deirdre Bosley; grandson, Cornell Alexander Bosley; brother, Willie James (Marcella) Fost; niece, Willmetta M. Fost; cousin, Nancy Thomas; sister-in-law, Lucretta Toney; brother-in-law, George Crawford, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, and extended family.
