Eddie Mae Bosley


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.

Friends may call Saturday December 1, 2018 at Lee Avenue United Methodist Church from 10 – 11 am with a Homegoing Celebration at 11am – 12 noon. Eulogy by Evangelist Rosalind Porter.

  • RP says:

    To Eddie’s family and friends, please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss. It’s so hard to lose someone we love, but the seeming finality of death is what makes it especially difficult. Job 14:14,15 gives us confidence that Jehovah God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. The Bible gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29″ May this bring you some comfort and strength, remembering that soon God will wipe away our tears and swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8)

  • Thelma Brooks says:

    To Tamara and Family: So sorry for the loss of your mother. May God strengthen you and give you His peace.

  • Nancy Donaldson says:

    Please accept our sincere sympathy for the loss of the beloved Eddie Mae. She was a patient of our Optometry practice for many, many years. She always brought a smile to our faces. She had a way of lightning up the room. She is shining brightly in heaven.
