In Loving Memory of Rosita Florence Mouton

After 66 years, Rosita Florence Mouton completed her life’s journey on Tuesday, July 15th, 2008 in Limon, Costa Rica.

Rosita was born on October 25, 1941 to the late Halstead and Florence Omeir-Hodgson in Bluefields, Nicaragua.  While there, she was a committed member of Revival Tabernacle Evangelist Church under the leadership of Brother Emory and Sister Betty Wine.  As a faithful member of the church, she worked diligently to help support her church and family.  Rosita loved to sing in the choir and play the piano by ear. At the tender age of 27, she left the comfort of her parents’ home and beloved country and traveled to the United States to provide a better life for her and family where she resided with her eldest sister, Frieda Joseph.

While living in Washington, DC, she met her husband of 39 years, Joseph Allen Mouton, and through this union they were blessed with four beautiful children; Jeffrey Lee, Terry Allen, Miguel Antonio and Natasha Lynn.

Rosita was a devoted member of Faith Moravian Church where she sang with the Chancellor choir.  She supported the efforts and accomplishments of her family and friends faithfully.  In addition to mothering and nurturing her family, her life was one of quiet pioneering and complete selflessness.  This was true of her job as well, a hard and dedicated worker.  Rosita was viewed as extended family to the Madaleno’s and the Newman’s who she worked with for over 30 years.  She was a confidante, friend, and supporter to many.  Rosita shared her many life experiences with hopes of soothing, encouraging or inspiring.  The world is a better place from having her here for 66 years.  We will miss her dearly but will never forget her teachings, inspirations, and devotion to God. Rest in peace…Job well done!

Rosita is survived by her husband of 39 years, Joseph Allen Mouton, three beloved sons; Jeffrey Lee (Adela), Terry Allen (Nikki), Miguel Antonio and one beloved daughter Natasha Lynn; five grandchildren; Jalen Allen, Jared Aliar, Miles Christopher, Sydney Lauren, and Idris Aamir.  Rosita was preceded in death by her parents and eldest brother; Waldo Hodgson.  She is survived by an uncle, Envoy Hodgson; nine sisters; Freida Joseph, Lynette (Winston) Wilson, Maise (David) Pringle, Nelly (Guy) Sloan, Cheryl (Floyd) Carter, Carolyn Hodgson, Yvette (Reynold) Hawkins, Susana (Gregory) Walters, Gloria Hodgson and four brothers;  Carlos (Pearl) Hodgson, Ivor (Judith) Hodgson, Kenneth (Alda) Hodgson, and Enis (Elvia) Hodgson; three sisters in-law;  Mary Martha (Adam II) Pierre, Hazel Mouton, Theresa Ann Mouton and three brothers in-law; Joseph Elius (Rochelle) Mouton Jr., Joseph Roland Mouton, Joseph Prescott Mouton and an abundance of cousins; nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
