Contributor Two Contributor Two
Friends and family gathered on February 24 to say goodbye to one of Southern Gospel's finest, songwriter/arranger Mosie Lister. Thomas Mosie Lister was born on September 8, 1921, and passed from this life on February 12, 2015, at the age of 93. His "homegoing celebration" was held February 24 at the People's Church in Franklin, Tennessee.

The Booth Brothers performed several of Lister's classic songs, as did the Homecoming choir, led by Bill Gaither. The performances included “How Long Has It Been?” “Feeling Mighty Fine,” “Still Feelin’ Fine,” “ Where No One Stands Alone,” “Goodbye World, Goodbye,” “Then I Met the Master,” “Till the Storm Passes By,” “While the Ages Roll” and "I Can Feel His Hand in Mine,” a Mosie Lister song that was recorded by Elvis Presley.

Steve Mauldin, Michael Booth, Ronnie Booth, Jim Brady, Josh Butterworth and Jake Sammons served as pallbearers. Honorary pallbearers were Bill Gaither, Joe Huffman, Ron Booth, David Williams and Jimmie Vann.

Mosie Lister was laid to rest in a private graveside service at Williamson Memorial Gardens.
