Selma Baumert Mouser Mott
Services for Selma Baumert Mouser Mott, 96, of Zavalla, were held at 2:00 p.m. Monday, April 28, 2014 in the Gipson Funeral Home Chapel, with Reverend Richard Johnson and Reverend Bob Brock officiating.  A private interment took place in Brookside Cemetery in Houston.
Mrs. Mott was born May 11, 1917 in Houston, Texas, the daughter of the late Mary (Addicks) and Johnn M. Baumert.  She passed away Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at Huntington Heathcare Center.
As a youngster, her nickname became “Tuffy”.  She could run and was very athletic – to say it right, she was “Tuff”.  She then met Freddy, her husband-to-be!  He misunderstood their term of description and turned it into his term of endearment, “Tubby”.  She loved it; he loved it; and many today still refer to her as Tubby.  She was a homemaker by trade, but she found her enjoyment in hunting and fishing.  And another attribute was her ability to “talk a blue streak”.  But Mrs. Selma loved the Lord and His church.  While living in Houston, she had become and served as an ordained minister.  After moving to East Texas, she joined the Shady Chapel United Methodist Church in Zavalla.  She dearly loved her East Texas friends, family and her church family.
Survivors include her niece, Janet Smith of Pinehurst, Texas; great-niece, Dana Snider and husband Tab of Pinehurst, Texas; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives, neighbors, and church family.
In addition to her parents, Mrs. Mott was preceded in death by her husbands, Freddy Mouser and H. D. “Dee” Mott; daughter, Melba Teague; brothers, Max, Fred and Paul Baumert; and sisters, Martha Plaster and Marie Baumert.
