Moleana Mason Carson of Denton and Greenwood, Texas passed away on June 6, 2019. She was born July 18, 1926 on the Wise and Denton County line near Allison, Texas to C.D. Mason and Rose Gamble Mason. She graduated from Slidell High School. She was a nurse at Roger's Hospital in Decatur, Texas. In 1949, Othello and E.W. Carson encouraged her to care of their son after his surgery. The match lead to her marriage to Charles L. Carson on April 4, 1950 at the First United Methodist Church in Decatur. They celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary shortly before his death in 2015. Moleana was nurse, a gardener, flower designer, oil painter of landscapes and bluebonnets, and the designer of the Big Foot Cattle Co. cartoon series.

Moleana loved traveling throughout the U.S. with family to historic and nature areas. She loved people and never met a stranger. Her daughter recalled staying at the J.W. Marriott in Washington, DC, three years after Moleana had last visited the hotel and the staff asking if her Mom had made the trip because they loved visiting with her. She and Charles organized creative activities including the annual Carson Cookout in Greenwood. She adored jewelry and sparkly attire.
