Elizabeth K. Mozingo, a former Army nurse, died Tuesday of heart failure at Genesis Eldercare Long Green Center in North Baltimore. She was 84.

Born Elizabeth King in Durham County, N.C., Mrs. Mozingo was a graduate of Rex Hospital School of Nursing in Raleigh, N.C.

She enlisted in the Army Nursing Corps after graduation and served in World War II and the Korean conflict.

In the Army, she met Milford J. Mozingo, also of North Carolina. They married in Manila, Philippines, in 1950 and spent their honeymoon in Tokyo.

The couple traveled throughout the United States, the Caribbean and the Pacific Islands. Mrs. Mozingo worked as a nurse in Alaska, where her husband was stationed with the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

In 1964, the family moved to Marion, Ill., where Mrs. Mozingo continued work as a nurse. She retired in 1987 and moved to Baltimore in 1990, where she lived with her daughter.

Services will be held in July in Marion, Ill., where Mrs. Mozingo's husband, who died in 1967, is buried.

Mrs. Mozingo is survived by two daughters, Gerry Wakeland of Moweaqua, Ill., and Barbara Mozingo of Baltimore; a brother, Thomas King of Ocala, Fla.; and four grandchildren.
