Sibyl Moses, 92, a retired lobbyist for civil rights and senior citizens causes who lived here for over 35 years before returning to her native Alabama in 1981, died Sept. 16 at a hospital in Birmingham, Ala., after a heart attack and stroke. She lived in Birmingham.
Miss Moses was one of seven Washington women honored in 1978 by the Washington chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. She was the recipient of a plaque for her work in civil rights.
Her efforts in this field were recognized earlier by President Lyndon B. Johnson, who invited her to attend the signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Among the causes for which she successfully worked was a bill providing more than $400,000 for the restoration of the Frederick Douglass Home here.
She was affiliated with the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs from 1945 to 1980. She also worked with senior citizens groups. From 1972 to 1981, when she lived at the Roosevelt for Senior Citizens here, she did church work there.
Miss Moses was a graduate of Clark College in Atlanta.
Survivors include four sisters, Carol Gullins of Philadelphia, Sarah Moses of Birmingham, and Louise Moses and Agnes M. Davis, both of Los Angeles.
