Mobley was part of a group who spearheaded the fight to bring a hospital to South Los Angeles residents after the 1965 Watts riot. The result was Martin Luther King Hospital, later known as Martin Luther King/Drew Medical Center.
Kenneth Mobley said his mother also was instrumental in the opening of the Charles Drew Medical School which opened doors for African Americans and other minorities to train in the health care field.
Funeral services were scheduled for Friday, July 29 in Los Angeles.
