Leona's Grandchildren
Leona J. Mogck was born on February 22, 1935 to Jacob and Mary (Tschetter) Walter near Freeman, South Dakota. Leona accepted Jesus as her savior and was baptized at Tyndall Baptist Church when she was in the 8th grade. She graduated from Tyndall High School in 1953 and attended Southern State College in Springfield. After completing her associate teaching degree, she taught school for 7 years in Tripp. On June 9, 1957, Leona was united in marriage to Duane Mogck. They spent a life time farming together near Olivet. After retiring in 1989, they moved to Scotland. Leona and Duane were members of the United Church of Christ in Scotland. Leona taught Sunday School, sang in the church choir, and was also very active within the UCC Women’s Fellowship.
Together with their friends, Charlotte and Shorty Thum, Leona and Duane sang as a quartet at many family and friends’ funerals. For many years she sang with the Scotland Community Choir. She was also an active member of the Scotland Hospital Auxiliary, the Scotland Civic Club, and the Red Hat Society. She was also involved with the SD Cattleman’s Auxiliary and the SD Angus Auxiliary. Leona took great pride in promoting beef and Angus cattle not only as her family business but as a wonderful way of life. As a mother and grandmother, she loved being involved with her sons and grandchildren at Scotland High School as their biggest sports fan. Leona went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on October 5, 2016, at the age of 81.
She is survived by her husband Duane Mogck of Scotland; sons: Dean (Patty) Mogck of Olivet and Charles (LeAndra) Mogck of Olivet; seven grandchildren: Nicole (Dan) Bowen of Colman, Kyle (Christy) Mogck of Olivet, Dalton and Hannah Mogck of Olivet, and Christina, Chase, and Ty of Olivet; five great-grandchildren: Rowdy, McCoy, Nash, Tynlee, and Wyatt; brother Carney (Betty) Walter of Sioux Falls; and sisters-in-law Darlene Pearson of Sioux Falls and Norma Mogck of Tripp.
Leona was preceded in death by her parents; five sisters: Clara Tiede, Elizabeth Schnabel, Bertha Elpert, Marie Kiehlbaugh, and Lily Rose Ortmann; and one brother, Max Walter.

Our deepest sympathy to the family. What a wonderful lady and a great friend. She always had a smile and a kind word to say and as a former member of the UCC choir, I can say she made rehearsals fun. We were blessed to have known her. May God comfort the family.

Leona's Family I just want to express my deepest sympathy to Leona's Family. I met Leona when she first came to Tripp to teach. When I preached at Scotland about 5 years ago, she was an excellent hostess as she and Duane invited myself and my two sisters to lunch. A true friend. Don Lagge

We will always remember Leona and her hospitality. Pastor Del always knew that when he went to the house that he would be welcomed and treated well. Duane always used her as an "excuse" no matter whether he was late for a meeting or wasn't able to do something. In the end, I know that he loves her dearly. Please know that our sympathies are with you. God will be with you through this difficult time.
