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.
