VOGEL -- Marilyn Janice Blea Vogel The family of Marilyn Vogel invites you to join them in celebrating her birth into eternal life. Marilyn went home to God on March 8, 2011 surrounded by her loving family and caregivers. The Visitation will be Thursday 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m. at La Grone Funeral Chapel.

The Memorial Mass will be celebrated 10:00 a.m. Saturday, March 12 at St. Peter Church. Marilyn Janice Blea was born July 6, 1926 in Roswell, NM to John and Charlotte Blea. Before her graduation from Roswell High School in 1944, she met her sweetheart, Lt. Richard Vogel at a USO dance. Marilyn became a Catholic and she and Dick were married at St. Peter Church, beginning her lifelong love for the Church, service of God and passion for ministry. While raising her 12 children, Marilyn gave more than fifty years of service to St. Peter Church through the PTA, Catholic Daughters, CFM, Parish Council, RCIA, liturgy and retreat planning, Religious Education, including 6 years as CCD Coordinator and 27 years of creating and facilitating classes for adults. Anyone who crossed the threshold of 807 West Deming or St Peter Parish knew the welcoming embrace of Marilyn Vogel. She was an avid reader of thousands of books and never stopped learning or teaching. Her zest for knowledge led her to reach for the nearest reference volume, be it encyclopedia, map, atlas, dictionary or science book to satisfy her curiosity. She was a very gifted woman. Her creativity was expressed through gardening, writing and sharing her stories, designing and making banners as well as sewing for her family, including many wedding and bridesmaid's dresses for her daughters. Out of love for the men in her life, she learned to tolerate sports and became an avid fan of the Lakers. Her love of nature included rides to the country, days in the mountains, camping trips and accepting every imaginable critter into her home. Marilyn graciously shared these passions with her family, creating a living legacy. Marilyn was preceded in death by her husband of 64 years, Dick Vogel, and her parents and two sisters, Patsy Stone and Sylvia George. She is survived by her twelve children: Jan McKee and husband Jerry, Vicky (Frances) Montao and husband David, Babs Morris and husband Peter, Cathy Gregory and husband Pat, Julie Adams and husband Mike, Tish Resnik and husband Bill, Betsy Buckel and husband Jim, John Vogel and wife Sylvia, Bob Vogel, Tom Vogel, Jim Vogel and wife Christen, and Valerie Vogel. She is also survived by thirty-eight grandchildren: Vicky Moon and husband David, Mike McKee and wife Suzanne, Steve McKee and wife Shelly, Melissa McQuerry and husband Carl, Daniel Montao and wife Jodi, Taho Morris and Maddy, Mason Morris, Mitchell Morris, Daniel Gregory and wife Lori Kane, Jim Gregory, Michael Adams, Brad Adams and wife Kristi, Matt Adams and Amanda, Steven John Sunday and fiance Loretta Males, Will Sergeant and wife Paige, Chris Buckel, Kay Craft and husband Shon, Matt Vogel, Julie Vogel, Andrew Vogel, Samantha Vogel, Grayson Vogel, Sage Vogel, Makaela Vogel, Hannah Marko, Rebekah Marko, Leah Marko, and Naomi Marko.

Boor; Nicholas Montao and Ava Jade McQuerry; Aloura, Skylar and Daniel Montao; Hunter and Haley Adams; Serenity and Isabella Adams; Steven and Alexandra Sunday, Camryn James, Hipolito Gurule; Taylor and Trenton Sergeant; Joshua and Allison Craft. Marilyn is also survived by one beloved sister, Charlotte Boswell, as well as many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. Marilyn's family wishes to express sincere gratitude to all those that offered her warm and loving care, especially her primary care givers, Bertha, Claudia, and Gloria. Donations may be made in Marilyn's memory to St. Peter Catholic Church or the Poor Clare Monastery. Friends and family may give their condolences online at www.lagronefuneralchapels.com Arrangements are under the direction of LaGrone Funeral Chapel
