Earlene E. Oglevie, 85, of Cole Camp, Missouri passed away early Thursday morning, May 10, 2018 at the Golden Valley Memorial Hospital in Clinton, MO. 


She was the second of five children born to Clarence Moellman and Goldie (Schnakenberg) Moellman on July 14, 1932 in Fort Dodge, Iowa.  As a child she was baptized at the Lutheran Church in Fort Dodge.  She was later confirmed at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Cole Camp, MO.


Earlene graduated from Cole Camp High School in 1949.  After high school,  she moved to Kansas City, MO., and worked at Sears & Roebuck and Company.


She married Johnnie Youse of Sedalia, MO., in December 1954.  They had one daughter, Denise Ann.
