Retha Ann (Harvey/Mansfield) Vogt was born on March 21,1934 in Independence, Kanas, to Carrol and Mary Alice Harvey, later to be adopted by Leo and Sarah Mansfield after their passing when she was 13, along with her 3 siblings; Rose, Raymond, and Betty moving them to Oklahoma. She attended and graduated from Holy Trinity Catholic School in Okarche, where she later met Leo Vogt, marrying him on November 25, 1955, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. They moved to the farm NW of Okarche, where they raised their 3 children, Don, John, and Lisa, and were married for almost 44 years. She later moved to Ashton on the Greens in El Reno for several years. As she struggled with dementia, she moved and stayed with her daughter’s family until she moved into an assisted living facility, eventually to a nursing home where she continued to struggle with Alzheimer’s. Finally, she was moved back to her daughter’s home under Living Care Hospice, which provided wonderful care and support. She went to be with the Lord very peacefully on August 25th, surrounded by family.
