Betty Mozelle Linton Vogel passed away in Sweet Home, Oregon, October 25, 2008. Betty was born in Velma, Oklahoma on July 4, 1935. Her family moved to Dale, Illinois where she graduated from McLeansboro High School in 1951. After attending business college in St.Louis, Missouri, Betty lived with her family in Algiers, Louisiana. The surviving family moved to Baldwin Park, California in 1955.

In California, while working at Aerojet, Betty met her future husband, Donald Arthur Vogel. The two married in June of 1956. The couple moved to Sweet Home, Oregon in the early sixties where they had a small, but successful, cattle ranch on Wiley Creek Drive. There, Betty displayed her extensive skills at canning, baking, and casseroles.

Their son, Robert Arthur Vogel, was born in 1965, and, soon after, they moved to Redlands, California where they started a computer data processing company. They returned to their Oregon ranch in 1977.

During the eighties, Betty earned a Bachelor of Science degree in anthropology and a Master’s degree in archaeology from Oregon State University. She worked for several years as a curator for the Marion County Museum in Salem. Betty’s interests included gardening, watercolor painting, playing the piano, and studying the history of the American West. She loved spending time with her close friends and family.

Betty was preceded in death by her father and her husband.

She is survived by her mother, Beatrice Copeland of Sweet Home; son, Robert Vogel (Leslie Funderburg) of Portland; brother, Dale Ray Linton (Cinde) of Ontario, California; brother-in-law, Dick Vogel, of Keizer; two nieces, one great-niece, and one great-nephew.
