OBITUARY - LEOTA (HARSH) HOGUE

Leota (HARSH) HOGUE was born on January 7, 1898 to Isaac M. and Harriet (HILL) HARSH along with her twin sister, Leola. She was one of nine children. She passed away on March 9, 2000 at the Mount Ayr Health Care Center, Mount Ayr, Iowa where she had been a resident since October, 1992.

On July 31, 1915 she married William Harvey HOGUE. To this union were born four children: Francis Merritt "Short", Lyle Harvey, Ava and Clara Mae. Harvey and Leota farmed around the Ringgold county, Iowa area until the 1950's when they moved to Kellerton, Iowa. Leota cared for the elderly in her home while living in Kellerton.

Leota and Harvey spent many winters in California with their son Short HOGUE and wife Jean. After Harvey's death Leota continued to spend the winters there with Short, his wife and children.

Leota enjoyed her family and many friends. She was always ready for a game of cards, dice, board game or putting a puzzle together. She maintained her own home, living at Heritage Park Apartments for a number of years before moving to the Mount Ayr Health Care Center. She remained very active and enjoyed taking care of her flowers, but was always ready to travel to visit family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; four brothers and four sisters; sons, F. M. "Short" and Lyle; and two grandsons, Stephen GRIM and Lee HOGUE.

She is survived by her daughters, Ava GRIM of Bennett, Colorado and Clara Mae GRIMM (husband Lowell) of Chillicothe, Missouri; daughters-in-law, Irene HOGUE of Creston and Jean HOGUE of Exeter, California; 13 grandchildren and many great- and great-great-grandchildren.

Services were held on Saturday, March 11, 2000 at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home of Mount Ayr with Pastor Rick HAWKINS officiating. Casket bearers were Ray GRIMM, Rodney GRIMM, Larry HOGUE, Lyle HOGUE, Scott HOGUE and Kevin HOGUE.

Leota was laid to rest in the Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton. Arrangements were made by Jones-Smith Funeral Home, Upland, Indiana and Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home, Diagonal.
