Jeannine “Didi” Marie Vogl

Jeannine “Didi” Marie Vogl, 32, of Independence, Mo. passed away March 22, 2014 at her home after a courageous battle with cancer. Visitation will be held at Abundant Life Baptist Church in Lee’s Summit, Missouri on Thursday, March 27, 2014 from 9:30-11 am with Memorial Service immediately following.

Didi was born July 27, 1981 in Kansas City, Mo. She proudly served six years in the Army National Guard with one year deployment in Iraq. Didi was married to Gabe Vogl on December 11, 2010. After her son Jansen’s birth on May 9, 2012, as Didi said, she became a “full-time stay at home mommy and wife, and l love it!” Didi was diagnosed with ocular melanoma in February, 2013. However, she never considered herself a victim and utilized this as an opportunity to bring salvation to others through Christ. She had a lightning-quick wit and a spectacular sense of humor. Gabe always said he never won an argument with her.

Survivors include: husband Gabe, son Jansen and cat Tiger of the home; parents Sherrie and Jerry Jansen of Independence, Mo.; brother Jesse Jansen of Lawrence, Ks.; father-in-law and mother-in-law Charlie and Melinda Welch of Raytown, Mo. and John and Debbie Vogl of Marshall, Mo.; grandparents Glenn and Ruth McDonald of Lee’s Summit, Mo.; sister-in-laws and spouses Janie and Scott Joling, Jessica and Mark Beatty, Heather and Aaron Hosack and Jacque and Jeremy McMurray; brother-in-law Zach Vogl; nieces and nephews Trent, Ellie, Evelyn, Wyatt, Brody, Jett, and Henry; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

    I was “battle buddies” with Didi for a short time at Fort Leonard Wood, MO, while thr two of us were xray tech students. While our friendship was short, Didi had a profound impact on my life. I missed her greatly and spent 16 years trying to reconnect with her. I am heartbroken to hear of her loss. Especially so long after the fact. Rest well, Didi, you will be truly missed.
