Obituary - Sharen Kay Mogan

Sharen Kay Mogan passed away February 15th, 2023, due to complications of cancer and other illnesses. She was born November 10th, 1955, in Kansas City, Missouri to Vera and Darrell Mogan. 

She attended school in El Dorado Springs, Missouri where in High School, she met Kenny Gilbert. After a short romance the two were married. From this marriage came three children: Kathy, Kevin and Krystal. Sharen travelled the country with Kenny and Knox Construction, living in multiple cities and states, making many friends along the way.

After nearly 20 years of marriage, Sharen and Kenny divorced (though they did remain friends) and Sharen returned to El Dorado Springs. Sharen worked at different jobs throughout her years in El Dorado, including Dunbrook, S&B liquor and Dollar General. She enjoyed seeing familiar faces while working. Sharen moved to Arkansas in 1998 where she later married Paul Duckson. After a short marriage they divorced, and she returned to El Dorado where she remained until her health would no longer allow her. She then split her time living with her two daughters.

Sharen worried about everything but that worry came from love. She loved her family, her kids and grandkids deeply. She would text every morning “Have a good day luv u” (sometimes at 4:30 in the morning on a Saturday). It is that love that will be remembered and missed by all who knew her.

Sharen is survived by her two wonderfully awesome daughters Kathy Gilbert and Krystal Landon and son-in-law Chris Landon; brother and wife Darrel and Judi Mogan, sister and husband Beverly and Mark Voegele,, sister Carolyn (Susie) Vessey and brother Gerald Mogan; grandchildren, Kassandra, Megan, Darius (Andrew), Dante, Ethan, Amanda, Kourtney, Anthony, Joshua, Noah, Abbigail, Sery and Matthew ; plus 4 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews, cousins and friends. She even loved and accepted all of her fur grandbabies, except Layla. the “annoying, attention seeking dog” (She really did secretly love her too).

She is preceded in death by her parents Darrel and Vera Mogan, sister Edna Still, brother Ronald Mogan and her beloved son Kevin Gilbert.

Services will be held on Friday February 24th at 2:00 p.m. at Bland-Hackleman Funeral Home; 3130 E Highway 54, El Dorado Springs, MO 64744. A “potluck” at Grace UMC 201 East Broadway, El Dorado Springs, MO 64744
