Constance (Connie) Lynn Mogg (Davis)

June 6, 2019

Constance (Connie) Lynn Mogg (Davis), 71, died on October 27, 2018. A visitation and service were held in November 2018 in Independence, MO. And now, a graveside service will be held near Clare, Michigan at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 15, at the Denver Township Cemetery (where the town of Delwin used to be). Come see Connie’s unique gravestone that she designed. At 5pm on Saturday, at the Doherty Hotel in Clare, there will be a buffet dinner in which all family and friends are welcome. Connie died peacefully attended by the trusted staff of University of Kansas Medical Center. She knew that both of her sons were en route to be by her side.

Connie was born on May 13, 1947. She was born and lived in Clare, Michigan – something she was always proud of. While attending Clare High School, she worked a waitress at Schaefer’s. She graduated from Clare High School in 1965.

She flourished at Graceland College in Lamoni, IA. She was House President of Audentia House, but she was always most proud of being a Crescent – Crescents were responsible for welcoming new students to Graceland. She graduated with a B.A. in Education in 1969. She worked as an elementary school teacher at several locations including at a segregated African-American elementary school in Meridian, Mississippi. Connie earned a Master’s degree in Psychology from Lindenwood University. She became a school counselor, and worked in Eagleville, MO, Randall Elementary in Independence, MO, and Gollovin, Alaska (close to the Artic Circle).

In 1969, she married Bruce Davis of Long Island, New York who she met at Graceland. They had two children Neil Davis of Nashua, NH who graduated in the class of 1997 from Lamoni High School and in 2001 from University of Central Missouri, and Drew Davis of Houston, TX who graduated from Graceland University in 1999. Bruce and Connie were divorced in 1989.
Connie was the daughter of Elton J. Mogg and Ruby Callihan Mogg both deceased. Three siblings proceeded her in death, David, who died as an infant, Larry Mogg, and Mary Anne Mogg. She is survived by two brothers, Jerry Mogg of St. Joesph, MO and Bill Mogg of Denver, CO. She is also survived by her two sons and three grandchildren.

Connie resided at Heritage House near Independence Square. An ordained Elder in the Community of Christ (RLDS) church, she was very active in the Heritage House congregation. She was also a volunteer at the Jackson County Genealogy Society, the Pioneer Wagon magazine, and the Heritage House newsletter.

Connie was many things in her life: military wife, mother, home maker, student, pastor, teacher, school counselor, leader, writer, amateur genealogist, volunteer, traveler, minister – at all times she was a caring ear — especially to people who sat in her leather barker lounger with a built-in massager – a luxury she always insisted guests enjoy, but which she rarely sat in herself. If you are unable to attend services, you can honor Connie by being nice to someone. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Jackson County Genealogical Society or the Community of Christ Heritage House congregation.
