Nancy Jensen Vogt Nolan

Nancy Jensen Vogt Nolan Nancy Jensen Vogt Nolan entered eternal life on July 31, 2013 after a major stroke July 7. She lived in the Onion Creek community of Austin, Texas for 33+ years. Born in Rockford, IL on August 25, 1926, Mrs. Nolan was her parents' third and last child. She was preceded in death by her entire family. In the late 1930s, Mrs. Nolan and her mother moved to Chicago where she completed her education and met Leonard "Mike" Vogt whom she married upon his graduation from the Naval Academy in 1949. Five children were born to the Vogt family during the 1950s, the second of whom, Cathleen, died in her infancy. On 18 September 1965, her husband, then CDR "Mike" Vogt, died during the Vietnam "Conflict" leaving a widow and four children 15 to 7. Four years later, Mrs. Vogt married John Nolan, a former Naval officer she had met in 1967. They and the Vogt children lived first in Scarsdale, NY and later in Bethesda, MD. In the late '70's the two Nolans moved to Texas at the behest of former Governor Connally, living first in Houston and then, in 1980, settling in the Onion Creek Community for the longest and final stay of her life. She loved the community, the friendship of the residents and playing golf in her early years there. Mrs. Nolan is survived by her husband, John Nolan; her Vogt children, Michael and wife Sharon, Patricia Gleason and husband Tom, Christopher Vogt and wife Cynthia, Mary Jane Suter and husband Ruedi; plus nine grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren.
