Yvonne Delice (Oglesby) Muckle passed away peacefully to be with the Lord on the afternoon of Sunday, Jan. 29 after a sudden illness. Yvonne was born in Philadelphia, Penn. on January 9, 1931, and was the oldest of three daughters born to Raymond Arthur and Nancy Mae (Bryant) Oglesby.
Yvonne spent her formative years growing up in the small town of Sandusky, Ohio, starting her education at Hancock Elementary School and ultimately graduating from Sandusky High School in 1949. She continued her studies at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio where she was the Homecoming Queen runner-up in her senior year.
After graduating college, Yvonne moved to Inglewood, N.J. to pursue employment opportunities. It was here she met the late Walter Thomas Muckle, whom she ultimately married on April 20, 1957. They became parents to two sons, Craig and Brian, and eventually settled in West Haven, Conn. to raise their family. Once both boys were of school age, Yvonne entered the workforce, becoming a third-grade teacher in New Haven Public School system in 1969. She spent approximately seven years as an elementary school teacher before moving to Roberto Clemente Middle School where she taught seventh grade reading and math until her retirement in 1994.
In 2001, she moved to Upper Marlboro, Md. when the first of her three grandchildren was born. She was actively involved assisting with childcare for many years while her son and daughter-in-law were working or doing other activities. It was during that time she also became a member of the Largo Community Church in Mitchellville, Md.
